The ultimate online business system

3-in-1 that work as One!

Over the past year we have been searching high and low for a super-efficient business system we can use in TJConsulting and offer to our clients. And finally, after trying and testing, reading 100s of reviews – it’s here.

It consists of 3 parts, but don’t despair – they all work as One, efficient, online, affordable solution. And they are…. Xero, Capsule and MailChimp.

Xero is the accounting system of the 21st century. If you are not an accountant and dread “reconciliation” or “P&L” – this is the system for you. It’s very simple to use, you can access it from anywhere with an Internet connection and it’s secure.

Capsule is an online Contact Relationship Management (CRM) tool that will integrate with Xero – so you only have to enter your data once. You can track leads and conversion, manage information, analyse sales and productivity, and (yet again) it’s very simple to use!

MailChimp is used to send your newsletters, mailshots and autoresponders. Without being repetitive – it’s simple, clean, straightforward. It can send regular newsletters and schedule a series of messages. MailChimp can integrate with a large number of social media networks, Eventbrite (for event bookings) and is a top-rated social media tool (according to mashable.com).

So what does it mean for you?

  • You can store all business data securely online and give access to your accountant, virtual assistant or staff.
  • You don’t have to move files back and forth between computers risking losing some data.
  • You will save time on re-entering the same data between multiple systems.
  • You don’t have to learn complex new systems to benefit.
  • It’s quick to set up, you can import data from your existing systems or Excel files.
  • Finally, you can try everything for free. And if you do decide to go ahead – your cashflow won’t suffer a severe dip, unlike spending 100s of £s on most IT license fees.

      Thanks for the great post.
      It’s always good to know about new tools. I’m using Xero but with Campaign Monitor (http://www.campaignmonitor.com) and PipeJump (http://www.pipejump.com). Will never switch those as I think they are far better tools but wish they would integrate as nicely as you mention here.

      • Hi Craig,

        Thanks for your comment.

        We’ve been using Campaign Monitor too for our newsletters and some clients however its downside for us now is that there isn’t a facility to send autoresponders apart from the initial one sent on subscription. MailChimp can handle both broadcast campaigns and autoresponders. I’ve had a quick look at PipeJump; to compete with Capsule it would need to be Team subscribtion and above, which unfortunately works out a lot more expensive than Capsule.

        What do you think is the main advantage of using Campaign Monitor over MailChimp?

      Great for online teaching and collaborating. I use it for working on my designs with other in my field.
      Its free and pretty simple – you just upload your file and invite others to view it together.
