17 Management Platforms for Entrepreneurs

From Startup Space Apps to Intuitive Business Platforms

— July 16, 2015 — Business
Modern technology has afforded burgeoning entrepreneurs a host of innovative management platforms that make launching a new venture more accessible. While in the past many of these tools may not have been affordable, digital services offered through comprehensive platforms have the chance to revolutionize a small business.

Given that many small ventures may involve teams in different locations, collaborative task management platforms streamline the organization of everyday functions between team members whether they are working remotely or otherwise. Meanwhile, platforms that automate quote-to-cash services can provide the clarity and attention to detail necessary to take a business to the next level.

Especially in the case of young companies, tools such as diverse management platforms allow entrepreneurs to focus on the aspects of their business that require their direct attention while outsourcing and streamlining whenever possible.
