Time is Money: Work Smarter, Not Harder

Efficiency. We know, it’s such a cliché. We all seem to be thinking about or working toward being more efficient at any point in time.

But there is a reason everyone has efficiency on their mind: it makes things simple. Whether it is simplifying a process, streamlining workflows, automating entries, or something else, our businesses run better when things are simple.

At Wise Option, we want you to have all of the above and more, so that your business can be in the best situation possible. Whether you are a business owner or an employee, you do not want to be wasting time with redundancies, complicated flows, and blockers that will end up costing the company precious time and money.

As we mentioned in our previous post, Wise Option offers our software on three different platforms: mobile, web, and desktop. Since we are a True Cloud Solution, all of your data is going to sync to the same place. Whether you prefer to work from one, two, or three of our platforms, you will never have to worry about different data in certain places or unwanted duplicates. We’ve got you covered.

One of the many problems with inefficiency is that it is so costly. When you are wasting hours of your time on processes that could be done faster, you should consider yourself to be working for free. You could be supplementing that lost time with other projects if things were better organized, bringing in more profit for your business.

Wise Option eliminates those stubborn redundancies, as we are laser-focused on improving your workflow through logistical approaches. When processes aren’t standardized or a company is not using a True Cloud Solution, many items could be falling through the cracks. Data could be lost, corrupted, or stored over others. You may lose track of where you put what, furthering the amount of time and money spent on aspects of your business that should be standardized.

Killing two birds with one stone, unification, streamlining, call it whatever you want. Using Wise Option’s True Cloud solution is your shot at efficiency. Work smarter, not harder, as we are your wisest option.

Don’t Be Deceived: Characteristics of a Real, True Cloud Solution

If you are shopping around for a cloud service provider, let us help with your research. With many different cloud software platforms on the market, it can be difficult to not only decide on one but to also determine which are and aren’t true cloud solutions.

This is where we come in. Not only are we here to talk about Wise Option, but also talk about what you should look for when you are deciding on software for your business. You don’t need to be super technical and understand the ins and outs of programming to make this decision. Look out for these characteristics to ensure that you are not being deceived.

At Wise Option, we offer our software on a mobile and desktop app, as well as on a web browser. In short, there are two components to our Solution: the software and the database. When you are working within the apps or browser, whatever populates on your screen is known as the software. Clicking buttons, typing text, and switching between tabs all happen here. The database comes into play when you hit save, as everything is stored here. Your database is inside the cloud, in a specific server and repository.

The reason why we are harping on this is that, as we have mentioned, some programs can be deceiving. Some places simulate a cloud without having a true cloud. In these cases, the software and the database will be in the same place. When you are searching for a secure cloud, there is a large data center that only manages the database.

Here is a question to ask: Is your business creating a virtual machine and installing everything or are you partnered with a data server?

This is important because if they are creating it themselves versus outsourcing with a data server, you are not protected as it is not a true cloud. Data servers provide policies around redundancies, firewalls, encryption, and security. If you are investing in this for your business, you want to make sure that your data is safe.

A good rule of thumb is if the company offers a web browser option, you are most likely looking at a true cloud solution.

At Wise Option, we offer just this to support your business. Even though we have three different platforms, all of your data is going to sync to the same place. Do you usually prefer the desktop app but need to input something into the mobile version? No problem. You can access all of your data from any of these places.

When you find yourself shopping for your business, it is important to stay alert and informed. Ask the right questions and do your research. In the end, the elements of security, mobility, and efficiency will truly pay off.
