You need these business apps

March 6th, 2014

It’s tough to operate a prosperous small business today. The competition is fierce. And consumers are still hesitant to spend their dollars. Your small business, then, needs any advantage it can get. Thankfully, there are many apps designed to enable you to grow and maintain your small business. And the Orlando Business Journal recently ran a feature story presenting some of the most powerful apps for your small business.

A mobile cash register

Square Register is an incredibly nifty app. It enables business owners to accept credit and debit cards by swiping a small square device that hooks up to your iPad or iPhone. As the Orlando Business Journal says, no small business that operates mobile locations -- such as restaurants that run food trucks or retailers operating kiosks in busy malls -- should be without this device.

The end of business card clutter

Business cards can make your desk drawers and inboxes a disorganized mess. But with the CamCard app you can scan these cards and automatically store the information they contain in your smartphone’s contacts list. This is a great way to become quickly more efficient.

Keeping your employees on track

You need your employees to know what your small business must accomplish in any given day. Luckily for us, the Asana Mobile app will help you do this. This app offers you the power to create a daily schedule for your business that your employees can also access. Once employees view the schedule, they can select which tasks have been assigned and which ones need taking care of.
