Why 100% of Google Apps users will love wizy.io

No comments

At wizy.io, we believe that all Google Apps users should have access to basic productivity tools, at a price that every company in the world can afford.

Google Apps is such a popular suite of office tools that it is chosen by 95 percent of all startups worldwide. Millions of SMBs also use it, as well as numerous multinational companies like Lafarge Holcim, Roche, PWC, Veolia and Woolworth.

Still most companies, in addition to their Google Apps, need to subscribe to other business applications. There are CRMs for salespeople; email and blogging platforms for the marketing department; payroll solutions for HR; ERP for the accounting department; BPMs… the list goes on.

These products do not come cheap. While Google Apps cost just US$5 per user each month, a company can end up paying 100 times that amount for a business app. That’s as much as US$500 a month for one employee, or US$6,000 a year.

Being so expensive, these business apps are deployed only to 5 to 15 percent of an organization’s employees. The remaining 90 percent are left out in the cold. They may not need expensive applications, but they still need tools to boost their productivity.

entrepreneur-593358_1280This is why many SaaS companies have sprouted providing hyper-specialized services, but at a price that may not be affordable to everybody. Boomerang for Gmail, for example, charges a monthly US$15 per user for its Pro account. That gives you just a small set of functions – email scheduling, tracking, reminders, notes and recurring messages. Yesware’s Pro package is priced at a monthly US$12, but it doesn’t have much more to offer.

Our wizy.io package costs just US$5.90 per user each month. Yes, that’s 50 percent of Yesware’s price; and we offer more than 100 percent more of their services.

wizy.io gives you access to a collection of very useful add-ons and applications that range from the relatively simple, like email templates, email tracking, contact management and validation workflow, to the complex, like spreadsheet consolidation.

typing-849806_1280Because we aim to be accessible – from pricing to utilisation – we create products that work with the tools that professionals use most. That means email, spreadsheets, documents and social networks. As we function within Google Apps, we are always one click away. You do not need to open other applications. A major plus: Your work stays in Google Apps, so that your data is stored and protected by Google at all times.

Keep your spreadsheet versions safe with Version Freeze

No comments

Working in sales for a comic-book publishing company, Matt work on shared Google spreadsheets with his colleagues. He is generally at ease with collaboration, but he does sometimes worry about the fact that anybody with access to the sheet can change the data in it. He finds himself asking: What if something goes missing, or what if wrong information is filled in?

He wishes that his company would invest in a solution that offers access control to their spreadsheets, but so far that is not happening. They don’t have the budget for it, the finance people say.

Version Freeze will make Matt feel better. It’s a Google Sheets add-on that will allow him to save his version of a spreadsheet right in his own Drive. He names it and stores it safe in the folder he wants, in just a few clicks, and without leaving the spreadsheet. If later on, looking at the shared spreadsheet, he wants to verify some data, he runs Version Freeze again, this time to restore his saved version. He can make comparisons instantly.

No budget for it? No problem. Version Freeze is free.

Send bulk emails in 4 minutes with Power Contacts

Just Juice is a line of all-natural health drinks. Sales spike whenever they release their limited-edition new flavors, which marketing girl Philippa promotes partly by sending out sample bottles to influential people – store owners, athletes, celebrities and health writers – and then waiting for word-of-mouth to take effect.

sidebar outilsTheir Who’s Who list has around 150 addresses on it. Not very big, but substantial enough that it doesn’t make sense to send out emails one by one. With Just Juice’s business steadily growing, Philippa is a very busy girl. She needs to send out her emails to the list, telling them that they have packages on the way, quickly and easily. She doesn’t have the time to learn new software; even Mailchimp’s dashboard is too much for her.

Philippa will find her solution in Power Contacts, a Chrome extension that shows up as a sidebar in your Gmail inbox (see image at left). It does a great many things, like allowing you to manage your Google Contacts and giving you access to the social media activities of your contacts, but Philippa will appreciate its email functionalities.

With Power Contacts, she can send out the emails to her VIPS in the 4 minutes she has before the art director calls her to work on Just Juice’s holiday packaging. And she  can do it without leaving that familiar place, her Gmail inbox.

Time starts now…

  • Minute 1: Philippa choose to send email to the group Just Juice Friends from her Power Contacts home page.
  • Minute 2: When the email message box pops up, she chooses the saved template she had created beforehand.
  • Minute 3: Philippa clicks on Track so that she’ll know when her VIPs open her emails.
  • Minute 4: She clicks on Send Later and schedules her email to be sent on the weekend, when she knows most of her clients will be opening their inboxes on their downtime.

She’s done!

You, too, can start working better with Power Contacts by clicking here to install the add-on.
