Business Apps to Boost Your Company’s Productivity

business

We live in a mobile world. In 2014 there were more than 6 billion cell phone subscriptions across the globe. That is almost one phone for every person on the planet. Because of this, companies are moving to mobile apps to help boost productivity in the work place. Do you want your business to communicate more effectively and have more collaboration? Use the business apps suggested by us to help do just that.

Tracking your expenses can be a huge pain. It takes a ton of time and you have to constantly remind yourself not to throw away all your receipts. With Expensify you can streamline this process. This clever app allows your to scan your receipts, upload and then sync them with Quickbooks, Salesforce and many other applications. It allows you to file your receipts in folders for specific projects or trips and then lets you submit your expense report by just pressing a button. It will automatically import all card transactions and can track your mileage, time and other reimbursable expenses. The basic version is free. You can also upgrade to Professional, Team or Corporate versions for a cost. The most expensive being $11 per submitter per month. 

Evernote

Branded as, “The workspace for your life’s work”, Evernote is more than just a note taking platform. Yes, you can write notes and create project plans with Evernote, but it does so much more. You can store research, share information with a group of people and present your ideas all on the same platform. It also syncs with your devices making it easy to keep all your information close at hand. Evernote comes in three versions, free, Premium ($5 a month) and Business ($10 a month per user). 

Things

Many small business run into issues with time management. With Things you can manage all your tasks in an easy-to-use interface. It will help organize your tasks by what you want to complete today, what you want to do next and what projects can be pushed off. Each day, Things will give you a daily review of the activities scheduled so that you never miss a project deadline. It has searchable tags so you can find entries quickly. It also syncs with your other devices so anything you change on your phone will show up on your tablet and vice versa. It can be used on iOS for $19.99 or on Mac for $49.99. 

30/30

Who says you can’t mix work with play? That is the the principal of 30/30. Focus on a single-task for 30 straight minutes and then take a mental break for 30 minutes. Wash, Rinse, Repeat. But that isn’t necessarily realistic so 30/30 does so much more than that. This app allows you to plan your schedule, and time it accordingly. Need an hour for your emails and a 5 minute break? Schedule it. You can focus on a task for as little as 1 minute or as long as 1 hour. And you can create as many as 10 days worth of tasks without ever repeating one. Tasks are assigned a special color, when it is time to do that task, the screen will change colors to alert you. 30/30 is a simple way to make staying on task possible.  By setting time restrictions and monitoring activity each person is kept on task because they know it’s only for a certain amount of minutes. This app is free and available to Apple users.

These four apps make increasing productivity easy. By staying organized, managing your tasks and making sure your expenses are up to date, you can ensure a more collaborative and efficient workplace. Have you used any of these apps before? Do you have suggestions on other apps that can increase productivity? Let us know in the comments below!
