Full Slate Unlocks Operating Data to Make Tax Preparation Easier for Small Businesses
Appointment History From Online Scheduling Software Lets Businesses Track and Export Data Effortlessly, Saving Valuable Time Otherwise Spent Manually Compiling Records
March 15, 2012 --
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/15/12 -- With Tax Day right around the corner, Full Slate, an online appointment scheduling company, today announced an easy to use reporting tool designed specifically to give small businesses greater access to their operating data than ever before.
Through a straightforward process, businesses using Full Slate's appointment scheduling software can download and analyze information in just a few clicks -- whether looking up recent activity for billing or downloading the full year of records for 2011 tax reporting due April 18th.
Angela Diane Bishop of Angie's Therapeutic Massage and Bowenwork, lauds such capabilities, "Full Slate is like having an assistant," she said. "Before I started using its online scheduling software, I had to manually count up my appointments for the year from my paper calendar. This is so much faster. With Full Slate, all I have to do is export the data into an Excel file and I have virtually everything I need for tax purposes. Time is money, and this capability from Full Slate saves me both."
For many service-oriented businesses, every detail of importance (client, service rendered, provider, price, no-show status, etc.) is captured on their appointment calendars. Full Slate makes it easy for businesses to extract that information in a format that can be readily analyzed and provide valuable insight into performance. Whether interested in identifying the most active clients, for example, which services are most popular, or which employees generate the most revenue, business owners can use the data provided by Full Slate to make informed decisions regarding their operations.
"Every aspect of our appointment scheduling software is designed with small business owners in mind and we understand that pulling together records for taxes can be stressful and time consuming," said Chris Korol, Vice President of Products at Full Slate. "We strive to provide technology that lessens the administrative burden on small businesses. Making it easy for them to access, export and analyze key operating data is just one way we do that."
Last month, Full Slate launched another feature to simplify back-office operations for small businesses: real-time, two-way synchronization with Google Calendar. That was the single feature most requested by customers of the online scheduling company, as many small businesses rely on it to keep various devices (including computers, tablets and phones) connected. Full Slate plans to roll out other new features based on customer feedback, including schedule optimization and class scheduling, later this quarter.
