I started with a simple file list. I am self employed and working on different jobs for several clients. I needed a list of my files and jobs to keep track of everything.
Then I implemented a task-list, a bit GTD style but personalized, because on every other app I had to recreate all the jobs I'm working on. On Ninox I had them already available. It was easy to link the tasks to the file-list (job-list).
To keep track of the time I work on projects, I used another app. But there I had to create all my jobs again, so I decided to do this with Ninox as well. This was a bit more difficult, but I already had some experience, so all went well. And now it is even better than on the app I used before.
After that, I decided to link my outgoing and incoming invoices to Ninox as well. That way I can link them to the jobs, tasks and my timings.
A few months ago, I employed someone and I created a team, so I can keep track of his working hours as well.
Last month I showed this database and the possibilities to a friend, who also has a business of his own. He was very interested in my approach. In a few clicks we made the database work for his company as well. We created a new team and within one single day he was up and running ! Now he wonders how he worked before he had this.
A week ago a new team was added and a third company now uses my solution.
So, my simple file-list now covers the whole business proces thanks to Ninox !
And it does not work just for me, others can benefit from it as well. So all the efforts I put into it, start to pay off. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
