7 Biggest Small-Business Trends in 2013

7. Tablets will become must-have devices for small businesses.

Mobile technology in general, but specifically tablets, like the Apple (AAPL - Get Report) iPad mini and Google's (GOOG - Get Report) Nexus 7, will be a big priority for small businesses in 2013.

"While mobile technology and solutions have taken center stage in 2012, the prevalence of tablets in 2013 will alter how small businesses manage day-to-day tasks," according to Intuit.

According to a recent Intuit survey, about one in five entrepreneurs would like a tablet for their business.

"Leveraging tablet apps that can complete multiple tasks, such as accepting payments on the go, creating invoices and reconciling accounting books, will help small businesses save time and money in the new year," Wernikoff says.
