Hate doing paperwork?

Welcome to the club! You are not alone. Very few of us went to school to learn how to manage our business. In fact it is the least fun and most painful part of our daily lives.

1. Booking appointments – how many times do you have to play phone tag with a client to get an appointment booked, or worse take a call from one client while you are servicing another one? Our on-line booking allows your clients to book their appointments with you thru the Cyber Receptionist easily and accurately.

2. Doing your “paperwork” – do you put off your sales tracking, sales tax work, and general paperwork till the last minute? Our sales tracking and analysis system keeps your information current each day and makes printing reports a breeze.

3. Marketing and growing your business – are you doing your New Client Thank You, Birthday, Reminder, and Referral Reward mailings or e-mails? Our system will send out the e-mails and text messages for these proven strategies each week automatically at No Extra Cost!
