The Private Business Platform

Coinr The Private Business Platform is coming.

Owners and other stakeholders in all small and medium businesses rejoice!

Our vision for coinr was always to provide hundreds (if not thousands!) of useful information services for you and your business in an easy integrated way so time-poor business owners can get on with innovating while we handle all your information systems needs with minimal or zero customisation.

Lots of people out there provide e-commerce software and basic accounting software but we are aiming for the stars, a simple to use yet comprehensive platform in one website that handles your specific needs with a simple ‘click-to-customise’ approach you can be up and running in minutes then gets better suited to your needs every day.

We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, so coinr will integrate over time with your popular services.

Realistically such a huge range of services takes time to build and integrate smoothly, so we didn’t expect to be telling you about this for some time, probably not until mid 2013. But we are (a little) ahead of schedule.

Already we have twenty core services all with responsive design so they work on mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktops.

Some of the core services we have developed provide messaging, authentication, third party authentication, security layers, page publishing, analytics, short links with a/b testing, payments, anonymous social connection, notes, geo location, contacts, info snippets and a lot more.

We are just starting to pilot these services with wholesale customers. They are all medium size businesses or small businesses that aspire to be medium sized or even large one day. You can see our own internal pilot program using some of these services (which many people thought was a core product but really it is our first ‘retail demo app’ we call the coinr box web app.

A web app works on all devices and looks like an app, you can even easily add an icon to your phone’s home screen, but you don’t need to go to the app store or app market place to download it, just browse to the coinrbox.com site.

So small and medium businesses can soon rejoice, we expect to have some more services and apps out soon.

Get Attached Yet Remain Independent

So you want to store a picture on Coinr Box? Just use #file (or tap the camera icon or drag and drop).

Perhaps it is a picture of an expense receipt.

Maybe it is a product picture from a competitor you want to share with colleagues and publish with a short link and analytics and social marketing tools.

Perhaps it is a marketing campaign idea or a new creative idea for a store you have just opened?

Just drag it onto the browser when you are making a coin drop (go to coinr.com/add) and type a little bit of text then drag on the image.

For example –

#expense $25 lunch with @dan

Then drag and drop an image on to your browser (before you hit save) and it will look like this

#expense $25 lunch with @dan #file receipt_image.png

The above creates a private purchase transaction in your accounting system (e.g. saasu) and a contact (if it doesn’t already exist) and pushes the image to your drop box.

Or to make it public just add #public to make something like this very high resolution image that some find a little humorous – https://www.coinr.com/public/3Ikykpax0p

Don’t forget you do need to have at least a free dropbox account plus maybe an account at saasu for your accounting and setup credentials at coinr.com/credentials

How It Works

Coinr is still in the very early stages of development but it is already very useful. It works similar to twitter or google search but with some smart differences.

Instead of making a tweet on twitter you add coin drops on coinr.com into what looks like a simple text box.

Just like in real life, you wouldn’t walk down the street dropping money as you go, so don’t drop your information, keep it safe in coinr.

Much of the information you have every day is valuable, so drop it into the coinr box and we will make it even more valuable for you by organising it and intelligently linking it to hundreds of the best services on the web.

Maybe that information is a little #idea you want to remember to explore further, or a task #todo sometime, or an #expense you need to claim for work or personal tax or maybe a startup business, or perhaps it is that #book you want to remember #tobuy online or at the shops or something you need to get @ikea next time. Maybe it is #feedback to @coinr about a new service you would like added or you are logging your #fuel consumption or a personal #journal or a #restaurant recommendation.

The list is endless.

Coinr is a simple little box but it uses advanced technologies to work offline and online on iphone, android, ipad, tablets, macs and PCs and it sync securely across all your devices.

If google is the easiest way to search, coinr is the easiest way to save. Save money, save time, save relationships and save your quality of life.

Instead of using one set of apps for your day job, another set of apps for your personal life and maybe another set of apps for your hobbies or startup businesses, coinr gives you one simple box that takes instructions from you and gives you useful and often very smart help in return. Perhaps it is a forecast on your restaurant expenses or a #map of all those cool little back alley pop-up bars. Maybe it is #feedback to the government about that pothole at the end of the street or a two for one promotional #deal from your business you want to offer to local students @university and #nearby.

You can travel without internet access and capture weeks worth of expenses, todos, meeting minutes, contacts, receipts, etc and sync when you get back online.

Coinr will push your transactions to your accounting systems, your files to drop box, and other things to the right place too.

Remember coinr is just like twitter or google, you just type in the box (or speak in some devices) except coinr is –

  • ultra private for example you can connect with suppliers, customers, tem members, prospects etc without disclosing personal information
  • ultra personal for example use the language you prefer such as @pete rather than @pete_on_twitter_46

We find new uses for coinr every day, we hope you do too. Coinr is getting connected to more web services every month so make sure you tell us what you would like to see.
