In the last decade, cell phones have come a long way. Gone are the days where phones are simply used for making calls. Smartphones today are used for everything from paying bills, to running marketing campaigns, to taking photos and videos, to running entire businesses.

With the rise of smartphones has come to the growth of mobile applications. In fact, mobile app technology has become so advanced that some entrepreneurs and business owners have dropped their laptops and desktop computers in favor of working from their smartphones. In a world where millions of mobile apps currently exist, it’s possible for tech-savvy individuals to conduct many business tasks from their phones.

We are proud to announce that our new mobile application, named ASC Mobile, is now live in the App Store and Google Play. ASC Mobile allows business owners to manage their answering service account from their smartphone, and to do the following tasks:

How can the ASC Mobile app add value to your business?

The recent explosion of mobile applications has made it easier to manage many business operations right from a smartphone, which is great news for today’s entrepreneurs and business owners. These individuals are always looking for ways to simplify their lives, which may explain why mobile digital app use grew by roughly 50% from 2016 to 2018, with more than 75% of that growth “directly attributable” to the mobile app.

Here are some of the reasons to consider using the ASC Mobile app to manage your answering service account:

  • You can access your answering service account on-the-go using a device that you probably already have in your pocket or handbag – your smartphone. Whether you’re meeting with clients, traveling to a conference, or spending quality time with your family, you can stay up-to-date with your account simply by checking your phone.
  • Less equipment= less headache. Gone are the days where a computer, copier, fax machine, printer, office phone, calculator and cell phone are necessary. Many business tasks can now be done just by using the tools in your smartphone.
  • You’re probably already using mobile applications. Mobile has grown so rapidly that it’s now the leading digital platform, with total activity on smartphones and tablet devices accounting for 62% of digital media time spent. Apps alone account for the majority of digital media time, meaning that you are already most likely using them and familiar with how they work.
