My experience

I have a passion to help out!

I have helpt a lot of startups who are facing growth problems when they start getting the success they tend to lack routines- There is just a lot of chaos because they are doing the right thing, selling!

I love to join such startups and find the right software for them to face their individual problems, many times a solid CRM system will be a great start.

If you have any problems, do not hesitate to reach out to me and we can work on a solution. I have been working on many different projects, you might face similar problems, here is some to mention.

Booking system

Booking system for an employment agency. They needed a system to improve their daily routines and a better platform to make sure they got their money.

Travel agency

A travel agency. A flight planner that will be looking for flight plans that fit you in the future could be you have friends in 5 different countries, and the planner could find the most efficient place you could meet up.

Mailing Cluster

A mailing cluster in which you can connect thousands of mailer agents to improve your mail delivery. It keeps track of your domains, open and click rates as well as revenue.

Timekeeper

A little in the same direction as the booking system, but with more focus on the employees they can track their usage by the customers, so the company can generate a final invoice to the customer, and the employees can report in their hourly usage.

Crawler

This is a crawler I use for my own projects, it is crawling prices from different webshops to make price comparing sites, but can be extended to news or the stock market as well.

Recurring payments

Built a system that has a database of products, that can be sold in any way. This system is integrated to many different payment providers and connected to a warehouse to ease the shipping process.
