The rise of the smart phone has opened up a whole new world when it comes to productivity and working on the move. But when it comes to the business apps that I couldn’t live without these days, here’s the top three that made the final cut:
More than just a business app which ‘scans’ (afterall we can easily just take a photo of documents when on the move) – this app creates some pretty sharp PDFs and detects the page frame automatically (ideal when trying to scan in the back of a taxi hurrying to the airport)! It’s also got some seriously ace filing features.
The developers behind this business app for electronically signing documents have got everything covered. The ultimate in flexibility, I can use it just as easily at my desktop as I can on the move (which is often). Import documents, sign and send – it’s as simple as that. Means I can be confident I’ll never miss a deal deadline, and it works even when you’re not on wifi or 3G (see my travel tips on keeping data costs down).
You might think business cards are a thing of the past in this techy world, but you’d be wrong. I meet a lot of people and business cards have in the past been a huge administration nightmare. Not with SamCard! I simply scan the business card straight to my contacts – hand the business card back to the owner… then send them my vCard by email straight away. Contacts secure. No paper wasted. Happy Days!
