We Never Actually Told… But Our Android App Is Available

That’s right. We’re embarrassed because we never actually told you and publicized it to you, that our Android app of the Doc&Do platform is available.

It has in fact been available now for several months. We did mention in a post in June that the Android version app would soon be here, and it was soon there – we just completely omitted giving you the heads up, that now it was.

Big apologies from us.

But know, that if you are using an Android based smartphone, then you can go and get the Doc&Do Android version app and get going with Doc&Do for you business too – now available at your fingertips via your smartphone. So please go ahead and install the app and make use of this unique tool.

Once you get a good understanding of the platform and what it can do for you, you are sure to become a true fan. And once you are a fan, then please go and tell all your friends and connections about it too (we will really appreciate it).

You Cannot Run

A friend of mine from AdvoCare shared some insights that I thought you would find enlightening. I modified the analogy to reflect our group.

Every day, we hear or otherwise learn about people whose behavior causes them to try to avoid personal responsibility; they claim they “didn’t do it,” or that they “didn’t mean to” or they “didn’t know.” For every action – or inaction – we set into motion an eventual consequence; that consequence isn’t always immediate nor is it fully predictable, but the consequence will appear – sooner or later. If the farmer plants corn, but intended to plant watermelon, he won’t get watermelon, he’ll get precisely what he planted, regardless of his intentions or actions or excuses – or his wishes.

If someone plants a rosebush in their backyard, but the winds blow weed seeds into that same fertile soil, the rose will grow but so will the weeds; and the weeds will – over time – strangle the rose. The planter may explain that his or her intentions were good, but neglect and carelessness always sets into motion an untended consequence. “Wishing it weren’t so” doesn’t matter – we always reap what we’ve sown, whether intended or unintended; that’s a law of nature, and no amount of human excuses, explanation or rationalization makes any difference in the court of nature.

What we see is simply an issue of ‘cause and effect.’ We can try to avoid the effect, but it lingers until later, and when the effect arises, we will suffer the consequence, no matter how remorseful we may be and certainly not if we promise never to do it again; for every cause, a coming consequence.

This ‘cause and effect’ phenomenon works in all areas of our life; our actions set into motion a law of nature, and it works in our spiritual world, it works in our personal world and it works in our business world; if, for example a business owner knows the value of having a business that can run by itself, and does nothing about that but plans to in the future, the wheel of consequence begins to turn, and the seed of chaos has been sown. And now, here’s my real point; if a person ‘intends’ to catch up on and pay off all of his debt but doesn’t, there’s a coming consequence; if a person ‘meant to start’ investing part of his or her income so they can begin earning interest instead of paying it – but never gets around to it – all of the clever explanations in the world won’t make any difference. If a person builds a business but fails to document what they do and what they want others to do for them, then once again, the law is set into motion.

But ‘down the road,’ as he or she enters the autumn of their years, with a business that requires them more than they require it, the day of ‘wailing and gnashing of teeth’ will inevitably come. It’s best to learn – as quickly as possible – the discipline of self-responsibility!

As I read Ron’s words, I can’t help but hear all the ‘excuses’ that arise when people are challenged with rolling up their sleeves and doing the work that is required to free them of future chaos. It’s not just in processes and procedures, it’s in all areas of our life. So many of the troubles people experience are simply the consequences of the seeds they sowed back in the day when they had the energy and time to do it right, and did not. It’s not about being a good or bad person, not at all. It’s about taking the actions that are needed to ensure the seeds sown are the ones you can predict your future consequence, and that prediction is a good one.

Remember, the world doesn’t respond to Need, it responds to Seed! ~ Jim Rohn

Doc&Do Is The Solution For Bank Compliance Challenges feat

Doc&Do As A Bank Loan Compliance Tool And Solution

The Doc&Do Business Management Platform is so versatile, flexible and safe that it has many, many uses and just as many applications.

Indeed as an example, we have explored how the platform could be utilized as a great tool and solution for compliance tasks rendering these task much easier to perform with the availability of Doc&Do. In the little video below we are describing the challenges of certain bank loan compliance obligations.

If you do a search on Google on fines that were dispensed lately to banks for certain violations and breach of some compliance requirements laid upon the banks by legislation and regulations, you will quickly see that these ran in the billions of dollars. That’s right billions with a B.

No doubt, carrying out the necessary work for the banks in order to fulfill all of their obligations in these regards represents a very substantial undertaking and up until now, the banks probably didn’t have much of a tool to do so, except for just a huge amount of manual work combined with pieced together multitudes of platforms and communication tools.

Well, that has been til situation till now.

Doc&Do Is The Solution For Bank Compliance Challenges

We have reviewed the assignment the banks have in terms of bank loan compliance fulfillment and we find that the Doc&Do platform actually presents a very efficient, flexible, powerful and of course, secure tool for fulfilling this task.

Elements such as automated alerts and communications to loan officer and if needed to loan clients in a safe, encrypted and spam-free environment and the storage of not only the loan documents and any relevant documents that the clients need to produce, but also all relevant procedures in one place, help secure uniform, efficient and compliant performance of what is required in a timely fashion, with date stamps and full version and user history. These are but a few of the benefits of just a few of the features the Doc&Do offer that could be useful for the daily bank compliance fulfillment challenges and which would reduce the magnitude of the work.

Certainly, we feel this is quite exciting as we aim to help businesses to become more efficient and have easier operations in daily tasks within the businesses. And since banks tend to be of large magnitudes it means that the help we can bring with Doc&Do is equally large.

At a recent meeting with a major bank, we had the great pleasure to present the Doc&Do platform and our ideas were validated by the bank officers we met with. While this is very, very preliminary and doesn’t present any acceptance or endorsement from any bank to make use of the platform as of yet, we’re excited that the bank in question also found a potential of our platform to entail a possible solution to eliminate some of the pain points they have in connection with their vast work of fulfilling compliance issues and more.

Perhaps Doc&Do is the solution the banks have been missing.

Doc&Do For All Compliance and Corporate Governance Challenges

Here’s some insights to the Doc&Do platform that’s worth noting (long form, see short form further below):

Doc&Do is a Business Management Platform that allows businesses to document all their business processes and collaborate upon among employees, managers and business owners. The platform represents a great tool for safe guarding all business process information and business intellect and eliminates the intellectual property loss when a key employee leaves the business for what ever reason. It provides for a great and super flexible business management tool for daily operations for the employees in the business and an optimal tool for business owners and stake holders to stay in control and have access to relevant information and documents from any smart device, at any time and from where ever the individual may be. Relevant information is also accessible to new hires and helps cut down mistakes and learning curves and secures uniform levels of service and performance throughout the business. Outside partners also become part of the platform with guest or user rights assigned by the administrator of the business’ account in Doc&Do, so that e.g. when tax season comes around the CPA can be invited to relevant sections of the business documents and documentations in order to carry out their tasks with the least disturbance in the daily operation of the business and with the least amount of intrusion for the employees or management. Similarly access can be granted if chosen to relevant areas or specific documents to a business’ lawyers, bank connections or if needed the IRS. Vendors and clients can be invited and managed via the platform, so that for example vendors can supply their invoices to the business and that the business can supply its invoices to clients all via the platform. Doing so reduces the workflow and not least the paper flow and the amount of times each piece of document will have to be handled – as in all the processes relevant to payables, and bookkeeping of same. In other words this goes for inbound as well as for outbound actions and transactions of a business. If used throughout the business, the entire business becomes digitized automatically and the business can in fact eliminate the need for physical paperwork to pile up (as in when the business is required to safe keep the last 7 years of relevant documentation for IRS purposes). Everything is as mentioned encrypted and everything has full history of who did what and when and the Doc&Do platform allows for complete revert of single documents, files or of everything should this be necessary for whatever reason. Over time this ensures that everything is completely documented and this adds dramatically not just to the safety, efficiency and performance of the business, but also to the value of the business in case it’s being sold. By same token due diligence work in a business transaction situation becomes much more speedy, efficient and correct. Many other benefits can be found by utilization of the platform, such as e.g. handling of all quality control processes and handling and much more. The platform is completely industry non-specific and completely flexible, so only imagination sets a limit to how a business can organize itself and what benefits a business can derive from the platform. Likewise, the platform’s flexibility extends fully to how it can handle businesses of any size, making it a perfect fit for the small single location business all the way up to the multi location conglomerate, with possibly even international spread and more. Useful for the small mom-and-pop store to the multinational company, franchise operations and so on.

No Longer A Pipedream The Doc&Do Platform Is Fully Functionable

We Are So Close Now To Official Launch Of Version 1.0

If you have visited our website any time recently, you might have noticed that the progress bar on the front page that shows the progress of our Beta Phase shows a very nice 99%. In other words, we are getting extremely close to officially launch the Doc&Do version 1.0

No Longer A Pipedream The Doc&Do Platform Is Fully Functionable

Clip from current front page of Pivot Point Enterprises’ website

Now that is exciting cause although the platform has actually been fully function-able, powerful and robust since we opened it up for beta use sometime in March this year, then it also means that new and huge benefits will soon be available for users everywhere.

Some of these benefits include the ready availability of templates. Templates can be imported into your entity account with the click of a button. The templates can be templates that are particularly useful for a specific type of business. It could be that a template for a real estate business would offer a great structure that can be imported and that would make great sense to a real estate business and it could possible even be that the template would entail certain standard pieces of valuable information and documents useful for such a business.

Now the templates would be made by users of the Doc&Do platform. Experienced in their own field they might have found an excellent way of structuring and setting up their businesses so that it just makes sense and so that they can run their business much more efficiently and smoothly and so that their structure would enable them better at improving profitability and workflow in general. Well, by making the structure available as a template now they can share their insights and expertise with others and can offer such templates via the platform either as a free offer or offer it for a price. For sure the templates will help speed up the process of getting organized so that a new user can more speedily be ready for more efficient daily workflow and operation. Insights from other experts can furthermore help others gain new ideas and insights as to how to run their businesses better.

In this connection it is useful to note that templates too will be flexible, meaning you can keep from a a template what you like and discard what you don’t feel has a place for your business. You can add to it with your own ideas and further structure that you may have evolved over the course of running your business. But altogether templates will be a valuable addition, and will be predominantly be coming from experts in their fields and users of the Doc&Do platform – possibly a template would be coming from you too…? We would like to think so and hope that you will be taking an active part in making available better structures to help other businesses succeed better.

We live in an economy that could greatly use the help of many and the insights of great experts of their particular fields.

So as always, we invite you to participate on the Doc&Do platform and if you haven’t already done so, by signing up now. Go here to learn more about the Doc&Do platform.

Imagine The Freedom When You Can Stay In Full Control Of Your Business Even When You’re On The Move

Imagine The Freedom…

Imagine when you can stay on top of everything in your business even though you are on the go, out and about, on vacation or traveling on business.

I cannot count the many times I have been away from the office and lacked access to one or more documents or files. Well, now I no longer have to suffer that scenario, but actually have everything accessible at my fingertips via a device that I seem to have with me pretty much all the time – and I suspect you do too: My Smart Phone.

That ability keeps me in the drivers seat of my business and I can handle all the typical document and file actions as I would normally do had I been in the office, but now I can do so from anywhere.

How often have you experienced that situation when you are out of the office and someone calls you up reminding you to send off that contract or that document. You forgot to do so before leaving the office, even though it was an important document to have sent. But you were busy getting out the door or got distracted on your way out or something else. Fact of the matter is, that now the document still rests in the office and nothing will be handled until you get back there.

Well, we now have the freedom to change all of that – and what a great sensation that is.

It will even save me $400 a month on one specific expense I have to meet otherwise for years to come. I can even keep the IRS happy and conform to legal requirements along the way.

Doc&Do Makes Your Employees, Customers and Business Smile feat

Your Training Manual Online, Always Updated And Always At Your Fingertips

When you wish your employees knew how to carry out your business, at the right time, all the time, speedily and efficiently

Inviting new hires into your business can be a wonderful experience and can bring a great feel of rejuvenation and some excitement as to what the new hires may bring your business and add to your business results.

But along with it comes the burden of training them in your systems and your procedures. A burden that can often be costly – indeed very costly.

Research has shown that company employee turn over can cost upwards 150% of the employees’ annual salary your thus meaning the total cost of replacement may easily reach $75,000 for a $50,000 annual salary position. Training of new hires alone can easily cost at least about 20% of the annual salary for the position. A hefty extra expense indeed and one that’s too often overlooked as most of the costs are “hidden” and not always too obvious, and this cost doesn’t factor in valuable information and knowledge lost with the employee that left.

Part of the cost is that you probably will have to have one or more of your more seasoned and experienced employees hand hold the new ones and lead them through a period of training. In other words, the seasoned employees’ productivity declines in the time period they need to hand hold and train a new hire, potentially costing you sales and revenues.

While I like and recommend a mentor system in any business, I also know that you can cut the learning period and the training expense down dramatically by utilizing the right tools and implementation.

Your Training Manual OnlineThis is where the business management system Doc&Do comes in. The Doc&Do platform was built with the specific intention that your team documents all your business processes. In other words you document everything you do and how you do it.

The documentation could be set up in step by step form, which can be extremely useful and may be one of the fastest avenues for someone new to your system to carry out a certain process in your business.

My early entrepreneurial experience was in the car rental business. In car rental businesses as in most other businesses there are many processes that makes up a typical day and that is required to make the business work.

Most of the processes when looked upon individually are very simple, but skip too many steps and things will fail. It is the collective and orderly expedition of each step that makes the system and thus the business work.

When you get in a new hire into most businesses all these components and steps can be overwhelming for someone who do not have the experience from elsewhere. And even when the new hire has previous work related experience, likelihood is that your business does a few things different. Some of these things may even be essential to your business and may be part of what sets your business apart from the competition and make your business unique.

In the car rental business we often had at least one experienced employee mentor a new hire and in most cases more than one experienced employee would be required because there were so many facets involved.

Since my car rental days, my experience in business and in business operations has evolved substantially and I have had my involvement in multitudes of businesses and industries since, spanning several countries and even several continents. My take away from this perspective is that most businesses are the same or at least face the same challenges with regards to new hires. They also all have many small steps in their processes that all are required to ensure the right product or service is delivered and thus they all need to solve the challenges of training and ensuring all employees are on board and on the same page.

The bigger the company the more important this becomes and the bigger the expense and costs involved, should they fail.

In addition to this there’s the risk of losing valuable information as a key employee leaves your business for whatever reason. In smaller companies the scare and the threat may be bigger as you face losing incredibly valuable skills and special knowledge as you lose a key employee. If you have run a business or even just have worked in a company for any length of time, then I’m positive you have experienced at least one situation in which you wish you had the insights and knowledge to solve a certain situation that an employee who is no longer with your company mastered.

As I said, for most small to medium sized businesses this looming risk is often greater. Most small to medium sized business are also with limited resources and very often you will see that such a business has a few key employees who are extremely strong in their areas of the business, while perhaps know little of other areas of the business. Such a business can work well, because the sum of all the parts are in place. But take out one part and all of a sudden the business can be seriously crippled. And employees leave, for whatever reason and often when you least expect it.

Most businesses that I have met and been involved in have no system for documenting what they do and what each employee does in their field and by such measures ensuring the knowledge and what I call the company intellect stay with the business regardless of what happens with an individual employee.

The few businesses that I know of who has documented the processes and the knowledge often have unsecured systems for storing such information and what’s more often have that information in places that makes retrieval and thus daily use difficult or completely off the radar from those who really could use it and where it really could improve your business’ results, delivery and your customers’ experience in dealing with you.

All of the above experiences and the pain points represented in the words above that we have seen in so many businesses or even lived ourselves in our businesses or in previous places of work are part of what lies behind my business partner Frank Curtin’s and my visions for creating the Doc&Do Business Management Platform.

We believe we have succeeded far beyond our initial outset and ideas for the platform and now offer a completely unique solution that will help thousands if not millions of businesses and their many, many employees. That’s our vision. That we may in fact help thousands – hopefully millions – of businesses large or small perform better and more efficiently so that results are generated that will help improve the lives of even more and bring about better results in our economies around the world, to the benefit of all.

Your Training Manual Online At Your FingertipsGranted, the Doc&Do is the delivery mechanism for your business knowledge and ‘how to’ processes, meaning you will still need to document the processes or have someone document it.

This may from the outset seem like a big task, but it really isn’t very time consuming at all, especially if one makes use of every employee in the business, so that each employee documents the necessary steps needed to perform the particular processes that each individual handles in your business.

This makes sense too. By following this suggested avenue you will have the individuals’ expertise shine through and draw out each individuals’’ specific specialized knowledge for the benefit for your business. The bookkeeper will document everything pertaining bookkeeping, reporting (both for public offices as well as for internal), your service employees will document what it is they are doing when they do it best and that ensures customer happiness, as will your sales people so you will retain full knowledge of the best ways of handling customer objections and resistance to buying your services or products.

When everybody carries out this documentation, you will get the best of everything that your company does, from the minds of those who know best. On a management level or business owner level, you can then review and adjust where you see fit or to ensure the incorporation of your vision and possibly mission for your business.

We built the Doc&Do Business Management System in such a fashion that it allows for full collaboration among everyone who needs to be in your team. All revisions and your own notes can be viewed and your version history is saved and stored, so you can always go back and pick out better parts or indeed revert altogether to a previous version.

With full collaboration you can easily and swiftly create the best practices for each process of your business and by documenting them all, you will quickly safeguard all the elements that make up your business.

Sometimes we hear the words: ”But we’re so busy we don’t have time to do this.” Our response is simply:

“If you believe you don’t have time to do this –

then you really don’t have time NOT to do this!!”

You see, what often happens is that you will repeatedly spend time and time again on things that are non-income productive. Certain mistakes are made repeatedly in your business, often on the front line, costing your time, money and unfortunately often customer satisfaction. You will keep spending too long and too much on training new hires, whereas the addition of the Doc&Do Business Management System would help you bring everybody (new as well as old hires) onto the same page as how you conduct business.

Your training manual and your step by step system and procedures now live on an easily retrievable system accessible from all your devices including your employee’s devices with the access levels relevant to each individual.

When I said your manual, system and procedures now live on an easily accessible platform, then that’s exactly the right description for it. Procedures are typically to be considered a live thing. Circumstances, legislation, surroundings, economies all change and for our businesses to survive and hopefully stand the chance of thriving, our businesses and thus our processes need to follow suit and keep up to date.

That’s why the Doc&Do Business Management System becomes even more powerful, because now you can easily revise, edit, update and put in comments along the way. You can put in revision alerts as in when you should revisit the particular procedure in concern again in a timely manner and you will notify in an instant anyone who is in the need to know of any changes and amendments that you may have implemented. Everything gets stored in a safeguarded, secured and communication and alerts takes place in a spam-free environment.

If you are still on the offense about the time involved in getting your documentation in place, then we can even help you there. We have our own consultants and assistants that can help you out and that can help you get in place in swift and efficient manner.  In addition we have trusted external consultants who can assist you, who are experts in business operations and who may even help you organize certain aspects of your business even better than your current organization for better efficiency and results.

In closing remember you are never alone. We’re here to help you. We wish for you to get the best start. Bring your documentation and improved efficiency in place and we will gladly ensure in person that you get off to the best start and help you see how you may benefit in your business from the Doc&Do Business Management System.

Believe me, speaking as a business owner, once you have your entire business on the platform, everything becomes so much easier and you can do so much more even when you are on the go. You’ll feel more confident and secure about what goes on and the state of health of your business. And while this article only speaks on the aspects of your business manual and your business knowledge being safeguarded, these are just a few benefits to the system. As you dive in further, you too, will see just how incredible this platform is and how greatly it will help you, your results and put you in the drivers seat.

So once again, we extend our personal invitation to you to join us with your business on the Doc&Do platform. We hope to see you soon.
