Concur is, legitimately, the one travel/expense manager that would rule all of them. Yes, you in all probability already use it, or have been dazzled by the chances of its up-and-coming competitors, however, from Concur’s expense management tools, to its ability to sync with your workplace for essential approvals, to the simply exported expense reports, this app — even when it is cliche — is cliche for a reason.
TripIt makes itinerary planning straightforward, by storing all of your various reservation numbers in a single place for quick access. All I do is forward my reservation confirmation emails, and TripIt builds a master itinerary, complete with everything I want. This tool, now owned by the monolith Concur, was created by a founder of Hotwire.
Full disclosure: I’m the chief business officer at CircleBack. However, regardless, I find this app good for business travel, something I have been doing throughout my entire career. It maintains all my contacts, brings them together in a single place and keeps them deduped, accurate and updated. It even notifies me when there are changes, so I can get in contact with potential prospects the minute they begin in on new decision-making positions. It also has slick business card scanning and email sig capture.
With quite a lot of apps for flights, car rental and hotel booking, Skyscanner makes it straightforward to compare bookings, find the best worth and book in app. It is nice for booking on-the-go when those “unexpected” journeys arise.
I’m a little bit of a foodie, and, between meeting with potential clients over power lunches and treating himself on the finish of the day, Yelp is a no brainer, with its reviews, menus and address-tracking.
The lifetime of an government, particularly the chief business officer, is crammed with contracts. Docusign makes executing contracts easy and, more importantly, mobile.
Once I work trade shows, Handshake is my go-to app. It permits a whole sales-order process to occur in a beautiful app that mechanically reports sales back to your business for processing. It also offers on-the-go glances at essential client info (previous orders, account assignments and more).
8. Google Drive
I live and die by Google Drive and am able to collaborate and review with my content team anywhere. Whether I’m sharing documents, tracking my groups’ output or reviewing/adjusting our content calendar to know what’s coming, it all happens here.
Any respectable skilled should live by Twitter. At an instant, you’ll be able to check out influencers, top blogs and news from where you are not. You may also view your team’s social media stats for the week and keep track of the ever-shifting business.
Even once I’m elsewhere on the earth, teamwork and deadlines loom. The Asana app lets me communicate with my team, view deadline progress and escalate/manage tasks from anywhere. Anybody who manages a team with deadlines and output goals wants Asana.
