mail or fax, ensure that the organization is PCI-compliant, which also keeps customer payment information secure. Cut costs Technology means getting more done in less amount of time. Use technology to increase the number of products produced or to complete more processes. Technology keeps costs low while providing a quality product to the customer. Here are ten tools you can use to boost your business ratings and improve customer service all at the same time: 1. MobileDay - I use conference lines frequently when I'm working with people from all areas of the globe. These calls typically all have their own conference number and conference code. The MobileDay app works

with any conference call service by looking through your calendar, reminding you of the call, and with one click calling the conference line and dial any necessary codes for you. 2. Google Wallet - This app saves you the time of digging out your wallet and searching for the credit card you want to use. Instead, if your phone is enabled with near field communication, all you need to do once you've registered your cards is open the app, pick the card you want to use, tap the back of your phone to an NFC checkout register, and be on your way. All your information is securely stored on Google's servers, which you can remotely disable if you lose your phone. 3. WriteThat.Name - One of the biggest hassles I run into is when I need to quickly call someone who's not yet saved in my phone contacts. I then have to search through my emails to find the phone number. This is way too time consuming. Although not an app, WriteThat.Name improves mobile productivity by automatically scanning the signatures of people that email you, extracting their information, and merging it with your contacts in both your email and phone. If they haven't emailed you before, WriteThat.Name adds them as a contact or if they already exist, it updates their information for you. 4. Slice - The Slice mobile app keeps track of everything you buy online. When your inbox is flooded with numerous emails every day, it's hard to keep up with all your online purchase receipts. All you have to do is tell Slice the email addresses you use for these purchases and the app will keep track of all your orders for you. 5. Hipmunk - I do a lot of traveling. Hipmunk speeds up the process of planning those trips, whether my schedule is flexible or very precise. The site has data from nearly every airline and hotel. It's similar to Kayak but it's smarter. Hipmunk displays results in a visual timeline or map. You can see departure times or hotel locations with one quick glance. The simple visual makes the results seem more relevant to my needs, which saves me the time of sorting through options that won't work. 6. SignEasy - Who has the time to mess with using a scanner these days? With SignEasy, you no longer have to print and send documents that just need a signature. This app lets you sign documents using your phone, which

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
