Shoeboxed and the Small Business Web: Connecting Apps to Help Your Business

At Shoeboxed, we know that receipt and contact management is only one step in your busy day. A successful small business has to juggle marketing, sales, invoices, and taxes, and still have time left over to do actual billable work!

Making life easy for small businesses is what Shoeboxed is all about, but we only help with receipts and business cards. We know you need other great software services throughout the day to help you save time and be more professional.

So, to help one of the coolest things we’ve done along with some other great brands is create The Small Business Web. The Small Business Web is a movement to bring like-minded, customer-obsessed software businesses together, integrate our respective services and make life easier for small business owners.

That way your services all work together. So, your expense scanning service can send information to your invoicing service and your invoicing service can send data to your accounting service. Or your CRM clients can be invoiced using your invoicing service and can be used to build lists for your email marketing program. And so on.

It’s like having a virtual business-suite of products – but you get to choose the ones that are best for your business. And because we all focus on what we do best, you don’t have to compromise on any service to get them all. Check out the other members of the Small Business Web!
