One Vendor’s Mission to Make Service Businesses Click - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog series introduced ClickSoftware Technologies (NASDAQ: CKSW), which until recently has focused solely on workforce and service optimization software solutions for large field service companies.

Consequently, the company exceeded the goals it set for this partnership both in 2009 and 2010. Additionally, what I really like about the company is that it recognizes its shortcomings and has been addressing them (instead of being defensive or in denial). The relationships with SAP, IBM, and Microsoft Dynamics help with regards to ClickSoftware Read More

The Importance of the White Paper and What It Can Do for You


The white paper—a wonderful little piece of literature chock full of thought provoking insight and informative prose—got its start many years ago, long before there were computers in every office and home around the world.

Can Technology Make CFO's and Controller’s Jobs More Strategic? - Part 1


While setting down the thoughts for my recent “SaaSy discussion” blog series To SaaS or Not: Is that a Question?, something else related to software as a service (SaaS) and on-demand applications crossed my mind.

Managing Risks, Managing Measures: Decision Support Methodologies in Business Part 2 : Decision Aids


Though many academic methods exist, few actually reach the audience they need to reach because of the barrier between academic and business languages, as well as the ability to produce workable and usable tools.

Winning your market - with "dumb" questions


Positioning Part 3: Why we should love dumb questionsPart 2 was about the choices to consider when formulating your campaign positioning—now we’ll see why those initial choices are probably wrong.

So, Tell Me a Little Bit About Yourself


If you know nothing about a company, you should be able to figure out the bare essentials by visiting its About Us page, right? Turns out this is only true sometimes. When visiting the Digg website, for example. The first line on Digg’s About page is this: "Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web." Neat, huh?
