Even with the best team in the world, a startup is a massively busy place to work. Your product is never finished (no, seriously), and, if you’re doing it right, there’s always an exciting opportunity on the horizon. You need to superpower yourself and your team with the very best tools you can afford.
At Appointedd we rely on a bunch of tools that make our day-to-day business flow freely…
Appointedd – Using our own tool, our customers and partners can book a call or meeting with us whenever they need to. We set our own rules so people can only book when we want them to and it syncs with our normal calendar. It has massively streamlined the way we book calls and meetings across time zones too.
Trello – We use Trello for project management and organisational structure. We track all our projects on boards and we’re even building our company handbook on there.
Slack – Billy, our Lead Developer, is based out of the office. Slack lets us chat freely with him and collaborate easily. We also integrate our billings, payments, alerts and Trello boards with Slack – it’s the beating heart of our business.
Hubspot – Content marketing is at the heart of our growth strategy so Hubspot powers our marketing team. We run our website, social media and sales funnel all on Hubspot.
FreeAgent – Our accounting is streamlined via FreeAgent. We can invoice on it and report direct to HMRC, and it has the best support team ever!
I truly believe that SaaS (software-as-a-service) is fuelling an industrial revolution. Never before has the playing field been so even – SaaS is the sling with which David will slay Goliath. Where cutting edge software was once the domain of large corporates and enterprises, any company can now get their hands on world class tools – for free or a low monthly fee. So hook your team up with the best software for your needs; it’ll definitely pay dividends.
