As a business owner, you know how challenging is to manage everything when you travel on business, or you’re just out of the office for the day. The good news is that with more advanced technologies, faster internet connection and smarter devices, you can handle almost all business operations from a smartphone.
Thanks to digital technologies you can take advantage of the power of mobile and run your entire business from a distance. Smart apps allow you to check stats, analyse trends, track profits and even accept card payments on the move.
Want to run your business quickly and efficiently from your smartphone? Here are some useful apps to help you go mobile.
Time management and tracking
Time is money. But money can’t buy you time, every business owner knows. Fortunately, there are mobile apps that can help you better manage your time and plan your business tasks with ease. Creating to-do lists, syncing calendars and tracking hours per task are just small part of the features that any app for time management has. All you need to do is choose the app that fits your needs in the best way.
Communicating and attending meetings
When you travel abroad on business, something urgent always comes up at the office. But that’s fine because with apps like Skype and WebEx you can be virtually anywhere you want to be. They make video conferencing a piece of cake, even when you’re on another continent. Scheduling, hosting meetings, exchanging documents – all can be managed from your mobile device. Just get your team on a video call and solve the problem with no fuss.
Social media marketing
Social media not only provides powerful advertising opportunities but it also helps you build a community, gather customer feedback and humanize your brand. That’s why you should never leave social media behind, even when you’re on the go.
All of the major platforms – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest – have mobile apps. But if you want to master social media, equip your phone with a mobile app which has more advanced capabilities and features.
For example, Hootsuite offers a mobile app, which consolidates all social media profiles in one place and allows you to schedule posts, sync accounts and track analytics and engagement. It’s a great tool that simplifies social media management and helps you make the most of your presence and client interactions.
Accepting and making payments from your phone
Yep! That’s possible with the myPOS Mobile app. Thanks to the Virtual terminal, you can easily key in card details and accept payments from anywhere. The Virtual terminal turns your smartphone into a credit card reader – one that’s with you wherever you are.
The myPOS Mobile app also enables you to pay partners, agents and suppliers. You no longer have to visit your bank for every little task – with a few taps, you can send a bank transfer to any bank account or a payment request to your clients. Thus, you will save a considerable amount of time and enjoy faster payments.
But myPOS Mobile app goes far beyond accepting and making payments. It’s packed full of information and cool features that can help you manage your business finances and make well-informed decisions on the fly.
The app enables you to track transactions, check activities, account balance and sales history. Besides, you can control your myPOS Business Debit Cards by setting spending limits, restricting certain transactions, such as online payments or cash withdrawals.
We know that as a small business owner you have a lot on your plate and things can get a bit messy sometimes. But there is a raft of tools, apps and features that can make your job easier. So, next time when you struggle with finding a solution to a problem – stop and think again. Maybe there’s an app for that!
