mobile-616012_300x225We live in a world that is easily accessible with our fingertips via smart phones. Running a business can be hectic, but luckily, smart phones give us access to many different ways to help the adventure run smoothly. With a few simple taps, you can get apps that do a lot of your most pressing business tasks for you, or make them significantly easier. These apps have the potential to ease your headaches and give you peace of mind knowing that your tasks are getting handled. Let’s take a look at some of them.

  1. Addappt

Life happens. Sometimes it causes the people in your circle, business partners or friends and family, to change their phone numbers, addresses or email addresses. Keeping up with these changes can be difficult when trying to run your own business. Addappt lets them update their contact information for you, giving you one less thing to worry about. You can also use this app to organize contacts into groups and send them messages, making business communications a breeze.


  1. Rescue Time

Distractions can happen throughout the day, so you may need some help with time management as a business owner. Rescue Time can help you track your activity to maximize your productivity. This app tracks the time you spend using websites and applications and sends you detailed reports of how you might be more productive. Seeing these details can help you to minimize distractions and make the most out of your business day.

  1. Evernote

Gone are the days when it was necessary to take notes in the form of random scraps of paper you could easily lose track of. Evernote allows you to easily take notes by typing on your device or using a stylus, and you can even add photos. All of your notes can be backed up to the cloud for safe storage and easy access from any of your mobile devices, making organization of your ideas easier and more efficient.

  1. Expensify

When you’re on a business trip, it is important to keep track of your spending. This can be a daunting task. With Expensify, you can easily track your expenses in a couple of ways. You have the option to link your credit or debit card to the app so that it can automatically generate an expense report when you make a purchase. If you’d prefer not to link your card, you can take pictures of your receipts and the app will organize the necessary information that way. Either way, an easy expense report is available to you, giving you one less thing to worry about while you’re trying to handle business on your trip.

Technology has revolutionized the way we do everything, and there is no reason not to take advantage of the perks, especially when running a business. There are easier ways to deal with the numbers and organization accessible on your smart phone, so ease the stress, because you can and deserve to.
