Mobile apps are becoming an increasingly important part of business today. These are now tools that help businesses grow and run smoothly. These five apps will help businesses stay in contact, improve customer relations, and more than likely, contribute to business success.

Evernote for Business


This app is all about staying organized. Evernote helps users not just create to-do lists on the fly, you can also dictate to it. You can then index your notes and make them completely searchable. Evernote for Business also lets you invite colleagues to collaborate on “Business Notebooks” and then publish the information so the entire company can review it.



The industry standard CRM solution, Salesforce, released Salesforce1 – a customer platform to connect all your apps, devices, customer data that is stored in the Sales Cloud to provide business agility in a mobile solution. This “next-generation” CRM is focused on developers, software vendors, and customers to connect to other business apps.

Google Drive


This cloud-based file storage and synchronization service from Google provides an easy way to share and edit files both individually and as a group. Google Drive works hand-in-hand with Google Docs, the company’s version of office-style products you can use to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations. This way, when you are stuck in an airport, you can still collaborate with colleagues back in the office.



This web and mobile application is designed to enable teamwork without the use of email. Asana combines tasks and conversations together to increase productivity within a team. The teamwork communication manager allows users to create projects, tasks, tags, notes, and comments and organizes them in an inbox and updates in real time.
