Five ‘O the best: Apps for small business

Five ‘O the best: Apps for small business

We love keeping it simple. Which is why we love apps! From the weird, wonderful and wacky (check out the top 12 weirdest apps here), lately there seems to be an app for anything. But the apps that we love the most are the ones that simplify the mundane. And save time.

We’ve curated our five ‘o the best apps for small business. They’re our favourite apps that all small you will love. If you haven’t already, download them and revel in that extra time saved.

1. Mailchimp

Email marketing on the go! With just a few taps, the app lets you manage lists, add new subscribers, send campaigns, and view reports. Create a campaign on your desktop or tablet, and send it from your iPhone or Android once it’s approved to go. We love the ability to look at the reporting on the go.

2. CamCard

Lose your fabulous new contact’s business card no more! There’s no doubt cards are easy to lose and time consuming: who has the time to input contact information manually? CamCard automates the process. Snap a shot of the card with your iPhone and the app’s text-recognition software will pull out key details and update your address book automatically.

What’s more – check accuracy by logging in to CamCard’s web app and validate contact information against the photo of the business card.

3. Dropbox

Using Dropbox means never leaving an important document or file behind. Using the Dropbox app for iPhone means having access to those files and documents from anywhere, at any time. It takes just a few seconds to install the app on both your desktop work machine and your iPhone. Once you do that, your files stay synced across all your devices. Genius!

4. Pocket

Pocket allows you to save great content you find on the web. Once saved to Pocket, the content is visible on all your devices. One of our favourite features is the ability to create Tagged categories: never again be unable to find that awesome article your clients would love (or funny cat video).

 5. IFTTT

This is a Krafty Kat fav – she loves putting the Internet to work for her. IFTTT lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement — if this then that.

IFTTT is an app that automates your digital world. IFTTT can help with everything from providing alerts when your company name is mentioned, automating and tracking engagement with customers, and keeping track of moves by competitors.

Bonus Ap: Tiny Scan

TinyScan turns your iPhone into a mini scanner for documents, photos, receipts and other texts. With TinyScan, you can scan your documents at anywhere and store or email them as PDF files. And it’s free!

See you next week,

Darnelle

    Cannot thank you enough Darnelle for putting me on to CamCard, all cards scanned now save to their server, my email and the phone, If only I’d had this before losing years of collected contacts.

      Glad you liked it Wayne! It’s saved us loads of time too. We’ve gotten really crafty by teeing up SamCard / CamCard to talk to IFTTT… Database management? Easy! Stay tuned for more of our best in the coming weeks. D
