The expenses app market has been around for a while now and there are a few established solutions like Expensify. Frankly I really don’t want to have to launch an App and record details of the expense so I like the idea of being able to email the receipt with a tag and have the app auto-categorise the expense.
I thought the pitch supplied below was a little off beat, humour and analogies rarely translate well in business writing and often confuse the reader leading them off on the wrong path, stay focused people.
|What problem are you solving?||Running a small business is already hard enough. Nobody who puts themselves through that much hard work and spends that much time on chasing their dream and paying their bills wants to have the receipts for those bills suddenly disappear on them because they left the window open during a storm.Conversely, there are already plenty of apps out there that target bigger businesses and help employees deliver expense reports. These systems can work for saving and organizing receipts for small businesses, but it’s like Cinderella’s sisters trying to force their feet into the glass slipper. You can jam yourself in there, but it’s uncomfortable and you run the risk of seriously hurting yourself. |

|Tell us about the market & founders, why is this a great opportunity?||Right now, it’s a one-man show, or if you’re into bad puns, a one-Dan show. I’m Dan Hulton, and I’m in charge around here.I’ve been programming and developing web apps for well over a dozen years now, with a focus on clean, maintainable code that makes it easy to quickly respond to client requests and market focus.I’ve also spent plenty of time in the front lines of customer service, which means I know exactly how you feel when something doesn’t work right. I’ve experienced the righteous anger of a customer burned by a bad product. I work tirelessly to ensure that something like that doesn’t happen in the first place, and when something inevitably does happen, that I’m on top of it as fast as possible.|
|Founders Names||Dan Hulton|
