There are no limits to productivity.  Every small business owner will tell you that productivity is the one thing they are constantly trying to improve – because it has no bounds and reaps huge benefits.  Especially with the use of technology, efficiency can grow in leaps and bounds.  With computers getting smaller and phones being more than phones, the office is now truly mobile.  Let's take a look at some mobile apps that will help you continue to push the boundaries of productivity in your business.

Evernote

The aim of Evernote is to be an extension of your brain, but with a perfect memory.  Imagine being able to note, record or snap a shot of all the conversations, meetings and ideas you have throughout each day – and then having them prioritized and synced with your computer.  All those notes from an investors meeting are instantly filed and sent to your Mac or PC. The clever advertisement you stopped to take a shot of can now be viewed, sent (anywhere) and searched for text.  And all of this is done with geolocation tags. Evernote does it all, intuitively and with ease.

Minibooks

If you have used the online version, Freshbooks, then Minibooks will be a pleasant mobile upgrade for you.  If you are new to the series – welcome!  Minibooks is a fabulous way to keep track of your time spent on clients and projects, and then bill them.  You will keep your outgoing invoices organized and updated, as well as the incoming ones.  Even if you turn the app off, the timer keeps going so you will always know just how much time each client is taking up.  Plus, all this valuable billing information can be synced with your Freshbooks account so that you have all the data in one place.

Intuit GoPayment

What could be more efficient than taking a payment for services rendered onsite, in a meeting or at a conference?  Simply punch in the client's credit card information and your payment is on its way to you!  This truly is for the small business owner, as $1000 in transactions per month is the cap before having to pay and extra fee.  The app is easy to use, quick and flexible.  If seem to always be waiting for checks to clear tracking down clients so they can pay their bill, then Intuit may be the app for you.

Dragon Dictation

There have been many attempts at voice recognition software, and just as many failures.  Making it work on an iphone adds a whole new level of difficulty.  However, there are a lot of Appolicious reviewers claiming that Dragon Dictation has finally got it right.  One such reviewer even claimed that "It's understood everything I've said!".  If the voice recognition is actually THAT good, then hurrah!  Voice to SMS, email or documents (via the clipboard) would be a lifesaver while on the road or anywhere else that requires hands free.

Each one of these business productivity apps will make your daily travels more efficient.  Just knowing how much time and effort you are saving through the use of these apps will make your day go more smoothly.
