These tools will help with organisation, communication, marketing, management, and more.
Here are our best ten apps to help build your business:
APPS TO KEEP YOU ORGANISED
This app is a digital notebook that lets users document ideas and organise and prioritise tasks. Gone are the days of scribbling down dot points on a piece of paper. This app ensures you can access important information anytime from your phone or desktop and invite others to write comments.
Pocket helps business owners to more effectively browse the internet. The app creates a space where any videos, images, posts, and articles, across any platform can be saved so you can easily find and view them later. This means anything you read online that can help your business can be accessed by the touch of a button, even when you’re offline.
