As ever, we have tested the solution in pretty much the best way know how - we ran our own business on it for the last few months. We have to say, the entire experience can only be described as truly online-tening!
For those who haven’t figured it out yet, running a business isn’t all closing deals and running up huge tabs on the boss’s credit card, down the local bar after work. Most of it, is totally, incredibly dull. Does your ledger balance out? Have you sent out that invoice payment reminder? Hows your P&L looking? What about cashflow?

But look at bit closer, and you will find that there is something quite fresh, clever & unique about the Moobiz offering that makes it stand out from every other system that we have come across before, and we’ve used quite a few.
The first thing that makes Moobiz stand out is the extremely clean design interface. In fact - it’s so clean that if you happened to stick your thumb over the Moobiz logo - you’d be forgiven for thinking this was something Steve Jobs might be introducing as... [more]
