It’s not easy to operate a successful small business today. The competition is intense. And people are still hesitant to spend their money. Your small business, then, needs every advantage it can get. Luckily for us, there are many apps designed to help you grow and maintain your small business. And the Orlando Business Journal recently ran a feature story showcasing some of the most powerful apps for your small business.
A mobile cash register
Square Register is an incredibly useful app. It allows business owners to accept credit and debit cards by swiping a small square device that plugs into to your iPad or iPhone. As the Orlando Business Journal says, no small business that operates mobile locations -- such as restaurants that run food trucks or retailers operating kiosks in busy malls -- should do without this device.
The end of business card clutter
Is your desk drawer full of business cards? You can change this using the CamCard app. After you download it, you can use it scan your business cards and have the information on them automatically entered into the contacts section of your smartphone. As the Orlando Business Journal writes, it’s clear to see how this app will make you and your business more productive.
No more scheduling snafus
Business owners who want to make sure that all employees know what tasks have to be done in a given day should download the free Asana Mobile app. As the Orlando Business Journal affirms, this app allows managers to create personal task lists that employees can also open. This allows staffers to understand which tasks are getting done and those that should be scheduled.
