ReadySum started when the founder, Mario Lurig, was looking for an inventory tool to use in his chocolate business, Dice Candies, as well as his significant other's company, Lovin Oven Goodies. Realizing the tool needed to be dead simple, device agnostic, and mobile-friendly (else it be underutilized) he decided to write his own as the market didn't have any options that met that criteria.
After a year of private use and testing, as well as interactions with many other small business owners who were either not tracking inventory at all, or using paper and pen, ReadySum was rebuilt from the ground up for everyone.
The primary focuses of the tool are: simple, mobile-friendly, international, and inexpensive.
Mario is an author, web developer, and chocolatier. Mario balances life and work under the Slowpreneur philosophy: Don't sacrifice your life for your work, but instead enjoy both.
Languages and Translations
From the beginning, ReadySum was designed for international appeal. With that in mind, real people are used to translate the tool into a variety of languages, so any entrepreneur could use the tool, regardless of their native language.
While some translations may lag behind new features, the tool will always default to English if a translation is not yet available.
Currently supported languages: English, German, and French.
Future supported languages: Deutsch, English, español, français, 日本語, 한국어, português, 中文.
