5 apps we love for better business image

We know running a business can be time consuming and with so many things to juggle, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. So we thought we’d ease some of that pain with our five favourite apps to make business life a little easier.


Deputy is leading super smooth employee scheduling and workforce management software. Great for businesses with a large number of employees, Deputy allows your employees to view their timesheets, swap shifts, clock on and log off, apply for leave or request unavailability and more. This app can handle most workforce management requirements with ease and versatility.


Salesforce is an industry leading customer relationship management platform (CRM). Businesses of all sizes can connect with their customers by using the latest innovations in cloud and automation technology.

The app version, Salesforce1, allows you to stay connected with your clients on the go. Salesforce1 is the experience of Salesforce from any device, bringing business processes together anywhere, anytime. There are different levels of customisation available, so you only use what you need to build your experience around your requirements.


Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for teams. And it’s not just messages, but files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets can be dropped into Slack and shared with anyone you choose.

Slack users see an average 48.6% reduction in internal email, helping make work life more productive. Sounds good to us!


Say goodbye to time consuming email back and forth for scheduling appointments, meetings and calls. Simply set your availability preferences in Calendly, share your personal Calendly links with clients and colleagues, they pick an available time and the event is added to your calendar. Super easy and stress-free meeting times? Tick!


Don’t have a traditional scanner in your office? iScanner turns a piece of paper into a document on your smartphone. From there you can either save it or send the document directly via email from your phone. We love the convenience of this app as you can scan things on the go without even being in the office.


Take advantage of the enormous benefits the apps provide to your business in terms of productivity and time saving.
