Administrative Professionals Day: Free and Cheap Apps to Help Get the Job Done

Posted on 04/24/2013

Administrative Professionals Day is a great opportunity to say thanks to the person often credited with holding the office dynamic together. They track communication, maintain schedules and juggle a long list of often thankless tasks. But there are new tools that can help them do all of these things more quickly and affordably.

Often it falls on Administrative Professionals to organize travel plans for employees. The free TripIt app can help. Forward travel confirmation emails to [email protected] and they'll create an easy-to-read travel itinerary complete with customized maps, directions and notes.

Your office may already have discovered the joy of Dropbox. It's a free tool that allows you to store photos, documents and videos in one shareable location. The Dropbox app lets you access and share important items from a number of mobile devices including the Android, Blackberry or Kindle Fire.

World Clock
For Administrative Professionals who need to accurately schedule a conference call between the Tokyo office and the Dallas office, the free World Clock app can help. It will ensure no one is late to the meeting and everyone is in the right place at the right time.

Dragon Dictation
No need to actually type an email or text message as long as you have the Dragon Dictation app. It's free and allows users to speak their messages, instantly seeing them transformed into a text or email. It is a great time-saver for Administrative Professionals since it's up to five times faster than typing on the keyboard.

Secretary's Suite
This is known as the must-have app for receptionists because of its ability to save a caller's name, number and message details. Secretary's Suite is $3.99 and helps juggle a busy office phone line. Call information can then be shared or stored, making answering the phone an easier task.
