Timesheets and Expenses – Contracting PLUS App

All you need to do is take a picture with your phone of your timesheets or expenses, and upload it at any time, from any location.
Managing your profile and Networking – LinkedIn
No app list would be complete without mentioning LinkedIn! Its primary objective is to open doors of opportunities! LinkedIn is one outstanding and very efficient networking tool, if you use it right! In case you have already set up your LinkedIn account, but allowed it to sit idle, now’s the time for you to log in and study how you may acquire the maximum benefits from it. Check out the Irish Contractors Group also for further networking opportunities.
Stay Focused – Freedom App
Freedom is a powerful tool to eliminate distractions, enabling you to focus on getting your work done, or take a much-needed time out from your tech. It turns off websites, apps or Internet access based on the parameters you select. You can activate blocking on the fly, or schedule it ahead of time to help you stay on task during work hours.
Keep yourself organised – Trello
The best app to get yourself organised as a contractor on the go. Trello gives you sections like To Do, Doing and Done and these tasks move through your workflow. This is one of the best aps to keep your tasks and projects on track for you and your clients.
Stay in Touch – Slack
Slack is a brilliant way to stay in touch or communicate with past, current or future clients and other contractors. You can setup channels for current projects, or use it to work collaboratively with other contractors. You can share files and send, receive direct messages, as well as “@” other users so they’re notified you’ve mentioned them. Customizable filters and the ability to search conversations makes it a great tool right at your fingertips.
Store and Share Files – Dropbox
Dropbox is a home for all of your work. It is a cloud storage service where you can store and share files, collaborate on projects and bring your best ideas to life – whether you’re working as an independent contractor or as part of a team with your clients. Dropbox is not only easy to use, but you may be able to get all you need from its free version.
