Business ownership is no walk in the park. You have to manage every single aspect of the company, from finance to human resources and project management. It entails a massive amount of responsibility and requires vast amounts of time, as well as an ability to cope with several competing tasks simultaneously.

If you’re running a small business, it is a good idea to draw upon all the help you can get, and one way of doing this is to stock up your smartphone with a series of excellent apps that should be part of every business owner’s collection. There are apps to help with employee communication, project management, time management, task organisation and payroll, to name just a few aspects of running a business. Some of the best apps we’ve come across include My Minutes, which keeps track of your progress for certain tasks and also allows you to set minimum and maximum time constraints; as well as IFTTT, which enables you to use one app to automatically program activity in another. How’s that for killing two birds with one stone?

This infographic from All Finance Tax profiles 10 apps that will certainly provide great benefit to anyone who owns a small business. Check out the full list below.


  • What a great post and I really love the infographic. One thing I would add is that a lot of these apps focus on communicating between managers and employees, which is very important, especially when considering that many SMBs operate a deskless workforce. However, the apps offered are a kind of work around the problem and use communication and task management apps that aren’t meant for business use. Connecteam is an employee app meant for managing your deskless employees and you can also create your own branded app. It will appear in Google Play sotre or Itunes store with your own brand.
