We have been believing this for many years now before it was so widely spread, and we also believe that people can live proudly when we are financially independent. Our way to help out in this world wide awakening, is to provide tools such as this Business Management Software for the people to be able to run their own businesses with confidence. Even if you are not an MBA graduate or some big professional manager. We know that technology offers a great solution to solve and overcome the small business owners problems and failures.

So we set out to develop a more comprehensive free version designed specifically for the business owners and freelancers. We, as small business owners deserve to survive financially on our own.

This is a link to an interesting blog we wrote,explaining why we believe that it is important for people to think about becoming financially independent as they grow older.

Employee Cost automatically calculated into the other modules

What’s more is the unique feature where the employees salaries is automatically calculated and added to future expenses in the Quote, Cash-Flow and Project Management modules. All you need to do for this to happen, is to add the employee name to the other modules and their cost per hour will be calculated automatically. Many business owners forget to add employee time to their costs,especially one-off extra time. This expense has to be reflected per project and as in the cash-flow.

Here in the project module you can see an example of how the employee expense is being calculated automatically

Cash-Flow Management Module- iQDesk Business Management Software

Managing your cash-flow, be it your personal or your business cash-flow is a must! We can’t stress it enough, and it is amazing how easily this ‘must’ is being pushed to the bottom of the priority list. Considering that your cash flow is the one thing that is vital to ensure your business viability. It always comes as a big surprise to us, whenever we analyse other businesses to find out how little effort if any at all is being invested in managing cash-flow.

In our experience , the main reason so many business owners neglect their cash-flow management is that they lack two things:

1. The knowledge to manage cash-flow
2. The time to manage cash-flow

While taking the time to manage your cash-flow can be resolved quite easily, the lack of knowledge was the one that we found more worrying. After all, how can someone assume the role of a business owner without knowing how to deal with the most important aspect of their business? This is a big question, and as a result of it, many so many small businesses fail miserably. Although, there has been a shift in awareness, so many business owners now acknowledge the need of business management , there are still so many gaps in people’s education and expertise to cover them.

The idea behind iQdesk Business Management Software was to literally tackle those gaps. The idea behind teh business software was to make sure that regardless of business owners’s level of education and availability of time, they will be able to run their businesses, while technol;ogy covers those gaps for them.

In a previous post , we covered the project management gap and in this post, we would like to cover the cash-flow management by showing how the iQDesk 2.0 Business Management Software easily manages this tricky aspect of business management.

The cash flow module is split into 3 main screens

Current

The current screen takes all the payments that have already been paid and all the payments that have already been received. This screen is a clever tool, as it feeds automatically from the previous modules where payments has been processed.
All the current cash flow will be displayed on this screen giving the user the ability to see how their finances look at the very same moment.

current_screen_001

Forecast

The Forecast screen will show all the payments that are still to be processed. It covers both the future incoming payments and the future outgoing payments. A user can filter through the relevant dates to get an accurate picture of what the business finances will look like in the future months.
This screen also feeds automatically from previous screens.

forecast_screen_001

Charts and Stats

This screen gives the user a clear and easy to understand display of the business finances.

charts_and_stats_screen

Manage your Payments

For additional flexibility and user control of the system we have added payments management toolbar.
You can do the following:

Add a new cost on an ad hock basis

create_cost

cost_category

cost_category2

Add a Fixed cost that will feed each month on the same date if selected

fixed_cost_

fixed_cost_insert

Export all the data to an excel for easy transfer of data

export

The system also enables to user to filter by dates and also displays an overview of the payments at each stage.

Managing your cash-flow via the iQDesk 2.0 Business Management system, is easy and covers the business financial aspects that are important for your business.

Production Management

project_image1

This section of the project page, may look simple, but if you look closely you will see how powerful it actually is

Production Milestones

The part Production Milestones is basically EVERYTHING you need to do in that project. The nice thing about it, is that the software updates automatically with the production milestones straight from the Quote tool which you had already done. The Production Milestones can be accessed by your employees and they can easily update the progress on each milestone.

Once the progress is updated, the Gantt chart automatically updates as well. Giving you a clear graphic display of your project progress. Your clients who ordered this project can also access this page and see the progress of his or her project.

Create category

create_category

This is the new category you created, you can now add milestones under this category and assign to employees

create_production_milestone

The new milestone us now showing under the new category and the Gantt Chart automatically updates with the completion rate of the milestone

create_milestone3

Project Tasks

The project tasks section, should already be updated from the tasks module itself. This section is essential to keep track of all the things you need to do with this project. You can assign a priority and get alerts when the due date comes. This tool comes in very handy especially for people who find it hard to prioritise their tasks.

create_task_on_project_page

Project Finances

project_image2

This section of the project page, reflects one of the most important aspects of your projects.

This section shows you the finances of your project. On the left hand-side you get to see the money that should come in for the project phases (production milestones, any other payment that should come in) you can generate invoices and send them out to clients and manage your invoicing from there. Invoicing correctly is a skill that needs to be mastered as well, and this software does it for you.

Financial Milestones

financial_screen1

Generate an invoice

Costs Per Project

On the right hand-side you will see the costs per project. It is not enough to see how much money is coming in but it is also essential to see how much money is coming out per this exact same project. You can easily manage your payments from this section and add employee time as an expense. Employee time will update automatically according with the previous employee rate your have entered in the employees management module.

costs_per_project_screen

All costs that are marked as ‘paid’ will feed in the current screen in the Cash Flow Management Module. All Costs that are still ‘in progress’ status will feed into the Forecast screen in the Cash Flow Management Module.

Quote

At the bottom of the screenshot you will see a quote section, this quote section will feed automatically from the quote tool. We have decided to add the quote here as a comparison tool. It is very important to see that you are not exceeding the quote you have given in order to maintain profitability per project.

The Quote of course can not be edited.

quote_on_proejct_screen1

Files,Notes,Calendar

project_image3

The last section of the project page, is a general management section of the project. Although it seems obvious, many business owners find it hard to find the relevant paperwork and contracts associated with a specific project and waste a lot of time trying to retrieve this information. Here you can upload all the contracts and specification documents and all the emails that are linked to this project, having all the files in one place makes sense and is purely good management.

The notes sections, is basically a chatting tool that records all the chats and communication you had with the client. This is far better tool than using emails. Take our word for it, we have been using this toll with our clients since we launched this business management software and it is the best. Not only does it keep good record of everything, you also know exactly where to find the relevant communication.
the calendar is a specifically tailored calendar that reflects the start date and deadlines of the project. it is gets updates automatically in line with the changes in dates you will enter on that page.

What should the business world learn from the industrial revolution

The industrial revolution has marked a massive change in the industrial world. This change has literally revolutionised people’s lives. This 18th century turning point in human evolution turned out to be one of the biggest factors of human economic and personal growth. People’s quality of life and financial situation have changed so dramatically, that although the of changes spanned around years , the change has been a revolution.

The main cause for this change was the shift from manual labour to machines. Work that used to take so much of human effort and energy, turned to something that could be easily executed by machines. Machines and and automation of most of the manual work in factories, have literally, freed people from working endlessly just to see little progress. Efficiency was the best outcome of this entire period of change.

The business world on the other hand is still struggling in adapting those “machines” to replace those “workers” it is the equivalent of working in one of the old factories prior to the industrial revolution and still manually labouring to produce results.

Even in big corporations, we see many businesses which employ thousands of employees to produce reports manually on Excel sheets , instead of using a business software, that can easily generate the reports in a matter of seconds. We constantly see businesses who still hire a team of customer service employees, just to coordinate and book meetings. We see companies that employ people just to take orders from clients. We see many clients who can easily take a huge quick turn in the direction of becoming lean and super efficient.

The idea behind business management software, is very easy. Take the manual labour and turn it into a software. Just like the idea of taking the old manufacturing methods and replacing them by machines. Just like they did back them in the 18th century.
