YOUR Needs First.
A View From the Top
It’s hard to see the full picture when you’re staring at a single pixel. For many executives, the only part of their company’s technology they see are the parts that affect their day-to-day practices. And that’s a problem if there’s an inefficiency or blockage down the line. The solution is getting some perspective from a higher vantage point.
SCS Cloud is that perspective. We look at every aspect of your business and show you what an expert sees: what’s working, what’s not, and where simple tweaks can save you time and money. We take the time to analyze your organization at the micro level, scrutinizing each pixel (whether it’s an employee adding names to a mailing list or a manager reading weekly sales reports from their team). But we also use our training and expertise to make sense of how it all fits together.
A consultant who offers canned solutions can’t do any of that. It’s like overhauling a city’s highway system without stopping to pinpoint where the traffic jams occur. To clear away the roadblocks that are slowing you down, you need help from someone who knows how to read a map—from the pixel on up.
Taking Control of Time
In business, time is your greatest adversary. There are only 24 hours in a day. But technology is changing at an exponential rate, and workflows are changing with it. If your competitor finds a faster way to do what you do, they could be operating with the equivalent of 25 hours—or 26, or 27. No business can afford to operate at less than top efficiency.
So how do you make sure you’re not falling behind? You could hire a full-time CTO to stay on top of it all. The median salary for a CTO is around $193,000. You’d likely improve your efficiency, but you’d take a big hit to your bottom line. That’s not practical for every business, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get protection from the dangers of obsolete tech.
That’s where we come in.
What We Do
How do you do what you do, faster and better? How do you get more work done in less time? You leverage technology to support the way YOU work. Our custom-built cloud solutions show you how. And since a solution that can’t be implemented isn’t really a solution, we guarantee that all our proposed workflows are intuitive and easy to learn.
How Efficient Are You?
“Want to go really fast? Slow down and focus.” –Tim Fargo, entrepreneur and keynote speaker
Some businesses never achieve their potential because they never take the time to focus on how they do things. But doing so is crucial. A study on the healthcare field showed that a simple switch from paper to tablets saved physicians 17.5% of time spent on documentation—but the use of inefficiently located central desktops actually increased documentation time by up to 328.6%.
Lost time takes a toll in every industry. Research has shown that interruptions can consume 238 minutes per day. Workers can spend up to a quarter of their day reading and answering emails. And distractions are more than just a brief interruption—it takes an average of 23 minutes and 15 seconds to get your attention back on track after it’s diverted.
Whether your employees are stopping to Google a Salesforce question, search multiple databases for a figure the client needs, or email each other for clarification on a sales report, that means one thing: distraction. And it could be eating up hours each day.
When you view your business as a total picture, you may not always love what you see. But seeing it is key if you want to get better.
