According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 5.4 million new business applications were filed in 2021, surpassing the 2020 record of 4.4 million.

Weave Introduces New Features to Assist Small Businesses in Streamlining Customer Onboarding

Weave | May 18, 2021

Weave, an all-in-one customer communications platform for small businesses, has announced the release of two new products designed to make it simpler and quicker for businesses to add new customers. Weave users, both new and existing, will now use Digital Forms and Web Assistant. The new additions make it easier for small businesses to schedule appointments and gather necessary information, creating a modern experience for the office and their clients from the first conversation to the first appointment. Digital Forms are entirely personalized, paperless forms that customers and patients can complete at their convenience and on their preferred device, modernizing small business operations while improving the customer experience. Forms are simple to construct and design, and the company owner and staff can monitor when forms have been completed and follow up with patients and customers by text or email. Web Assistant presents a new and pain-free alternative to web chat into the Weave unified communications ecosystem, assisting new and existing customers in scheduling appointments or obtaining personalized responses to fast questions or though the office is busy or closed for the day. The customer can easily request an appointment, and they don't have to think about waiting at their desktop with a tab open for a response or receiving an impersonal chatbot response. Weave's Text Connect tool takes a customer's name and phone number and generates an SMS conversation thread, enabling the busy customer and business owner to talk asynchronously and at their convenience. Customers can close their window and go on to the next thing on their to-do list, assured that they can get an actual response from a real person directly to their phone. The addition of Web Assistant and Digital Forms to Weave's all-in-one communication platform in 2021 is not the only one. With the introduction of Unify earlier this year, Weave extended its offerings to multi-office small businesses, enabling growing businesses to have meaningful customer interactions across various offices while streamlining internal operations and staffing. Weave's emphasis on supporting small business growth takes center stage this week at the free digital Business Growth Summit on May 19, where businesses can learn from comedian and actor Ken Jeong, YouTube phenom Lindsey Stirling, and Weave CEO Roy Banks about how to draw new customers.

Trainual Focuses on Small Business Success with the World's First Business Playbook Software

Trainual | September 30, 2021

Trainual , a leading SaaS platform that dramatically boosts small businesses' ability to scale through better onboarding and training, unveiled the world's first business playbook software yesterday during their first annual user conference.The major product upgrade now empowers small businesses to build their playbooks (or how-to guides for running their company) in the same way they naturally work every day. This includes easily documenting and sharing information about their company, people, policies, and processes - allowing small businesses to scale and grow in record time. These fundamentals were born out of Trainual founder Chris Ronzio's latest book: The Business Playbook. "As a small business owner myself, I've experienced firsthand the many challenges of onboarding, training, and scaling fast,To really help small businesses when it comes to transferring knowledge, we needed a product that matched exactly how they operate every day, especially when it comes to documenting processes and onboarding new hires. This next generation of Trainual is truly a reflection of that, of how people learn about a business in real life." -said Chris Ronzio, CEO and founder of Trainual. The all-new Trainual now consists of four key changes, each built specifically with small businesses in mind: New navigation - Trainual's new layout mimics how small businesses naturally operate daily - from a larger picture of their company to how individuals fit in and, finally, to exactly what teams need to know. The new navigation directly reflects this, saving time and ensuring a more organized experience. Org chart - The org chart feature gives an easy-to-digest, visual representation of where each team member fits into the company, who they report to, and who's on what team. Roles & responsibilities - This makes it easy to assign accountability to each team member, eliminates duplicate efforts by clearly showing who does what, and allows teams to link actual Trainual or website content to a responsibility. As a result, these features add a whole new level of context for other team members or new employees. Collections to organize content - Customers can now group their processes into individual categories called "Collections" by team, department, topic - whatever works! Additionally, Trainual launched a brand-new plan called "Build," specifically created and priced for small businesses with 5 employees or less. The company held its first-ever Insider Summit event yesterday, exclusively for Trainual customers, where attendees got a sneak peek at the all-new platform before it went live later that day. About Trainual: Trainual, the world's first business playbook software, transforms the way small businesses onboard, train, and scale their teams. With its affordable and easy-to-use platform, organizations can dramatically reduce the time it takes to get employees up to speed while making every need-to-know instantly accessible from anywhere in the world. Thousands of small businesses in over 180 countries build their business playbooks and grow their teams with Trainual.
