An ex-wall street consultant, a deli owner across the corner and the neighborhood grocery all have something in common. They are small and they need simple ways to scale their businesses. For the first time they can have free lunch.
If you are a small business, you can run a free website on Wordpress, manage customer service through twitter, promote yourself through FaceBook, print invoices, manage customers and hire through Zoho. But while you do that, you stay away from serving those hot bagels or equally hot stock tips to your customers.
TechAffinity can help you manage the complexity. We design websites, integrate them with social apps, run campaigns and send text messages for your customers. When you want to grow, we could do cooler things like setup your CRM, manage your website upgrades, build your inventory systems and more.
We are technologists and good fellas rolled into one. We could help with technology gigs so that you can change the world or your neighborhood.
Talking about changing the world, we work with valley startups, product firms and technology poster boys. We build iPhone apps, opensource based products and maintain your high traffic applications and product developments, so that you could raise your series-x funding without bringing your company to a halt.
These are good times if you are a small business owner. Marketing is democratized. ‘Word of mouth’ could be measured and oriented. Enter the days of Likes, Feeds, Tweets and Badges.
It’s one thing to hop onto social media technologies and its another to sustain & thrive in the noise. TAG has been there with old media houses & helped them embrace technology. We can do that for you, so that it doesn’t get all overwhelming!
Over a virtual cup of coffee, we could iterate on what you need, what your customers need and then code the hell out to build, consistently maintain & constantly evolve your web presence.
We build websites, products and widgets for the web and the mobile, when you are just up and running. When you transform to an enterprise, we can build your IT systems for recruitment, sales, customer relationship, fulfillment and more.
We love open source. In translation it means “We bring you the best in class. We bring’em cheap”. We treat other technologies like Mainframes and Microsoft with dignity. We go well with them too, as some of our big boy customers love them.
What a small business needs from IT can be articulated in 3 ways
- I don’t want to re-invent the wheel
- I want it on autopilot
- I want it to be cheap
Once in a while we’ve had startups that want to build that next big thing in the web and mobile. We have obliged.
TechAffinity has listened to several like you, in the past and we think
- Open source is good for websites and there are tools for most things a small business does. (We can stitch them together)
- We could build, maintain, evolve and manage web presence, while you manage your business
- Good code lasts for long. That which lasts for long costs less in the long run
For those startups, we get down to the trenches like a co-founder, to help decide build vs. buy, open source vs. proprietary tech, cloud vs. traditional, php vs. ruby, desktop vs. mobile. For startups and small businesses, we tell the good from the evil on every aspect of technology management and actually implement these decisions hands-on.
