Javelin saving the UK millions during big snow

This blog post was written before Javelin was renamed to Capsule. See this post for more details.

Here in the UK we’ve had the worst snow in decades according to the minute by minute news reports. Apparently the place has been bought to a standstill. According to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), lost employee productivity could cost the UK £600m per day.

The bad news for our Javelin users is there is no excuses for an extended holiday since Javelin can be accessed from anywhere you have an internet connection. As tweeted by one of our users, “Hmmmm, I think I’ll work from home today using #googleapps, Javelin CRM & Xero”.

So while it might be a stretch to say Javelin is making the whole of the UK more productive!, businesses using cloud applications like Javelin, Google Apps and Xero have a much better chance of remaining productive if staff can continue to access the systems they rely on.

For any businesses out there still using traditional software instead of cloud applications, here’s an incentive for you to convert to Javelin. This week only get 25% off your first 3 months by signing up with discount code BIGSNOW.
