Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

Apptivo started off on a shoestring budget and we bootstrapped all through the initial product development phase. After we opened Apptivo to the public last year we started looking for funding, to help with our marketing activities. Just a couple of months ago we closed our first round of funding from a group of angel investors.

Why would a small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers, etc use your product?A Single Platform to Manage your Business, for FREE!

Most small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers, etc are on a shoestring budget and always are on the lookout for ways to decrease their costs and increase efficiency. Nobody wants to have accounts in 10 different tools and move their data from one tool to the other. Apptivo helps address all these requirements. Therefore, people have nothing to lose and all to gain. We offer all the necessary tools for anyone to start their own company from scratch. Most importantly all the tools are in a single place; speak to each other and share the data.

Why did you start this company?

We saw a huge opportunity to combine all the different services which small business owners and startups need into one convenient location for businesses, and make it all FREE!

Are there different pricing levels?

All the major Apps in Apptivo are absolutely FREE.

As mentioned earlier, there are a few apps that are paid but there are no pricing levels. You pay for what you need. Paying for unnecessary services or Apps when on a shoestring budget can be costly, so we do not group apps together, nor have any unnecessary bundles. You pay for exactly what you need.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

As far as we know there is no other company which provides such a huge variety of business web applications in a single platform. There are a lot of companies which provide standalone tools for different business requirements as mentioned below:

Project management – BasecampHQ

Customer Relationship Management – Salesforce, SugarCRM

Timesheets and Invoicing – Freshbooks

We combine what our competitors have to offer on one platform and give it out for Free. If that wasn’t enough we integrate with numerous third party services and offer them through Apptivo at a lower cost to our users.

Do you have a blog that keeps users updated?

We started a blog called Small Business University to help new entrepreneurs and business owners learn how to manage and organize their business. It is open to anyone who may be interested in expanding and growing their business. We also have many guest blogs from experts in various industries.

How do you see your company in the next 2-5 years?

We see Apptivo being the one-stop shop for all kinds of tools and services which small business owners, entrepreneurs and freelancers need. You can say that Apptivo is going to be the Costco of services and tools for small medium business owners.

Do you use social media? Facebook? Twitter? LinkedIn?
