4 Apps for Your Mid-Sized Business

There are plenty of small business apps on the market. Most of these are pretty basic (especially the free versions). Many are just a step up from the apps you might use for personal and social purposes. However, there comes a time when you need apps that aren’t focused on helping you do it all yourself. As your company grows, you need apps that help you delegate and standardize how work gets done. Here are a few apps that can help you make the transition from startup to mid-sized business:

Expensify

Have you ever noticed how easy it is for the ink to rub off of receipts? Stick them in an envelope and they do the “disappearing ink” trick in just a couple of weeks. Of course, the whole receipt can easily disappear too. If you’ve got employees who regularly expense items, they’ll love this app that lets them scan and digitize their receipts right away. They get reimbursed and Accounting will enjoy the accuracy of the PDF expense reports workers can generate for submission.

Intuit GoPayment

Do your employees make sales on the go at trade shows and conventions – or door to door? The Intuit GoPayment app works with a variety of smartphone supported card readers that make it simple to capture customer payment data. GoPayment integrates with QuickBooks for easy bookkeeping of mobile sales. You can choose to pay a monthly fee or a transaction-only fee based on your sales volume.

Package Tracker Pro

Maybe you’re ready to take your business from local to nationwide or even global. You absolutely must have a finger on the pulse of your logistics operations. The Package Tracker Pro app allows you to track packages from all major carriers (UPS, FedEx, USPS, and more). This means you’re not tied to using one carrier as rates change.

Zendesk for Android

Zendesk is a cloud helpdesk application that’s well known for giving employers the tools to manage service requests with superior efficiency. Now, customer service can happen anywhere, anytime as your employees address tickets from their mobile devices. You can cut response times and give helpdesk representatives more freedom at the same time.
