Pros: The ease of use, yet still covering every aspect of business planning, presenting the user with very detailed tasks lists and measurable objectives.

Cons: No cons that myself or my team have discovered to date.

Overall: We started using Business Sorter a year ago. What we loved is seeing how this tool works for all levels of team members, from business development managers through to account managers. Its uniquely user friendly and certainly easy to use, yet don not be fooled. The actual outcome and depth of detail of the end result is astounding. I highly recommend Business Sorter, as its core principles and unique methodology will certainly suit multitudes of businesses around the world.

Pros: I've been business planning for clients for decades and I've seen nothing like this before.

This tool is absolutely amazing. It is so intuitive and it makes the whole process so easy.

It is jam-packed with tips and advice that takes experienced consultants decades to learn, all as part of the basic package for everyone to use.

From a professional business consultant and qualified Chartered Global Management Accountant to both professionals and to businesses, this is the tool for you.

If you are serious about beating the dropout stats and about growing your business into a big success, then you need Business Sorter. This software is life changing.

Cons: I wish I'd found it sooner. So many of my clients could have benefitted from this. They definitely will now.

Overall: I have completely streamlined and systemised the planning process by using the software. There are so many areas to cover in business planning and so many can easily be missed. This software guides you through them all and keeps you focused. It's great to prepare a plan but if it isn't properly implemented then what was the point. This software manages the user through the plan and the implementation process. Gives the mentor/manager complete transparency and allows them to gently nudge anyone who isn't meeting deadlines on individual tasks. This really has been so well thought out and is an amazing tool for planning.

Pros: its ease of use and outcomes it creates by having very simple implementation, which is based in well thought out strategy and tactical steps needed to ensure overall priorities are acheived.

Cons: Actually, I can't think of any. Clients love it, We love it.

Overall: As a specialist advisor in the business leadership area, we at Love to Grow are often on the lookout for excellent planning tools. We want to combine the best of technology with the best of advice so our clients achieve the results wanted. Our clients and also our own business has used business sorter with great outcomes. I would recommend it to any business owner or manager wanting to make their business planning highly effective and easy to implement.

Trish Love, CEO and founder, Love to Grow, Chartered Accountants and Business Leadership specialists.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is easy to use by oneself. However it is best utilised when an experienced business planner uses it with the business owner - to assist in understanding the application of some of the choices in the options suggested through the process

by Business Sorter on November 28, 2016

Pros: Business Sorter makes it very easy to facilitate planning sessions with clients, especially because so much content is already there to sort through which helps structure conversations. Super easy to use to create a plan and turn it into action.

Cons: Can't think of any, can only think of opportunities where it could add even more value in the future.

Pros: The winning feature of this tool is that you can formulate an incredibly comprehensive plan in a very short period of time. The creators clearly know their stuff when it comes to planning and this feeds through into every step of the plan building process. You come out with clear priorities and achievable actions. Love this tool!

Cons: We would love the ability to be able to link actions to our calendar so that we are able to track progress in terms of dates.

Overall: A great plan! Clearer priorities!

Vendor Response

by Business Sorter on June 30, 2018

We love hearing reviews like this! Thanks, Esther. As it happens, we had a number of people asking for the calendar functionality, and that has now been added on the plan page next to 'due date'. We hope it has enhanced your experience of using Business Sorter.

Pros: Business Sorter is quick and easy to use, all you need to do is follow the prompts from each core area when setting up your plan . You select the tasks which are the most relevant and important to your business, once selected you can elaborate and set tasks/goals for yourself and your team members. Business sorter helps me to prioritise and keep my business on track and focussed.

I have been using business sorter for over 2 years and last year had run multiple plans for the separate areas of our business to much success. My team enjoy working on business sorter and the results speak for themselves. Highly recommended

Overall: We have achieved our business goals and have exceeded our expected results

Pros: Easy to use and easy to understand outcomes.

Overall: Very easy to use but gives a really clear and in depth result in a short amount of time.

Made my planning process so much simpler than other formats I have used in the past.

The biggest result so far for me is one of my staff members has found a new lease on life because they have a clear list of steps to take on a regular schedule to drive results. Before we used this tool we were going around in circles and everyone was getting frustrated. Now we have clear accountability, and everyone understands what part they have to do.



I love using this!

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, it is unique in a world of these type of programmes.

Pros: Simplicity, clarity, cloud based. We were looking for a solution for a Franchised organisation and this is ideal.

Overall: I have been involved in business planning for many years now.

This tool is so simple to use and creates a usable working document in a short space of time which can be updated and reviewed at will.

It can be created by anyone regardless of their level of knowledge and made as complex or as strightforward as required.

I recommend this tool to anyone looking for a simple solution to business planning.

Pros: Business Sorter is very well laid out and easy to follow and use.

It can be as specific as you make it with easy steps/plans.

Most of the key things are already in there for you to use - you just tweak it as you see fit for you.

Cons: Wish I'd had it sooner.

Overall: Simple way to plan for the new sales role I was in to increase my monthly numbers.

Pros: It's intuitive thorough and elegant.

It takes you through nearly everything you'll need to consider (am racking my brain to find the gaps - will let you know when I do). It's a basic process but because of the software and ease of use it makes it easier to engage with than a traditional planning session. It's constantly growing and developing to be more useful and powerful. I just hope that it keeps it's elegants i.e. doesn't get too complex with too many features.

Cons: Not much - there are limitations, i.e. I tend to think in terms of user journey's, where as this is about tasks and teams. If there was a way to create a continuim of plans perhaps?

Vendor Response

by Business Sorter on June 30, 2018

Thanks for your great review and feedback, Tim. You're so right about the risk of creating complexity when adding new features. Simplicity has been a huge focus for us from the start, so user experience is always a main priority when we consider changes. Thanks for your other thoughts too. We're constantly reviewing things so we'll add them to the discussion. And if you think of any gaps, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Pros: Software helped me easily focus what I needed to prioritize. Cut out all the stuff I didn't need to focus on.

Cons: Maybe more options to add extra cards perhaps, but this may defeat the purpose of really focusing your tasks and actions.

Overall: More focus on what I should prioritize.

Pros: It makes business planning very easy and fun. It is a great tool to use with clients to facilitate and monitor planning.

Cons: It would be good if the lowest price band had up to 5 team leaders. This is currently 3 with the next bracket being 10. Pricing however is good.

Thanks for your fantastic review, Dana. It's great to hear that you're enjoying using Business Sorter with your clients. We're currently looking into offering more flexibility around pricing/team leaders and hope to have new options available very soon.

Pros: 1. It summarizes the business planning and aids in monitoring the execution part. Can assign objectives to reach the goal, tasks to people and set target deadlines and budget.

2. Allows to analyze six areas in business. Card sorting system helps us in identifying top priorities to meet our goals.

3. Easily accessible through PC and mobile. We can also invite other people and work collaboratively.

Cons: Not much to say as of now. Expect more project management features which can help us in detailed planning (such as sub tasks or projects to be done to reach the task assigned to the person).

Overall: Saves Time. Helps in communicating with middle and bottom level managers.

Pros: The fully functional task wizard made it a breeze. When it came down to crunch time I had all the support I needed

Cons: That I only had one business plan to make!! Will definately recomend and use again. I suppose if it could somehow read my mind and just automatically hand me the perfect plan that would be an improvment.

Overall: A well presented, smart introduction to my dream.
