As technology continues to improve, it’s important to keep an eye on the new tools you can utilize to streamline the way you do business. Even if you don’t need these services right now, having an idea of what these tools are can decrease the headache you face when you need them later.

Botkeeper

This tool utilizes artificial intelligence to keep track of your books and accounting needs. This ambitious startup has a solid idea behind it and the support of some very influential tech companies. In just this year alone, the business has raised over $17 million from Gradient Ventures, Google’s very own AI investment firm.

Dialpad

Dialpad is the business internet phone for the 21st century. It can handle all your basic business phone needs including conference calls or call-center work over the internet through your desktop browser or mobile app. The product can fully integrate with popular enterprise applications like Slack, Zendesk, and Salesforce. The startup is also looking at adding AI features to the product/service soon as well.

Kolide

This cloud-based service analyzes your company’s Macs and PCs to find any security or physical repair needs. The company was founded by a group that previously developed a service to protect Linux, Windows, and Mac computers from hackers so they have a lot of potential. Almost all modern businesses rely on their computers, and this service can ensure you don’t have to worry about hackers compromising your business operations. 

These are just a few of the companies you should keep an eye on in the near future. If you have any interest in these companies and their services, I encourage you to look into them and find out how you can integrate them today to make for an easier tomorrow.
