The best online software for your business 2016



The best online software for your business 2016

When running a business it can often be tough to keep track of everything. With this cloud based software you can operate efficiently, whether you’re at work, home, or on the road. Here is the must have software for 2016.





Dropbox is our favourite cloud-based file storage service that allows you to sync files to any of your devices. It also acts as a back-up service, keeping your all-important documents safe and making sure you never lose a document again! Dropbox can even be used for bigger businesses, allowing staff to swap and share documents in real-time.

Xero is a cloud-based software that takes care of all your accounting, reconciliation and invoicing needs. As well as giving its users the traditional accounting functionality, Xero also provides its users with a variety of add-on tools, including CRM, payroll management, inventory and ecommerce. Xero is also mobile-friendly, allowing you to use it on the go.

bookitlive  is a cloud-based software that takes care of all your booking & payment requirements.  With Bookitlive, you can easily take bookings and payments online through your website and Facebook page. Bookitlive makes it easy to make, move and manage bookings and manage client details. bookitlive helps reduce no-shows, as users are able to send their clients SMS notification and take payments at the time of booking. bookitlive is a also a great marketing tool, as you can offer your customers discounts, vouchers and promotions.

Evernote is a handy notebook tool. With Evernote, you can sync notebooks to all your devices. It’s great for noting down ideas or to-do lists whilst on the move. Evernote can also be used for managing your expenses, such as your receipts and invoices, and also for travelling as you can save your reservations, tickets and itineraries without worry.

Fund raising event at an Indoor Tarampoline Centre, how to on sell tickets

A great fund raising idea is to book out a whole day at an Indoor Trampoline Center (discounted rates are available for booking the whole centre) You then sell your own tickets to the event and raise money from the difference in price.

The only draw back is managing the ticket sales as this is very time consuming if you have to do it manually by collecting cash.

Recently a primary school booked out the Bounce Indoor Trampoline Centre who have there own online booking software but this would not work for selling their ticket to the event.

They solved the problem by engaging bookitlive to sell the tickets for them. As bookitlive is a leading supplier of online booking and payment software for Indoor Trampoline Centres they were able to have a booking and payment page setup in under an hour.
