Intuit | June 30, 2022
On July 5, Intuit QuickBooks will launch a new campaign to encourage Latino business owners to think like a "negocito" — a small business — and instead focus on the tools that will help them become a "negociote," with a big business mindset. Intuit, the global technology platform that produces QuickBooks, TurboTax, Mint, Credit Karma, and Mailchimp, will feature soccer legend Javier "Chicharito" Hernández in a new commercial. The commercial and campaign aim to reach both English- and Spanish-speaking Latino-owned small businesses, who are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States, having grown by 34% in the last decade.
Chicharito has become a cultural icon in many Latino communities due to his achievements on the soccer field. Chicharito embodies what it means to work hard and achieve great things.
Access to private funding is one of the most significant barriers that Latino small businesses face. Businesses can use QuickBooks to automate and streamline their financial processes, pay employees, get paid quickly, and gain access to capital.
Almost 60% of QuickBooks Capital customers would not have qualified for a loan anywhere else. Furthermore, entrepreneurs who applied through QuickBooks Capital saw a threefold increase in approval rates.
“The rapid growth of Latino-owned small businesses has accelerated our efforts to drive more awareness of our financial tools, Knowing the many challenges that they are facing on a daily basis, we believe that it’s a critical time for QuickBooks to be a partner to Latino entrepreneurs and help them prosper.”
-Dan McCarthy, senior vice president and chief business officer at Intuit
OneDirectory | June 29, 2022
OneDirectory, a leading software-as-a-service provider of modern employee directory software, announced the launch of its new employee directory pricing offer for small businesses.
Since 2010, OneDirectory has helped over 500 businesses implement employee directory solutions to better connect their people and offices.Traditionally, OneDirectory has served larger businesses but with recent shifts to remote and hybrid work, even the smallest of businesses are needing a tool to bring their employees together.
"Over the past year we've had an increase in smaller businesses reaching out and trialing our product,These are businesses with 100 employees or less that have wanted our product but our pricing plans have remained a roadblock."
-Lawrence Cawood, CEO at OneDirectory
To solve this OneDirectory created a new pricing plan to help smaller businesses gain the benefits of an enterprise employee directory solution.
The new small business plan is $79 per month for businesses up to 100 employees, which is a saving of 68% on the previous lowest plan. OneDirectory's other pricing plans range from $249 to $2,000+ per month.
"When tackling the SMB market many software providers reduce features and options for their smaller customers, So we've decided not to remove any product features from our new plan for small businesses."
-Greg Bennett, Head of Marketing at OneDirectory
When it comes to employee directories many small businesses have the same requirements as larger businesses, so OneDirectory made sure that their small business plan included all the following features: employee profiles, people search, office directory, skills directory, and org chart.
We're excited to bring our software to smaller businesses and see the impact it will have on employee collaboration and engagement, says Cawood. Businesses of all sizes are struggling to connect their employees, especially as hybrid and remote work is becoming the norm. At OneDirectory, we remain focused on solving this problem with our modern employee directory platform.
OneDirectory has six pricing plans tailored for different-sized businesses. The new plans are currently in effect as of 20th June 2022. The new pricing plans can be found here: https://www.onedirectory.com/pricing.
