Is it just me, or are there hundreds of new apps on the market every day? Do you ever think that as a small business owner, you’d like to have an app for your company?
It is a breakthrough that more and more, high-tech apps are becoming less and less expensive. The tools are becoming more readily available and there are a growing number of developers with the knowledge to write apps.
I found this great blog post by Gene Marks on apps for 2012 that will change the way business as usual is conducted: “Over the next couple of years, many smart business owners will also be creating their own apps for their own businesses. These apps will enable a customer to check pricing for the products they buy. Or look up the status of an order. Or open up a trouble ticket. Or request a quote. Or pay their open invoice (except for my customers, who do everything in their power NOT to pay their invoices).”
