Problems encountered by BestBuy and Yahoo are easy to solve
NEW YORK, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – While BestBuy and Yahoo walk away from telecommuting and return to the “let’s-put-everybody-in-cubicles” business model, many companies grow fast by embracing it and using TransparentBusiness practices.
For many small companies, Transparent Business has been a game changer, allowing them to compete with much larger companies for international clients. For example, ErnestoOlivares.com, a visual communications company which relies on TransparentBusiness to manage its remote workers located in Spain, Argentina, and India.
“Using TransparentBusiness, a telecommuting project management can be carried out with ease,” says Ernesto Olivares, CEO and Founder of the company. “TransparentBusiness provides total visibility of the entire project process. It also allows time flexibility for employees, so they can better balance their professional activity and family life. The geographical location of the employees is no longer a problem and we can incorporate talent from anywhere in the world.”
Miami-based online visibility agency Intuic.com has been using TransparentBusiness since 2008 to monitor and coordinate work of its employees and contractors in 17 countries, growing its business by 80% despite adverse economic conditions.
Companies in 96 countries including the USA use TransparentBusiness. It allows businesses to monitor remote workers MORE effectively than normal in-office observation. The tool records all activity of the worker, taking supporting screenshots every 3 minutes, so the managers could know who is doing what in real time, and/or review the past performance.
Moreover, managers can see true status and cost of every task and project — from anywhere. TransparentBusiness protects workers’ privacy, while greatly increasing productivity of telework.
On March 5, 2013, The Census Bureau released information that shows the number of Americans working at home increased by 4.2 million between 1997 and 2010. Stability of their work and the related rewards depend in great degree on tools like TransparentBusiness.com.
Effectiveness of telework is a matter of national importance. Teleworking “can produce resource savings and reduce time, expenses, and greenhouse gas production associated with commuting,” wrote former White House chief of staff Jacob Lew in a 2011 memo, in an effort to encourage telecommuting at federal agencies.
“We offer an easy and economical solution to the problems of managing a remote workforce,” says Alex Konanykhin, the CEO of TransparentBusiness, before pointing out that the service is free for contractors and teams with fewer than five remote employees.
Transparent Business was developed by KMGi (www.kmgi.com), a pioneering Internet technologies company whose client list includes Google, Microsoft, CA, Boeing, Pfizer, DuPont, and eBay.
