SixCentral Update

So it’s been a few days since I posted the big news about my first acquisition. The last few days I’ve been lost in emails, tweets, and survey results.

At this point I have two proposal SaaS based apps that focus on designers. Obviously lots of overlap and I’m not going to be able to keep every part of both of these apps.

All of my research has led me to these conclusions about SixCentral:

  • Users are disappointed in the lack of proposal features.
  • Some people like invoicing built in, others would prefer integration to apps like Freshbooks.
  • Client portal is a great feature.
  • Users are disappointed in the lack of proposal features.

I repeated the lack of proposal features item twice because it’s the one most people are talking about. This is exactly where Bidsketch shines, so I’ve decided to move forward with Bidsketch as version 2 of SixCentral. I’m going to add some of the missing SixCentral features into Bidsketch to give users the best of both apps.

My decision was based on the fact that the proposal creation features that people want took a very long time to build into Bidsketch. It’s much easier (and faster) to add invoicing and a client portal to Bidsketch.

Which brand will I be using? Not sure right now. I still have some more thinking to do but I’ll post an update once I’ve decided.

In the meantime I’ll be focusing on getting ready for the official Bidsketch pre-launch! 🙂
