The very best apps for business in Australia
Australia’s start-up scene is ready to take on the world. In this article, we give you the lowdown on the top 4 apps for business.
If you’re a business owner, you’ve probably found out already, you can’t do everything yourself. You need help! The problem that many small businesses face though, are small budgets.
“We just can’t afford to hire too many people.”
This is where apps save the day!
In 2017, there is an app for everything. There is an app that gives you detailed weather reports, an app that tracks how many miles you’ve cycled today, and even an app that tells you jokes!
However, for business owners there are specific apps that help to solve key problems that are slowing you down. Choose the right app, and you can boost productivity and really kick your business into gear!
In celebration of getting stuff done, let’s take a look at the best apps for companies in Australia.
Ever had one of those days in the office where you’ve tried to do too much and burnt out? We all have. It happens. Business owners sometimes think they’re super heroes who can do a million different things all at once.
If whittling down your task list to six tasks or less is difficult for you, Streaks can help. It’s an app that makes sure you give your all to six tasks or less, therefore ensuring you only focus on the high-value stuff while cutting out the low-value material. It motivates you too, by outlining exactly what needs to be done today.
Streaks is available on the iOS, and costs $5.99.
If you’re not an artist and can’t afford to pay an artist to design your business cards, presentations, leaflets, or even eBook covers, Canva saves the day. Canva is one of the best Australian apps for businesses that like having a whole team of artists in the palm of their hand.
It’s so simple to use. It’s stuffed with templates that you can blend with your own images to create awesome, eye-catching designs that will wow your customers!
Canva is available on iOS, and is totally free.
One of the hardest things about being a small business owner is the pain of having to keep track of your finances. It’s not easy! But PocketBook assists with this.
This is a useful app that helps you keep on top of your incomings and outgoings so that you know where you’re at. It’s compatible with all the major Australian banks, and it keeps track of as many accounts as you need it to. It also categorises accounts, separating your business account from your personal one.
PocketBook is especially useful if your business needs to manage its budget better.
It’s available on the Android and iOS, and is free to download and use.
Had enough of invoices? Want to literally kill Microsoft Excel?
Before you give up, check out Invoice2Go – an app created by freelance programmer Chris Strode.
Strode had the same problem many of us have, and needed an app that would make it quicker to write out and send invoices, as well as keep up-to-date with outstanding invoices.
As a few bonuses, his app also helps you to monitor how well your business is performing overall, as well as lets you receive payments and offer quotes in it.
It’s available on both iOS and the Android, and is free.
These are some of the best apps for companies in Australia that will help to give your productivity a shot in the dark. With so many developers getting better and better at evolving awesome software for smartphones, we can’t wait to see what’s on offer next year.
