This is a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) program designed for small businesses. Companies use it to manage their clients remotely from any location and to attract more business opportunities online and on social media. It's tailored specifically for service providers, but is used by business owners in a number of different industries, from business consultants to fitness trainers, handyman professionals, landscapers and more.

Essentially the tool lets your clients discover, book, and pay for jobs while you're working.

You can easily collect payments from any mobile device, so there's no need for fancy hardware.
