Making Your Business Relevant Through Innovation
Over the past years the web has evolved and will continue to evolve as long as there is life. With the enhancement of technology, it has allowed the web to move from simply plain text based websites (black text on white background) to fun loving, creative, dynamic, flashy and even sexy (Yes! I said sexy) websites.
How in the world can a website be even considered sexy? When it’s simply plain text and colors, there can never be anything remotely sexy about that. Indeed you would have been right! If only you had told me that 10 years ago, unfortunately for you, the calendar (the thing with the bunch of numbers, days, months and years) has turned a few times over. I seriously hope yours has turned too.
No longer are designers doing the things they did in the past. Remember what we used to call “tables” history? Remember what we used to call “IE” history? Oh! It’s not… well it should be right next to the great depression. Designers now have the ability to create the curves, smoothness, attractiveness, interesting, desirable, beautiful, appealing designs and convert them into fully functional, productive, sexy website and web applications. With the birth of HTML5 and CSS3 the boundaries will be pushed even further.
The internet is now considered the superhighway of global information; therefore there should be no reason why your company/organization is not part of this global real estate. Make it your challenge to make your business relevant through innovation. Redefine your work flows, improve business processes and operations, automate tedious tasks while you and your staff focus on core strategic plans that will grow your business and improve overall business productivity.
No longer do you need to be confined only to your desktops or be dealing with stacks of paper, common its 2011 not 1911. Why not utilize the power of web applications and be free to work from home or any remote location with a laptop and an internet connection while having access to the same functionality and power.
Don’t be left in the dust recording inventory via spread sheets or fumbling through stacks of paper while your competitors are already doubling up on sales. Gain the upper hand and let innovation be the fuel to the success of your business, get instant inventory notification while on your way to the saloon/barbershop, let your employees check in from home, approve documents while on the go and communicate information freely. Indeed the calendars on the wall have turned and so should your business evolve to keep up-to-date and match the current date on the wall.
