The Small Business Assistant
The Small Business Assistant is a piece of software whose main function is to simplify the work of business managers by offering them a variety of templates for the most relevant documents, such as policies, budget forms, job descriptions, etc.
Following an uneventful installation process, users can launch the application and begin working with it. It features a tabbed interface, with multiple sections, each addressing a specific business area, namely: 'Company Data', 'Employee Data', 'Information Advisor' as well as 'Tools and Program Info'.
In the 'Company Data' tab, users can access several subsections featuring files and templates for 'Agreements', 'Policies', 'Job Descriptions', 'Company Budget Forms', 'Company To-Do List', 'Company Disaster Recovery Plan', comprising numerous entries, like 'Business License', 'Fax Cover Sheet', 'Vacation Request Forms' and more.
The 'Employee Data' section features templates for 'Employee Disciplinary Actions', 'Employee Documents', 'Employee Evaluations', 'Employee Sick Leave Tracker' or 'Employee Vacation Tracker', enabling users to develop the existing files and adjust them to suit their own requirements.
From the 'Information Advisor' tab, users can learn about the several types of companies, for instance 'Cooperative', 'Cooperation', 'Limited Liability Company', 'Partnership', or 'Sole Proprietorship'. Additionally, it features various Federal Government and State websites that can prove useful for startup businesses.
The 'Tools And Program Info' section of The Small Business Assistant allows users to add records using the 'Business Contacts Entry Forms' as well as view them in the 'Business Contacts Display'. Other components include the 'Calendar Developer' and the 'Daily Planner Function', so managers can carefully schedule their activities and make sure they complete all the important tasks.
To conclude, The Small Business Assistant is a handy utility designed to help the managers and owners of small-sized companies conduct their administrative duties with more efficiency, by building on the numerous templates of important business documents rather than create them from scratch.
