So why not optimize these devices to help run your business? Below we have highlighted our top five mobile apps for business owners to get the most efficiency and effectiveness out of their smartphones.

For workforce communication and collaboration, you won’t find a better app than Slack. With Slack, everyone in your company can send instant messages to each other, and even organize channels for group or project-specific communication. You can also share a wide variety of files.
