Work smarter in 2020 with these business apps

In a mobile-first world, the right business apps, can help you in the office or on the go, keeping you connected and making better use of your time. That’s why we’ve pulled together a selection of handy apps to help you work smarter, faster and more effectively, with benefits you can see immediately.


Get productive with Office 365

Our team are never just based in the office in front of their PC. One day they can be visiting a customer and the next they can be attending exhibitions & networking events, so their office needs to be wherever they are with access to all their emails & documents.

Office 365 enables our team to work wherever they are. Whether they are based in the office or visiting our customers, Microsoft Office 365 is cloud-based which means that all of our team’s emails, documents, contacts and shared calendars are always with them. And always up-to-date. Our team find it really easy to use and manage, even with no IT expertise.


Motivate yourself with Spotify

There’s nothing better than a bit of motivation music at the start of a busy day or being able to zone out and lose yourself in music on the commute home.  Spotify is a definite favourite in our office and we love the algorithms that allow the app to generate playlists of new music related to what you already love.


Manage your tech with MaaS360

Flexibility often goes hand in hand with network security lapses, not to mention the problems caused by lost or stolen devices but thanks to MaaS360 we don’t need to worry. MaaS360 is a simple and comprehensive way of managing all the mobiles and tablets on our network and also ensures that they are all secure & protected. Wherever they are. Whoever they belong to. Basically it prevents the bad things from getting in and the good things from getting out of our corporate network.


Unwind with Headspace

We recognise the benefits of meditation when you lead a busy lifestyle. Headspace guides users through short meditation sequences and really helps some of our team unwind. Headspace can help clear your mind at the end of the day, so that you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to conquer tomorrow!


Stay protected with McAfee

Did you know that 90% of small businesses have had some kind of security breach? That’s why we have McAfee installed on all our company devices. McAfee Multi Access is an online security app that can protect all your devices at once, against viruses, spam, malware and identity theft. It combines a powerful suite of protective services from the world’s largest security company to protect our phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers, both Macs and PCs.


Keep connected with O2 Just Call Me

Sometimes our team need to be able to call in and be in on some of our conference calls so we use Just Call Me which gives them access to hassle free conference calling on the move by just using their mobile number. We can just download the app and set the time and date of the call &our participants just dial our mobile number. O2 Just Call Me is simply charged at the standard rate to an O2 mobile. And calls are made over the network, so unlike calls using a data connection or Wifi, O2 Just Call Me calls are the same great quality as speaking on your mobile.


Get collaborating with BOX

When our team are out on the road, they need to be able to share & edit documents with us but also with their customers. That’s why we love Box.

Box is a powerful online storage and collaboration tool that allows businesses of all sizes to securely share and store content online.
