So without wasting more time, let’s begin with list of best business apps…
In the world of business, one of the most annoying things are the expense reports that you need to hand in every time you spend a single dollar on company’s account. With Expensify, this is successfully streamlined, allowing you to simply scan the receipt and then put it in the right category. The user interface is very simple and intuitive, making for a very comfortable experience.
Asana is a project management tool that is being used by more and more companies. It also comes with an app that provides almost complete functionality when you are on the go. It allows managers to oversee their teams, assign tasks and make sure that everyone is doing what they are supposed to do. For employees, it is a great one-stop shop for all of their responsibilities and tasks.
Uber is not necessarily considered to be a business app, but since they started providing Uber for Business services, they have become truly useful for the business person on the go. With Uber for Business app, you can easily find transportation which will automatically be billed to the company’s account. Companies love this new service and users of the app since it is much easier for them to track who has been hiring cars and when.
Meetings are an inseparable part of very business experience and in the modern world, meetings do not have to take place in person. Of course, there is need for an app that will make it possible for all of the team members to meet online and GoToMeeting is the best such app on the market. It not only enables everyone to attend a meeting remotely, but it also helps people hold presentation online. It is also very secure, ensuring that no one gets access to any sensitive data that might be shared during meetings.
All business people need a cloud storage service that will allow them to store their business data online so that it can be shared with their colleagues. The best such service and app right now is pCloud, for one very simple reason – security. Namely, thanks to their advanced encryption methods, pCloud ensures that no one can access your sensitive information, no matter how much they try. It is also extremely simple to use and offers quite a bit of storage space.
LinkedIn has been around for years, but its app has only recently become as useful as the desktop version. It finally allows for great connectivity on the go, allowing you to do everything you can do on the desktop version. To put things simple, it is still the best tool for connecting with other people from your industry, which is something all business people can appreciate.
All these business apps are my personal favorite ones. There might be many other similar business apps for different platforms which might be good than these apps but according to me above listed business apps are the best fit for everyone’s business needs.
