The only Canadian tax app that pushes you straight to a professional

It's tax time again in Canada. Income tax returns for individuals are due in by April 30th with the self employed needing theirs to be filed by June 15th. Nobody likes paying them but taxes are what makes the world go around. There's no reason, however, not to be sure of getting all your deductions in correctly and minimizing the amount that you pay. Big businesses do it all the time so there's no need to feel guilty about it.  More

Simplify your payroll and chat to your staff

While it should be incredibly simple, there's little that causes disharmony in the workplace more than payroll problems. All your employees’ want is to have their wages safely at their disposal on payday with no glitches, no problems and no stuff ups. Sometimes that’s not quite as easy to achieve as it seems - even more so if your staff are working in remote areas. 'halo pay for business' is South African based and a new style of pay vehicle - backed by Barclays Bank subsidiary ABSA bank - that goes some way to solving those problems.  More

A complete restaurant POS from ordering to billing for your Android

It's a strange thing we are going through at the moment with new startups entering the Main Street retail arena. Whenever I walk down the street in my local town, the biggest changes I'm seeing are plenty of massage and fitness clubs, nail adornment stores, women's clothing stores and new restaurants. Have a look yourself the next time you are in town. It's reckoned that if you are still in business after a year, you are doing pretty well.  So, if you are a new restaurant, it's more important than ever to be using the right point of sale (POS) system to ensure you are running ...  More

Keep your notes, lectures and private thoughts locked away from prying eyes

A few years ago I had a friend who had been laboriously plotting a story that he hoped might be taken up as a tv series. He kept it tucked away on his mobile device and worked on it diligently for over a year. I contacted him again a couple of years later after I'd seen the pilot episode of a new series because the plot line bore a remarkable resemblance to his own. He told me that he'd seen the episode and put two and two together and worked out that, while he'd been at a writers’ workshop, he'd left his device unattended and a fellow writer had been able to access all of his notes. The ...  More

Take the hassle out of conference room bookings

You wouldn't think that there would be too many problems in managing physical conference room reservations, would you? One would figure that you just invite people after checking their schedules and then find a room and work out a convenient time for everyone. There are even models in Outlook and Google Calendar that work on that system. Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. What tends to happen is that some rooms get double booked while others remain empty - causing frustration on all sides. After years of testing, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts has put together a faultless, ...  More

Collaborative data visualization thats easy to use, cost effective and all in one platform

When the app revolution got up and running a few years ago, most of the better apps coming onto the market tended to be rather socially oriented. While there was the odd app specifically made to make business life easier there was very little to help the small businessperson and give them some of the same advantages that big business - with their huge resources - benefited from. Of late, however, there has been a plethora of business apps that go some way to levelling the playing field and giving small business the chance to compete with the big boys.  More

Free set of tools including Word, Excel and PowerPoint for your iPhone and iPad

One of the accusations often leveled at Apple over the years is that anything over the basic model often costs an arm and a leg. The cost of an essential item like Office or Photoshop was so expensive that many would rather hunt up a dodgy copy rather than forking out hundreds of dollars to Apple for the privilege of using the original. Things have changed dramatically in recent times however - seemingly due to the immense popularity of iPhone and iPad devices. Nowadays, there are a heap of different Office styled apps available for iOS as well as its individual components like the word ...  More

Accept credit card payments quickly and easily no matter where you are

There's been plenty of talk over the years about the cashless society. In an ideal world we would just need a swipeable card in our wallet or purse rather than having our pockets full of cash and coins. Unfortunately, the concept has stumbled over the last few years for a number of reasons. First and foremost being the reluctance of small business to get involved in yet another complicated piece of technology not to mention the fees - some hidden - that can be charged. However, with most of us owning a smartphone nowadays, the opportunity for anyone and everyone to accept credit card ...  More

An easy to use CRM for freelancers and small business that is as smooth as silk

Over the years, the FeedMyApp review team has reviewed 1000's of apps - many of which have gone some way to making our lives simpler and easier. Business apps, in particular, have gone from strength to strength during this time, but have changed slightly over the period. In the early days of the app revolution, great innovation tended to pave the way but, of late, the emphasis has been on simplicity of use rather than groundbreaking lightbulb moments. This year there has been a plethora of CRMs aimed primarily at the freelancer or small business owner that have tried to encourage them to ...  More

A simple to use set of small business management tools that can make you more productive

One of things that has been holding back small business when it comes to having an online presence has been lack of technical knowledge. Many business owners are technically challenged by website builders and CRMs, feel that they just don't have the computer skills to maintain them properly or figure that they are just too damned expensive to justify. If they do attempt to enter the online world they will generally cherry pick cheap, individual services and hope that they will all work together somewhere down the line. OElite Platform offers a cost effective set of small business ...  More
