On smart growth

seattle-from-alkiThe tech world (and tech press) often focus on the Silicon Valley-centric world of huge VC-backed startups. And there is a good reason for that — a lot of those kinds of companies do interesting, innovative things. But as Farhad Manjoo recently wrote in The New York Times, there is another, often less reported, less traditional, and less glamourous way to build a business.

In his story on Mailchimp, Manjoo writes:

“In fact, it’s possible to create a huge tech company without taking venture capital, and without spending far beyond your means. It’s possible, in other words, to start a tech company that runs more like a normal business than a debt-fueled rocket ship careening out of control. Believe it or not, start-ups don’t even have to be headquartered in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.”

Coordinate your collaboration to unlock better business file sharing

One of the best pieces of fashion advice (stay with me) I ever got was: your shoes should match your belt which should match your watch. Coordinate all three to make a more polished look. The same could be said for your business file sharing, which is why we offer awesome branding tools such as customization, whitelabeling and custom domains. When you activate all three, you unlock the most professional, polished version of your business collaboration that will be more efficient and impress any client or customer. Read More…

The paperless office is finally coming

According to a weekend story in The Wall Street Journal (subscription required), after decades of promise, we may be finally on the verge of a truly paperless office! Maybe. Not right away — but soon!

Quoting research from InfoTrends, the Journal writes:

For the first time in history, there is a steady decline of about 1% to 2% a year in office use of paper. Add in the dip in use during the most recent recession, and as of 2016, we are already 10% below the peak of the number of pages produced by office printing and copying in 2007.

The Journal attributes this erosion in paper use to the rise of mobile devices and e-signature services. And though they don’t mention them specifically — cloud services like Onehub have certainly done their part to decrease the reliance on paper.

Edmunds puts the brakes on meetings (like us!)

onehub_meeting_roomWe were tickled to read a Wall Street Journal article about how Edmunds.com has instituted a reduced meetings policy (subscription required). Dubbed “Thinking Thursdays,” it’s an attempt by the car website to restrict the number of hours spent in meetings and free up creativity. To that we say, welcome to the club!

As our CEO wrote last year, Onehub is pretty aggressive in limiting the number of formal meetings we hold. Too often they are a time waster, and we can get more done by:

  • Operating lean, thereby reducing layers of management
  • Using fantastic collaboration tools like Slack (and — ahem — Onehub)
  • Having an open floor plan that facilitates efficient communication across teams

If you and your business are stuck in a never-ending cycle of meetings, consider scheduling some of them for the first of never. It could free up not just your time, but your mind as well.
