Problem Statements

GET CUSTOMERS

Help small businesses with a tool that can create new leads, reduce the time and money it takes to get new customers, send quotes & estimates and automatically add the new customers to QuickBooks. For e.g. CRM, email marketing etc.

GET PAID

Create a solution for digital payments, keep a track of their dues, send payment reminders, apply late fees and sync their payments transactions with Quickbooks, irrespective of the channel through which the customers pay.

GET CAPITAL

With Covid-19, there is an increased need for small businesses to raise capital to survive. They want a place where they can easily, securely apply and secure a loan at a competitive rate just using their Quickbooks data (vs. lengthy paperwork).

ACCESS ADVICE

Small businesses need the advice of an expert, whether it is in marketing, legal, or accounting. They are looking to find a trustworthy expert, book an appointment, remotely connect with them, exchange documents and finally pay for their advice.

BE COMPLIANT & ORGANIZED

Small businesses owners struggle to stay organized, so they fear tax surprises and fines. Apps that provide an updated/latest compliance calendar (e.g. when to pay GST), automating simple tax filings (e.g. filings in case of zero revenues) and compliance guidance.

GET WORK DONE

Provide solutions by creating tools which help small businesses service their customers efficiently & sync that data with QuickBooks. For e.g. project management, expense management, inventory etc.
