Over 30 billion apps have been downloaded in the last year alone. But how many of these apps should businesses seriously use?
The four most important aspects of working remotely or from a mobile device are: secure access, easy communication, efficient expense tracking, and the actual doing of work on your phone or mobile device.
Here are 4 mobile apps that facilitate remote access for running a business:
1. For Accessing your Data Remotely - TappIn
Whether you use Cloud storage, Dropbox, Sugarsync, TappIn allows you to access your data (wherever it’s saved) from any mobile device at any time. TappIn is the best solution for securely and remotely accessing your data.
2. For keeping in touch and telecommuting - GoToMeeting
Never miss another meeting again! This allows users to participate in meetings via their mobile device. Not only does it allow you to verbally communicate with other people attending the meeting, but it also allows you to see charts and graphs that are being shown at the meeting.
3. For keeping track of your expenses on the go - Expensify
Having trouble keeping track of business expenses? Expensify’s SmartScan works with your phone by taking a picture of receipts of business expenses (recording the date, time, amount, etc.) and organizing that information within the app by syncing your bank accounts and credit cards to keep clearer track of spending.
4. For doing work - FormMobi
Also known as the digital clipboard, this app makes it easy for people in the field (away from a computer/office) to design and fill out customized forms. A great app for a wide range of other professions, because it allows users to share multimedia style (including video, pictures, and graphs in your customized reports/forms) information with clients and coworkers.
