In this post, I will magnify the element of Innovation Inside BLACKbox (I I B) for the Maximization of Employees’ Productivity, which otherwise is a big challenge in the times of flipkart, snapdeal, of course with underlying common sense.

Adoption of IT results in compelling use of Internet and Software for business. The computers are business machines, as much are they entertainment machines.

What if you wake up
and realize that you actually need half of the people you have actually employed, to run your business, provided they are productive and efficient.

I indeed woke up
when I saw delivery-boys queuing up at the reception of Synersoft with personal consignments ordered by our own team members. Further,

The cafeteria at Synersoft was buzzing with cheerful claims of the great deals fished after a long surfing efforts.

That’s serious
, most SMEs are unaware of such reasons of unproductive and time pass activities claiming company’s payroll.

Following are the bitter questions, served by my common sense.

1. Do you know, to claim a good deal on e-stores, one ends up spending at least 3 hours?

2. Do you know, expensive software like autocad, solidworks, 3D and such engineering software can be used by employees for personal projects as part-time business, during office hours?

3. Do you know, most online trading software for shares and commodities require only Internet connectivity? Addicted employee may be distracted from work during the volatile market hours?

4. Do you know, chat and instant messengers claim 5 minutes of an addicted employee in every half an hour? They are called FOMO affected employees, who remain online with Fear Of Missing Out.

Following are the sweeter answers, served by innovations inside BLACKbox (I I B).

1. I I B can ration Internet access as per the job profile of employees. It also generates employee-wise productivity reports over Internet.

2. I I B can maintain employee-wise computer activity reports and can be played back as a slide show when required for audit.

3. I I B can offer unrestricted Internet access to all employees during pre-decided lunch hours or break hours and automatically turn off internet.

4. I I B can isolate enterprise data while employees are allowed Internet for doing personal work.

BLACKbox is emerging as a futuristic solution for SMEs to make them efficient and competitive.

Dear Enterprise Owner,

Presenting the fourth post of the series, on magnifying Elements of Innovation Inside BLACKbox (I I B).

Innovations are driven by common sense, We proved it in first three parts with focus on data preservation and information security, if you missed previous parts, here are they.

In this post, I will magnify the element of Innovation Inside BLACKbox (I I B) for the Minimization of Software Licensing Cost, by as much as 70 percent, of course with underlying common sense.

Adoption of IT results in procurement of servers, firewalls, desktops and laptops. There are hidden cost of ownership for these devices in terms of operating system licenses, client access licenses and productivity software licenses.

What if you wake up and realize that in order to use your server and computers, you are liable to pay much more than what you paid for the hardware? Nasty phone calls and legal threats make you loose your sleep.

That’s serious, most SMEs buy hardware and are completely ignorant about huge cost of software licenses.

Following are the bitter questions, served by my common sense.

1. Do you know, for each processor of your server, requires Server Operating System License?

2. Do you know, for each computer you use to connect the server, requires Client Access License?

3. Do you know, most popular word processor and spreadsheet you use, costs more than your computer CPU hardware?

2. I I B can save client access license for above stated purpose, as you do not need to use server

3. I I B is bundled with fully compliant word processor and spread sheet which minimizes your licensing cost by 80%

In this post, I will magnify the element of Innovation Inside BLACKbox (I I B) for the Defense from Cyber-Frauds, which are most serious challenges of future, of course with underlying common sense.

Adoption of IT results in exchanging sensitive information over emails. It also results in on line financial transactions.

What if you wake up and realize that your email system is hacked or your bank account is duped with lacs of Rs fraud?

That’s serious, most SMEs do not have well designed fraud prevention systems. They at the most, put a firewall, which is loosely configured and good for nothing.

Following are the bitter questions, served by my common sense.

1. Do you have any idea, your email can be hacked and your customer can be instructed to payments funds in defrauded bank accounts?

2. Do you know, your email id can be configured on mobile / tab / laptop / desktop of your competitor who can respond to your own inquiries?
