Apps we use to automate stuff, so you don't have to do it.

We love doing cool stuff and don't like doing it alone

Our number one goal is to make sure we solve our clients’ challenges and do so with the best possible automated solutions.

Because we don’t know everything and definitely can’t do everything, we have partnered with like-minded people that have skills, experience and additional capacity so that we can take on projects we would not be able to do on our own.

We have found that, while there are thousands of apps available, there are category-leaders that we prefer to use (click here to see our ever-growing list).  Where possible we have registered with them to make sure we understand their offering and have their priority support when needed.

Like-minded organizations we are affiliated with:

What our clients are saying
  • review rating 5  Having no prior knowledge of managing a development project, Prettysim.pl and Cor took me by the hand and very patiently and professionally led me through the jungle of my project. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with them and even though we were on very different time zones, they stayed very flexible and responsive. The end product is elegant and simple given the fact that we had many limitations and restrictions. I am trying to find any excuse to work with them again!!!!

    thumb Patricio Suarez

    review rating 5  Innovative problem solvers! And committed to finding elegant, fit-for-purpose solutions that challenge conventional thinking where required. Highly responsive and quick turnaround while committed to delivering quality outcomes.

    thumb Hennie de Villiers
  • review rating 5  Cor helped us develop an end to end workflow and communication tool using existing tools already developed, but yet applying custom workflows that help our business run better. Even though we are in the U.S. and the company is based in South Africa, communication was excellent. Highly recommended!!

    thumb Eric Greene

We want to persistently deepen, widen, grow and expand our knowledge

looking for quicker easier ways to do proposals and project documentation?

tl;dr i am automating our own process using Miro (infinite whiteboard app) Integromat and googledocs

over the years i have developed my own mechanism of planning and designing automations and integrations. In essence its a rough mix of shingo value stream mapping, customer journey mapping and various project management essentials.

while it has helped me improve my designs and estimations, as well as reduced the time it takes to plan a project, i have received consistent feedback from customers and partners that its to complex and cumbersome for them to read and understand.

to fix this i have created an automation that will, at a click of a button, convert this diagram into a more traditional project proposal. this same automation will be used to populate our scheduling and project management tools once the project kicks off.

as mentioned, this is still work in progress so watch this space for future updates or speak to me about a proposal for your business to be the first to get a sneak peak 😉

please let me know in the comments what are some of the more tricky non-traditional things you would like to automate in your life or business?

#012 #How | I use @veem to receive international payments

tl;dr its @prettysimpl - most can use it, fixed cost, and integrated invoicing

why:
- accessible: i have not found a client that was not able or not willing to pay via this platform auckland to seattle
- simple: easy as signup, setup and send
- integrated: my #Xero invoice has a paynow link that takes the client direct to prepopulated veem payment screen

cost:
- me (receiver): $20 per payment fixed fee, my bank's international transfer processing fee (R180). still roughly R600($30) per payment but much less (and simpler) than @paypal through @fnb and any other alternatives i have tried.
- client (sender): nothing

process:
- me: send client invoice. then depending on your setup in @xero you can have veem appear as a bank/control account or you can reconcile invoice direct with payment in bank.
- client: click on link (register if not yet) and pay.

why not cypto - while cheaper(could even make a little through arbitrage) its hard to explain to clients, few trust it and its a mission to setup and manage.

why not wire - international wires can be complex and costly for both parties
