manage their payments.

Read Our Story

When we were running our own company, we noticed there were no tools created to help small businesses run smoothly. If you were a small and medium-sized business (SMB), you were largely ignored. What this meant is that we were spending more time administering our business than chasing our passion. This felt wrong. We knew there had to be a better way of doing things. So our passion became helping SMBs avoid some of the challenges that our business had originally faced. That was the birth of Plooto.
