Avaza Software has launched the world's first online software suite for professional services companies that is fully optimized for smartphones.
Sydney, Australia, September 04, 2014 -(PressReleasePointt)- Built for small to medium size businesses, Avaza.com has modules for project management & collaboration, timesheets, expense management & invoicing. Each of these modules can be used together or independently to suit a wide range of businesses.
"Avaza is the easy software that helps you get work done, and get paid from anywhere." says co-founder Tim Kremer.
"Freelancers, consultants and professional services organizations today typically mix and match a variety of software from different companies to help run their business. Unfortunately these products suffer from weak integrations, leading to data duplication, manual data entry and poor reporting across business processes."
Avaza's suite solves these problems and provides a single integrated view of clients and projects, allowing businesses to make better decisions and free up time to focus on what they do best says Mr. Kremer.
"Avaza brings new functionality to smaller businesses usually only found in large enterprise software and unaffordable to most companies.
For example, reporting on KPI's such as customer profitability & employee utilization is invaluable for improving the profitability of consulting companies."
Built in the cloud, and embracing modern technologies, all of Avaza's functionality is designed to be accessible from desktops, tablets & mobiles.
Cloud Accounting features include multicurrency expense tracking, invoice delivery & online payments.
Innovations in the project management space include the merging of project management & collaboration functionality.
"So many client interactions today are still via email. Email is fantastic for crossing organizational boundaries, however a lot of valuable knowledge often gets lost & forgotten in individual inboxes," says fellow co-founder Behram Khan.
Addressing these issues, every task in Avaza includes email-enabled discussions. Team members and clients are alerted via email when tasks are assigned or discussed. Users can reply directly to emails and add attachments. Responses are centrally tracked against tasks and searchable.
Automatic reminders on overdue tasks help keep engagements on track and are a diplomatic approach when following up on information requests.
"Many consulting industries we surveyed, such as accountants, spend up to 15% of their time following up with clients on information requests. With Avaza's automatic reminders, projects are delivered sooner and clients are happier." says Mr. Khan.
Avaza's target customers include professional services companies such as Accountants, Lawyers, Architects, Management Consultants, Web Agencies, Designers, Software consultants & Freelancers.
