The choice of business finance apps can be overwhelming. Where to start? In this article for business owners and finance leaders, I’ve rounded up five key considerations and offered tips on making the big decisions around product fit, realising value, security, vendors, and pricing.
Product fit is crucial. A new app must meet the needs of all stakeholders within your business, so ask what the criteria for any new app are:
Our Joiin app solves the difficult task of producing consolidated reports. It does what it says on the tin and helps over 32,000 companies with their group reporting needs.
You’ve identified some apps, but do they deliver what they say and the added value your team requires? What you’re looking for is an aha moment. And essential to achieving one is the ability to dive in with a free trial – your one early chance to see and experience an app’s added value for yourself; the aha moment is when an app’s capabilities shine brightly (aha!).
With our Joiin app, the average time to realise its value is around 7 minutes from connecting to running a first consolidated group report.

When assessing apps at Joiin, as well as Fit, Value and Security (as above), we also use these factors to determine the fitness of vendors:
Thinking innovatively, many of today’s app vendors realise they can do without complex pre-sales, sales, and onboarding layers. Therefore, they offer much lower pricing, making purchasing far more accessible. And because their primary focus is on an app being easy to use and intuitive, they have found they can operate successfully with much smaller teams (with fewer overheads to cover in the price). That’s something to be aware of as you shop around.
