It doesn’t matter if you’re the CEO of a big MNC or you’re running a small business, you’re always busy like a movie goer collecting the DVDs of the classics! You’re always on a run and life suddenly becomes too short for you. You don’t have time for sleep. You’re gaining weight because you don’t have time to go for a walk after eating and a party with your friends is like finding a diamond in an iron mine (it’s impossible actually!). But what do you get in return. In fact, the big MNC CEOs still get their dues. But for the small business owners, the situation’s just worse than ever. You don’t get the returns as per your time invested and that’s because you were inefficient. So you can hire a dog to dig out the base for your new house. But we know that a crane would do much better!
I’m talking about the latest web app called OliveBox (www.olivebox.net) that is a cloud based application aimed at helping you manage and increase your business sales. There are four basic departments that the app divides your business into: invoicing, marketing, booking and appointments.
As a businessman, a lot of your time is fed up into invoicing your clients for the payments or sending them important documents by email or sometimes even by post. Also, you need to keep an eye on pending invoices due to be paid after date. But now, OliveBox will take care of all that matter. All you have to do is just create a client list with all their info and you’re done. You can choose a ready-made template or you can customize it as per your requirements.
Online marketing is a tool that’s well-known and well-exploited as well. There are millions of business owners marketing on Facebook and when there are so many daily posts, it’s very easy to by-pass one and that can be you. That’s why OliveBox puts emphasis on email and mobile marketing. But apart from helping you create email lists and designing your emails, OliveBox also guides you on your strategy. I really liked their trust-building strategy and it’s something that I would also recommend being a customer. Separate list for separate products is another great strategy.
If you’re running a hotel suppose, then their booking module can easily replace your traditional pen & paper. The drag and drop interface is something that you’ll fall in love with. It’s easier to manage and of course, you’ll save a lot of paper. The last module is for your client appointments. It’s actually a time manager that helps you use your time efficiently without losing a single spare minute. It also warns you of no-show clients and prevents you from repeating the same mistake again.
The dashboard for all the four modules is very simplified and super-easy to use. Whether it’s sorting clients by their name for easy search or having a flow chart visual to see your bookings or creating different price lists for different seasons, you don’t need 6-month training before you can actually use them. You can start right now!
The app is available for free for the next two months. The paid plans are starting from just €9.99. So sign up right now and start availing the services.
Pros: intuitive UI; four different modules for invoicing, marketing, booking and appointments; well-designed layout; free for next 2 months.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
