Foldable mobile devices are going mainstream in business as Samsung continues to introduce new and exciting features with each Galaxy Z series release. Galaxy Z Fold4 is the most advanced foldable yet, enabling mobile productivity like you never thought possible.
The 7.6-inch tablet display and multi-window experience on Galaxy Z Fold4 represent an opportunity for end users and developers alike. With the extra screen real estate, developers are customizing their apps for the foldable form factor and effectively making them more like desktop apps.
Here are some of the leading business software providers Samsung is partnering with to accelerate innovation and refine optimization on its foldable devices, like Galaxy Z Fold4:
1. Bigin by Zoho CRM
It’s a moment that nearly all salespeople can relate to. You leave a productive customer meeting with well outlined to-do’s, and by the time you get back to your home office, you can’t help but feel like you’re forgetting something. But with Bigin by Zoho CRM, you’ll be able to capture those action items while on the go. Historically, customer relationship management software has been heavily desktop-oriented — but Bigin by Zoho CRM is changing that.
The app is now optimized for many different screen sizes, including Z Fold4’s tablet mode display, where you can quickly view and update everything you need to know in terms of where any given customer stands in your sales cycle. Bigin by Zoho CRM supports Z Fold4’s Multi-Active Windows, allowing you to split your screen to show different aspects of the app. For example, you can stay on top of all your activities, get notified of upcoming events, and access one single view of all your customer data without toggling back and forth, even while on the go.
“Ever since our launch in 2020, our focus has been to deliver a simple, mobile-first, pipeline-centric CRM experience for small and micro businesses by bridging the gap between spreadsheets and full-scale CRM solutions,” says Subash Subbiah, Head of Product Management, Mobile CX Platform, Zoho. “Our partnership with Samsung has allowed us to deliver seamless customer information and collaboration on-the-go with features such as Flex Mode for hands-free multitasking, a rich note taking experience with S Pen and extending work to larger devices using DeX mode. As businesses look to maximize revenue and retain customers in an uncertain economy, we are committed to offering an intuitive CRM experience for desktop, mobile and now foldables — to achieve measurable business success and offer memorable customer experiences.”

Anyone with sales experience knows to act fast when a prospect is ready to sign a contract. That means you need the ability to send, sign and manage important agreements to close new business from almost anywhere, any time. DocuSign has become ubiquitous in business as a streamlined, digital agreement tool, and its DocuSign eSignature mobile app works beautifully on Galaxy Z Fold4.
Here’s how it works: If you see an email attachment that requires your signature, you can download and/or open the attachment and split your screen in tablet mode between email and the DocuSign eSignature app. Drag and drop the attachment into eSignature and swipe the email window outward to close it so that DocuSign is in full screen. Now, fold the device into Flex Mode and set it horizontally on a flat surface. Just like that, you have your contract in the top half of the screen and the signature field at the bottom, ready for you to sign with your finger or optional S Pen. The deal is sealed.

Invoicing and accounting software provider FreshBooks is also optimized for Multi-Active Windows. In split screen, you can reference client project details alongside your accounting dashboards and create invoices in minutes. Use the split screen to compare side-by-side data within the FreshBooks platform, or refer to information in another app like email or Microsoft Excel. “Since most of our small business owners work on their mobile devices, it made complete sense to partner with Samsung to allow them to access the FreshBooks Android app on the Samsung mobile platform,” added George Kyriakis, Senior Director, Business Development for FreshBooks.
The larger screen naturally gives you room to fill out invoice fields with ease. If you’ve previously been tied to a desktop to send invoices, the mobile invoicing capabilities of FreshBooks on Z Fold4 not only improve your personal productivity but also keep cash flow for your business moving faster and more efficiently.

4. Microsoft Teams
Hands-free videoconferencing is one of the most useful on-the-go productivity features on Galaxy Z Fold4, thanks to Flex Mode. Even while traveling, you can sign into Microsoft Teams meetings and turn on your camera. With Galaxy Z Fold4 flexed and sitting on your desk, you’ll always present yourself in the best and most professional light.
The additional screen real estate on Galaxy Z Fold4 makes Microsoft Teams feel and function like the desktop app. While you’re chatting, you can see all your conversations on the left and the selected conversation on the right, making it easier to keep multiple chats going throughout your workday.

During videoconferences, you can see more participants all at once by using Teams in full screen. Need to multitask? That’s where Flex Mode comes in extra handy (or more like hands-free). Let your Teams meeting occupy half of the screen while you use the other half to check emails, reference documents or take notes with the S Pen. Galaxy Z Fold4 is also the best mobile device for live screen sharing and whiteboarding on Teams.
5. Microsoft Office
Microsoft Office has been built into Samsung’s flagship smartphones for the past few generations. The native integration is more powerful than ever on Galaxy Z Fold4, where Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint are deeply optimized for the foldable display.
No more condensed hamburger menus; the top ribbon menus you’ve become accustomed to on your PC are now right there on your mobile device, too. Viewing the File, Home, Format, Insert and Formula menus on your mobile device makes it much easier to edit documents and slideshows — or even create them from scratch. As you add comments to a document, you’ll see your comments alongside the original text.
Microsoft has enabled drag and drop for when you have Office open side-by-side with other apps. You can drag photos from Gallery directly to PowerPoint, or pull a paragraph from your Outlook inbox directly into a Word document.
Galaxy Z Fold4 makes mobile productivity easy because of the hard work that has been done by Samsung and its partners. These are just a few of the optimized Galaxy Z Fold4 apps that will change the way you do business. Once you have your Galaxy Z Fold4 in hand, you’ll discover new productivity hacks every day. Plus, take advantage of special discounts and perks from participating business app partners.
