Many applications are designed for scheduling and business management. However, most of these focus on small to large businesses and organizations. They include features intended for managing large projects and teams of employees. Oprius is one of the few that cater to the independent professional. Sales people can gain better control over their contacts and never miss a follow up or other important task with Oprius’ scheduling and reminder features.
The Oprius website has a very stylish, modern appeal that works well. Snowflake shapes and a blue and orange color scheme compliment the overall appearance of the site and application. Users can quickly register and begin using Oprius features without much effort. The user interface is colorful, with appealing icons and blue buttons as well as headers that help break down the information. The design elements used make it much easier to find the tools needed quickly without reducing the functionality of Oprius.
All users can try out Oprius for 30 days for free. After that, they must choose to upgrade to the paid membership, which includes all available features. The membership runs about $15 per month.
