Ever wonder why all the big #businessintelligence software providers have customer training?

stressed_2817739b

Seriously!?   Why do their partners and the companies themselves all have these $2,000 to $5,000 week long training course?  Get certified in using our software after spending 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of dollars on the software.  If your software is so good, can’t we just download and use it right away without a ton of time invested in trying to figure it out?

Software should be easy to use, not hard. Give Atlas Insights a try and find out what easy should be.

My #Startup software company is doing it different than everyone else and it works! #analytics

When I created Atlas Insights, I really decided it was important to rethink how businesses engage their employees in the use of important business metrics.  But it was more than that.  It was also how software should be designed, developed and sold.  That is why Atlas Insights is so different from any software vendor claiming to have a mobile business intelligence solution.
  • We don’t have hundreds of employees building the software, we didn’t need that.
  • We don’t have huge marketing departments to get the word out, our customers do that.
  • We don’t have hundreds of sales people calling on every account pressuring you to purchase, we don’t believe in that.
  • We don’t have large investors that keep driving us for hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, we live within our means.
  • While our competitors are not sustainable on hundreds of thousands users, our business is sustainable on a just a few thousand customers.

I built Atlas Insights to be a better solution than any of the big public or privately VC funded software companies.  On a per user basis, we are pennies a day while they are hundreds or thousands of dollars a day.
While they sell their software based on you finding a gold nugget in the mountains some day, Atlas Insights helps all of your employees get focused on what’s important to your business today, which is an investment that returns value every minute of every day.

You will not find a simpler solution to use and the value you get for the money

Why do it again? Because I want to do it Better! #startup #businessintelligence

nuts.PNG

Ever since I launched Atlas Insights, I’ve been asked “why are you doing this again?”  A little history.  In the 2008, I created a mobile business intelligence product that was first available on Windows CE and Blackberry and then moved it to iPhone and Android.  We sold our product to some great companies and enjoy our limited success until that business was acquired by a major software company.

After leaving that company, I decided to dabble in doing data visualizations in VR/AR which was pretty amazing, but basically there is no one out there buying VR software, so I parked that IP for now.  When I was doing some training being a developer again, I decided to test some decisions we made in my past mobilebi software whether they were right or wrong.  I found some interesting answers going through that process.  Then I wanted to rethink how software companies SHOULD be developed and sold over the next 5 years.

Atlas Insights is a completely different company/app from what I’ve created in the past.

  1. I decided to re-think how a software business should be built and run for the next 5 to 10 years. Basically, I threw out all the ways we have learned in our business and MBA classes and started-a-new.
  2. I wanted to build the solution in 6 months instead of 2 years.
  3. I wanted to build the app myself. I did hire a part-time person to help me with the web services api, but this app was basically all designed and developed by me.
  4. This app is available for iOS, Android, Windows, Web and OSX so that all platforms are covered. So, no matter what experience you are looking for, we have it covered on your favorite device.
  5. I wanted to mix your private business data with public metrics sources too. Public metrics have an effect on your business and it is important to have those metrics available wherever you are.
  6. At-Scale. The power of the cloud allows me to be global with very little effort.
  7. I wanted it to sell itself. With the power of social media and your network, you should be able to generate a good customer base.
  8. Love those customers closely. I listen and help as much as I can because those customers are the BEST sales people.
  9. Manage the costs so low that a mobile business intelligence product costs dollars a month and not thousands.
  10. I wanted to do it better based on my decisions in the past.

Can you really build a large business just yourself?  That is basically what I am doing today.  No, I didn’t have to raise millions of dollars.  No, I didn’t have to hire 20 developers.  No, I didn’t have to hire a fleet of sales people.  No, I don’t have a team of marketing professionals.  No, I didn’t have to spend thousands and thousands on hardware and software to get going.

I did this!
