Screenr – Tools that rock!

Clear and concise communication is one of the most important aspects of running a business (and for that matter…life).  In today’s global world, being able to communicate clearly via email  is even more critical.   There is one tool that we use at BrightGauge that enhances how we communicate with our customers, with each other, and our prospects that we now couldn’t live without.  It’s called Screenr.  

Screenr is a very easy to use screencast tool that lets you record your desktop (or a portion of it of your choosing) add a voiceover while recording, upload the video to their site, and have a link to share in minutes.  The video quality is HD and reliability of the service is top notch.  And it all starts from a little shortcut on your desktop:

We use lots of collaboration tools and software solutions at BrightGauge (including our own) but without core communication tools like Screenr so many things would be “lost in translation”.  If you work in any team environment where email is a primary way of communication, try using Screenr to help enhance what you’re trying to say.  

Here is an example I just did in a minute (no voiceover… don’t want to wake anyone up here!)
