A Modern Executive in a Mobile World

There are distinct challenges at play when you’re a Mobile Executive. You are probably a business owner or senior leader in an organisation who is required to make strategic and operational level decisions while you are out and about, on the-fly while having all the information available to make that decision. How visible is your information in real-time to allow you to make these decisions?

Technology is always evolving, and, as a result, so are our lives and businesses. Today, everyone uses a computer to plan their day, answer email, or research a potential new client. However, mobile technology is changing our working lives in completely new ways.

 

” 43% of employees say the ability to work remotely is a must-have. “

 

At first, mobile phones gave us the freedom to make a call from the street or answer email on the train. Now, our customers expect us to respond to email and answer calls whether we’re in the office or not. Some even expect us to be able to make critical decisions wherever we are. Even our employees expect to be mobile. According to a 2017 survey conducted by Staples, only 32% of employees spend the entire day in the office, and 43% say the ability to work remotely is a must-have.

If mobile is moving from a luxury to a necessity, what can we do to remain competitive? At Red Arrow Consulting, we recommend utilising a Financial Project Management System such as WorkflowMax.

Real-time Visibility of your organisation.

With WorkflowMax’s app on your phone, you can update a quote at a job site, send an invoice, or pull up a report during a client lunch. And your employees can post their time right from the job site without having to get back to their computers to do it. A mobile-optimised Financial Project Management System can free you from your desk and allow you to make business-critical decisions from anywhere.

With information available right at your fingertips, you can create a report showing how a vendor’s costs have risen with each project while you’re walking a site on a bid. Real-time information can be invaluable throughout your day while you’re out of the office by providing you instant leverage during negotiations.

Virtual job management

The WorkflowMax app frees you to work on a quote from anywhere, such as the back of a car or train, and pick up right where you left off when you get back to the office. You can view your day at a glance so you can plan meetings and work without having to get back to your desk to check. You can also review attached documents on quotes and invoices so you’re prepared for that next meeting in the field without needing to print out copies.

The new normal – Expectations have changed.

The business world is going mobile, and both clients and employees expect their companies and customers to move at the same speed. At Red Arrow Consulting, we specialise in business consulting for small businesses that compete in this new environment. Plus, with the WorkflowMax project management software, you can work on the go with the right information at your fingertips.

What is a financial project management system?

One of the biggest challenges facing small business owners is whether they can make the right decision at the right time. For example, how would you choose between two large clients? Imagine that they both offered to continue working with you, but only if you signed a non-compete agreement that prevented the other from being[...]

Business transformation – decision making in the information age.

Uncertainty is a significant threat to every business. Whenever we try to reduce uncertainty, we often end up with more information than we can process and can become paralysed by indecision – especially in the Information Age. An integrated project management system can prevent information overload and help us make more informed decisions instead of[...]
