SingleStone’s Product Expertise

We live in a world of immediacy.  Do you want a very-berry peanut butter smoothie?  Just click “yes” on your favorite mobile app, and it will be at your doorstep in 30 minutes or less.    

So why in this world of instant gratification do we waste countless hours in our work day tracking down and stitching together the most basic of answers? 

Uncomplicate your work day.

By 2025 almost three quarters (72.6 percent) of internet users will access the web solely via their smartphones.  That is nearly 3.7 billion people!  A staggering 75 Billion devices will be connected to the web by that same time and yet C-suite executives are still wrestling with how to get accurate data on their people out of their core management systems. 

Your work day is complicated enough.  Getting the answers you need shouldn’t be that hard. The reality is that most of the information that leaders, managers and teams seek is locked up in specific, disconnected work reports and Excel spreadsheets. 

  • How many open positions do I have right now?   
  • What are my people working on?   
  • Are they working on the highest priorities?   
  • What skill gaps do we have?   

These questions and many others like them can sideline your decisions, delay your vision and slow your business. 

Finally, a product that keeps pace.

Businesses move at the speed of now,  transforming faster than ever before.  Sadly though, most transformations fail because they don’t focus on the most important element: people.   We don’t just build software to run – we build it to connect people to win the race.

Whether you are a product owner, portfolio owner, HR leader, or a marketing, IT, or operations executive, our family of products is built from the ground up to connect you directly to your teams and the work they do.  

The future of work is teams – teams collaborating on a massive scale.  So why, in an increasingly connected world where we value individuals and interactions over processes and tools, are we stuck in 1980s hierarchy-based reporting?   

Yes, software should do that.

Shouldn’t software be able to trace how work gets done without relying on Microsoft Excel to look up finance cost centers and HR organizational charts? 

Shouldn’t big data flow freely through a system so I can see instantly where I have vacancies in my workforce, what skills those vacancies represent and where we are against our plan to fill those roles?    

Shouldn’t we be able to see where delivery is impeded because the teams are reporting a dependency?  

We think so. Reach out to learn more about our solutions.
