5 useful apps for business owners

5 Useful Apps for Business OwnersRemember those days when our mums would send us to the super market, with a note scribbled “Remember the milk!”. Things like these have just turned into nostalgia, as a majority of everyday tasks are now managed by web and mobile based applications, thereby revolutionizing the way we live! Most of these enormously useful apps are free, and even if paid, they cost less than a movie ticket or two.

At WEBO Power, we also want to revolutionize the way you manage your entrepreneurial venture, and bring to you some of the smartest mobile applications that will assist you in managing your business better.

There are a number of occasions when a client needs to see the product list immediately or you need to look up and revise your costing right away, and you wish you had access to all your office files on your mobile!
CloudOn is an application that allows you to use Microsoft Office on your mobile phone. While there are many applications that do that, this productivity improvement app allows you to not just view the documents, but also share/ create/edit your documents and even store them on the cloud, helping teams collaborate from anywhere, at any time. CloudOn beautifully integrates Office features and makes the translation seamless on the phone and tablet platforms.

Every business owner is flooded with millions of things to do, where you need to prioritize, track and schedule your activities. Wunderlist is a beautifully designed app that not just looks spectacular, but also is very simple to use as compared to the zillion ‘to-do’ apps available in the market.

How often do you find yourself with stacks of cards, of which many are lost, forgotten and untraceable when required. In comes CardMunch! A very handy app that allows you to take pictures of your cards, and this is translated into your phone contacts. It also shows you the LinkedIn profile of the contact with all the common connections. The only drawback is that it is only available on the iOS platform right now, and we would love to see the Android version soon.

Handling a business involves dealing with the finances of the company.
