Petaluma, CA (PRWEB) August 8, 2007
StratAssemble, a leading developer of web-based project collaboration services designed to increase productivity, today announced the launch of its End of Biz Fires Campaign with the addition of an ROI calculator to its website. Business fires, those unforeseen, unexpected problems that demand immediate attention, affect all companies, and, if they get out of control or happen too frequently, can have a major negative impact on productivity and the bottom line.
The first hour of business is the most important hour of the business day. It is where we all plan our workdays around appointments and meetings, and make process decisions with co-workers on the day's most important tasks, decisions that individually and collectively affect the bottom line. Unfortunately, business fires don't appear on any schedule.
Those business fires are too common in the workplace and are what most of us are checking email for in the morning or at home late at night. While it can be easy to ignore small, smoldering fires, if left unchecked they can flare up and become uncontrollable wildfires. Some chalk it up to Murphy's Law and fail to recognize they help create the conditions for business fires to start. With StratAssemble, a significant percentage of business fires are prevented, and those that do erupt are more quickly managed and extinguished, allowing productive work to continue.
StratAssemble takes most of the guesswork out of project planning by exploring and delineating all aspects of the task at hand--objectives, scope and deliverables, cost and time estimates, milestones to achieve, assumptions, and goals. Risks and issues that could impact the project in any way are also identified up front. This gives team members the best possible approach and a head's up on possible problems. It also enables team members to respond more quickly to any fires that do flare up, as they already have gone through the fire drill in the initial planning stage.
StratAssemble changes the model. "Initially our customers are shocked at the time and money they previously wasted creating and putting out fires," said AJ Wacaser, Founder and President of StratAssemble. "After implementing our solution, the real productivity gains are immediately apparent."
StratAssemble has released a new online Return on Investment calculation tool which will quickly assess how much wasted time and money can be recycled with its collaboration project management solution, thus lowering costs and saving time for new business. The tool is located at:
Check it out and see if business fires are threatening your company.
