Are you thinking of developing a new line of business?

So you’ve got a great opportunity to start up a new line of business and you know there is a market for this, it’s quite similar to the kind of services you provide now to your customers. So getting things off the ground should be fairly straightforward right?

Actually this is a lot harder than it would seem; defining, developing and delivering a new product or service never really ends and that’s if you get it right first time! One of the main reasons for failure is that processes and systems aren’t there to support your “new baby” and before you know it another company has filled the gap in the market and the great idea you had gets side-lined or shelved. (Ok I’m simplifying things massively, but that’s what I like to do)

On so many occasions I’ve heard; “We have to get the system to accept..” or “We’re missing the interfaces to make this happen..” or “The system we have will just not work the way you want it to work” or “It’s not quite that simple, we’d have to upgrade..” or “I’ll speak to the software guys but its not going to be cheap!..”  All of this while a company races against time to launch a new offering. If you analyse this, simply put, your processes and more importantly your systems have let you down. Defining draft processes is quite straightforward but overlaying them onto your operational systems could quite easily put you into an early grave.

Two years ago our new baby fissara was born and as I said above the 3D’s will never really end but just become a cycle that you get used to. If you can imagine the Forth Road Bridge analogy you won’t be far wrong and the reason for this is simple; we have created a platform that has begun to, and will continue to turn the software industry on its head by giving you the ability to define, deploy and deliver an efficient software solution built on your new processes in just a few hours (but how can this be true? I hear you gasp, ).

Whats the Secret?

Well the secret is this. Every module in fissara is configurable by you! You don’t have to ask us to develop a new form or process or customer parameter or mobile application it’s already there in the system ready for you to mould to fit like a glove around your new baby. Honestly you wont believe how easy we’ve made it!

I love that theatrical “Ladies and Gentlemen.. Tada!” moment when I sit and create right “before your very eyes” a new process, attach that to an activity, schedule an engineer, who receives a job, then completes a task and captures data on a Smartphone which is sent back to the cloud to be emailed to who ever I decided would receive it only seconds earlier.

fissara actually enables you to enter that new line of business and be the first to plug that gap in the market while you shake a defiant fist at the naysayers who told you your systems and process can not adapt quickly enough to deliver that opportunity.

In 24hrs fissara launches on Growthdeck

After 6 months of searching weve now settled on Growthdeck to partner with us to raise investment and grow our business.

It’s been a rollercoaster journey that’s taken us a few times round the funding merry-go-round and given us a bumpy ride on the dodgems and left us sometimes, feeling a little sick. We’ve met some interesting people along the way, some who’ll continue to help us as we grow.

Where one journey ends another one starts. The start line for this happens to be at the OXO Tower in London on Wednesday 27th Jan where over 200 people will gather to take a look at what we’ve turned our company into and achieved over the last few years. Lets hope this journey is as exciting as the last one….

Our most powerful release yet…

Hot off the press – Fissara 1.2 is here!

We’ve added a whole host of new features to fissara and formul8 which will make the job of capturing data even easier…

We believe we have the most intuitive and powerful data capture tools on the market today!

After listening to our customers we’ve been busy creating new features that have put much more flexibility into capturing and viewing data.

5 KEY NEW FEATURES IN 1.2;

Repeating sections and questions – When you’re designing a form you can allow the mobile user to duplicate parts of the form in the mobile app as and when they need to, so if you’re surveying a site and its grown from 1 floor to 10, you can add another floor on the fly.

Adding notes – Each section now has a field where you can put guide notes or any information you want the mobile user to see when they fill in the form, this cuts down on training and structuring long winded questions to make sure the answer is what you’re expecting.

Adding text to captured images – Not only can you draw and sketch on the images you capture on site you can now add text too. We’ve created a really simple to use tool that lets the picture do the talking.

Pinpoint completed forms – We’ve enhanced the Search and View functions online, it’s now possible to search a date range and view and export collected data in 4 different ways; Online, Microsoft Word/Excel and Adobe PDF.

Mobile Apps facelift – Well it was time to push the boundaries of our app design again so we’ve taken lots the latest Android standards and built them into our beautiful apps. There are new ways to see jobs in fissara and a great slidey menu that keeps the things tidy with more room to work.


We’re taking the P out of Project Management!

We’re all set to release “Project Centre” as a new module in Fissara.

Removing the “P’ is no mean feat, taking the Pain away helps, removing the Protracted Processes and Piles of Paperwork took some doing and prising out Poor Planning nearly finished us off.

Project Centre will help you put all your tasks, jobs, teams and trades in the same place and add a layer of automation which ensures things get done when they need to, by those who need to do it and letting you know when everything is running like clockwork or not.

“It seemed the next logical step to the evolution of Fissara to add a project management element. Were already managing jobs, task, people, skills, assets and processes so linking this all together under Project Centre builds a bigger smarter solution and puts us way ahead in the Total Operational Management space” #TOM
