The Colorado startup community is home to a number of such companies that make our lives easier and our processes more efficient with the use of tech.

Collaboration and productivity go hand in hand. No employee is an island, and if you can’t connect and work with your peers efficiently and quickly, productivity suffers. Nimbulis offers a cloud-based business collaboration platform that enables deeper communication among teams and across departments using collaborative workflows, updated in real time. Team members can assign one another deadlines, communicate about new opportunities and share critical information in one online platform. productivity tools Colorado

A poorly planned product roadmap and a lack of clarity about organizational goals can cost a business both time and money. Recently launched startup aims to change that with a productivity tool that helps organizations better leverage data, insights and ideas from their teams. By gathering ideas in real time and scoring and analyzing those ideas collaboratively, businesses can prioritize product developments and more clearly align employees with company-wide goals — ensuring efforts (and budgets) are all focused on the right initiatives.
