The future of business is digital. This might sound like something you would hear from someone in the 90’s, but digital is taking on a whole new meaning. The world of apps long relegated to games and memes on iTunes has moved into the world of business. The positive effects on your business from having an ideal app stack are boundless. Research from Xero shows small businesses using apps grow net profit 30% faster.
Hang on, what is an app stack?
App stack is the name given to the family of apps you have working for your business. In the digital ecosystem it’s important to eliminate clutter. You need to make sure your app stack is set up to work efficiently for your business. When you have the ideal stack you are going to see administrative work eliminated, time saved and a foundation for success built.
