For a small office or team keeping track of multiple projects at once can be a challenge. OfficeTools provides an all-in-one affordable (less than $60 per month) and accessible (cloud based) project management solution to keep your team on task. If your organization uses products such as Quickbooks or Outlook you can easily integrate them into this software solution. I honestly cannot think of an organizational structure that would not benefit somewhat from integrating OfficeTools into their operations

ScaleFactor
I work with several businesses and have attempted to bring ScaleFactor into multiple. Thus far the business status/environment has been suitable for ScaleFactor only once, but I'll continue to look for more. ScaleFactor is great when a company has matured beyond the owner making all accounting and banking entries. As soon as multiple systems are needed, it's likely a decent time to call ScaleFactor. I'm confident my operations could run through ScaleFactor for a long time as the next step for us would be something akin to NetSuite or some other more rigid enterprise solution. Additionally, our business has a geographically displaced work force, typically working from home. Having access to all systems via the cloud has been great. No longer do we have to pass a specific computer back and forth for a physical computer software license. It's enabled maximum work flow convenience.

  • Could connect with All saving accounts i.e. Building society saving aswell as major banks.
  • When a connected bank or savings account hasn't been used for a month or 2 it could show a 0 transaction to keep it updated rather then saying "last updated 3 months ago"

OfficeTools is by far the easiest project management tool that I've ever used. It is very user friendly and easy to pickup. That cannot be said for other products that I've used in the past

Scale factor, can be used like Xero I believe. However all my past data was already stored in Xero so I used it as an add on. It is a lot more user friendly and helpful, i.e. you don't need to be an accountant to use it. However I am not sure it is useable anymore or supported, so i have gone back to using Xero alone.

ScaleFactor
  • They have been fundamental in helping us grow and scale at a relatively low cost in comparison to out-sourcing these functions. We can spend more on other items that can fuel growth while knowing the back end is taken care of.
  • They provide automated supports for key areas like payroll, expenses, etc so that we can quickly get back to focusing on the other items.
