BusinessWare Technologies has recently completed a significant upgrade to its AvailSuite line of field service software, with comprehensive tax reports, improved user interface, and QuickBooks synchronization.
The company also splitted the standard version of AvailSuite, with its lineup now comprised of Standard and Personal. Standard version is appropriate for companies with 5-50 employees because of its networking capabilities. It organizes customer information, manages products and/or services, schedules and dispatches staff, helps to keep expenses under control, handles invoicing, synchronizes data with QuickBooks, and much more. The Personal version is available for micro businesses or one-person companies. It has most features of the Standard version, but allows working with limited number of employees. Pricing for Standard is $299 for a single-user license; pricing for Personal is $69.99.
Standard and Personal version are built on the same code base, allowing for instant upgrading or quick migration between them. Growing businesses could stay with the same program and avoid data migrations and retraining of staff.
“Since small business solutions propose overly complex workflows, and unnecessary features, startups and home-based businesses often try to save time and money and use very simple software for managing their companies,” said Oleg Kokorin, CEO of BusinessWare Technologies, Inc. “But tiny business should strive to become a large one and look professional even taking the first steps.”
Main features in AvailSuite latest release:
• Customer management module automates day-to-day tasks from the first contact to after-sales service
• Scheduling multiple jobs and/or appointments and setting up the reminders
• Recurring Task Wizard assists with scheduling recurring appointments using very flexible recurrence pattern, like "every 3rd Friday each month", or "on Monday and Thursday every 2nd week"
• Receivables and payables control. Complete billing module automates invoice management and allows tracking payments and checking unpaid invoices
• Customizable invoices and orders to help companies have more professional image
• Inventory control to track and manage inventory
• Analytics and Reporting to gain insight into the key information needed to control a business.
Help & Support Options
A new software product requires some time for learning even how to start working with it. AvailSuite quick start wizard provides excellent assistance during the process of setting up company information, adding employees and customers, creating orders and invoices, entering payments, and running reports. A user can choose “Show me” tutorial movie or “Do it for me” option. The quick start wizard could be accessed at any time by clicking on “Quick Start” button in the main menu. This built-in assistance feature and traditional Help (press F1 button to access) are very useful. Free unlimited email support is provided for both Personal and Standard versions.
If a company outgrows AvailSuite Personal, moving up to the Standard version requires little effort. So whether or not your company will stay small, AvailSuite Personal is the best way to start. No other business management software fits so well with micro businesses and startups.
