Great leaders don’t leave their people in the dark. Just ask Max Levchin, PayPal’s cofounder and CEO of Affirm, Inc., who believes in “getting the best out of your team” to stand out as a honcho. And why not? After all, winning is about great leadership — which entails teamwork — and teamwork is about ensuring that every team member has a role to play in the journey to success.
As a leader, how do you bring out the best in your team? Our CEO and Founder, Frank Zamani, believes in empowering individuals, leveraging their strengths and providing the right tools so they can be more effective in their jobs. That’s why he has been working for over 15 years on his vision of a code-free application development platform to enable business professionals bring their unique ideas to fruition. And that’s why Caspio is here today.
To equip you on your journey to success, we’ve created these productivity applications to help you and your team work your best to get your business ahead to the finish line.
Knowing your goals within your organization is important to stay focused on what you need to achieve so you can fulfill your long-term vision. According to a study by Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, “you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down on a regular basis.”
You can take this step a bit further by using Caspio’s Goal Tracker to list the specific goals for your team, update their status accordingly and generate reports to track the progress of your goals. The application can also help minimize the effort put on other tasks deemed unimportant, saving you a lot of time and reminding you to work on what really matters.
Of course, for every goal set, there are specific activities you need to perform to achieve it. And wouldn’t it be easier to accomplish these activities when you have a to-do list handy? Aside from reminding you of what you need to do for the day, having a to-do list helps you organize your priorities and set your attention on vital tasks, helping you stay productive as you remain focused on what you need to do.
This is what Caspio’s Team To-Do List application does. It organizes tasks so you can add projects, assign them to your team members and enable your team to view and work on their assigned tasks easily.
Task Management, on the other hand, gives you control over your tasks and priorities. Using this application, you can generate reports, update work status and track the progress of your projects. It is essential if you want to meet deadlines and maintain work quality at the same time.
Have you ever had to spend so much time searching for an available meeting room or looking for a piece of equipment? These time-consuming situations can limit your output and drain you for the rest the day. But Caspio’s Resource Scheduling application can help you easily search for and reserve available facilities and office equipment that are shared within your company. Since it’s cloud-based, it can be accessed anytime and anywhere, helping you save time and energy in dealing with these resources.
A company’s Human Resources Team tackles a multitude of applicant activities — from sifting through numerous resumes to scheduling and conducting interviews and evaluations, which often make recruitment work taxing and time-consuming. To facilitate the tasks of a hiring manager, Caspio designed the Recruiting Management application to simplify the overall hiring process by enabling users to easily add new applicants, upload resumes, manage and update the list of current candidates, post thousands of jobs and many others.
The simplified version of this application is the Job Applicant Tracking System, which eliminates the manual process of updating the list of jobs and applicants. It also allows users to easily evaluate candidates based on status and ratings.
If your team’s job description is to interface customers or clients, you can use the Contact Management application to help your team manage their list of contacts and remain on track with tasks. With this applicaton, you can change the status of each contact and create notes. A follow-up date is also visible so you can make the necessary task updates before your set deadline.
