Of the many tools to streamline SME workload – from website design, to security, cloud storage, and data collection – which are reliable and cost effective?
Keeping up with the latest technology for your small business can be confusing, especially when new platforms seem to arrive on the market almost every day. Identifying your most urgent business needs will help you work out which of the newest ‘must-have’ resources are worth your time.
Need a website? Squarespace gives you a free domain and allows you to access Getty Images. Meanwhile Mobirise is really simple to use too, creating mobile-first websites with a drag and drop functionality. For example, with the click of a button you can add a video to make your work engaging, too.
But don’t forget about platforms such as Tumblr. While the platform is geared up towards a younger audience, its functionality makes social sharing and re-blogging second nature, so your content can achieve a further reach. In addition, it can be complete customised to match your brand – perfect!
If you’re looking to add flair and a professional personality to your business, Studio lets you create beautiful logos, invitations and flyers.
Or, if you want to shut away distractions and get that document finished, Write! is a stylish new word processor app for Windows with a browser-style tabbed interface, basic formatting tools and auto-learning spellchecker. Signing up for a Pro account (free for a limited time) also gets you native cloud syncing and unlimited undo levels.
Looking for safer iCloud storage? New Zealand-based Mega says it puts security first. Anything you send to the cloud is encrypted and can only be opened by you via a ‘key’. The standard free package gives you 50GB of space, allows you to share files easily with other members, and send links securely to non-Mega users. New features due next year include video chat, voice calling and email. Just don’t forget your password.
Drowning in paper? Shoeboxed lets you scan and store receipts and business cards digitally; while the Tiny Scanner app converts documents to pdfs from your phone.
And if you’re in doubt, check out Product Hunt for an all-round resource. Users submit and vote on the latest technologies daily. A great tool for any time you need a quick tech refresh.
