It’s becoming increasingly easy to do everything on your smartphone. Have you ever imagined running your whole business from the palm of your hand though? All you need is something to call, email and access the internet from: and your smartphone can do all of those things. You’re probably even reading this off of yours right now… Hi!
We at DH Business Support love technology and always want to save our clients time on their bookkeeping & invoices. So we point them towards helpful resources that are time efficient!
Get in touch with us about what sort of services we can offer you, but we thought we’d give you a list of our top 10 apps every business owner should have. How many do you have? Share it with your friends on facebook & twitter and see how many they have.
Top 10 Apps For Business Owners
This app is a favourite for many. Evernote is basically a super organiser where you can take notes, store pictures, voice record: everything! It’s great for meetings and is kind of like a bookmarker, which is also synced to your desktop. So next time you see something on your phone worth saving, just click the little elephant and it’ll be on your computer the next time you log in!
Store and share your files in the cloud. Dropbox is popular for a reason! It helps de-clutter all of your files and still leaves you with plenty of memory on your phone. You can store up to 2GB of data on the free version, but can also expand it by inviting friends to sign up or spend a little money for a massive 1000GB of storage.
Meetings on the go! Skype is an instant messaging service, but also is well known for its face-to-face video service too. Don’t be limited to your desktop, meet in a coffee shop or while you’re travelling. You can also share photos and can host group chats with up to 25 people for those of you who have big team meetings with your employees!
This one’s great for business owners who will be selling products. The guys behind iZettle want to help small businesses handle card transactions on the go. Their little device allows you to receive cash and card payments by syncing up with your mobile phone. You can create a library of products and prices for easy access and will receive information about which items are performing best. The app is free, once you get the iZettle card reader.
5. Social Media Channels
Don’t twiddle your thumbs in your spare time, instead, start posting content to your followers on social media: marketing on the go! Top Tip – Evernote will work great with these!
Wunderlist has a super simple interface, which makes it easy to choose and complete day to day tasks. Whether something just pops into your head, or is a reoccurring task – add it quickly, organise the big ones and delegate them to others. It’s really effective!
Online accounting software that’s simple, smart and occasionally magical: Xero offers you a real-time view of your cashflow. It also allows you to create fast and easy invoices for a job as soon as you’ve finished it. It’s in the cloud so your accountant can access everything too!
8. Receipt Bank
Say goodbye to your receipts and say hello to Receipt Bank! It extracts the key information from your bills, receipts and invoices, meaning no more manual data entry. You can then publish the data to your accounting software, download it as a spreadsheet or create your own expense reports. It syncs up to Xero, so both your accounting and bookkeeping are sorted! Get them both!
Typing just got quicker! Instead of tapping you can just swipe across the keyboard to your desired letter. It works extremely quickly and also learns to anticipate what you want to type, resulting in even quicker results. Simple but effective!
Create all the documents you need with OfficeSuite. From PDF’s to powerpoint – it has it all! The interface is very similar to your desktop so you should feel right at home.
