With more consumers and businesses using wireless applications for business and personal use, the Small Business Committee of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce will host “Mobile Apps—Past, Present and Future.” This program, part of the Top Tools for Business series, will take place Friday, Aug. 24, at noon at the Chamber offices.
Presented by AT&T, “Mobile Apps” program will highlight trends in mobile applications for businesses, discuss some popular apps and show how businesses can apply those apps to reach their business goals.
According to the Chamber, studies show that “small businesses that use mobile apps to help manage their operations are saving more than 370 million of their own hours and over 725 million employee hours annually.” The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council reports that “31 percent of small firms with 20 or fewer employees were using mobile apps. “
