Multitasking plays an important role in
small businesses. The last thing that you want to do as a small business owner
is waste time. To help you save time and multitask efficiently, Apple has
designed a number of iPhone and iPad apps that although are little known at the
moment, but have the potential to create a buzz in the digital market. These
apps are particularly meant to bring efficiency in your day to day business
operations. A few of them are:
4 for iPad
Bento 4 for iPad has
recently been redesigned for the iPad and is basically a personal database app.
This particular app has made it easy for businesses to organize their data. If
you are wondering what sets Bento 4 apart from the regular spreadsheet tools,
than you need to know that it makes it possible for you to combine tables and
text fields along with images by merely dragging and dropping boxes on to any
of the 40 free templates.
If it is
making a catalog for sales meetings that you are interested in, make sure that
you use Bento 4! It is also best for building detailed contact lists and
managing multi-level projects. You can sync it with Bento’s desktop software
for the Mac and it costs a mere $9.99.
Ink: an electronic signature facilitator
available on Androids, DocuSign Ink is the world’s prime personal electronic
signature generator available worldwide. Docusign Ink allows you to import
documents from cloud drive or take pictures through the camera of your
handheld. Basically, it would be converting the imported documents so that you
have the ability to drag your pre-set signature onto it. Once done, you can
save and send it out.
best part about Docusign Ink is that you can sign unlimited documents without
paying a penny. However, there is a limit of five additional signatories, after
which you would have to purchase its $15 a month yearly plan!
Invoice2 is powerful
invoice software, which is easy to use and customizable. It allows you to
generate and send invoices as well as calculate estimates over your iPhone or
tablet. To start with, you need to come up with a ‘mater list’ of standard
billable items. You also have the ability to use a plugin called ‘Receipts2go’
to bill for client-specific supplies. When the invoices are made, you can
easily print them out or email them straight from the app.
part about Invoice2Go is that it features a reporting tool, which makes it
possible for you to work out your finances in a single glance. Three invoices
can be created free of charge, whereas the paid plan for about 100 invoices is
charged at $24.99 a year.
