Frequently Asked Questions
Why do businesses partner with Feature Power?
Many of our clients are small to medium-sized businesses who are looking for trusted, expert advice on how to maximise the potential of their investment in cloud-based software.
Cloud-based software products – for example Asana, Insightly, Airtable and others – promise to solve persistent business challenges around communication, customer relationship management, database management, administrative processes and more.
Yet once you’ve chosen and invested in a cloud-based software product, applying its full functionality to your unique business environment often presents a secondary challenge all of its own.
For a start, understanding how the product works can be harder than anticipated (even after watching all those Help videos and doing lots of Googling for answers!) Then, designing processes and staying up to date with new product features can take up more time that the average business owner has available!
This is where Feature Power steps in. We complement in-depth understanding of popular cloud-based software products with decades of expertise in the design and implementation of business systems and processes. We use a practical approach to help Australian businesses leverage cloud-based software and derive the benefits it promises – without the hefty price tag.
Whether it’s Basecamp, Asana, Insightly, Zapier, Airtable or another product entirely, Feature Power knows that not every business has the resources to employ a dedicated business software specialist. Instead, we offer expert knowledge and advice about popular cloud-based software products, at an affordable price.
What does the Feature Power free, no obligation consultation involve?
Feature Power offers a free, 45 minute consultation to any business looking for help to realise the full potential of their cloud-based software – for example Insightly, Asana, Progress Street, Mail Chimp or Basecamp. This consultation may be conducted via phone or Skype.
During this consultation we aim to understand your current business objectives, learn how you are using cloud-based software products and explore any challenges you may be experiencing.
We then aim to provide you with actionable tips, information and advice to help you improve your results using your cloud-based software products.
There is no fee for any advice or information provided during this session and no obligation to enter into any agreement with Feature Power upon the completion of the consultation.
How does Feature Power work with clients?
The short answer to this question is: collaboratively.
Feature Power is more than a source of reliable, actionable cloud-based software advice. We truly partner with our clients to help them realise tangible business benefits through effective use of their chosen platform.
Our client relationships typically start with a free, no obligation consultation (this takes around 45 minutes). After this, if you feel we can help you get more from your cloud-based software, we typically agree on a business outcome goal, with a one month completion timeframe. During this time we will work on addressing your cloud-based software needs, collaborating with you via weekly screen share reviews to ensure the design and implementation of your software solutions is absolutely spot-on.
At the conclusion of this month, in most cases we will have solved your most pressing need. From that point on, we can continue working with you should you require further assistance – with other cloud-based software products for example.
How do I engage Feature Power to help me improve my business processes?
Step 1: Book a free, no obligation consultation with Feature Power. Explain your business needs and current challenges with your selected cloud-based software products. We’ll suggest possible solutions and improvements on the spot!
Step 2: If you decide that you would like to build on the advice offered in our free consultation, Feature Power will work with you to determine your goals and address these within a one month timeframe. Weekly progress reviews will ensure your project is on track and your vision for your cloud-based software is becoming a reality.
Step 3: Feature Power works with many businesses over the long term. Once we get to know your business, we can help you use cloud-based software to devise and implement sophisticated improvements to systems and processes, impacting both effectiveness and profitability.

Does Feature Power work with businesses all over Australia?
Yes. Feature Power is an Australian business based in Melbourne. We deliver cloud-based software and business support to organisations all over Australia. As our services are delivered via highly effective online screen share sessions (using Skype, for example), location is rarely a factor!
