Plenty of apps to help with business, personal life

There were apps, apps and more apps discussed when the Women in Business Regional Network met in Kadina on Monday, June 17.

The women met at the Royal Exchange Hotel and shared with each other their experience of using apps to help make their business and personal lives easier.

The range of apps discussed covered timekeeping, invoicing, business card storage, scanning, graphic design, team management, CRM, point of sale, note storage, vehicle logbooks on the business side with other apps to assist with organising family life and communications discussed too.

“It was so wonderful to have all of the women openly discussing what works and doesn’t work for them,” network founder Carolyn Jeffrey said.

“It’s what the network is all about – sharing, connecting and supporting each other.

“Whether we like it or not technology is increasingly invading our lives but, instead of resisting, we can all benefit from embracing the opportunities they present to assist making our lives easier so we can concentrate on other things.”

Carolyn said many of the handy apps were available free of charge or could be tested for a limited time without charge so users could assess their value and usability before committing to a payment.

“For me juggling eight chapters of the network, as well as running my own busy business, I don’t think I could do it without a suite of apps to help automate many processes,” Carolyn added.

You don’t have to be a member to attend the network’s events.  They welcome business owners, managers, employees and those dreaming of owning their own business.

The next Yorke Peninsula events, on Monday, July 29 at Kadina and Tuesday, July 30 at Ardrossan, will be focusing on how to get noticed in Google searches, even without a website.
