7 Apps for Start-Ups

  

mobile apps

From media consultant to marketing manager, customer service and specialist, small business owners need to be able to manage many different fields to maximize the business's productivity. As it can get confusing managing all these aspects, it's good to have apps that help you become a better entrepreneur. While some of these apps are free, some require a monthly fee but it's worth it.

Evernote
Evernote will help you get organized. You can collect pieces of information from the web, tag them so you can find them easily, and then embed pictures, tables, audio and video. With this app, you can access all of your business content with a few taps on your phone wherever you are and on all your devices.
Evernote helps you get organized as the app helps you sort out your company information into separate notebooks; for instance, business docs, coupons, flyers, insurance info, receipts and expenses. Once you've had them organized, you can even share them with your business partners or staff. In the folder of expenses you can save bills and receipts you have previously scanned with the app.
Wave
This app is an accounting software created for small businesses with fewer than 10 employees. Wave will turn you into a financial expert and accountant in not time. If you have problems sorting out your finances, this is the app for you. It tracks sales and expenses, manages invoices, pays employees, scan receipts and generates reports. It's like having an accountant but without having to pay for one and being able to directly manage everything yourself.
This app allows you to customize your expense/income categories, and then you can see them in a graph. You can also take a picture of your receipts and turn them into complete accounting transactions. The app also generates accounting reports and invite the people you trust, like business partners, assistants and accounting professionals, to help you manage books.
Toggle
This app is a time tracker. This app helps you see how you spend your time so you can maximize your productivity. It allows you track projects, view graphs, export time sheets and sync your output with several other project management apps.
As you log your hours, you see how you spend your time and you get an overview of the hours spent on different tasks and projects. The project Dashboards allow you to keep track of which tasks take the most time and how profitable your projects and clients are. The dashboards also allow you to find out who are your most productive team members.
One reviewer said that Toggle is “easy to get team started tracking their time. Toggle has a browser extension, desktop app and mobile app to make sure there's no excuse to not track what you're doing. I also like how ‘real time' all the apps are. When I start a timer, it is started across all the apps and I can interact with the timer wherever is easiest at the time whether it is the mobile, browser or desktop app. The design is also great and easy on the eyes. The pricing is amazing for startups too, it's free for pretty much anything.”
When asked what business problems they are solving with the product, the reviewer said: “A new team doing new things and we're trying to understand where our time is going. Using Toggle has begun to help us get a handle on our time allocation for customers and projects. It's great for transparency! It's great for transparency! It's great for transparency!”
Upwork
This is a great app for small business with small teams. With a database boasting professionals in all fields that can work as freelancers, Upwork allows small business to hire freelancers per project. All they have to do is post a job on their platform and then you'll be automatically matched with the right freelancer for the job. “Hiring freelancers allows businesses access to sharply-honed skills that simply aren't available elsewhere,” said Upwork CEO, Stephane Kasriel.
This app allows you to browse freelancer profiles, reviews and proposals, interview them and then hire them immediately. The platform allows you to chat, share files and collaborate with just a few taps on your phone. You can even make payments with it.
