5 apps every business owner should have

Mobile Apps for Start-up Business Owners

When it comes to technology, if you snooze you lose. And why snooze when technology can bring order, structure, and innovative ideas into your professional and personal life? You want to work smarter—not harder—and here are 5 apps that will help you accomplish just that.

David Helmer, contributing writer for the Austin Business Journal and CEO for Revation Systems, shared what he felt were 5 apps that every business owner or entrepreneur shouldn’t live without.

1. Evernote
Evernote is an app you can use across all your devices (iPhone, iPad, personal computer) to keep track of things both business and personal. Notes from meetings can be easily tagged and searchable and then reminders can be placed on the notes and shared with others in the company. You can use Evernote for to-do lists, shopping lists, or for personal reminders such as anniversaries or birthdays.

2. LastPass
LastPass is a secure password management service and app that can also be used across devices. It allows you to save your passwords in the LastPass vault and not have to remember and type passwords for all the various sites and online services you utilize. You can create secure notes for credit cards, insurance cards, memberships, Wi-Fi logins, passports, driver’s licenses, and more. Store the information you need to keep safe and private. You can even attach documents and images to your secure notes. LastPass backs up your files automatically, so you always have a secure, digital copy.

3. Box
Box is yet another service and app combo that can be used across that allows you to securely share and collaborate with our employees and customers regardless of device or location. There are a lot of great cloud file-sharing services (Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox among them), but Box stands out for its security, content sharing, and viewing tools. Box makes it easy to share and update on whatever device you happen to be on.

4. Trello
Trello is a visual organization and collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. You can see the fine details of a project to the big picture all in a glance which is a huge time and cost saver for any business owner. It’s also easy to share, add others to collaborate, and assign cards and tasks to others.

5. HubSpot
HubSpot is an integrated marketing tool that addresses everything from email marketing to blogging, social media, and targeted inbound marketing. HubSpot has also recently released mobile apps for iOS and Android. With HubSpot, you can see the progress on your marketing activities, get notified when you have new leads, publish and monitor social media, and really take action on any marketing tasks from your mobile devices that would previously have required you to be at your PC.

Five apps and five opportunities to bring some sophistication and simplicity into your work day.
