STAGE THREE – “GROWTH”
Your focus now is to build your systems in order to support the growth of your business. This is essential for you to be able to peel away from areas of the business.
In order to scale, you need to be able to repeat your success in order to provide the same product or experience through automated systems in place.
As your business grows, you need a system that will make managing multiple projects with various team members a breeze. This platform enables you to plan, organize, and track your team’s output in one place. Since the platform is visual, it’s easy and intuitive to use – you might not need any training. You can easily view your data in Timeline or Gantt view to track projects and ensure you meet your deadlines on time. The best part is, it’s possible to have a tailor-made experience for your device with the confidence that your team members have everything at their fingertips.

With the fast paced environment that we are all in, we need a program that will make sharing important business documents easier and faster without the risk of losing data. Google Docs gives us just that because it allows teams to work on a single document using their browser only. Multiple users can work on the document at the same time and each change is automatically saved – making it easier to track everyone’s ideas in one central document. The good thing about this is that you can import most document types including PDFs making these files instantly editable in Google Docs. With these features, it makes communication easier across teams because of the transparency and efficiency it allows across teams.
Similar to Google Docs, the cloud-based architecture of Google Sheets enables you to collaborate with your team anytime, anywhere. Because this is compatible with other systems including Microsoft Office, the flow of data from one system to another is more fluid, which makes working together easier, smart, and definitely secure. Google Sheets is a very powerful tool for uncovering valuable business insights using data. It provides everything you need to analyze and visualize your data while ensuring that these confidential data are protected by the world’s most advanced security infrastructures.
As a global business, it’s important that you are able to communicate with your team no matter where you are in the world. When working on important business presentations, real time collaboration is key to creating beautiful presentations together. Using just your browser, you and your partners can work on a single presentation while chatting, commenting, and editing the same set of slides at the same time. You don’t need to worry about not having the latest version because changes are saved automatically. Designing slides is a breeze because you have ready to use templates but of course, nothing is stopping you from creating your own from scratch. Google Slides will work with your PC or Mac, phone or tablet, so you always have the option of viewing wherever you may be, even if you’re about to present in the next 3 minutes.
