Our CEO Damian shares his top 5 tools that have helped him to get Nutritics off the ground in the early days.
7th Apr 2020
Moving your business online is hard. Having to set up your company as a telehealth business at such short notice is even harder. However, you are not alone. At the moment, everyone, including us, has to do things differently, and do them fast. 

Our CEO Damian has taken some time to pull together some tools that have helped him to get Nutritics off the ground in the early days and are still an essential part of our operations. According to him, it is all about using software to automate processes. Work smarter not harder! 

Automation is key when it comes to 
  • Increasing your income
    Discover new opportunities where technology can increase your revenue and help you to increase your brand awareness. 
  • Supporting and backing up your decisions
    Deliver your messaging effectively using technology, with the reassurance that it is supported by the latest evidence base. 
  • Saving a huge amount of time
    Deliver a better quality of service in less time than ever before and free up time to take on more clients.

5 online tools for nutrition professionals 

These are the top five digital tools that Damian heavily relied on when setting Nutritics up for success. Tools, we are still using today.
