If you’re a saver, you know that no matter how inconsequential the amount may seem, money, time and resources are always worth saving. And whether it’s a business or a household you’re running, cost efficiency can help you go a long way. Such being the case, here are three online tools that can help you save more:
In most businesses these days, technology is defining the rules of the efficiency game. With the use of modern tools like intranets and CRMs, companies are ensured their most treasured possessions – their employees – are engaged, kept up to date, empowered and allowed the flexibility they deserve. Problem with these tools, they can be pricey, leaving the small businessman and the financially-challenged bootstrapper sitting on the sidelines.

With the advent of low-cost carriers and online ticketing outlets, air travel has become dramatically cheaper. But competition among these carriers is now so intense that a lot of them have chosen to confine their best and cheapest deals into their own corporate websites or partner third-party sites, instead of publishing them on price-comparison websites where they can potentially lose customers to competing airlines. In effect, the end consumer would have to spend time and effort hopping from airline site to flight site to find the airfare deal that suits him best.
JetRadar.com is a search engine that systematically searches through 728 individual airline sites and hundreds of flight and ticketing sites for the best and cheapest airfare deals out there, and makes the data available in a single portal for public utilization, radically cutting down on the time and effort it takes for a consumer to find the most economically attractive airfare offer. JetRadar.com is out to become the household name for the best and cheapest airfare offers in the market.
Nowadays, finding a name for your business is easier said than done. The name you choose for your business entails branding and advertising implications, which, therefore, calls for careful consideration.
