Christmas is fast approaching and there are many office parties in full swing already… The kids have finished their exams and the school prize giving is wrapping up..
For many of you Christmas is a time to get away from the office, a time when you switch off, relax and do the compulsory South African waddle to the swimming pool as the summer weather gets into full gear.
But for many business owners, including myself, the quieter office days leading up to Christmas and beyond, are our treasured time to catch up on all our unanswered emails, read those articles we just didn’t get to read and start thinking of new ideas. I also find it is the best time to investigate what is hot and what is not, in the software and technology space…..
Don’t get me wrong, I do not sit all day in the office as summer is knocking at the window. With mobility I can catch up on documents, emails, tasks and bits and pieces while watching the kids swim in the pool, or building sandcastles at the beach.. (Yes my European friends, Christmas sucks in Africa ..hehe)
For those of you looking for that piece of software that is going to make a difference to your business in 2018, and set you apart from your competitors, you really do need to take a look at M-Files. I am not saying this because we are partners and solution providers of this amazing piece of software. But, as the saying goes “we practice what we preach”. The M-Files solution has been a key tool in the operation of VM Consulting over the past couple of years, and it stores all our client, project and business information. In addition to this, we use it to run our support desk, timesheet system and sales tracking. That allusive 360 degree view is real, I promise you, we have it!
M-Files is a completely customizable solution. An Intelligent Information Management solution, that allows businesses to store information, documents, content, automate processes and pretty much become the solution within your business, that is your business.
Now I know reading may not be top of the priorty list for many of you over the next couple of weeks, but I have made it easy….. Grab a glass of wine, put the feet up on the sun lounger and take a look at a couple of these videos showing more about this amazing tool…
Then give one of my team a call, if you want to take a closer look at the solution that is going to take over the world in 2018……
Happy Viewing…..Happy Holidays
