Business & Apps - Free business apps

Free business apps

There are so many applications available today, that can increase productivity, speed up communication, and insure a fruitful collaboration across projects, that it's difficult to decide which are the best apps, and which should take the biggest slice out of a company's IT investment budget. Fortunately, not all such applications cost a fortune; there are some good and reliable free business apps that can make the workload considerably easier to manage.

Any manager will have to decide, at some point, which core operations cannot be entrusted to the free business apps, and which non-essential aspects can be solved using these variants. Most likely, nobody will want to entrust the precious billing processes and the invoices to a free application, which doesn't insure the same level of control as the paid ones. Certain things cannot come for free, and that's unlikely to change in the future.

There are other downsides to free business apps as well; for instance, many of them are supported using advertising (after all, the developers have to get a paycheck from somewhere). In cases when speed and accuracy are essential, the ads opening all over the screen may become very frustrating; if it takes more time to close the ads than to actually work with the respective application, it's definitely not worth it.

In other cases, the free version of an application will add a watermark or another type of signature to your documents. While these free business apps may represent a quick solution when you desperately need to edit a document and you have no alternative, they project an unprofessional image. You can't let you clients think that your company is so cheap that it can't even afford a license for an application, in order to insure its documents are properly edited.

There are also applications that are not free, but have either a free lite version, or a trial version. These can be very useful, as they allow you to see their features and capacities before paying anything, so you can make an informed decision, and pick the one that suits your needs perfectly. There's really no downside to using them – except maybe for the fact that your drive may end up filled with various downloads of free business apps that you never even had the time to test.

Perhaps the most useful tools are those that are not specifically targeted at businesses; they're available for all types of users, but they're great at improving productivity and comfort while working. For example, applications that allow a better control over the brightness settings of the screen – particularly important for people who spend eight, ten hours a day looking at the same screen, and who need improved comfort settings in order to keep working.

Also, there are applications that remove all distractions – they hide away the instant messaging tools, the e-mail, and anything else you may have on your device, so you can concentrate on a very important project for a period of time, without being constantly interrupted.

All these simple and free applications can really improve the results, allowing the employees to focus on what really matters, and to accomplish more in a day's work than ever before.
