Running a start-up when on the go

by Startacus Admin

More people than ever are starting up their own businesses. With thousands of people applying for one job or two job vacancies, creating a business of your own has never been more tempting and, if you do it right, you can reap real rewards for your efforts.

Of course, for many, a start-up has to be run whilst working another full or part time job. This alone can cause some people to halt their plans before running a startupthey even start, but this needn’t be the case. The best way to keep running your business on the go is to take advantage of smart and mobile devices that allow you to take your business with you wherever you go.

A new start up, had one of their spokespersons point out to us that the right equipment had been vital in allowing all of its employees to stay connected when out of the office as well as to ensure that all ordering and stock issues where coordinated appropriately.

Buy the right devices

If you’re going to create your own start-up, you need to invest in more than just the company’s products. Spending a little time and a little money on new devices can help to make running the business easier than ever.

A tablet is absolutely essential and there’s no need to spend hundreds for everything you’ll need. Many stores such as Tesco and Argos now produce their own low-priced tablets that allow you to effectively run the business away from your desk.

Make your desktop mobile

Many people are under the misconception that it’s not possible to produce and manage vital documents on a mobile device. Thankfully, this is not the case as the prominence of smart devices has forced companies such as Microsoft to create mobile versions of their desktop programmes.

Microsoft Office is available for mobile and smart devices now and there’s no better way to produce these documents for everyone to access than by buying this software. Likewise, take advantage of Google’s documents and cloud drive to update documents on the go.

Download the relevant apps

No matter what your start-up type, there’s an app out there to help you and chances are that there are plenty of free versions. It’s time to delete Flappy Bird and make space for something much more useful.

Many start-ups now take advantage of marketplaces on sites such as eBay, ASOS, Amazon and Etsy, so it’s absolutely vital that you download their relevant apps to ensure you have the best optimised experience while you’re out of the office.
