As a small business owner, you are expected to be in multiple places at the same time or keep track of ten different things at the same time. What can you do when you’re outside the office but still need to check on what’s going on? Thankfully, various iOS apps have been developed to help busy webmasters and tech-savvy business owners stay in touch with office operations on the go. Here are a few iPhone apps to help you keep track of your mail:
Using FedEx Mobile is very easy. You just input the tracking number and you can get up-to-date information. A helpful feature of this app is the ability to personalize the view. You can nickname shipments, add notes or create a watch list for monitoring your most valuable shipments.
You can also view and manage shipments that were sent using FedEx Ship Manager through your iPhone or iPad. The app will also alert you to select delivery exceptions. This app is already directly linked to the website that is tailor-fit to work with your device for more convenience.
UPS Mobile is a simple tool that lets you track details for any shipment on your iPhone without logging in. This is applicable to package or freight shipments. You can assign shipment nicknames using your My UPS ID. You can also access your address book and payment information from the website by logging in.
By using your phone’s GPS, you can find the nearest UPS service location at your convenience. You can also request quotes on estimated shipment costs and delivery times or even select the right UPS service for your shipments.
