With the advent of cloud-based computing and the ever-progressing steps in the technology world, businesses are turning much more to Internet-based programs to help them operate efficiently and keep all their resources organised. Just look at the recent rise of web-based software that is aimed solely at businesses (especially project management software) and you can see that people want to be able to access the IT resources of their business no matter where they are in the world and no matter what device they are using.

But is there really a solution that can run a company completely? Well, MYCO Suite thinks it can. It is an online ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system aimed towards small and medium sized businesses which is designed to run almost every single department of a company, from the purchasing and procurement side of things to the sales and human resources side. Unlike conventional ERP systems, which often require a refresh of the entire IT system and can often be a financial burden on companies, MYCO Suite is low-cost ($15 monthly for each user) and is entirely Net-based, meaning that businesses do not have to spend thousands on refreshing their entire IT system.

MYCO Suite may well be a fantastic solution for some companies who need access to their resources not only from the office. To find out whether it is a great tool or not, I signed up for the 7-day free trial and tested it for myself. Here are my findings…

As a customer, quotes don’t mean much to us. They are just pieces of paper filled with a list of items and the best prices a business can offer us. However, on the other end of the spectrum, quotes and leads are the bread and butter of almost every business. In a competitive world, price quotations help win customers without spending a whole lot on customer acquisition.

There are tons of enterprise software available for generating comprehensive price quotes, and they are often included as modules in modern CRM and ERP software. But like every other domain that uses software, quote creation apps are available online too. Socket is an easy to use, online quote creation app that promises to make your life easier by automating your quotation process. Interested to know how?

No matter how large your business is, a standard address book likely won’t cut your contact management needs. Even freelancers and small businesses need to keep up with customers, suppliers, industry contacts, and all of the individual information about them. Depending on your business, you may need to keep up with potential deals and proposals, current issues, outstanding bills or issues, and more. What you need is a customer relationship manager (CRM) to help you keep track of everything.

The only problem is, there are so many CRM systems avilable, it’s hard to know which one to choose. Plus, most are expensive and difficult to use. 37signals Highrise is one of the more popular CRM webapps, and while it’s not necessarily the cheapest option, it’s easily one of the simplest to use while covering the features your business needs. Let’s take a look at what Highrise has to offer.

Acquiring new customers is a painstaking & costly exercise. You’ll have to run from one end to another marketing or pitching your product to customers. Often times it takes an umpteen number of meetings before you can sign the customer. All the previous calls & meetings with lost opportunities are not entirely useless either.

A combined knowledge of successful & unsuccessful pitches will help make your next sales call more efficient. On a similar note, customer retention is just as important. As repeat sales lead to positive word of mouth and less overhead towards marketing. But how can you achieve all these things economically & effectively? Using a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) solution such as vtiger.
