Your small business, then, needs any advantage it can get. Fortunately, there are lots of apps designed to help you grow and maintain your small business. And the Orlando Business Journal recently ran a feature story showcasing several of the most powerful apps for your small business.

A mobile cash register

The Square Register app is an especially useful one for small business owners who operate mobile kiosks or food trucks, according to the Orlando Business Journal. Once you download this free app, you can accept debit-card and credit-card transactions through a small square device that hooks up to your smartphone or tablet. Although the app is free, you will have to pay a fee any time you use Square Register.

The end of business card clutter

Is your desk drawer full of business cards? You can change this with the CamCard app. Once you download it, you can use it scan your business cards and have the information on them automatically entered into the contacts section of your smartphone. As the Orlando Business Journal writes, it’s easy to see how this app will make you and your business more productive.

You need all of your employees to know what your small business must accomplish in any given day. Fortunately, the Asana Mobile app will help you do this.
