Mobile applications are so much a part of our daily lives that we sometimes don’t notice that we’re using them. They allow us to seamlessly switch from one device to another, storing our data in the crowd for ease of access. They also allow us to work on the go, no matter where we are, as long as we have a smartphone and a 3G connection.
But with so many different apps on the market – over two million on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play – it can be difficult to know which ones are the best ones to go with. That’s why we’ve pulled together this article sharing just a few of our favourites. Let’s get started.
Mobile applications for business and enterprises
Slack is a real-time communication tool that allows your team members to stay in touch across multiple locations and time zones. With support for text chat and video chat through public and private chatrooms and private messages, it’s a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening at your business. And with the mobile app, you can also stay on top of things while you’re on the go.
This service is designed to check spelling and grammar and is recommended by every novelist and college paper writer under the sun. In a business setting, it can help you to make sure that web copy, emails and other important written content is free of spelling errors and grammar mistakes. This is particularly important considering that a single typo could cut online revenue in half.
Google Docs is the perfect tool for when multiple people need to work on the same document. With all changes tracked and backed up to the cloud and the ability to make changes on it from multiple devices in real time, Google Docs is a no-brainer for collaboration on the go. That’s especially true if you download the smartphone or tablet application.
Upwork is a platform for connecting clients with freelancers, whether it’s a college student buying a CMO hiring UX specialists and VR developers. The mobile app allows you to post job listings and to interview candidates on the fly, speeding up the process and ultimately helping you to get the job done much faster.
DocuSign might seem like an unusual app to include on this list, but it can be great for finalising and signing paperwork on the fly. With its smartphone app, you can collect digital signatures and make official documentation without any need to print anything, and you can change the terms of the agreement following discussions on the client from within the app.
Now that you know which applications to get started with, the next step is for you to start downloading some of them and having a play with them. Take some time to familiarise yourself with each of the apps on this list and then decide which ones are best for you. It’s also worth having a browse of your app store of choice and see whether any other apps catch your eye.
Remember that mobile applications are only useful if they’re adding some value, so if you find that you’re wasting time with these apps and they’re not helping you or your team to be more productive, get rid of them. There’s no right way or wrong way to go about doing business, but using these apps is right more often than it’s wrong. Good luck.
