Moving the Digital Transformation Dial - Structured vs. Unstructured Work

Posted by Sean Halliday on Jul 25, 2018 9:36:26 AM

Work moves fast these days. Not only has technology sped up how we work, but it’s enabled people to oversee approximately twice as much work (projects, people, issues and events) vs. only a few years ago. But not all work is created equal – there are different kinds of activities, and as such, different tools to meet various needs. With the incredible clutter of technology solutions available to make us more efficient, it’s important to understand what kind of work you’re doing before you load up on tools.

Moving the Digital Transformation Dial – First Things First, Get Organized

Posted by Sean Halliday on May 30, 2018 8:45:23 AM

I confess! I love to organize things. I get a tremendous sense of accomplishment and calm when things are in their place, under control and easily found. I like to know where we’re going and how we’re getting there. Sure, a psychologist might have some concern over the thrill I get from organizing, but I’m willing to face the music – I simply love to put things in their places.

Have you ever noticed how some of the greatest discoveries in history were made while trying to do something else? Percy Spencer was experimenting with microwaves for radar arrays when he switched gears and came up with the microwave oven.  Wilson Greatbatch came up with the Pacemaker by accidentally choosing the wrong resistor. And a dog invented Velcro when his owner, George de Mestral, noticed burs sticking to his fur. Sometimes what you think your doing doesn’t quite show where you’re going to go.

Introducing: Where the Money Lives e-Guide

Posted by Sean Halliday on Mar 14, 2018 9:45:30 AM

In 1997 I started a Document Management company focusing on selling, implementing and supporting Documentum.  Through the years that business worked with Livelink, FileNet, Hummingbird and several others.  Ultimately we purchased a software company and continued advancing our own Document Management product.  We did some good work, for some really big companies North America wide.

Where the Money Lives Series: Conclusion

Posted by Sean Halliday on Jan 9, 2018 8:00:00 AM

I love Document Management!  I get such satisfaction in helping people organize their documents, and in seeing them use information effectively to achieve their goals.  It seems almost unbelievable that the simple act of organizing documents is such a ‘game changer’ for many people and companies…but it is, and it matters!  And we have a lot of sharable expertise to provide our partners.

Hardware: It Doesn’t Need to Be So Hard

Posted by Sean Halliday on Jan 2, 2018 8:00:00 AM

 

Where the Money Lives Series,  Part 8:  Hardware – It Doesn’t Need to Be So Hard

I’ll start this article with a guilty admission – throughout this whole series, I’ve worked hard to not speak about hardware.  The focus has been on service – Software as a Service, hosting services, support services, migration/populations services…and of course, professional (configuration) services.  Recognizing that many of you reading this actually sell hardware – MFP’s, scanners and other technology – I guess I’ve been messing with you a little bit.  But my intentions have been pure! I wanted you to think beyond the ‘box’.

Fill ‘er Up!: Moving Content into a Document Management Solution

Posted by Sean Halliday on Nov 29, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Where the Money Lives Series,  Part 7:  Fill ‘er Up! – Moving Content into a Document Management Solution

One of the most frequent objections you’ll hear from a prospective Document Management System client is “we have so much paper and our shared drives are such a mess…we’ll never get there.”  Don’t accept that – it’s quitter talk, and certainly acceptance of that company’s ultimate failure.  Document messes don’t clean themselves up, they get worse EVERY YEAR.  The time to act is always sooner rather than later.  The good news is there are ways to help even the most ‘messy’ of companies, and a good Document Management company will be able to light the way.
