So many new businesses are entirely based online, and while this make some elements of running a business much easier, there are some troubles that come with this online territory.
The lack of a face-to-face presence is one such issue, meaning online businesses need all the help they can get in ensuring their service is as professional as possible.

How has KashFlow helped?
Dreamcraft Furniture’s Jenny Wilson says the company’s growth meant that their invoicing and receipts were all over the place until they started using KashFlow. Since then, they’ve been able to add real professionalism to what they do, keep the orders in check (even from their phones) and focus on their continued success.
“Our business has been able to grow because of KashFlow for several reasons. We are now able to create customer profiles and email newsletters to our customers.
