Introduction to Cloud Based tools for the Small Business Owner

May 8, 2012 by

In this introduction to Cloud based tools for the Small Business owner, Helen Stothard, owner of HLS Business Solutions, and author of the A to Z of Small Business Tools, will introduce you to the time saving integration offered by cloud based tools including:

  • Capsule CRM – a cloud based CRM system that will help you not only keep track of your contacts but also manage your customer relationships, pipeline and more and assist you in generating new business from existing contacts
  • Xero – a cloud based bookkeeping system that will show you exactly where your business stands financially, and allow you to stay on top of your invoicing, debtors and creditors wherever you are
  • MailChimp – an email newsletter system that allows you to communicate with your contacts, it’s so much more than a newsletter system and can help generate new business
  • Google Apps – a cloud based system that allows you to access your email, spreadsheets, presentations and documents wherever you are, and allows multiple users to edit the same document at the same time

By the end of this training session you will have learned how these systems integrate with each other; on their own they will save you time and money, but by learning what these systems are capable of, especially when integrated with each other, they will help you generate new business.

As a small business owner it’s important that you control your costs, but it’s also important that you can access information quickly and easily. This will help you generate more business, especially from the contacts you already have.

The event is being held on Friday 22nd June, 2012 at Askham Bryan College on the outskirts of York, commencing at 9.30 am and finishing at 2.00 pm.

The day will start with a continental breakfast, there will be a mid morning break with tea, coffee and biscuits and mid day there will be a buffet style lunch.
