FUTRLI is a fantastic tool to monitor your business performance in your sleep. Our alerts will notify you on auto-pilot so you can turn it on in app and mentally switch off. This is an example guide for an iPhone as we’re Apple converts at FUTRLI, but if you search the web you’ll be able to find more how-tos. The principle is the same. - 3minute read

Because we sync with Xero and Quickbooks daily, you’ll be the first to know if there are changes that need your attention. You can even set warning alerts for you or your team.

Rather than relying on when you next log into your inbox to see the message, your phone can be configured to VIP alert you thus enabling sound, vibrations or lock screen notifications solely for FUTRLI notifications. The good news, it’s really easy to do and genuinely life changing. Once enabled, you’ll wonder how you coped without it!

1. First, you’ll want to make sure you have set up some alerts for your business. For example…

  • It’s good news when your bank balance reaches a set amount
  • It’s bad news when your accounts payable has risen above an agreed amount
  • It’s good news when average spend per head exceeds your target

Our alerts work for financial and non-financial data and, importantly, it is not just about the past or present. We look to the future and will warn you if assumptions you’ve made about your business forecast are not as expected for good or bad reasons.

2. We’ll email notifications to you so the next step is to set up FUTRLI as a VIP
