With the sheer number of apps and other platforms available to help business owners and professionals manage different aspects of their business, it can be very easy to get overwhelmed by constantly switching back and forth and updating data on different platforms.
Salesforce’s Do.com aims to help solve this problem by integrating with several different types of productivity apps and services, so that they can all be controlled and tracked in one central location.
The app has just added several platforms to its list of integrations, which now includes Dropbox, Google Drive, Salesforce’s customer support system Desk, time management app Harvest, contact management system Contactually, and online forms service Wufoo.
With Do More, Do hopes to become a central hub for workers to manage their projects on all these different platforms, helping them access and update data in real time.
These integrations can benefit small business users by simply saving time on updating multiple apps. For example, when a user shares a Dropbox file with another user, that person is automatically added to the file in Do as well. The photo above shows how users can view and share their Dropbox documents from their Do dashboard.
So if a company uses one app for accounting, one for customer relations, one for managing contacts, one for sending documents, and one for every other business function, finding a way to merge and centralize all these accounts can certainly cut down on a lot of time and energy. And Do said that the apps it chose to integrate with were specifically requested by users so that they would be most likely to be useful for them.
Other features of Do include organizing and tracking project progress, note taking, task lists, conversations, reminders and more.
Accounts are free for individuals, but collaboration accounts start at $15 for three people. Do also offers iPhone and Android apps for mobile users.
Do first launched in November 2011 and nearly 100,000 businesses to date have signed up to use its service.
