If the demands of managing your small business sometimes feel overwhelming, there are thousands of productivity apps available that can help you do everything from delegating tasks to keeping on top of your business expenses. All apps aren’t create equal so how can you tell which will be the most effective in helping you manage your business more efficiently?
In our Mobile Apps Series TechRecs we feature the apps we believe would be most beneficial to you. This month we will cover Streak, Dwolla, and Eternity Time Log.
If your company uses Gmail or Google Apps, Streak is a great CRM that integrates with both. Streak lets you group emails from contact in one view so you know where they are in your Pipeline. The Pipeline template can be customized for use for sales, product development, HR processes, or just about anything else that can be similiarly organized. Streak is available in four plans, beginning with a Free Plan which offers Unlimited private boxes, 50 shared boxes, 200 tracked emails per month, and Email Power Tools.
Dwolla is an ecommerce application that provides online payment systems and a mobile payment network. Anyone in the US can use Dwolla’s web or mobile application to send and receive money. Dwolla has a broad menu of business payment tools that allow you to collect payment on an invoice, send one time or recurring payments or payments to thousands of people at the same time. The application offers detailed, downloadable reports that make record keeping a breeze. Dwolla’s free account allows users to send and receive payment. If you are looking for more powerful features, Dwolla offers an enhanced paid version.
Eternity Time Log
Eternity Time Log is an application designed to not only log the time you spend doing things, but show you just where you may or may not need improvement. Productivity extends beyond your work life, and Eternity Time Log recognizes that. Eternity has five views. Activities, Favorites, Logs, Reports, and your Settings dominate the menu across the bottom of the screen. You can tap each of these categories to enter a particular view. Your day is first broken down into three broad chunks: Work, play, and sleep. Within those groups, you can further track your time with different labels and tags, even running multiple timers at once. You can view the results using colorful pie charts and reports that can be exported to any device. If you are looking to better manage and prioritize your time, Eternity Time Log is a great solution. The app is available in iTunes for $4.99.
