There’s an APP for that…

Learning and networking are two of the key hallmarks of membership in IECRM. On February 1st, we thoroughly enjoyed both at an event sponsored by IECRM partner simPRO at Bar Louie DTC. Attendees brought their smartphones and devices to learn tips and tricks to make their day more organized and efficient.

simPRO’s founder, Stephen Bradshaw, and our premier sponsor, welcomed members and partners. He shared that he had faced productivity challenges in finding a browser-based software suite capable of managing his complex business requirements. “I couldn’t find the one that provided the flexibility I needed so I decided to build my own,” Stephen said. He originally founded simPRO in 2002 while he was managing director of an electrical contracting business in Brisbane, Australia.

It was a fun way to share ideas, apps, and best practices through personal and professional ways that IECRM members and partners use on their smartphones to make their business and personal lives more productive. The learning and sharing spanned from data collection, record keeping, scheduling to health and wellness ideas as apps were downloaded and shared. Here are a few of the applications that were noted and recommended:
