Customer Success Story: How Rivet Solutions Re-Established ThinkLABS’ Sales and Marketing Division with Zoho CRM

Posted by Posted on by

logo1Rivet Solutions is a consulting company that provides dynamic IT and business solutions in a variety of divisions to clients around the world. About eight months ago, Ameya Nisal, a consultant for Rivet Solutions, and his team were called in to find a solution to the inefficient marketing process currently in place at ThinkLABS.

thinklabs+logoThinkLABS is India’s largest hands-on science and technology education provider. Since its inception in 2006, ThinkLABS has partnered with roughly 300 primary and secondary schools as well as 23 colleges across 23 Indian states.

“It is the brainchild of Gagan Goel (an Indian Institute of Technology alumnus). He has spearheaded their entire mission,” Nisal said. “ThinkLABS establishes robotics labs in schools to motivate young people through hands-on learning in the arenas of science and technology. They also provide further training to university students—preparing college students for careers in innovative technological fields, like robotics.”

5 Reasons why businesses should use ACH transfer

Posted by Posted on by

Next to cash, credit cards and debit cards have become the most popular form of payment. According to the 2013 Federal Reserve Payment Study, the number of transactions for debit cards and credit cards is 47bn and 23.8bn, respectively; both will continue to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 6.5 percent.

If debit cards and credits cards are so popular, then why are businesses exploring other mediums for making and receiving payments?

The answer lies in the high processing cost associated with each transaction when carried out with a debit card or credit card. This is where an Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer comes in.

Shift base from Intuit QuickBase: Free Migration to Zoho Creator quicker than ever!

Posted by Posted on by

Any service that your business depends upon has got to be reliable. Be it your email service or CRM tools or even your database software, there cannot be any compromise. But what would you do, when you find yourself in a situation where, one of your service providers drops a bombshell that they are ceasing operations and handing over the baton to a different company to provide you the product support and services.

Two weeks ago, Intuit announced that they are planning to divest three of their well regarded softwares: Quicken, QuickBase and Demandforce. According to Intuit, QuickBase does not support the current ecosystem of QuickBooks online and it mostly serves customers that are up-market from their core small business customers.

Quickbase Alternative

Intuit had mentioned in its company statement that it has decided to focus and sell products, “to strengthen its ecosystem and align with two strategic goals: to be the operating system behind small business success and to the nations’ taxes in the U.S and Canada.” (Source: Business Wire)

As Intuit seeks to divest its products, this decision leaves QuickBase customers stranded. Need I say more? This is a warning for you to be worried about your business data. QuickBase has no clue who is going to buy them, nor do you have a clue about who is going to handle your data or your product support. We’ve seen it happen with DabbleDB and we’ve seen it happen with Coghead too. We would like to reassure all you QuickBase customers: You need not worry about a place to go!
