Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events!
In some work environments, employees live and breathe within their email inboxes. They use multiple apps or platforms to stay organized, and it becomes overwhelming. Well no more!Streak was created to integrate all the tools you need to manage relations within your work environment. Here at ABCey, some of our favorite features are email snooze, thread splitter, send later, and CRM for Dealflow!
Clean up your email inbox by using the email snooze feature! We’re not letting your emails rest forever. Sometimes we have emails just sitting around waiting for a reply. To the eye, an email sitting around confuses you of your priorities. So let your emails go on “snooze” and it’ll pop back up later! In case your client is emailing you a list of items that they need or want, you won’t need to hear each and every notification. Hint: You can adjust the scheduled time.
Need to send the same thing to several people at once? Skip the copy and paste and just check each person off. A great example of this would be sending any pricing information or venue spaces to potential clients. Also no need to individually look for each email to send to about the information. Streak already does that for you!
Plan your emails ahead! With “send later”, emails are able to be scheduled on a specific date and time. Just sit back, relax, and know that you’ve got your emails handled since your emails will automatically send. This is especially useful when trying to contact clients at certain times of if an email needs to be sent at a certain time!
In streak, they have what you call a pipeline. A pipeline contains all of the categories holding various types of coversations in your inbox (Ex below. Lead, Met With, Pitched, Team Sheet). All your emails are now in one and no need to switch from tab to tab. Event Planners are able to have their organizing pet peeves satisfied and everything is labeled and ready. With Streak, share emails easily, stay in touch effortlessly, and keep your leads warm for potential clients. You can also replace your external spreadsheets as well as highlight important deals with the CRM function of Streak.
With Streak’s flexible structure, it is definitely a multi-purposeful, google integrated service that is easy on IT. Streak helps to promote simple collaboration and is based in cloud. There’s no need to worry about data getting lost!

In light of a lot of recent difficult press, ABCey still has high hopes that Zenefits can overcome these growing pains! Zenefits is working to bring attention to what has made their products so appealing in the first place: Shopping for health insurance is really frustrating!! As a business owner, what do you use to organize your employees health insurance, payroll, FSA, 401k, and other HR tasks? Are you spending lots of money in your HR department or doing these tedious tasks yourself? Look no further, Zenefits can help solve your problem.
How it works:
Although Zenefits mostly focuses on health insurance, this software is used by more than 20,000 businesses to streamline HR systems. Instead of using multiple different programs for tracking employees health insurance, payroll, 401k, FSA, contractors, etc., this startup helps small businesses by bundling all of these systems into one easy to use software.
With this platform, you are able to track:
- HR Management
- ACA Compliance
- Time & Attendance
- and more!
Why we love it:
Zenefits has great benefits! It is an all in one platform that makes managing administrative tasks a breeze. The program is easy to set up, eliminates tedious paperwork and the costs of hiring HR employees! We also love the changes that Zenefits is making including a new CEO, who is determined to change the company in a drastic way. Like Zappos, they have recently scaled down their employees to ensure that everyone is 100% invested in the company. With the new direction their company is taking, Zenefits has a bright future!
