The tool you need to get started: The Markaaz Dashboard

When we started Markaaz, we had been studying small businesses, across the world, for years. 

It was only when we went through the same challenges as other small businesses that we realized what they needed.  

As businesses grow, there is a natural tendency to sign up for more and more business apps (most start with an email and accounting package and then add CRM, payroll, and marketing apps). If you are like most, before you know it, you end up with 20+ different browser tabs pinned to your favorites that you check daily for updates– none of which connect.  

The same goes for your essential documents. You might start with just your certificate of incorporation. Still, before you know it, you add bylaws, your EIN confirmation letter, and business owner insurance, and soon you need a whole filing system.  

Staying ahead

At Markaaz, we thought there had to be a better way to stay on top of all this. This back and forth between apps or looking for the right documents takes about 30% of your time.  

That’s how the Markaaz Dashboard came about! We’ve built the only place where you can organize your business in a single location, see

Credit score basics for small business – with Equifax

Your business already has a credit score. Do you know what it is? We talk to David Adams, Head of Product Marketing, Commercial
Equifax Inc., to discover how your business credit score affects your business 

Whether you know it or not, your small business started receiving a credit score as soon as you registered your business with your state. Like your personal score, it’s essential you work to maintain and improve that score. A better score allows you to access better credit and improve business growth. 

When you register your business with your state, credit score companies get a business registration notification and start a digital credit file. As your business grows, more and more information is added to your file based on your various business transactions, which strengthen or weaken your small business credit score based on your history. 

These payments include phone and internet service payments, rental agreements and rental payments, credit cards, and other recurring business payments and expenses. Paying your business bills on time gives you a good business credit score, which includes utility information.

Some credit agencies, such as Equifax, now have access to a utility payments database. This database can help new businesses or
