1. Get a grip on your financials

Tech tool to get paid faster: QuickBooks

Every small business wants help managing money. With QuickBooks, you can easily create invoice, track cash flow, accept payments, and pay employees – all in one place. This helps business owners to stay organized, save time with automation, and more easily file taxes at the end of the year so you can focus on growing your business.

2. Simplify your business travel

Better trip planning tech: SAP Concur

Business travel is picking up during Small Business Month and beyond. With SAP Concur any business (of any size) can now more easily manage travel costs and increase savings. The SAP Concur mobile app makes it easy for employees to book flights, hotels, cars, or train trips. They can also see their itineraries; plus they can capture receipts and submit expenses on the go.

3. Save money on your office supplies

Ecommerce business deals: Amazon Business

In fact, throughout the month of October Amazon is offering new Amazon Business customers $150 off their first $300 with an Amazon business account. Offer available at

4. Stand out on social media

Social media design app for photos & videos: Canva
