Revolutionising business management

After spending more than two decades in business, you get pretty savvy with the inner workings of business management. You understand the software systems that are available, and how they work. And you also understand where the gaps are.

I’ve dedicated a lot of time to exploring solutions that could transform management processes into something more manageable and sustainable. Here’s what I’ve learned in the relentless quest for efficiency, and how I made the pivotal discovery that launched the digital revolution of IndyForms.

Identifying the problems

Regardless of the sector, most businesses face similar challenges in their management processes. In my experience, these challenges include adapting to constant changes in staff and consultants, maintaining control over systems and processes, and tracking who has done what and when with documents.

Consultants and staff come and go. The pandemic certainly didn’t help, but in what’s been aptly termed ‘The Great Resignation’, statistics show that the turnover rate for employees is at its highest since 2012, with workers staying only 2-3 years in their roles when they used to commit most of their working life. Even businesses with high retention rates need to manage long service, maternity, and personal leave. No matter the cause, frequent workforce changes can significantly disrupt productivity and continuity.

The shift to digital has its own set of challenges. Many businesses struggle with maintaining control over evolving systems and processes, and ensuring accuracy in documentation that passes through many digital hands without a clear timeline of what’s been changed and when. Added to this, and accelerated by the pandemic, is the massive shift towards remote work, intensifying the challenges of managing a distributed workforce.

Businesses now more than ever need a comprehensive business management solution that not only integrates diverse processes and systems, but also facilitates seamless collaboration, ensures clear documentation tracking, and adapts flexibly to the dynamic workforce landscape.

The vision and the mission

IndyForms was conceptualised to address these challenges – not just as another tool, but as a comprehensive solution that integrates all your vital documents and forms into one central, easily accessible location. Our vision was to create a platform that not only consolidates documents but also provides robust version control and permissions, simplifying management in the face of staff changes and system complexities. And, to ensure this platform included advanced automations that could streamline routine tasks and reduce manual errors, freeing up valuable time and resources.

This vision became my mission. For the last 18 months, my hours have been split between fatherhood and the development of what I believe is a revolution in business management technology.

Together with a dedicated team of developers and product specialists, I’ve been locked in a cycle of design, development, beta testing, bug fixing, refining, and repeating. This loop, though exhausting, is essential, and it’s been our beat for nearly two years.

We committed to innovation in solving the problems and plugging the gaps of existing systems, working to deliver the solutions that we couldn’t find anywhere else. A partnership with a major organisation allowed us to put our platform through the paces, and the feedback was incredibly affirming. We finally reached the point of our launch, and introduced our creation to the world.

The vision became a reality. We delivered IndyForms, a comprehensive digital solution that completely transforms business management and workflows with automation, customisability, user-friendly interfaces, and next-level safety and security.

What the revolution looks like

IndyForms isn’t just a product. It offers a new way of working that helps businesses not only adapt to the challenges of modern management, but to emerge as a formidable player against competitors in their markets. It doesn’t promise a solution by forcing businesses into an uncomfortable, ill-fitting mould. It empowers them to build their processes exactly as they need them to be.

With fully customisable settings, businesses can build professionally branded, fit-for-purpose forms in minutes—from scratch, from templates in IndyForms’ library, or with its embedded AI-form builder that creates them from plain language commands. They’re then stored on secure Australian servers, in a centralised location with high-level encrypted security, version control, and adjustable permissions to ensure the right people have access when they need it.

With completely paperless workflows, IndyForms eliminates the need for expensive, time-consuming paper-based systems, reducing administrative loads by so much that our clients are saving immeasurable amounts of time and countless dollars that are normally wasted on consumables. It streamlines workflows with digital solutions like eSignatures, full integration with online communication, notifications and reminders, and automations to deliver higher levels of efficiency, accuracy, and compliance.

For the last 18 months, it’s been a whirlwind of innovation and hard work. But the result? A tool that promises to reshape how we think about and manage our businesses.
