If you manage a small or medium business, keeping on top of your company’s performance is paramount, and you don’t always have time to log on to your computer to check how things are going.
KPI Alerts allows you to send data from a range of sources via email, online shop sales or through plugins with tools such as Google Analytics. Once your KPIs are set up, the app will alert you if anything needs your attention.

It’s frustrating when you realise the document you desperately need is on your laptop and you only have your tablet.

It makes it easy to see who made which edits and when. It auto-saves too, so you don’t have to worry about that I’ve-not-pressed-save-for-an-hour panic.
