The CRM app for micro business owners launches their beta product for Android
From 24.me to Any.Do, task management apps with calendar and contact sync are all the rage on the consumer side while with CRM systems, all you hear from startups these days is ‘enterprise’. But what about cases where the line between consumer end users and businesses becomes blurred? Cases of micro-business owners or contract professionals. How do they juggle their todo’s and their contacts, keeping business and pleasure separate – except when it pays to mix’em together?
CRM for the little guy
ONDiGO is a CRM app designed for micro-businesses and professionals, helping them to manage their client base – the most important asset of most businesses, and even more so for micro-business owners.
The app takes a user’s personal contacts list and juices it up with business categorization and action features that allow users to view their contacts within a context of past present and future interactions. Did this guy buy from me before? If so, when and what? What did we discuss the last time this person walked into my store, and did I jot down an action item to order something for them that I got in and then put it somewhere in storage?
All these histories and actions are easily recorded into your contacts with color coordinating labels that let you know at a glance where you stand with each contact of yours in your list. Files can be saved and attached to specific contacts and ONDiGO syncs seamlessly with your calendar and with Google voice for recording notes and appointments.
“Our users are really excited about ONDiGO and the ability to have every detail about their customers aggregated on their mobile devices and with them all the time,” says Nir Keren, Co-Founder and CTO. “It confirms a known market pain small business owners experience in their day-to-day life.”
The app is light and clean at first glance and it’s free. But bare in mind we’re talking a beta launch here so expect some bugs and be pleasantly surprised if there aren’t any. I think it’s worth a tryout so long as you don’t rely on it for any mission critical tasks without backup. Standard operating procedure for betas…are you getting this down? Well maybe if you had your ONDiGO out and handy (wink, wink).
ONDiGO was founded in 2012 by Ohad Oren and Yoni Dariel. They employ 10 people at their offices in Palo Alto, CA. The company has raised $120K in funding; $20K from UpWest labs and and another $100K from private Angel investment.
