Chris White MP visits Share
We were delighted to welcome Chris White MP into the Realtime Knowledge offices for a guided tour of Share, our exciting new task management and workflow platform.
It’s fantastic for businesses like ours to have such support. As both our local MP and a member of the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, Chris is a great ally to the entire local technology industry.
After he met the team, he was keen to see Share in action. We were able to show him how it has helped clients such as Birmingham Airport transform essential and routine workflow procedures, cutting out wasteful paperwork and administration. These real life examples, together with our work with Warwick Business School, allows us to demonstrate in very real terms what the savings and benefits Share can bring with its intelligent tools, realtime reporting and accountability.
We discussed our experiences talking to large organisations managing mountains of paper - and how we are trying to transform long established Operations cultures, and the lightbulb moment when clients see just what can be achieved in a short space of time.
We even showed him how quickly and easily it can be tailored to a client’s needs by creating a special ‘Houses of Parliament’ version to manage the progress of Bills, culminating in the ‘assign task to HM The Queen.’ Who knows, the House of Commons could be paperlite in no time! He told us;
I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve seen here today. Very polished presentation and a lot of work has been put into understanding the customers’ business and I can see the advantages that have been given to the customer.- Chris White, M.P.
Chris is heading back to Parliament after the Conservative Party Conference this week, where he’ll be looking at issues such as productivity and the digital economy.
“It’s incredible to represent a town where the second floors are business representing the cutting edge of information and technology sector.”
Hopefully we have given him some further food for thought.
