We added a feature to Neetrix today that will either make you shout with JOY or say ‘you what’? Shall I explain?
If you use Neetrix to run one business then you are unlikely to notice any differences; don’t get me wrong using Neetrix for your business is great and we are really glad that we can help you. If there is anything (whatever it is, and however small it is) that we can do to make Neetrix work better for you please let us know! However if you use Neetrix to power multiple businesses, or perhaps you consult for more than one business; you have likely come across one limitation. You couldn’t access more than one company at a time on the Neetrix platform until now!
For example if you opened up your Printing Company’s accounting screen and then opened another browser tab for the stock screen of your Wedding Stationery Company things would go a little wonky. The problem is that the Neetrix system couldn't be sure which company you wanted to look at; was it the one you had open first, or the one you looked at last?
So at the request of our users we have added the ability for every company to have their very own “administration address”. This is like a subsection of Neetrix for each of your companies; this not only means that you can have multiple companies open at once in your browser tabs, you can also bookmark areas of Neetrix for specific companies! Here is an example:
Alice and Bob run two companies; their Pie Shop in the center of town (Alice and Bob’s Cottage Pie Shop), and their wholesale business (Pies R Us). Alice is the brains of the outfit she is great with the pies, and great with the computer; Bob on the other hand.... well lets not go there. They use Neetrix to run the businesses, unfortunately Bob get’s a bit confused between the two companies and often sends invoices for big pie deliveries from the wrong businesses. But now thanks to the Neetrix administration addresses it’s really easy for them to see which company they are using: cottagepie.admin.neetrix.com and piesrus.admin.neetrix.com
Alice can email Bob a link to the latest stock sheet for Pies R Us and there is no chance that he will end up looking at the Cottage Pie sheets! To make things even easier they can now bookmark their most used sections of Neetrix for each company. So rather than having to login to Neetrix and navigate to the section they need after selecting the company; they can just click a bookmark, login and they are there!
Back to the upgrade, along with the “administration addresses” this upgrade has allowed us to include some more subtle feature, for example: Your previous searches are now company specific rather than being across your entire Neetrix account.
To sum it up, this upgrade to Neetrix is for people that have more than one business or consult for more than one business. If that isn’t you don’t be sad, we will have even more features for you coming soon. As always if there is a feature you would like to see in Neetrix please contact us and let us know!
The days are finally starting to get a little longer and the sun is starting to make an appearance, although it is actually snowing here (not the good snow, just the light stuff). The impending spring may bring thoughts of sun and holidays to some, but to you and your business it probably means the Budget (the 20th of March) and the end of the tax year on the 5th of April.
When you started your business a few years back it was probably quite easy to get everything in line for the end of the tax year; a pile of paper invoices, perhaps an employee or two’s pay slips and some receipts for expenses. But as the years have gone by it’s started to build up;now it's a few folders of PDF invoices, an excel file of employee data, some scanned receipts, some emailed purchase invoices, oh and those expenses that someone submitted for that trade show in... where was it again?
Do you feel like you have to work overtime to prepare for April 5th? Or perhaps you need to second someone to assist you, but do you trust someone else to work with the companies finances? It doesn't have to be this hard, wouldn’t it be great if all your systems talked to each other and you could just generate summaries and returns? No need to re-key data from your employee spreadsheet into your finances, or your invoices to your stock system. This is where Neetrix comes in!
Neetrix provides an entire suite of hosted business management software; run from the cloud. This means that you can have it up and running in mere minutes (seriously, give it a try with our free trial!), and you don’t need any special hardware. Infact you can run Neetrix using the PC or Mac that you are reading this post with! Because all of the Neetrix products talk to each other there is no need to re-key information, if you sell an item to a customer it’s instantly in your financial data; its even deducted from your stock system!
You can access Neetrix from anywhere; so there is no need to be tied to your desk during these busy periods. Why not prepare the end of year finances from home, or even from a cafe on the beach (where it’s not snowing!).
You can try any of Neetrix’s features (or the entire suite) for free 30 days, no credit card needed. If you have any questions about Neetrix or just want some more information about our services please contact us via the support page or call on 0845 862 8800.
I had a great meeting with a prospect today. Currently they are spending up to 50% of their time processing their sales paperwork. I showed them how to this and more in less than 10% of the existing time.. What a result for Neetrix!
Come speak with us if you want to find out how you can do this for your business.
We have been so busy this year at Neetrix that we haven’t even had the chance to say “Happy New Year” to you all, so here it is.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Already this year we have bolted on two new features to Neetrix Contacts; Relationships and external ‘external email accounts’. For those of you who are heavily into referral marketing relationships should be a dream. Looking into the future Neetrix Contacts will allow you to build contact maps, letting you determine the worth of referrals (or any other relationship type).
The new “Email Accounts” section of Neetrix is the first step on the road to a full Neetrix Inbox. Inbox is close to becoming the central place to manage your emails (even from external suppliers like GMail and Google Apps). This will allow you to improve your contact workflows, every email will be matched up with the sender's contact; showing all their details be it tasks, note, jobs, orders or events. We are still reviewing and designing the inbox system, we don’t want to add something that is too expensive or compromises the efficiency of Neetrix.
Since Christmas we at Neetrix have started to embrace social media, you can now find us on all the major social sites:
So please follow, friend and join us so we can start to build Neetrix alongside you our users; and simplify your business!
We are a modern internet based business and it isn't often we get a chance of meeting both current and future clients and partners face to face.
This year we are exhibiting at the Business Startup Show in ExCel, London on the 17th and 18th of May. We will be on stand 1013 and will have both the Neetrix team and Neetrix resellers (SpiderGroup - www.spidergroup.com) to help answer any questions you might have about what you are looking for in a management system for your own business.
We will also be available to talk about our partner programmes and ways in which you could use Neetrix as a significant value added service to your business and still be able to earn an additional passive income at the same time.
If you wish to book a more in-depth meeting and demo with us, please get in contact soon to get a time arranged.
We are all looking forward to seeing you at the show!
If you are a business owner, like myself, then it is very likely that you are also proud of it. Your business is your baby and you probably spend more time on it than your spouse and other children would like. But you do this because you enjoy what you do, and you want to put every effort into it to become a huge success.
However, sometimes you just need to get time away, and with the summer coming up, it is the time of the year to start thinking about a well deserved holiday.
To some business owners, the word "holiday" sounds much more of a nightmare than a pleasant break. Some go years without a holiday, and you have to ask yourself, why work so hard if you can't earn yourself a little time-out.
One of the key reasons business owners don't like going on holiday is because their businesses are left behind. This might not be problem for most businesses, but the anxiety of not knowing what is going on back in the office can leave very little time to switch off and actually relax around a pool. I'm not saying that as a business owner we want to do work whilst on holiday, but being able to rest the mind knowing that everything is going to plan back home, that the office isn't on fire, and that after the holiday you won't be coming back to an overblown inbox would mean you could at least clear your mind of worry and doubt and focus on the family and holiday.
In the traditional way that businesses run, I'm really not surprised owners are nothing but stressful on holiday. There is no communication back with the business other than perhaps your email and the faith that your team isn't missing anything important. After all, no one knows your business like you do.
I try and go on holiday once a year, and the last time I went I had the most relaxing break in my entire 15 year career as a business owner. At the same time, I didn't do any work that would disrupt the holiday. How did I do this? Well, it took just two elements. Time management and the right tools. Firstly I realised that between the day of activities or relaxation and dinner, there was a moment when you end up being back in the bedroom getting washed and changed for the evening. In that time the rest of the family is doing the same, and it becomes the most productive and non-disruptive time to do 30 minutes of work. I say "work", but what I really mean is to respond to any urgent emails and check on the progress of the team and the business as a whole.
Having Neetrix as my tool, I can access my entire business in real-time over the internet. This means I can quickly see what the team has been up to, what new business has come in, the progress of jobs and the ability to (even with large time zone differences) communicate back to the teams about what needs to be done, of which I can check again the following evening. So this means that spending just 30 minutes or less in the day, at a time that would otherwise be lost, you can go through the rest of the evening and the following day knowing that everything was steaming ahead as it should at home, and that anything that needs to be done is being handled. Which all means you are getting the time with the family and a mind that is free and relaxed enough to enjoy it!
If you are thinking about a holiday this summer, think about how you are going to manage your anxiety levels whilst away, and if you don't have the tools to help with this, then come and speak to us about how we can help you have the truly relaxing holiday that you deserve.
The Contact Filter feature was developed by our team at Neetrix last year, and has since received a lot of very positive feedback and proven to be extremely useful to our customers. This reporting feature has improved Neetrix capability to create complex filters that you can use to identify key contacts for your campaigns or your potential renewable leads.
An example of such a contact filter would be filtering everyone from a certain postcode that has been in a particular contact group for a number of days and have a certain status but, because we have complete accounting integration too, can also filter out who did not purchase anything in the last 6 months.
The advanced filtering options can offer more fine-grained control over which customers to target for a specific marketing campaign. By filtering customers who have or have not purchased a specific product, or product group, during a specific period you can have additional control not just over your customers’ purchasing patterns, but also on how to act on the data you have gathered.
The Contact Filter addresses the need for businesses to target customers based on specific information. Your customers’ behaviour can be captured and used to better market your products. The new feature can help you segment the groups not just by choosing certain persons, but by including information on how interested they are in your products, or what they are interested in. The new integrated filter in the easy to use Neetrix interface brings together not just demographics but also psychographics.
For your business to grow, your marketing efforts need to rely on solid data. By tracking the data and analyzing it using the new Neetrix feature, you can be sure that all your marketing efforts will be worthwhile.
Although the ability to filter customers by their status, group or contact information has been embedded in our Neetrix suite since we started, we have developed the Contact Filter to the point of it becoming an even more useful tool for managing your accounts.
The new complex filters have helped our customers redefine their strategies and gather more relevant data to help them in the decision process for their marketing strategies. We have received positive feedback not just on this new feature, but also on our continuous efforts to improve our product and offer valuable tools for you to implement and use to develop your business.
We constantly receive updates from our customers, which are the most important incentives for us to continue developing our product in order to assist them in creating a successful business. And seeing that our customers thrive while using our business software makes us all the more willing to offer the perfect tools that help you get the most of your business data.
Neetrix business suite will dazzle you this year with the new features that are constantly being added. Our newest offer includes varied ways of importing customers from almost anywhere. And once you’ve imported your customers, Neetrix allows you to export all your accounting information in Excel. This can be done for any given period for Excel 2007 and 2010.
We have built a robust import and export mechanism into our business software in order for you to benefit from the flexibility to do exactly what you specifically need for your particular business. You can easily import your customer information from any existing database and add it to your e-commerce store. Such a feature can be useful when you are moving to Neetrix from another e-commerce application, from your accounting software or any other CRM. Once you have added an online store to StoreFront, you can use this feature to add all the customer accounts that are already in your accounting. This way your customers will easily and smoothly start using your virtual store and you do not have to spend time formatting your files in order to access them for your e-commerce application.
You can either add new customer accounts or update and append existing customer information. If you have kept customer information on paper, in spreadsheets, in an accounting program but you now want to use a central database for all your customer information, then Neetrix is what you have been looking for.
Your customer database may include contact details, customer preferences, communication history, sales history, payments. Using our new feature, your data accuracy will be improved and you do not have to go through the hassle of synchronizing multiple sources of data.
And once you have all your information stored in your Neetrix database, you can also export data into Excel to create reports for any period of time. Everything you need to run your business smoothly up in the cloud is right here, incorporated in our business software. And we do not plan to stop here. New features will be added in order to offer you ease of navigation and a truly professional experience when using Neetrix suite.
Freezing temperatures and snow in the U.K. are disrupting the supply chain for retailers. Some of them, located away from the cities are at risk of running out of fuel. As Britain is experiencing the earliest snowfall since 1993, frozen roads and disrupted traffic stand in the way of running a traditional brick and mortar business. Extreme winter spells may last for a days and this year’s early start to winter has disrupted road, rail and air transport not only in Britain, but also in many parts of northern Europe. As snow covered much of the country, delays on major roads and railway lines or closing down of airports are creating havock for businesses of every kind.
