Your daily working needs

The needs at the core of your business

What is on your to-do list? You have objectives to achieve, an action plan to carry out. What are the main points?

  • solicitation: you know it's true, you need customers to breathe life into your company. It's paramount to find some.
  • loyalty: once you've found a customer, you need to keep them. This is an indespensible condition for development. One-off sales are short-termist and weak in sustaining your activity.
  • communication:
    • first of all operational: you need to be equipped with a professional email account,
    • then promotional: in order to develop your customer relationship, communicate more broadly about your news, your image... Gain visibility and legitimacy, both in the eyes of potential and current customers, and potential partners.
  • billing and receipts: you have clients, sure, but are they paying you as planned? You have to track payments, follow up if necessary - this is the very minimum for your accounts.

The four points above are directly relevant to the core of your activity. In the next paragraphs we also look at actions that are more indirect but just as important.

Indirect needs

There are risks associated with the environment in which your company is evolving. Even with a small structure, the impact of these risks is just as strong.

  • backing up your data: a sudden loss of information - like a client file, dataset or accounting - would be dire. Energy and time wasted is one result, but your image would also take a hit, affecting your credibility with customers and partners.
  • data protection: hacking doesn't just happen to other people. There are many types of malwares. What can you do if a hacker corrupts your system or demands a colossal ransom from you? Better to be protected beforehand.

Management tools to deal with these challenges

With this check-up in mind, let's look at the SaaS type of management solutions likely to help the daily running of you business.

Zimbra for your email account

Getting a professional email account is an obvious move, of course. But which email server to choose? There are many available at different prices. Zimbra is one of the most sought after by companies, organizations and associations alike. It is open source, customized by Ovea and hosted in France. Its availability and the quality of its linked services make it stand out. Syncing across all devices, it allows you to work on the move: you can access your email account, list of contacts, calendar and even your work documents. Beyond its messaging service, Zimbra is a collaboration software series for increased efficiency, productivity and responsiveness.

TigerPro for canvassing, retaining customers and even billing

CRM is your prospecting, commercial loyalty and customer relationship management tool. It can also extend to your commercial administration management like an online commercial management software. TigerPro is a software in which you can:

  • formulate your differentiated pricing frameworks
  • send quotes to your prospective customers like you would with a quoting software,
  • automatically turn these quotes into bills,
  • track payments and set reminders for healthy cash flow.

With these workflows integrated into a single tool, TigerPro expands the notion of CRM and offers the start of an ERP (Enterprise Ressource Planning) solution, valuable for the creation of businesses and small, developing structures (a dedicated ERP could cover different needs and processes like purchase and stock management, for example). For a deeper accounts management (general accounting, accounts data entry, tax reports...), we suggest that you use a dedicated online accounting software, such as the EBP Compta sotware, for example.

Send up to communicate

Now you need to think about how to communicate. With a CRM software (Customer Relationship Management) such as Send up, for example. This multichannel communication solution allows you to carry out marketing campaigns:

  • by email: via an intuitive drag & drop interface, responsive templates, scenarios and landing pages are suggested to you. Once the campaign has been sent, a report detailing the analytics on the sales revenue in particular, and the control panels, allows you to evaluate the impact in real time and pilot actions for the optimization of the campaigns,
  • by SMS: you can send SMS push to your customers or prospective customers with a specific message,
  • by fax: still used in "old school" sectors! Your campaign is exported in pdf and then sent.

Send up also offers to conduct market and satisfaction surveys via forms and polls.

Oxibox to safeguard your data

Data is precious to all businesses (VSBs, SMEs, large businesses): the database, the contact list, but also the logs of exchanges and work carried out. The issue of safeguarding this information should not be neglected. It would be reckless to allow the risk of a server crash which would make you lose everything. What would be better - a local backup or Cloud backup? For more security, the Oxibox solution offers you both, with the guarantee of simple recovery and support. The data is hosted in France, and ensured for up to eight million euros... now that's reassuring!

Bitdefender to protect your data

Backup is one thing, protection is another. You use professional devices: computers, tablets, smartphones; specific apps: email, portals, software... All of these entries into your computing system need to be protected from malicious attacks. This is what BitDefender offers with its Cloud administration console to configure and roll out a complete cybersecurity system, protecting you both on the Cloud and locally.

Any business, no matter how small, has immovable needs. These are linked to the specific business of course, but also to associated risks. Various management packages exist and they are intended to be both accessible and adapted. It's up to you to narrow down what you're looking for to simplify and manage daily activities.
