So now you know why using mobile apps could benefit your business? Now, let’s take a look at some examples of apps designed for companies to look into
Effective communication is the backbone of almost every business, no matter which sector or industry you’re in.
And there’s one mobile app that can let you talk, message, and meet with your clients, prospects, teammates, and more, all in one place.
Dialpad is a cloud-based platform with both a desktop and mobile app (PC, Mac, Android, and iOS) that has the ability to make VoIP phone calls, send instant and SMS messaging, do video conferencing, and more.
If you’re wondering what the “and more” includes, Dialpad also has a contact center platform that’s fully integrated into its app, meaning agents and supervisors can handle customer communications on their phones. Generally speaking, most people prefer using their computers for this, but if they need to, they can do that with Dialpad.
The unique thing about Dialpad is how robust its mobile app experience is. Many UCaaS and CCaaS providers say they have mobile apps, and they do, but often, functionality on those platforms is more limited. For example, Dialpad’s Salesforce integration is fully functional, even on its mobile app—which is something that you won’t find with most other communications platforms:
When you’re unavailable, you can use the call forwarding service to automatically send missed calls to another device, auto-reply to SMS, or set up an auto-attendant. There’s also a visual voicemail feature (again, thanks to Dialpad Ai) that turns your voicemails into readable messages for convenience.
Call flip lets you move calls from your cell to your computer or vice versa (and you can also launch a call or video conference right from a messaging thread)
All your business phone system needs including IVR, smart call routing, and call recording
Loads of integrations including Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, and Salesforce
The ability to manage your finances from anywhere is essential, and Wave gives you a range of invoicing and accounting software for doing business mobile-style. It’s designed to help entrepreneurs connect their bank accounts, sync expenses, balance the books, and prepare for tax time.
There’s a dashboard for viewing customer transaction history, and you can run multiple businesses in one account and perform bulk transaction updates (everything’s backed up automatically in the cloud).
If you enable Payments by Wave, you can get paid in as little as two business days, with customers clicking a “pay now” button on invoices (the payment feature is pay-per-use, whereas the other functions are free).
Create and send personalized invoices from wherever you want, in any currency. You’ll get notifications when an invoice is viewed, becomes due, or gets paid.
Set up recurring billing for repeat customers—payment information is synced automatically with the accounting function.
The receipt scanning feature means you don’t have to keep hold of the paperwork. Scan it with the app, and Wave syncs it with your account.
Create exportable accounting reports showing profit/loss, sales tax, and cash flow.

Social media is one of the best ways to stay engaged with a loyal customer base, and Buffer provides social media scheduling and analytics, but it’s less Insta-centric. It’s aimed at small business owners who want to track the growth of their engagement and following.
You can visualize planned content for major social networks on a simple dashboard, and set reminders for Stories. You can also publish content on an automated schedule or choose a custom time for each post.
Buffer offers a free plan (publishing only) and a paid plan with analytics and engagement tools ($5/month per social channel). An add-on pack offers extra tools for team collaboration.
View unanswered comments and skip to the most important ones with the help of hotkeys and labels. Smart alerts tell you if a post has questions or negative sentiments.
The Analyze feature shows you the optimum time to post, how often, and what sort of content.
The analytics dashboard shows performance across multiple accounts and insights into specific channels. Compare paid vs organic results, measure posts and hashtags, and create reports.
Buffer has integrations with tools like Canva, Feedly, and PicMonkey.
If you’re still scrawling notes and losing them from time to time, then it might be time to look at using a mobile note-taking app like Evernote to digitize all your information in one safe place.
It also lets you take notes while you’re out and about, or during a call. They’re synced automatically to all your devices so you can see them even when you’re offline. Evernote even has task management capabilities, so you can create to-do lists and share them with your team.
The app is compatible with iPhone and Android and integrates with Google Drive, Slack, Outlook, and Gmail. There’s a free plan and two paid tiers (Professional is for business use, $7.99/month), plus Evernote Teams for extra collaboration.
If you do have handwritten ideas, Evernote’s built-in camera can record and decipher them (it can identify handwriting in 11 languages, plus 28 typewritten ones). You can also create audio recordings.
Add images, audio, and documents to your notes, with multiple colors for highlights and text. You can also save and mark up helpful web pages.
Evernote’s flexible search capabilities make it easy to find the notes you need.
Add due dates and reminders to your own tasks, and (in the Professional tier) assign them to others and track progress.
