Business Management On the Go With New AppBy: Mike Tuttle - February 23, 2012
Online sellers are constantly making decisions away from their computers – whether deciding to purchase inventory at an auction or choosing their shipping options at USPS. Now, sellers can be better informed when making those decisions. Outright, an online accounting solution, today announced that it has released a mobile application that online sellers can use on their mobile devices to keep track of sales and expense data while on the go.
“It is critical for our online sellers to be able to manage their businesses from wherever they are, and the Outright Mobile app lets them do just that,” said Steven Aldrich, CEO of Outright. “Now, they can make decisions about buying inventory while they are actually in the store, and, in the next version of our app, they will be able to record cash transactions immediately on their mobile device.”
According to a recent AT&T survey, 85% of small businesses reported using a smartphone for their business operations. This is more than double the usage five years ago (42%). For those that use mobile apps (30%), the main reasons they cited were to save time, increase productivity and reduce costs. The new Outright app will help them to do all three and will drive an increased usage of mobile apps in small businesses across the nation. The app will allow the business owner to see a complete view of their money available and current balances in bank and credit card accounts so that they can make the best decision on how much to buy and from which account.
The Outright Mobile app is available in the iTunes App Store or at offers.outright.com/mobile. The solution features a business overview/snapshot, account lists and balances, income transactions and details, “In The Know” alerts, and expense transactions and details. “Add / edit” features to allow the input of cash-based transactions will also be launched shortly.
