AppsForOps automates several common business processes in a digital workplace with the global scale of Microsoft Azure

Reading Time: 4 minute(s)

Time and money are unquestionably the two most valuable resources for small and medium businesses (SMBs). As the allocation of these resources to technology becomes more of a priority in the digital economy, transformation projects, depending on their scale, can make or break a small business’s bottom line. It begs the question, how can SMBs respond effectively and nimbly to the new requirements of their staff in a digital workplace, stay agile, streamline their operations and remain competitive?

AppsForOps aims to increase efficiencies for small and medium businesses by providing a suite of integrated business apps that automate their business operations. End users can access these apps anytime, anywhere. AppsForOps customers can start with the full suite of apps or start with one and grow to more. Examples of applications are Expense Claim, Expense Pre-approval, Invoice, Receipt & Bill, Scheduler, Time Off, Timesheet and Travel Request management and more.

Built on Microsoft Azure and integrated with Microsoft Office 365, AppsForOps enables SMBs to focus on what they do best, reducing the time and money spent on the admin-heavy, yet critical back end that keeps their businesses ticking along.

Azure provides AppsForOps the flexibility to evolve as needs change and the ability to scale. Using Azure means that AppsForOps can deliver a reliable and highly available service while benefiting from enterprise-grade security.

From dairy farmers in New Zealand to charities in Canada, to IT consultancies and architectural firms in Australia, diverse SMBs globally are responding to and embracing Sydney-based, AppsForOps’ integrated digital workplace.

“All of these apps are seamlessly integrated, which means no more challenges with data across multiple systems or users having to go log in to multiple places to get their work done.” – Rudi van der Walt, Director of Sales and Marketing, SourceCode

The Problem:

  • Small and medium businesses (SMBs) spend a huge amount of time on manual execution of tasks and business processes using paper, spreadsheets, email and standalone application-driven interaction between team members.
  • Modern day end users know better, and employees value automation efforts and having access to mobile apps to get their work done.
  • SMBs generally do not have the time, budget or IT resources to solve some of these day-to-day problems in-house.
  • While several vendors offer solutions in this space, most of the offerings are narrowly focused and do not lend themselves to offering a well-integrated experience.
  • Things get lost, visibility is low, and data exists in silos. Lots of time is wasted at significant cost to the business. Time and money are two of any business’s most valuable resources.

Wow! 1,000,000 subscribers. Congrats Xero, we couldn’t be prouder.

Reading Time: 2 minute(s)

Today Xero announced that they passed 1 million subscribers worldwide on their global cloud accounting platform.

Wow! 1,000,000 subscribers.

We couldn’t be prouder of our technology partner Xero – a huge congrats to Rod Drury and the Xero team.

Here is one of the most exciting parts, we are just at the start:

Not many business software companies get anywhere near a million customers. Yet as far as we can tell, of the more than hundred million small businesses out there in the world, only a few million are currently running any type of cloud accounting software. So we’re still just at the start.

We look forward to many more years of working with Xero and helping small and medium businesses run a better, beautiful business.

Meet Louise (Customer Care Lead). Let’s hear how she uses AppsForOps.

Tell me a bit about what you do on a day to day basis

As I have multiple roles covering Customer Care, Invoicing and Staff Coordination, I have a busy email inbox. Customer Care takes priority so I need to keep interoffice emails to a minimum.

Tell me a bit about what apps you use, what you love about them and how they save you time

I love the way the Timesheet, Expense Claim and Invoice apps work together. End of month invoicing for consulting services used to take me 3 days with a lot of painful reconciliation. It now takes a morning. As I can run the reports for any time period, I now schedule customer appointments and holidays at the end of the month.

When there is a team birthday, a new account won or change in the company, I post it on the Newsfeed. As the consulting team are working onsite at customers, it keeps them informed on what is happening in the office. The benefit for me is that everyone can comment on the post and my inbox is not full of “Reply to All” comments.

As most of the team work remotely, it is difficult to coordinate team events. I now create a Poll. I can get the information I need and see who to chase up with trying to deal with in my busy inbox.

Meet Louis (Principal Consultant). Let’s hear how he uses AppsForOps.

Tell me a bit about what you do on a day to day basis

I am the Principal Consultant at SourceCode, and apart from assisting my team with technical queries and doing project estimation and scope, I am also responsible for the Consulting Services and Support Team and their schedules.

I need to create new projects against which we could assign resources, log time and most importantly generate invoices that we then send out to customers.

On top of this, I am responsible for the scheduling of resources and I need to make sure we have the right people available at the right time. As such, I have to ensure the correct skills are on the right projects, manage leave requests and ensure timesheets are approved and accurate.

Previously, this was managed in different systems, emails and spreadsheets – and you can imagine how quickly you can drown in your own admin!

Tell me a bit about what apps you use, what you love about them and how they save you time

Here are some of the apps that I use:

Project
We need to make sure we’re on top of the work that needs to be done for our customers. We’re not a big consulting team, and a lot of the time our resources are divided amongst projects – it becomes difficult to track what projects we have for which customers, and to ensure that the right work is done by the right people. Project is a great aid in this – it gives us the ability to track and manage all work which is required for our customers.

Timesheet
No one likes to do admin – believe me, I know! With the AppsForOps Timesheet app, a task which is traditionally the last thing on our mind now becomes a quick and painless exercise. But because life happens, a timesheet is sometimes neglected. To save the day, the AppsForOps Timesheet app has an automated email reminder; this makes quick work of catching up on outstanding work.

The Timesheet app helps to give me full visibility into what our resources are doing on which projects on a weekly basis – and as an organisation we now have a much better understanding of actual workload that goes into the different projects. We can gauge what is happening on the projects (because of the ability to add detailed comments to captured time), along with the billed hours vs the actual hours the team spent. We always knew our team worked very hard – and now I have a digital record of this too!

My Dashboard
There is nothing worse than having to dig through a system to find the right information. Using My Dashboard in AppsForOps, I have the ability to quickly access any report I need, be that for Customers, Projects, Tasks or most important for me – resourcing. All the relevant information is available at the tip of my fingers – no more guessing where to find things I need!

Mobile App
AppsForOps offers a neat and easy to use mobile app. I would be completely lost without it! All of the functionality you could want is available on the app. And it’s designed for work on the go. I can perform all approvals quickly and at any time using the mobile app. In fact, I do this a lot while in the back of a cab or travelling on the train. Our consultants no longer need to carry around all sorts of receipts for their expense claims – a quick 2 step process (picture of the receipt, and capture some detail) allows them to add a line item to an expense claim before they’ve even taken the first sip of a cup of coffee!

My Calendar
We have all sorts of calendars on all sorts of different systems – and bringing these together without incurring a large cost is very difficult. The My Calendar app which AppsForOps provides gets rid of this problem like a hot knife through butter! It’s a central view where I can see everything I want when it comes to my company. In one view, I can see all of the Time Off in the organisation, all public holidays, when each important event is and also have important dates listed which I need to be aware of.

It is also a great help when it comes to the approval process of Time Off requests and resource planning. I can easily see which consultants are available before committing time on a project or approve a Time Off request – previously this was done using a combination of spreadsheets, emails and a lot of trying to remember what I was doing – now, it’s a simple glance at a single view on AppsForOps.
