As a franchise owner in the senior care industry, you can use your smartphone in a number of ways that help you succeed, but you have to know the apps that can help you do so without wasting your time.
If you’re looking for some new apps to help you become a better, more productive franchise owner, here are ten examples that can help you start getting more done today!
This easy-to-use app helps you take notes, plan assignments and make lists from anywhere. If you are a detail-oriented person, it helps you stay on top of your workload, and it includes functionality to aid in collaboration.
Similar to Wunderlist, Trello helps you stay organized with lists, notes and assignments through a visual, board-based interface. If you’re familiar with Pinterest, you will probably catch on quickly to how Trello works.
Yet another option for taking notes, keeping lists and collaborating with others is Evernote. It uses a simple, clean interface that allows you to integrate text, images, video, PDFs, webpages and other media easily. Evernote is a terrific choice for productivity if you are torn between Wunderlist and Trello.
Caregivers, clients, franchise representatives and others populate your “contacts” list, and it can be difficult to keep track of them all. Addappt helps business owners manage their contacts with easy updating and the ability to categorize contacts simply and effectively.
Asana provides a single location for franchise owners and their team members to connect and share communications and tasks. Adding files, links or images is easy with Asana, and the app is free for teams of 15 people or fewer.
The Google Drive app provides tons of storage for virtually any file type, and it ensures that you’re always just a click away from your work, no matter where you’re located. The Android version of Drive also allows you to scan documents, making it easy for you to add receipts, sketches and hand-written notes.
Speaking of scanning, one of the most popular apps for business owners is CamScanner, which is available on all major platforms. Just point your phone’s camera at any document and convert it into a searchable PDF almost instantly.
Polaris Office is a full suite of applications for managing, creating, editing and saving documents without a connection to the internet. If you’re looking for a way to work with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents (as well as PDFs) on the go, Polaris Office is worth investigating.
Dropbox is one of the more popular solutions for secure file storage and document sharing. It works directly with a number of useful applications like Word and Photoshop, and it’s supported on a wide range of platforms, ensuring that you always have a way to access your work.
According to the experts at PCMag.com, RescueTime is “…simply the best time-management app we’ve ever tested.” If you’re wondering how you can squeeze more into each day, this amazing app can help you get more done by providing a detailed analysis of how you actually spend your time.
