Start off your new year on the right foot by getting organized with the best systems and tools for small businesses.
This will be a Round Table format so we can all learn from each other as peers in a group-discussion.
Bring with you a list of business tools you use, have used, love, hate, etc. Categories of tools include accounting & invoicing, project & task management tools, and collaboration & sharing tools. Is there a tool you've been wanting to try? Why not give it a shot before the Meetup and let us know what you think and learned. Or just ask who at the Meetup has used the tool and we'll learn from each other's experience.
For example, at CodeGeek.net we use:
- Basecamp for project management, time tracking, milestones/calendar, and project-related file storage and sharing
- Quickbooks for accounting and invoicing, but I'm interested in using something else for invoicing especially if it can tie into quickbooks somehow for my accountant's sake.
- Trello.com and Workflowy.com for To-Do lists and keeping track of who is working on what
- Google Docs (now Drive) for collaborative file editing, but I'm sure this tool could help us even more if we knew how each of you found it useful to use.
So put on your Santa hat one more time and make a list of the tools and systems that have been naughty and nice. Share your thoughts with us and learn from others too. See you at the Fort Collins Brewery for a great start to the new year.
Appetizers will be provided thanks to our wonderful sponsor and local software company DataSplice!
Happy New Year everyone,
