I’ve been looking into various COST EFFECTIVE “project management” software applications for many months, trying to find a solution that would allow me to create project job tickets, generate invoices from the project tickets, show reports on paid / unpaid invoices, create proposals, estimates, etc.

I finally found a solution that I really dig and thought I’d share a link if any other small business owner is in search of such a platform for managing their projects.

Here’s something to think about and take into consideration.
An employee of Kaleidoscopic, Inc. has a relative who is in the graphic design business. While having lunch one day, she mentioned that her uncle had decided to outsource a project to a company based in India and when the project was returned, he was very pleased with the work and the fees incurred. I must admit it’s a strong argument for outsourcing overseas. But I looked at her and asked, “So should I call your uncle, ask for their phone number and fire you so I can save money?” She was a bit shocked and I told her to relax I wasn’t serious. However, I was trying to make a point to her, that the choice her uncle had made was in my opinion a bad choice for the long term growth of his business, the financial health of his local community and it’s actions such as his that have cost so many American jobs.

As a business owner – I believe it’s vital to keep business local and employ people in my community – Americans, who in-turn can afford to purchase more products and services from other local businesses, which in-turn may come to Kaleidoscopic, Inc. to help with their website development needs.

Simply put: What goes around – comes around!
