Executive assistants face a variety of tasks and responsibilities every day, so they must always be organized, focused, and punctual. Luckily, there are many helpful mobile apps on the market to make the job easier. Here are four must-have apps for executive assistants.
Cloud storage is a relatively recent technology that has made file storage and sharing much more streamlined and convenient. Dropbox is an essential storage platform that allows users to store, access, and share a variety of file formats from any mobile device or computer. Perfect for on-the-go executive assistants, Dropbox makes files accessible from the office, an airport terminal, the car, and beyond.
Like Dropbox, Evernote uses cloud storage to keep important files close at hand, but this app emphasizes text documents. A journal of sorts, Evernote is a great platform on which to store, compose, edit, and share meeting notes, emails, to-do lists, and even audio recordings. It also allows users to organize documents with tags.
An essential part of an executive assistant’s job is keeping track of the boss’s daily travel itinerary. Tripit keeps all travel information—from limousine and car service schedules to flight times and more—in one easily organized app. Try Tripit and never show up late to a meeting or miss a plane again.
FullContact Card Reader
The days of keeping a stack of contacts’ business cards are over. Simply snap a picture of a business card with FullContact Card Reader, and the app will transcribe and save the card’s contact information automatically. It’s perfect for keeping track of clients and for transferring their contact information to other apps and devices.
