Car Pooling – Avego
Have you ever thought about carpooling to work? If so, consider the Avego app. Why should you have to drive to work alone every day? Using the Avego app allows private cars, or drivers like you, to share their empty seats with other people who work along the same route that you use every day to go to work. This app also allows drivers and users to view the number of empty seats that are
available. The cost is split between the drivers and the riders saving everyone money.
Saving Fuel Costs – Fuel Saver
Another way to save money for your business is through the Fuel Saver app. This app is great for employees using company cars and for your own personal car. The phone senses when the driver is accelerating or braking too harshly and when they are speeding. Instead of having to look at the phone while driving to know that you, the driver, are doing these things, the phone gives a series of beeps to let you know what you are doing. This app will help you save money on gas and on your brakes.
Business Cards – GreenCard
How many business cards do you give out for your company? How much do they cost to get printed? Instead of wasting money on getting these business cards, get the GreenCard app. This app allows you to share your digital business card with clients and contacts without having to kill trees in the process, and if you update your information the app will automatically update to reflect that information for your contacts.
Energy Consumption – MeterRead
