Many entrepreneurs come from within the world of business. Working for other people has helped them realise that they could get better results, and more job satisfaction, from working for themselves. For such people taking the plunge into founding their own business can come as an initial shock, forcing them to live on their own wits and skills. Fear not, because as a recent article in Entrepreneur magazine revealed, there are a number of handy apps to help start up entrepreneurs along the way. Here, Glowing Global review the article and talk about how apps are transforming business.
“Technology is becoming smaller, more portable, and also more user friendly, as shown by the huge success of mobile apps”, said Ricco Katona, director of Glowing Global. “It’s often said that there’s an app for everything and as the online article shows there are certainly lots of great apps for people running businesses. That’s why there has never been a better time to start your own businesses, with the help of an app or two.”
People who work for others have a support network of people around them, from sales advisers, to accountants, to personal assistants. A start up entrepreneur is ostensibly on their own at first, but they can find similar help at the touch of a smart phone screen. One app mentioned in the article is called Trello. It’s a highly customisable task list, and as your business expands Trello can also be used to tell your team what to do and when they should be doing it. The next app on the list is Liquid Space. This app centres upon local workspaces. Simply tell it what you’re looking for and the app will come up with ideal solutions.
Of course, busy entrepreneurs aren’t only looking for high quality office spaces, they need high quality fuel as well. GrubHub helps the user find great food outlets that are nearby, and perfect for business people who move around a lot. One app that’s been getting a lot of airtime lately is Concur. It makes keeping track of your expenses simplicity itself, which saves you time and money when it comes to completing your accounts or tax returns.
“There are so many great apps on the Entrepreneur list, and the best thing of all is that they’re all so different”, said Ricco Katona. “From Zoom, making mobile video conferencing a reality, to the taxi alternative that is Uber, apps are making our business lives easier and more efficient.”
