Business Growth

Launching, scaling, and growing your own business can be a rewarding experience. It can also be incredibly challenging and demanding. The good news is that you don’t have to do it all alone. There are a huge number of powerful apps that entrepreneurs can use to help them grow their business with greater confidence.


Here are 10 of our favourites:

  1. Insights Apps

Success isn’t just about growing. It’s about growing at the right time. And the only way to ensure you’re growing at the right time is to understand exactly where your business is, at every moment. Insights apps give you that insight, wherever you are.

Try: The Xero mobile accounting app for real time, on demand financial reporting. 

  1. Financial Apps

Growing your business is a full-time job. Fortunately, apps can help to simplify and streamline everyday tasks, such as finances and accounting. Keeping all your data in one place, these apps ensure you’ve got the data you need, when you need it.

Try: The Dext Prepare mobile app for financial document storage & submissions.

  1. Sales Apps

Growing your business means increasing your revenue. And increasing your revenue means making more sales. When it comes to growth, sales cannot be an afterthought. That’s why it can be beneficial to use apps that support sales efforts.

Try: The Unleashed mobile app which allows you to manage sales from anywhere.

  1. Automation Apps

Businesses looking to sell more often look to expand the number of channels they’re utilising, reaching more leads and maximizing their reach. Automation apps can be key to ensuring multi channel sales efforts are being handled in the best way.

Try: The A2X app which automatically connects online sales with financial systems.

  1. Task Management Apps

While growth isn’t always linear, it does require a consistent approach. This means that interruptions to operations can have a big impact on growth potential. Task management apps address this, making it possible to run business from anywhere.

Try: The WorkflowMax mobile app to keep business moving, wherever you are.

  1. Payment Apps

Growth is impossible without the necessary cash to fund it. So facilitating growth means making it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills and manage their subscriptions. There are a number of apps that are designed for this exact purpose.

Try: The GoCardless app which keeps track of customers, bills, and payments.

  1. Productivity Apps

Running a business while simultaneously growing a business can be hard work. Fortunately, productivity apps are designed to help complete tasks with greater efficiency and accuracy, generating processes for working smarter, not harder.

Try: The Microsoft 365 suite which is jam packed with a range of different apps.

  1. Networking Apps

Having the right people onboard – and seeking advice from organisations that have ‘been there, done that’ – is essential to successful growth. Networking apps help to forge valuable connections within the small business arena for knowledge sharing.

Try: The LinkedIn mobile app to connect with industry leaders and candidates.

  1. CRM Apps

Businesses will find it difficult – if not impossible – to grow if they are struggling to build a positive reputation within the industry. Customer relationship management (CRM) tools help businesses take a customer-centric approach, boosting buyer satisfaction.

Try: The HubSpot mobile app. There’s a free version that’s ideal for startups.

  1. Scheduling Apps

From meetings with potential investors to appointments with your accountant… Growing a business can be a busy time! Make it easier on yourself by using an app that shows you exactly what you’ve got planned for the day – or the week – ahead.

Try: The Calendly app which syncs with the brand’s web-based scheduling platform.

    I recently changed my Accounting to Direct Peak, mainly due to Karls brilliant support with advice regarding making Tax Digital and around my business growth intentions. Having run my own small business and being with my previous accountant for 13 years, I have been SUPER impressed with every aspect of the move - the advice, the support, and mostly the friendliness of the team and their willingness to want to help. Eve has been so amazing at supporting me to make the transition to Digital VAT returns - I cannot recommend Karl and his team at Direct Peak highly enough - Thanks Guys!
