Brookfield, WI (PRWEB) March 14, 2014
Despite the technological boom of the last 30 years, there are still many American companies relying on hand-written order forms and paper spreadsheets to conduct business. Some have entered the digital world slowly while others have embraced new technologies, only to find themselves struggling to locate information saved on different computer systems in a variety of outdated formats.
SecurCare Self Storage, Inc., headquartered in Lone Tree, Colorado, is one national business that has seen the benefits of installing a new integrated data and communications portal. “This portal allows our leadership team to communicate company updates and share documents with our employees,” said SecurCare’s Marketing Manager, Megan Rossow, “and it also allows our employees to communicate with each other through forums that are set up similar to a social media platform.”
SecurCare teamed up with Cilio Technologies, of Brookfield, Wisconsin, to build a customized Partners Portal, a web-based data and communication system, which consolidated all of SecurCare’s business data. Information that had previously been on paper forms and on a variety of computer programs is now digitally accessible in one place. SecureCare managers across the country can now update and share a wide variety of information in real time, making it much easier for the company’s leadership team to prepare everything from daily sales figures to annual budgets. The net result has been a marked increase in efficiency and productivity across the entire company.
Partner and Vice President of Professional Services and Development at Cilio Technologies, Jeremy Olejnik, enjoys watching businesses like SecurCare discover the many ways a well-designed portal can improve workflow and ultimately increase profits. “When they see how easy it is to streamline information and communication, especially between geographically dispersed locations,” said Olejnik, “they understand the real value of time savings and profitability across the board. Working with SecureCare has been particularly rewarding because they’re a forward-thinking company. They quickly realized the benefits of having immediate access to everything from sales leads and call center analytics to contracts and human resources information. Information that used to take days to gather now takes a few seconds.”
A communications center was also incorporated into SecurCare’s desktop program, which allows the company’s managers to share documents and ideas with corporate headquarters and with each other, much like having their own private version of Facebook or LinkedIn. Employees can send private messages or share photos, documents, data and even blogs with whomever they choose.
As web-based technologies become more versatile, companies of all sizes, especially those with complex ordering and project management requirements, are quickly realizing that access to data consolidation and web portals can enhance and optimize their business and communication systems both inside the company and among outside business partners. Cilio Technologies has found a way to harness the power of web-based business management and turn it into tangible profits for business.
