Small Business Toolkit - Welcome note

Welcome to Small Business Toolkit !

It needs guts to start and run a business and a lot of efforts to be successful. Especially when you start a small business with no business background and no big investments or sponsors to back you.

Few years down in this route, I would like to bring the optimum tools in my experience that helps the business to run better. Warning: It is going to be highly opinionated, cost-effective solutions that worked for me and that I feel it will be work for you.


There are few criteria on which I selected the tools

  • Runs on Cloud
    • always on,
    • multiuser, multi device, etc
    • Yeah, I do not own any servers any more (except for an IBM server that lying as antique piece in my house, collecting dust - don't ever buy a server; not any more)
  • FREE
    • Free or
    • Very much affordable,
    • SaaS
  • Secure - no explanation required !


Before, jumping in to the tools, let me list the important functions of Small Business. Being in software business, I orient these functions towards software, but you should be able to align it to your business very easily.

  • Office Suites
  • Finance
  • Productivity
  • Product Management
  • Engineering
  • Marketing
  • Customer Relationship
  • Customer Service
  • Sales
  • Service
  • Project Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Human Resources

Throughout the series of this Small Business - Toolkit articles, I classify the tools into one or more functions. The tools and usage are based on my experience and only based on my experience. I believe the articles help you to achieve better results in whatever that you are doing in your business.


Best wishes for your business success.

May Lord bless you.
