A technology entrepreneur has created an income-boosting mobile app that's lifting profits at small businesses in the U.S. and Canada.
"Small business can't afford to be stupid any more about technology," says David Crary, who's teaching small-business owners how to increase profits through mobile innovation.
A keen, plain-spoken source, Crary would be happy to discuss how small companies can capitalize on mobile technology.
You know how a UPS or FedEx deliverer taps a few spots on a screen to record work? Well, Crary created a small-business system – the HindSite Solution – that records all business data on netbooks and smartphones.
Repair workers carry them while banging away under a truck chassis or wrenching some pipes in a basement, because the system is so easy to use.
No more clipboards. No more paperwork.
HindSite’s 300-plus customers volunteer compelling stories:
A husband-and-wife business in New Jersey says the service "saved our marriage" because workers leave no paperwork mound for the couple to dive into at night.
“Amazing… Thank you, thank you,’’ says a Texas customer.
Another in Vancouver, B.C., says he’s simply “ecstatic” about the service.
Small business has trailed large companies in technology for many years. Now little companies, whose IT department might be a teenage son or daughter, can do the same thing the big guys have being doing since the early 90s.
An example of efficiency from HindSite’s repair-service clients:
Because the software precisely measures time on the job, revenue rises. The average increase is one billable hour per day for each worker. Assuming a service charge of $75 an hour, that’s $1,500 a month in added revenue per worker.
An 11-employee company in St. Paul, Minn., home of innovators such as 3M Co., HindSite Software's revenue has grown 47 percent over last year, despite a tough economy. That’s because its customers know the ROI for small business is huge.
Response to HindSite indicates this is a consumer story, too. With thousands of laid-off workers thinking of going into business for themselves, HindSite is demonstrating what can be done for start-up businesses through smart thinking.
