What are Apps and Packs?
Understanding our stock packs and the apps they contain
Before you start using Method to streamline your workflow and improve your business practices, it might be helpful for you to understand what we're talking about when we refer to apps and packs.
An app is a self-contained program (or piece of software) designed to perform a specific function. Method apps are organized around a particular task or workflow, and can talk to one another to facilitate getting a job done. These Apps are customizable (check out our handy articles on customization to get you started), but even our stock apps are designed to work together to meet the unique needs of your small business.
Packs are groups of individual apps that work best together for particular work flows. We currently offer several major packs:
