There are dozens, if not hundreds or thousands, of platforms and apps on the market that are designed for your use as a business. They do everything from consolidate communication with your remote team, to allow you to create estimates and invoices, to adding digital signatures to documents. But how many apps and programs do you really want to manage – especially when most of them don’t talk to each other?
GetBusy, a new offshoot startup of well-established Australian company Reckon, has what they think is the solution: one platform for everything a business needs. Recently listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM Market for small but growing companies, GetBusy’s team built their new product in secret. Their recently announced document management platform is so much more – it allows all interaction between a client and a service provider to take place over one platform. It even automatically prompts the user to complete certain actions at the relevant times, and will also give the option of postponing the task, while letting the customer know what is happening.
As an example – if you’re a plumber, you can use the app to schedule a time with the customer to go to their house to view the project. Afterwards, you may need to give your customer a quote. The app will automatically remind you, and then if you need to postpone the quote (say, if you’re checking the cost of materials), the app will let the customer know when they can expect to hear from you.
GetBusy doesn’t go into a lot of detail on their site about their app’s features, but that’s because most of them are pretty self-explanatory. Their new document management app does just that – manage documents – but also includes:
- Cloud Storage
- Keeping track of tasks that need to be accomplished
- Digital signatures capability
- Quotes and estimates
- Online 0ffice
- Customer communication
Get Busy’s Pre-Beta Signup is now officially open for early signups! Bonus: if you sign up early, you can win some great swag (t-shirts, lifetime subscriptions, keep cups, fidget spinners, skateboards, etc). Personally? I’m about to dive head first into freelancing/running my own business, and I’ve already signed up for their beta. I’m looking forward to gettin’ busy.
