Pipedrive is a powerful sales application which helps you to keep track of your sales pipelines on the move. It is a sales CRM for small sales teams and businesses that’s designed to help you manage deals more efficiently and give you more control over your sales results.
Pipedrive for iOS allows you to access all of your contacts, deal history, to-do lists and meeting notes that are in the web app wherever you are, and all changes are instantly synced. There’s offline syncing if you’re going to be traveling for a while without access to WiFi or a data plan. Pipedrive aims to manage all aspects of your business including to-do lists, contacts, phone calls and an agenda of activities with potential clients.
Like the web app, Pipedrive also allows you to look up customer and deal details wherever you are, access files related to your contacts and deals, and record or type meeting and call notes.
When I Work Employee Scheduling (More commonly known as When I Work) is an iPhone tool to manage your employee work rota. With When I Work, you can schedule and communicate work rosters and rotas with your employees, create and manage employee schedules and shifts, and track time and attendance from your iPhone, iPod Touch or Mac.
Employee scheduling and attendance can be a real headache so When I Work attempts to make things a little easier by taking the burden of organizing and monitoring things from your shoulders.
When I Work is a shift scheduler and time clock app that uses text messaging, email, push notifications, and the web to communicate, alert, and notify your staff about the current work schedule.
Employee scheduling apps such as When I Work, Jobber, and Acuity Scheduling are becoming increasingly popular with small businesses, and the developers of When I Work claim that more than 10,000 businesses and half a million users in more than 50 countries rely on When I Work for employee scheduling, time clock, and communication.
One thing about making lots of contacts at events, conferences and exhibitions is that you inevitably end up with lots of business cards. The question is, what to do with them? FullContact Card Reader is a clever way of dealing with the problem by allowing you to scan cards into your iPhone and have them transcribed.
It can automatically import them into your iPhone, CRM or other app contacts so that you have their details at your fingertips at any time. FullContact Card Reader automatically scans business cards into your iPhone contacts, Salesforce leads and, over 250 other apps, such as Pipedrive, ActiveCampaign, and MailChimp. Accuracy is particularly good compared to similar products because FullContact Card Reader actually uses a team of real people to then transcribe the cards into contact information that you can then import into your iPhone.
WORK[etc], (full name WORK[etc] CRM + Projects + Help Desk), is a holistic approach to small business management which, as the elongated name suggests, manages to stuff a lot into a one package.
WORK[etc] integrates CRM with project management, billing, customer support, and more in an attempt to create an all-in-one business management platform. The obvious advantage of WORK[etc] is that it brings all major business needs under one umbrella and so there’s need to contract third-party services for the essential aspects of running your business.
According the the developer, 1,200 businesses already use WORK[etc] to satisfy their small business needs including CRM, project management, billing, help desk support, reporting, and collaboration.
One of the best ways to increase the revenue generated by your business is to sell more products to existing customers. This often means going mobile with your sales. Fusebill is a mobile credit card acceptance solution for subscription and other recurring payment-based businesses.
It allows you to take payments anywhere, anytime, meaning you grow your business and sales faster. Going mobile with your sales can work out a lot cheaper and easier than trying to generate sales elsewhere, although if you only have one product this is undeniably somewhat more difficult.
If your business uses JIRA, no doubt you’ve been in a situation where you know a JIRA task exists for a particular task but you can’t quite put your hands on it. Or, maybe you’ve been without your laptop and desperately needed to update or manage an important JIRA task.
Surprisingly, there’s no official JIRA app for mobile, and JIRA Connect is designed to fill this gap. JIRA Connect is a third-party application that puts JIRA tasks at your fingertips no matter where you are. JIRA Connect is ideal for those that can’t or don’t want to use laptops in meetings but want to be able to recall a specific JIRA task at a seconds notice.
Or, if you’re constantly on the move and need to keep an eye on the latest JIRA tasks your team is working on, JIRA Connect provides a convenient way to manage JIRA tasks on your mobile device. JIRA Connect is not simply a web version of JIRA. It uses JIRA’s REST API which plugs straight into JIRA and requires virtually no configuration although it only works with Atlassian JIRA 5.0 and above (earlier versions of JIRA are not supported due to their lack of REST API support).
Presenting analytical data is an important but sometimes dry task. Roambi Analytics attempts to make the process a whole lot more interesting and dynamic.
More specifically, Roambi understands that business decisions increasingly need to be made on the move and the app aims to deliver crucial figures or results to your mobile device with style in order to seal a deal, ensure the successful running of your business, and uncover new trends in your data.

Do you ever have a moment in which you thought you really liked something, but then over time you started to feel the opposite? This sometimes happens to me with apps. I’ll write a raving review, and a few weeks later I’ll start to notice issues that didn’t make themselves known early on, or they were noticeable but weren’t annoying just yet. Luckily, I’m often given a chance to review apps a second time when they’ve received a major update, which provides me the opportunity to provide are more impactful analysis on whether the app is worth its weight in gold.
On this occasion, I’m taking a second look at noidentity’s Next, which enables you to track day-to-day expenses to get a big picture of your spending habits. In my initial review, I stated that Next was really fun to use, and that “between the design eye candy and extremely enjoyable sound effects, I actually look forward to entering an expense.” In September, version 2.0 of Next was released, giving me a chance to reassess what makes the app good and no so good. Read on to find out how my opinions have changed. (more…)
