Looking for the next step in managing a small business? The answer may just be in the palm of your hand.
From depositing a check, to reading the news, to tracking our every footstep (scary?), mobile phones are transforming the way that we work and live. As you might be aware, WorkingPoint just released a mobile version of our financial management and accounting suite (check it out at workingpoint.mobi). We are really excited about this development and in the spirit of all things mobile we thought we would research and share a few other exciting developments in the SMB [this stands for Small to Medium Business] mobile app world (Disclaimer – we do no endorse any of the below mentioned services, they are simply examples of how much you can do with your smart phone).
For all you small business owners and freelancers out there, mobile innovation can mean increased productivity with reduced paperwork, more efficiency and less time. Best of all you don’t have to be near your computer! For example, new apps like Schedulicity enable users to organize meetings, appointments, classes or any other event in the life of a busy person on-the-go. Other apps, like DocuSign Ink, provide small business owners with a free, secure way to sign important contracts and documents. And for those working on their own, applications like iFreelancer make it possible to search, save and filter jobs directly from their phone.
These are just a few of the myriad offerings that are available for your smart phone, we recommend investigating further – you will likely be pleased with what you find.
As always please leave comments below or contact us with questions about accounting, financial management or anything else!
Cheers from our business to yours,
