Originally publishes as SohoOS Debuts ‘Soho Shop’ App Marketplace on Technorati

SohoOS announced today the debut of Soho Shop, an online marketplace for third-party businesses to sell their services to SohoOS users. SohoOS, in case you aren’t familiar, is a virtual operating system for small office/home office (SOHO) that allows companies to use their free online system that consolidates all of their business tools in one place. Users can access the platform from a desktop or mobile/tablet device. With todays launch of the new ‘Soho Shop’, they now have an in-house marketplace that allows members, as well as external service providers to buy and sell subscription-based services that cover the gamut of small business tools, and are fully integrated with the member’s account.

The first products that will be made available via the Soho Shop include:

  • Personalized data backup
  • Leads widget to funnel ‘hot leads’ directly in to the user’s account
  • Document templates according to theme from legal to finance
  • Invoicing template themes to extend the free invoicing capability of SohoOS
  • myPage themes to give SohoOS pages a customized design layout

Currently supports nearly 850,000 micro-businesses worldwide. Users are typically entrepreneurs and small business owners taking advantage of the free platform for business operations and also connecting them to the other 850,000 members on the platform. Currently SohoOS offers solutions for contact management, invoices and billing, inventory management, freelance and vendor networking, project and document management.

According to an article in ReadWriteWeb, “SohoOS is more than just another software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup for small business.” This is perhaps due to’s lofty goals of not only providing SMB’s with free tools to manage their business, but to establish a new global micro-economy where growing businesses can interact, collaborate and perhaps even use the pooled purchasing power to compete with larger competitors economies of scale advantage.

Soho Shop gives our users that capability,” said Ron Daniel, CEO of “Whether you’re a florist shop needing a more tailored invoicing system, a fine artist looking for an easily accessible yet secure repository for images, or a realtor looking for a rich source of sales leads, Soho Shop will give you the tailored solution you’re looking for.”

  3. Well, I don’t think postseason reorcd should really be taken into consideration by the HOF, that is what led to the terrible inductions of guys like Bill Mazeroski and Kirby Puckett. And if you look at Schilling’s comparables they are: Kevin Brown, Bob Welch, Orel Hershiser, Freddie Fitzsimmons, John Smoltz, Milt Pappas, Don Drysdale, Dazzy Vance, Jim Perry, and Catfish Hunter. Only three current HOFers and one likely (Smoltz). I think the names Kevin Brown, Bob Welch, and Orel Hershiser are the ones that stand out more to me here. Those guys are his comparables and while each is borderline, none of them are getting in. If you are going to put Schilling in because of his postseason performance, then what about Orel’s postseason performance? Outside of 1985 (very early in his career) and 1997 (very late in his career), the guy was an absolute ace. Look at his numbers in the World Series for the Dodgers in 88 and even though he took the losses, his two starts in 95 for the Indians were great! He just had the misfortune of facing vintage Greg Maddux in the first game, but did beat him in game 5. The WHIP and Ks of Schill are better, but the ERAs and Ws are just about the same, plus Orel won a Cy Young (something Schill never did) and set the reorcd 59 consecutive scoreless innings pitched.
