Every business these days is looking for innovative ways to increase productivity and free up valuable resources. Today we highlight a few apps that have proved useful for our small business customers:
We use this app internally and have quite a few customers who use it. Basically, it is a 3rd party content indexer that works very well with Outlook. It pulls the searching and indexing out of outlook (pst and ost) and moves them into a text-only index. It turns out that much of Outlook slowness in searching is related to display times and not search times. By removing the display part of the equation, Lookeen enables super-fast searching. You can easily search 50,000 items in under a second. Pro tip: turn off attachment indexing if you don’t need it for better indexing performance.
This is another useful app. This app isn’t meant to simplify your business operations. Instead, it will help you manage your travel in on “plane of glass”. TripIt is a travel-based app that can help you book your flights, car rentals, trains, buses, etc. instantly. It is quite easy to use and is perfect for entrepreneurs who are always on the move. If you are into a business that requires you to travel frequently, try subscribing to TripIt.
This smart app is built act like your virtual assistant and to handle a number of your daily calendar operations. It is also known as ‘calendar with brain’. It can help you deal with your appointments effectively and in a timely manner. It can also find the social profiles of people who you are planning to meet, helping you learn more about their background before meeting them.
