Scheduling your team members and volunteers can get cumbersome really quickly without the right tools. We have made recent updates to our scheduling app within Bento to make scheduling quick and easy for anyone who needs to schedule team members or volunteers.
Hiring new staff can be both exciting and daunting. In an effort to make your life easier hiring new team members, we wanted to highlight one way we use our custom contact workflows: Hiring New People.
We have some great discussions as a team that vary between software, business & life talks. In a recent chat, we discussed how every company is actually a software company. What does that mean? No matter what business type you are, you need to be investing in your technology and software in order to compete. The alternative is you stay the same and get left behind. We discuss some great examples of companies in different business classes and how they have invested in technology and software to make themselves better. As a result, they are standing out in the crowd. See how you can apply this to your business:
At a certain point, closing more business can actually do more harm than good. We’ve seen this happen most often when businesses are trying to grow past the $2-$5 Million in revenue mark. You can hustle to $1-$2 Million in revenue, but sustainable growth beyond that point requires new behavior.
The days of working the same 9-5 for 40+ years seem to be on the path of extinction. Automation and a moderately consistent push to “try something new” means team members might not always stick to one company for their entire career. What does this mean if a valued team member gains plenty of information on their work responsibilities and/or their client? How will a company replace such a valued asset if that person leaves? No matter what, an experienced team member can easily gain strong operational memory during their time in a work position. Companies and businesses need systems to help pass this memory to other team members.
It’s strange nowadays not to have a downloadable mobile app. Being a startup, you might assume it’s just something we haven’t gotten around to yet. But actually, it’s an active choice on our end. It’s a business and philosophical decision.
At Bento, we are always looking to make our software better. Our most recent update to the Bento software application is no different; we received your feedback and made some updates to increase the user-friendliness. Here’s what’s new.
Whether you’re a writer, editor, planner, or leader, text is still our best way to communicate complex ideas.
