I have a confession to make, I’m a bit of a tech geek and I love software for business owners. I have tried lots and lots of technology over the years and more recently apps.
This has really helped me to create RTS Financial Planning and deliver a fantastic financial planning proposition to clients at a fair price.
I have been able to build up a large list of software and apps that I really rate and thought I would take this opportunity to share a sample with you. If you’re a business owner or thinking of starting a business I think you will find at least one of these really useful.
I’ll provide more in the coming weeks.
5 great apps and software for business owners
#1 G Suite
Description: Google apps including email, calendar, file storage and so much more. Very low cost and much easier to set up and maintain compared to Microsoft. No need for an IT company if you are a smaller business. Allows you to work anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. Google also integrates so well with so many other software and apps.
Description: Online booking system that allows you to customise a web page that links directly to Outlook, Google and iCloud calendars. You can setup automated email and text reminders. Clients can book their own meeting and everything else is automated.
Description: Online phone system, no need for traditional handsets and BT. You can set up a local UK number and make calls from the mobile app or via your computer. Very low cost.
Description: Note taking app that works on computers, tablets and smartphones. You can type notes, draw using a stylus and record voice. Has some great indexing and search functionality and all stored in the cloud. You can even set up templates.
Description: Electronic signatures. Clients can sign via their computer, tablet or smartphone.
If you are thinking of starting a business or have recently launched a business and want to make it better I would love to meet up for a coffee or via video link and see how we could help. I would also be happy to release my entire list of useful software and apps on request.
