The era of the all powerful small business
It’s never been a better time to be a small business.
Small businesses today can access systems and tools that were once traditionally reserved for much larger companies. This makes small companies much more powerful, and much more likely to succeed.
Over the past decade, improving internet connectivity has led to the phenomenon of cloud computing and software that runs virtually on someone else’s computer somewhere out on the internet. It’s called SaaS – Software-as-a-Service.
Software that was once a complex and expensive thing you bought, installed, and maintained on a computer, is now an affordable service anyone can subscribe to for a few bucks a month.
In a way, SaaS cloud tools are like Robin Hood for small business. They’ve leveled the playing field by taking the competitive advantage that was once reserved for large corporations, and making it affordable for every sized company.
Spoke Phone has taken SaaS a step further. We’ve not only moved the software to the cloud, but the physical things too. There are no more phone lines, desk phones, hardware, phone system switchboards, etc.
Now is the era of simplicity.
Your employees actually use the tools you buy for them!
The next generation of SaaS software like Tradify and Spoke Phone are leading the way in taking complex things and making them simple, so that anyone in your business can and will use it.
Spoke Phone for instance, has taken the business phone systems that traditionally requires comprehensive setup and user training, and simplified it all into a simple mobile app that requires no user training at all.
And it’s not just about simplifying features and making it easy for employees, it’s got to be beautifully designed too.
