Smarty Software launches ‘Take Your Business to The Cloud’ Campaign

 

Smarty Software is launching their new campaign “Take Your Business to The Cloud” as part of their Virgin Media’s Voom entry. The campaign focuses on educating entrepreneurs about technological innovations that help them better manage their business operations, thereby saving them time and money.

Entrepreneurs must tackle every aspect of their business from accounting and finances to marketing, mainly, on their own. Managing these responsibilities can be very time consuming and overwhelming, which is where Smarty aims to help. Smarty Software's aids in alleviating some of the burden through their innovative yet easy to use automation technology.

Research from tech.co and realbusiness.co, reports that entrepreneurs and small business owners work, on average, around 60+ hours per week. AutoMate conducted research and found that entrepreneurs could save about 15-20 hours of work each week by incorporating automation software into their business. By automating tasks such as sending recurring invoices, payment reminders, creating email campaigns and more, entrepreneurs will have more free time in their day.

VOOM Pitch 2018 is an exciting opportunity for innovative businesses to showcase their ideas. And this year Smarty Software is getting involved. You can now vote for Smarty or support their crowdfunding campaign.  Smarty Software offers prizes up for grabs including an exclusive lunch with founders, a business workshop ticket or joining company as Non-executive director. 

Smarty Software's Founder & CEO, Farhad Reyazat, expands upon the intent behind the system saying,

“We want to become the number one software solution in the UK for small businesses, and with the backing of VOOM Pitch 2018 we will be able to achieve this ambition much faster. We have already been recognised by prestigious bodies, with a nomination for CRM of the Year at the Network Computing Awards 2018 amongst other industry nods.”

While there are other automation softwares out on the market, many of these focus in specifically on one aspect of business and can be very expensive, costing hundreds of pounds a month. Smarty noticed this lack of integration and capitalised on it by designing a new platform that covers many different operations of running a business, at a low cost (averaging £50-100 a month) that small business owners and entrepreneurs can afford. 

Agnes Gradzewicz, Co-Founder & CMO, explains more about new campaign  

“When starting new ventures, managers need to be multi-skilled and capable in numerous aspects of the business as they are in charge of all the operations taking place. For someone inexperienced it can be a disaster and the business can soon begin to fail. A good manager needs to be able encourage productivity, delegate effectively and is a strategic thinker who is able to look at the ‘bigger picture’ for the business. Our new campaign highlights importance of using technology while running a business. We aim to educate business owners that this could be painless and not expensive way of improving their business operations and lead generation.”

Launching The Smarty Deadlines

We are excited to share a news that we launched a new product - the Smarty Deadlines. A software-based solution is the best option for modern accountancy firms looking to avoid chaos at the end of each financial cycle. And Deadlines from Smarty Software is a good example of how digitising your time management can pay dividends.

Built in conjunction with finance pros, it is designed to empower entire organisations and allow them to stay on top of various vital deadlines for every client.

Powered by the cloud, this software has the added benefit of being remotely accessible, with regular reminders also sent out via email so that you can get an instant snapshot of where things stand with your clients from week to week. There is even a dedicated smartphone app to deliver full functionality on-the-go, while cutting edge servers are fully protected by the latest security measures.

Automatic alerts are issued to ensure that information on VAT, PAYE, Corporation Tax and other key areas is supplied before it is too late. This will prevent the wheels of progress from grinding to a halt on any project. And since Smarty Deadlines takes minutes to set up, is intuitive to use and can coordinate complex tasks across entire organisations, a lot of outdated practices can be eliminated.

Existing client databases can be imported quickly and securely, removing a lot of the legwork in the early stages. Then when deadlines draw near, all employees will know exactly what needs to be done and how much time is left to do it.

Changing the ethos of an accountancy firm takes time, but in truth it can only go so far in the fight against missed deadlines. On the other hand, the right software can catalyse this shift and deliver tangible improvements that will make life easier for employees while giving clients greater confidence in the organisation as a whole.
