Going beyond a basic paper checklist, the software is designed to give unprecedented transparency and accountability into operations where task completion has a direct correlation to profitability. Most small businesses and franchise operations already use some sort of task lists. This is the main reason for the consistent and predictable performance from the likes of McDonalds, Lowes, Publix and other geographically dispersed type operations. Checklists are used because they are simple, flexible and a perfect remedy to a bad memory. Checklists are most effective when there is a clear line of accountability back to an individual. Most paper checklists fail this accountability test. In addition, all the hassles associated with paper (storage, tracking, etc), makes a OpsAssure “Green” initiative any company can embrace.

The checklist should not be seen simply as a list of things someone has to do; it is a tool that achieves defined objectives. In this context, checklists help improve the consistency of core operations and make tracking much easier to track than paper. The core operations are those necessary steps that strike a delicate balance between success and failure to produce the outcomes required to enhance productivity and maximize profits.
