These apps are streamlining workflows and making everyday tasks infinitely more productive. Discover the possibilities and reimagine how your business could work.


Apps that help you do more.

Extensions let you do more with apps on iPad and iPhone. Work in one app while tapping into another app’s functionality and content across iOS. View daily tasks on the lock screen, and share documents easily between apps. You can even create custom actions to extend your app’s capabilities.

The power of proximity.

The possibilities are limitless — from streamlining meeting room availability by automatically detecting when employees are present, to improving customer service by providing personalised messages to customers.

Meeting room efficiency.

Genentech built a custom app that lets employees check the availability of meeting rooms and book one instantly from their iPhone. iBeacon technology detects when people are present in a meeting room, so that employees are never left wondering which rooms are in use and which are vacant.
