What do you risk when you put all your money, efforts and time into your own business? Your cynical friends can say everything but U.S. Bureau of Labor shows rather positive statistics with 75% of startups that actually manage to survive during the very first year. However, only 4% of all businesses manage to stand out 10 years on the market against its tough competition.

So what do you need to withstand any atrocities on your way? I guess, at first, you need to make sure you obtain enough knowledge and stamina to foresee and tackle all the challenges. You can also employ professionals whose skills and experience can back-up your business plan.

Yet it’s not enough to get rid of the feeling you are missing some important data or forgot about another meeting with a potential partner. Not because you’re a careless novice in running your own business but because there’s too much pressure and information for one head to carry. Which is why you need mobile apps to manage various processes at the same time.

By the way, according to Endurance online survey 2015 Small Business Perspectives on Mobile with 909 of respondents involved, 71% of small businesses regard mobile apps as positive influencers on their business development. However, only 78% of them use mobile apps for their business.
