Working outside the office rather than being tied down to a desk is becoming an accepted practice, but many business owners don't realize there are a bevy of tools available to make that practice more streamlined and effective.

Jaci Russo, who joined "Nathan & Bernie in the Morning," said apps like Skype and FaceTime allow business to meet with their far-flung clients without ever having to leave the office or their home.

Staff can also always be aware of what's going on with a project through project management apps like  Teamwork, Basecamp, or Trello.

And sharing files is a breeze, Russo said, with Dropbox or Google Drive.
