To help fill the knowledge gap, Telstra has launched the Smarter Tech Starter™, an interactive tool designed to help provide businesses with the right information about selected business apps, and show how they can benefit a businesses operations.

It’s designed to help businesses stay productive and foster collaboration with tech, trends and personalised recommendations. It’s a launching point to conversation, an insight into what’s happening in your industry and tangible ways to work a little Smarter.

Functioning as a digital consultant for business apps, it looks at your industry, workforce size, priorities and challenges, as well as some of the existing tech on the premises.

It analyses the information to provide app recommendations, industry insights and resources tailored to your business’ circumstances, along with content from Smarter Business Ideas that can benefit your business, embrace technology and do your thing more seamlessly than ever.

The right tools for the job

In an ever-evolving technological world, knowing what’s the right call for your business can be difficult. Google Play, Telstra App Marketplace and the App Store all have dedicated sections for business apps, housing thousands of different options that service different needs.

Choosing the right app should factor in a number of things beyond functionality. After all, a business app should create efficiencies in business processes, not disrupt them. Before committing, look at its integration with backend systems, speak to staff and consult experts to get an understanding about how it can be rolled out.

Find the right apps for your business on the Smarter Tech Starter™.
