5 Apps That Help You Run Your Business From Your Smartphone

Here are 5 apps that help you run your business from your Smartphone.

 1. SLACK  – Imagine all your communication in one place, instantly searchable, wherever you go!

Your team is what keeps your business going. How do you make sure you’re in contact with your team even when you’re on the move? How do you manage to respond to their queries, check on their progress or collaborate on plans when you’re not physically present in the office? Well, there is Slack.

Slack gives you real-time messaging, file sharing, one-to-one as well as group conversations, and inline images and video with rich link summaries. It also integrates effortlessly with Dropbox, Asana, Hangouts, Twitter and more. Slack is indeed on a mission to make your working life simpler, more pleasant and more productive.

2. Skype Schedule, attend and host meetings with anyone connected to your business.

As a SME owner, you spend a lot of time reaching out individually to customers, prospects, partners or even potential employees. Face-to-face interaction is critical for you to build and nurture relationships. A Skype video call is a perfect alternative for a face-to-face meeting – it’s just as personal as a traditional meeting and you can schedule it sitting anywhere, and at anytime.
