Single Purpose Web Apps Are Dead!

That’s right. We don’t believe single purpose web applications have much of a future. It doesn’t make sense.

Why would a business owner use one application for billing, another application for CRM, another app for uploading documents and who knows how many other applications, just to run their business day-to-day?

Multiple web apps quickly lead to lost productivity and probably a migraine from having to remember all those password combinations! Oh and lets not even mention the cost of training staff on each system and all the licensing fees.

One of our good customers, Peggy Murrah (www.peggymurrah.com/), summed this up recently:

WORK[etc] has allowed me to consolidate 4 of the separate services I was using and tech support is phenomenal.
That’s what we are on about. One system to manage your small business. One interface to learn, one place for data entry, one place where you can run reports and keep on top of managing your business.

We believe that small business owners want to integrate a range of tools into the single, easy to use platform. That’s what we’ve built. And although our tools are incredibly simple to use, they are also incredibly powerful when used together.

So, if you’re sick of using numerous tools to run your business, or if you are still using Excel and Email to manage, it is time to sign up to WORK[etc] and start benefiting from efficiency of having just one system.
