We’ve all heard the stories…..
“he was married to his work” ……. “she never made it home in time for dinner”…. “he loves spreadsheets more than me”
Here are 3 ways cloud computing will save your marriage:
- Work from home. Not having to commute in and out during rush hour can add precious hours on to your time at home with loved ones. Take the kids to school to ease the burden from our significant other. Have breakfast or lunch together if you are both at home. If one of you is working, have dinner on the table when the other walks through the door at 6.30pm. It’s the little things which make the difference.
- Stop working so hard. Much of what you might be doing is turgid analysis of what happened last month. How many did we sell? How is this different from this time last year? What are we forecasting for next month? Why do I have to spend so much time analysing these numbers? Cloud ERP gives you figures based on real-time information. The things that matter go on your dashboard to be refreshed at the click of a button. Forget about writing all those crystal reports and fixing broken spreadsheets. Don’t bother plugging numbers into cells. Just check your dashboard before you leave the office at 5pm and figure out your strategy for dealing with it on the commute home
- Love your work again. If you get 1 and 2 (above) right you might start to learn to love what you do again. Happy you makes happy significant other.
