You want to stay on top of your business. You need to stay organized, find deals, and keep up your productivity. Keeping all of this in mind can be a hassle, and notes can be lost or damaged far too easily. If you have a smartphone, as most on the go entrepreneurs should, then you can get some help. Whether you are connected to your fancy touchscreen router at home or on the go using up your data, these apps will help you manage all of your business needs. Below are four of these apps that will make your business life a bit easier.
- Uber – Free on IOS and Android
You might be starting off small and you may not have a reliable means of transportation, or you may just be in a bind and you have to get to that important business deal. Uber will solve both of these problems for you. This app lets you request local private drivers to give you a lift. You send the request in the app, along with your location and destination. Then all you have to do is wait for your ride and pay for your trip.
- TripIt – Free version on IOS and Android
TripIt is a fantastic app for the traveling entrepreneur. You can put all of the information for your trips in one place. The app will then create an itinerary that has all of the times, locations, and directions to each place you have to get to. You can even access these itineraries offline! There is a pro version that you can purchase, or use for free with advertisements. This version would cost you $49 per year, but it adds in some pretty neat features. You can get flight trackers, point trackers, refund alerts for flights, real-time flight alerts, and much more!
- Expensify- Free on IOS and Android
Frankly, the constant keeping track of every receipt and expense can suck. You lose receipts, forget a number, and it can quickly get out of hand. It becomes all too easy to lose track of an expense. Expensify takes this headache out of the equation. All you need to do is create a list of reports, then every time you get a receipt you take a picture and send it to the right folder. You don’t even have to input anything by hand. The app scans it all for you and makes sure it’s all organized!
- Basecamp- Free for 2 months then $20 monthly
Basecamp is an incredibly useful app for any project. With Basecamp, you can organize and assign teams of people to certain parts of the project.
