5 gadgets to increase your efficiency
Most entrepreneurs already know that technology can be a tremendous help in their business. However, there are scores of gadgets and devices that are less well-known but can prove very useful. Here are some of them.

Saving on printing costs, iPads as cash till systems, social media for SMEs, the smartphone as a scanner, etc. In this blog we have already given numerous examples of how technology can help you in your day-to-day activities as an entrepreneur. This time, we are focusing on five less obvious apps and gadgets.


Many entrepreneurs’ wallets are bulging with all kinds of bank, credit, customer, loyalty and membership cards. But there is a better way.

For instance by using the Wocketwallet, a sort of digital wallet/safe in which you can store all the information on these cards without having to use a smartphone. It comes with a built-in card reader but you can also enter information manually. Protection is provided by PIN code and voice recognition


A tablet, a laptop, a smartphone… These days many entrepreneurs have more than one mobile device with them. The problem is that these appliances have to be charged regularly and they all have their own charger.

With the Solpro you can do away with this mass of cables. You can charge it using solar energy or plug it into a socket and its built-in 5,000-mAh battery then provides power for your device. Ninety minutes of sunlight is enough to fully charge your smartphone.

ZUtA Labs


When you’re travelling, do you regularly think ‘If only I had a printer with me’? Portable printers are available, but they are still fairly big and bulky. The ZUtA Labs printer takes a different approach.

You don’t put the sheet of page in the cassette. Instead, you simply place the printer on the sheet. It slides from left to right and prints out the text, whatever the paper format. You can connect it to your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi and with a full battery it can print for an hour. 

Echo Smartpen

The Echo Smartpen looks like an ordinary ballpoint pen, but make no mistake – this is a high-tech gem.

The pen captures all your notes digitally as you scribble them down and then you can save them on your computer, edit them, search through them and share them with colleagues. Using a built-in microphone, it can also record sound, so it’s a dictaphone or recording device, too. 


Snack bar operators, chefs and restaurant owners... this is one for you. The iCelsius Blue is a digital thermometer that you can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

It measures temperatures from -40° to 250° degrees Celsius (depending on which sensor you click into it), accurate to within one hundredth of a degree.
