New software brings CRM, accounting, HR and more into one application for SMEs
A new cloud based business application gives SMEs a raft of organisational systems in one easy-to-use package.
SMEstack provides tools to manage, promote, and grow businesses, offering a cost-effective solution for small and medium sized enterprises which want to centralise their operations.
Included in SMEstack are features including CRM, accounting, HR, tasks, social, and reports, all of which work together to keep the core mechanics of your business in one place.
The CRM tool allows you to manage all business interactions with customers, clients and sales prospects from the first identification of a potential customer through to the billing for a sale, while the accounting software provides users with accurate record keeping of transactions purchases, expenses and outstanding bills.
The HR function covers almost all HR tasks, recording and updating payrolls and vacations, and linking with other features such as CRM to monitor employees’ sales progress, for example.
The Tasks feature helps keep your work organised and manageable; allowing you to set up tasks and reminders, as well as automatically sending emails after an action is started or completed.
Social media has become increasingly important in business, and the Social tool enables companies to broadcast content to all social channels, as well as measuring and analysing the impact of that content via a social dashboard.
Finally, the Reports function provides anaylsis and reports that enable business intelligence, allowing you to measure, share and collaborate on the data and metrics that matter to you and your team.
With the benefit of centralising operations, SMEstack has the potential to let you focus on your business rather than maintaining various different programmes and technologies. By synchronising all the features, your company’s interactions with clients, customers, as well as employees is manageable from one place. And being a cloud application, you can access it while on the road.
The developers claim SMEstack can bring benefits such as saving money and time, a leaner workforce, better teamwork, and improved ROI, all of which can lead to an increase in profit.
For start-up businesses and SMEs, this new product could be the ideal way to keep operations streamlined and easily managed.
