Today we've published the first preview version of our next tool, the Hours tool. Hours is designed for companies that want to give a super easy way for their employees to report their working hours. It also allows managers to lock time entries by approving them based on certain criteria, get a quick overview of the hour balance in their company.
"Bisnest is very simple to use, and it fits our needs perfectly. There's practically no learning curve, because everything is right where you expect it to be. We really love the modularity, which allows us to pick just the functionality that we want, and not pay for loads of stuff that we don't need," said Reeta Tammisto, CEO, Hoks Oy. "We've been waiting for something like Bisnest for a long time."
Bisnest is a simple and modular set of tools designed exclusively for small businesses. Bisnest is a multi-tenant web application that authenticates the users with the help of Azure AD, the user directory behind every Office 365 tenant. The web application runs in Azure as a website and uses an SQL Azure database for data storage. The user interface is completely responsive, so it works on a desktop as well as on a mobile phone without any additional apps to install.
As we've talked to a lot of small business owners over the last months, not just at our demo booth at Slush in Helsinki, we've learned that one of the things that make our customers love Bisnest is how we intend to sell Bisnest. Instead of wrapping a predefined set of functionality into a few subscription levels, as most of our competitors do, we allow our customers to select the features they want for each employee individually. This has turned into one of our value propositions: Pay only for what you use!
