9 Best Apps for Keeping Track of Business Contacts

When on the go, it’s necessary to be able to quickly and efficiently organize contact information.

Question: What's the best app you have used to keep track of important business contacts on the go/mobile?

Google Contacts

"Google Contacts is an address book that’s built into Gmail. I love it because it's so much more than just that. You can add just about any possible contact info to your contacts and Google will automatically update contacts with their Google+ information. There is also an ability to save notes on each contact, plus you can see all correspondence with that person too."


Whatsapp

"Whatsapp uses the phone's contacts to allow you to connect with individuals. Once their contact information is saved in your phone, you can send photos, voice memos, create group chats and of course talk via text. All of the person's contact information can be included and you can then reach them regardless of where they are in the world -- all you need is wifi or a 3G connection."


GetBase CRM

"GetBase is a fantastic CRM and contact tool. When customers call in, it will tell me who it is without even having them saved in my phone as a contact. All emails between contacts sync to their record automatically, making taking voice and text notes, creating tasks and calendar items and updating deals a breeze. "


RelateIQ

"RelateIQ is a great customer relationship management (CRM) tool that was recently acquired by Salesforce. It's super simple -- basically an online spreadsheet that connects to your email and lets you create and tag lists of different kinds of contacts. Best of all, they have a great mobile app that you can use to access all your important business contacts' information on the go."


Pipedrive

"Being in the services business, keeping track of business contacts and being the loop always active is imperative for its smooth functioning. Pipedrive CRM helps you track just that with incredible simplicity, making the entire process highly efficient. It integrates with your calendar to keep you up to date on events and meetings, as well as follow-ups."


Streak

"Streak is a browser extension for Gmail, but they've also got an iOS app that integrates email with a customer's pipeline. It's great for keeping business contacts in the same frame of reference as a deal flow. All data is immediately synced with other members of the same pipeline, so everyone stays in the loop as correspondence evolves with that contact regardless of which device is being used."


Humin

"In my opinion, Huminis the app that everyone can use. Whether you're looking to stay in touch with clients back at home or adding new contacts while on the go, Humin remembers your relationships just like you do by categorizing your contacts by location, common connections and how you know each other. This provides a deep level of context for every contact in your phone."


Salesforce1

"As one of the most powerful CRM platforms, Salesforce is great to have with me wherever I go. Thankfully the company has a fantastic mobile app for iOS called Salesforce1. With the app you can easily access your contacts and accounts as well as active deals, opportunity history and outstanding tasks. They even give you access to your Salesforce dashboards on the go so you're always in the know."


LinkedIn

"As an international business person, I travel a lot between the United States, Africa, Europe and Asia. As a result it's imperative that I have a universal solution to managing business contacts on the go. By far the most effective mobile app to keep track of my contacts is LinkedIn. Unlike business cards that provide minimal information about a contact, LinkedIn provides details beyond basic contact info."
