This is the first article in a series demonstrating some of the ways that software can make your life easier and help your business GROW.
One of my mantras is that computers make our lives easier. Let’s take advantage of their capabilities by squeezing every possible bit of use out of them. Badly designed software can waste a lot of your time. Who’s got time for crap software?
One of my favourite features to build into our software is: INSTANT GLOBAL SEARCH 🔍
Imagine having a butler who you could turn to at any point and whisper a few words in their ear. In the blink of an eye, they bring you a document that you wrote 5 years ago that you forgot you’d even written. The name, phone number and favourite food of a customer that you hadn’t added to your phone. A product in your catalogue that you remember the name of, but not the item code (or maybe the other way around).
A lot of software gets this wrong. They have search boxes, yes, but they make you decide what you’re looking for and go to the right screen before entering your query.
Why should this matter? If it’s built well, the software can search the ENTIRE DATABASE quicker than I can even find the right screen!
As an extra productivity bonus, we like to make the software search as you’re typing.
Why wait until I’ve typed 10 letters and click ‘Search’, when 5 would have done the job?
Why do I need to even click ‘Search’? Why can’t the software just have the results waiting for me when I finish typing?
The answer is: of course it can. It’s just that a lot of software systems DON’T do this.
Our attention spans are fleeting, and in a modern working environment we’re only ever a few moments away from an unexpected phone call or email notification. How much are you and your team missing because of this?
Do you want to get this time back, every day, forever?
