Business by Miles is a business automation platform that handles tasks like scheduling, human resources, billing, invoicing, project management, payroll and accounting in a single cloud-based system. Managing all of these tasks might require several different apps in another situation.
The platform is intended to keep your employees aware of everyone’s schedule, availability, ongoing projects and more. A small business with a single person at the helm can deal with different apps that help get more work done and organized. But that gets tougher with more employees.
In an interview with Small Business Trends, Miles Technologies CEO and Founder Chris Miles explains:
“One person can deal with disparaging systems. When a company gets larger, disparaging systems leads to efficiency loss.”
The cloud-based platform has several paid tiers available to businesses. Plans start at $49 per user. Miles says a business with 3 or more employees would benefit most from his company’s $99 per month per user plan.
The Business by Miles platform has been 17 years in the making. Miles’ company, based in Moorestown, N.J., started in 1997 creating custom software for businesses in all industries and of all sizes. It was three years ago when he and his staff began working on Business by Miles.
“What we’ve done for 17 years in business is we’ve analyzed a specific process and how we can make it better. It’s got all those things that make a person’s job easier to do.”
Miles believes what sets his product apart from others available to small business owners is an eCommerce hook for service professionals. Miles said that professionals like lawyers, architects, building contractors, and accountants, can use Business By Miles to accept payments from clients. This includes the ability to create and accept subscription payments or payment agreements with your clients. The platform features contract management, invoicing and payment portals.
Business by Miles is also fully optimized for a mobile user. It can be used on a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
