Ben Kepes draws my attention to some interesting news for customers of Barclays bank here in the UK. As part of a broader package of support for their small business customers, the bank will be pushing online backup with Mozy, online accounting with FreeAgent, online business planning with LivePlan, online training from MindLeaders, and online forms and legal docs from Rapidocs. It also looks as though the bank’s MyBusinessWorks package will include the hand-holding that some new customers may require before gaining the confidence to proceed on their own. I’m impressed; I sometimes wonder if my UK bank (not Barclays) even knows what “online” is… FreeAgent is particularly popular with small UK businesses (I’ve used it myself for several years), but Barclays’ backing could take them and the other featured companies to a whole new level of audience reach.
