As the business world grows ever more competitive, gaining an edge over rival companies becomes more important than ever before. One way in which modern businesses can gain such an edge is by using a range of applications – both mobile and on desktop computers and laptops – in order to make their operations more efficient and profitable. The key function of many applications is to complete as much work, and store as much data, as possible, so that the business owners and managers can get on with selling their products or services and keeping clients happy.
We looked at what the must have apps are for your business this year, and how they will help your operations.

Many businesses suffer due to ‘client suspicion,’ where many receive invoices and think ‘has that much work really been completed?’ Office Time will allow you to bill all clients accurately for every minute worked, and allows you to keep detailed notes of the jobs that have been completed.

All that’s left is for you to prove you are worth the money they are paying.
While there are thousands of stunning business applications available, using examples of the three we have explored will save you a great deal of time and money, while making your business easier to operate.
