How Mobile Applications Can Increase Your Efficiency at Work


Modern technology offered a myriad of Mobile Applications (Apps) that can help increase the efficiency for specific occupations and industries. There are several realistic examples of how organizations can solve business problems and achieve increased productivity by merely downloading different Apps.


If you do not believe me, you better read this article from top to bottom. Technology as expressed in Apps can help the employer and the employee to save time, money, and effort.


Best of all? All of the Apps that I will mention are FREE to download!


Start by bidding farewell to your stock of colorful “sticky notes” on your desk. Then, download Wunderlist. It lets you craft to-do lists wherever you are. Be driven closer to Wunderlist not only because it is free, but also because it is extremely user-friendly. Create as many lists as you desire and file them in appropriate categories. This will ensure that your data remains organized.


Upon signing up, the lists that you will make will be saved in the “cloud”. Last minute ideas are important. So, access your lists while grocery shopping in the evening. It is totally up to you!


Furthermore, you may share your lists with your co-workers. It allows you to assign tasks and set due dates to multiple users. This will come in handy whenever you have an upcoming group project. Wunderlist is available on iOS, Android, Windows, Kindle Fire, and the Web devices.


The second App focuses on strengthening your security. In this day and age, information has become on of organizations’ most valuable assets. The risk of breach can come from a minute source such as the password. Fret not as the Keeper is a good option to compile all of the office’s passwords. Only the group administrators have the access to manage the account and its users.


This App will eliminate the need to stick notes near the computer screens and to hunt down for missing passwords. Your IT guy will thank you for this! Keeper is available on iOS, Android, and Web devices.




The third aid is none other than the iRemit App. For business owners whose clientele resides in the Philippines, it is important to transact in a secure and swift manner. This is where the trusted remittance service provider – comes in. Accomplish your online transactions within 2 minutes by downloading the free iRemit App at Google Play and iTunes.


The next example highlights the operations of major retail establishments. Most of these establishments rely heavily on the Microsoft Excel for planning, auditing, and sales tracking. The store managers and the regional managers manually enter the information into multiple systems. This allows them to focus more on the monetary target. Microsoft Excel is available for iOS devices. While, Android devices can download the Microsoft Office (i.e., it includes Excel, Word, and Powerpoint).

Finally, there is an App dedicated to preserving concentration and preventing distractions. AirDroid allows its users to receive and send messages on the screen that they are already focused on. Installing it is a two-step process. You must download it on your Android device and your work computer. Another feature that will come in handy is being able to remove all the files from your phone’s internal storage. Talk about privacy!


As you digest these nuggets, may you come to a realization that it is not healthy to convert to Mobile Apps for the sake of it. Take it as an opportunity to create real value and business solutions instead. Apply these ideals to your Philippine business.


Merely mobilizing a situation is not sufficient to increase the employee or employer’s productivity. What matters most is the user experience.
