~by Kara Masterson~

Rapid advancement in mobile technology has seen mobile app developers go into a craze to churn out app after app. In fact, there are mobile apps for almost any task that comes to your mind. The portability and processing power of mobile devices make them the most popular devices among business people today. There are thousands of mobile apps out there, and every company may need different apps depending on its needs. Here are four must-have apps to help you run a successful business.

 

1. Evernote

You no longer need a pen and paper to take your notes today if you have a smartphone or tablet. Writing on paper may be a tedious activity, especially the mishaps that can easily take place: accidental tears, defacing, or loss of paper notes. With a smartphone or tablet, all you need is Evernote to help you take and organize your notes in a manner you like. The mobile app allows you to format your text or add a voice recording to make it more personal. You can send quick notes to your suppliers and customers, as well as take minutes during meetings and store them in your mobile device for future reference. If you are still in love with handwritten notes, never fear. Evernote allows you to create an ink note that resembles your handwriting.

2. Google Maps

The olden days of having to spend hours on end trying to locate a place a particular area are over. Most mobile devices come preinstalled with Google Maps. If not, just hit the AppStore and download it. Every business needs this app to locate their suppliers and customers’ premises from their mobile devices. If Internet connection is going to be a problem, just download several maps to your device and you can use them even when you are offline. Unlike the traditional paper maps, Google Maps are easy to use and quite convenient. They offer various options, such as search, tagging ,and history. Besides, you don’t need to be an IT expert to use them.

3. Apple Pay

Making and receiving payments is an integral part of every business. Conventional methods, such as banking, can get a little challenging, especially if you have limited time on your hands. Thankfully, Apple has introduced a faster solution by integrating an NFC chip on its iPhone 6 devices. Just add security information in the form of a biometric feature, and you are ready to go. Apple Pay can run smoothly because Apple partners with various payment services to make the transfer of funds possible via its mobile devices. You will access your MasterCard or Visa on your device, making it possible to receive and send money in a fast and easy manner.

4. GoToMeeting

Every business needs a reliable communication mobile app to remain on its feet. This is especially the case for busy organizations that need to keep in touch with both clients and its workforce to ensure maximum uptime for its services. Keeping in touch can be quite a challenge, especially when you have a large number of people to pass messages to and you are always on the move. The GoToMeeting app is essential because it allows you to dial in with only one click. You may also want to check out its updated version, which is not only faster but also quite reliable.

Thousands of apps are out there to make your work as a business person quite easy. For making and receiving payments, use Apple Pay, while Evernote will do well for keeping and maintaining your notes. Connect with your staff and clients through GoToMeeting and use Google Maps to locate any place on the globe. These mobile apps will make your work enjoyable and very efficient and convenient.
