It’s no secret that we live in a digital world. We have come to heavily rely on the internet, our smartphones and mobile applications to guide us through our personal and business lives. From social media, calculators, time tracking tools, photo apps, messaging and more, it’s almost impossible to navigate the world without being connected to people and things digitally.
When it comes to smartphone apps, here are the X apps that are must-haves when it comes to business:
Gmail and Outlook:
On average, people check their email up to 20 times per day. We can’t always be in front of our computers. When it comes to important correspondence, there is something to say about the convenience of being able to check and respond to emails while on-the-go. Although Gmail and Outlook are the most used email apps, there are apps available for almost every email platform on the market.
Customer relationship management tools are important for tracking, planning and growth. If you have a team that travels or visits offsite with clients, then adding meeting notes to a CRM tool is vital.
Project Management Tools:
Collaboration tools like Trello, Monday or Asana help your teams stay organized with checklists, reports, due dates and more. They make team communication easy.
Every business needs to have a presence on social media in this day and age. And every social media platform has an app available. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn and the four most widely-used social media applications all have extremely user-friendly interfaces that make posting content to your business easy.
Zoom or Video Meetings:
With online video meetings becoming the norm in 2020, having a video app available on both your phone and computer are crucial components to keeping touch and maintaining relationships with clients and prospects. Zoom has cornered the market when it comes to video apps, but Google Meet comes in at a close second.
With most of these apps being free, it's almost a given that you should be utilizing these applications to help you manage your business from your smartphone. They make life easier, more flexible and make it simpler to stay organized when you are away from your desk.
