"I can run my business from anywhere in the world."
"The Harvest guys have helped me to be as hands-off as possible when it comes to finance. They were instrumental in advising what entity to register and helping get Xero (and later our integration with TradeGecko) set up. Coming off the back of meeting with accountants that tried to sell me a million services I didn't need, Matt and Bryan listened to my business needs and provided the solutions I needed to launch. They were willing to work with a tiny startup and also able to grow with us and we realise lofty ambitions.
None of this would have been possible if I was still poking around in spreadsheets for accounting and inventory control. Software solutions for accounting and inventory are nothing new, but the advent of subscription based cloud SaaS products means - and I know its a huge cliche - I can run my business from anywhere in the world, even on the tightest of budgets. I can scale with these services, starting with the smallest startup package and scaling up as needed. It is so obvious, but it has been absolutely vital to our success so far."
Ergo was founded with the sole purpose of bringing to market products that will help people from all walks of life to take another step towards sustainable living.
The first product, Stasher, was introduced to Tim by his wife. She was fed up with throwing away loads of plastic zip-loc bags each week after using them to pack snacks for their daughter. She found Stasher and never looked back.
Tim used his past 10 years expertise in helping bring products to market in Singapore. Stasher was kind on the environment and hugely useful for families - an obvious choice!
