My client is a trade who is growing his business. At the moment, there is his admin team (his wife) and he has 3-4 sub contractors. They are a young and vibrant team with lots of drive. He and his subbies want to be able to access their database via FMGo on iPad and admin will work from their home office on a MacBook (at the moment). Their budget is, given it is a small family business trying to grow, very small. Their foresight is fantastic, being prepared to invest in their growth and have an application that will cater to all their needs (ultimately) but for the moment increase they want to increase their productivity with regard to client management, quoting and monitoring won jobs with a view to increasing the functionality as they grow the business. Simple stuff really.
What I'd like to know is what people think should be their start up equipment and set up? What would you recommend and why?
