Having fun tracking your expenses?


Of course not.  Whether you’re a road warrior filing expense reports or just staying on top of your business or personal expenses, it’s a pain.  More painful when you forget and lose the reimbursement or tax write-off.  Money lost!

Our NextWave Mobile Apps solution?

Use the right device for the job.

Use your phone to capture and record mileage and receipts… it’s not built for efficient typing or data review.  Use your PC or tablet to enter expense details and run reports.

Make the apps work for you.

Minimize time spent on data entry from either device.  Customize each app to meet your individual needs.  Isn’t it fastest to select specific expense types, credit cards, or routine destinations from your personalized dropdown menu?

Keep control of your data.

Stay secure and save money—use apps that sync locally to transfer your records across your secure WiFi network—bypass the Cloud security issues and forget about ongoing fees.

As to the fun…

Well, you can change app color schemes.  Drive a tank or fly a UFO on your Easy Auto Log map.  All a bit lame but we haven’t gamified this routine bookkeeping process we all hate to do.  Yet.  Any ideas?  Send us a Tweet: @NextWaveScrum or @NextWaveMobile

 

See for yourself. Click the links below to download and try out all three apps for FREE.

Silicon Brains That Think as Fast as a Fly Can Smell

2014 Tech & Marketing Trends


We may be rogue app creators but there is always the people side of the business to consider… be it the team, client, end user, or potential end users.  Or dev partners.   😉

What is Rogue IT?

We find we’re already living some of these 2014 marketing predictions from the New York #tech community, posted by Jacob Ajwani.  It’s tougher every day to manage the complexity but therein lies the opportunity.

It’s reassuring to see our instincts seem to be right: create companion apps that make life EASIER as they operate natively independently and interdependently.
