With advances in technology and smart phones, it is now easier to run a business than it has ever been before. Whether the business is small or large, there are great smart phone apps available that can improve your company. Many of the business apps available allow for the company to save time and money; the goal of every business. While there are a lot of great business apps available, here are 5 top apps that can be downloaded from your mobile phone’s network or wi-fi offered by your internet service providers.
Expensify allows someone to expense a business trip. Most businesses will not repay the employee for something on a business trip unless they can provide a receipt. This means that they have to try to hold on to every receipt which can sometimes be tricky! Expensify allows you to log each expense and then take a picture of the receipt. All of this information is stored in the app, so there is no need to try to save everything.
Tripit is an application that helps with business trips. It can be hard to keep track of all of your flights and hotel reservations on an extended business trip, but the Tripit app will now do all of that for you. After all of the travel information is entered into the app, Tripit will then make an easy to follow itinerary.
Dropbox is a great business app that businesses of all sizes can use. To use the Dropbox app, the business must first download Dropbox onto their computers. Dropbox allows for anything to be safely saved and stored on their systems. Anything saved in Dropbox can then be accessed from any computer or smart phone. This allows for everyone in the business to have all of their important information with them at all times on their smart phone. This eliminates the need to have to print out reports and give them to everyone; they can now have them electronically on their phone.
Square is a great application for small businesses. Square allows any business to be able to process credit card payments with a smart phone. There is no need to buy all the expensive credit card machines when you can download Square. Once the credit card information is entered into Square, it is instantly transferred to the company’s bank and customer’s credit card company.
