Getting Software Tools to Work Together

For years, many small firms have been leaning on low-cost online programs to handle jobs like inventory, accounting and payment processing.

We're so glad we found Stitch! It's not hard to learn and keeps our inventory straight, which keeps us from having to worry!

But many online sellers have a brick and mortar storefront, with internet sales added to the mix.

Dylan’s Desk: How I learned to stop worrying and love “the cloud”

As I write, the VentureBeat offices sit enveloped by a cloud. In all directions, the fog wraps our office building in a soft, gray fuzz, obscuring the views of downtown San Francisco, the bay, and the ocean.
