You may already be using Whatsapp on a personal level, but it also has a lot to offer business users.

Whatsapp allows texts, calls and the sharing of files over wifi or over the mobile network. It’s a cost-effective way of making and taking calls, especially if you’re overseas.

Skype for Business

Widely used for video conferencing and commercial people all over the world. Skype for Business reduces the need for you to travel and enables you to share your screen and record your meetings.

One Drive and Google Drive

If you are using Microsoft 365 or G Suite you may not realise that you also get a lot of cloud-based storage included in your subscription, making it a cost-effective and accessible option for you to view and share files while on the go.

Paypal Here

Visa, Mastercard and Maestro debit and credit cards are all accepted by Paypal.

Use Paypal to get paid, track cash and cheque payments and issue invoices simply and securely on your mobile.

With no contract, no monthly fees or hidden costs, get paid any time and anywhere.

Office Lens

Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable.
