Today, we get into the meat and potatoes of Decision.io. We are going to go into the full submission and take a look at our core features including rating, commenting, note taking, and ranking. This is where the organization that Decision.io adds to the online submission management and group decision-making process becomes apparent.
If you’re joining in on our series of product feature posts for the first time, I recommend you take a look at some of the posts below.
In today’s post, I am going to show you how to import your online submissions into Decision.io for review. Today’s example assumes you are importing from .CSV and therefore not using our Wufoo integration.
You will be amazed by how easy it is to go from an intimidating spreadsheet to a user friendly online submission review environment.
If you’re new here, you may want to browse the following links to get caught up in this Decision.io walk through series.
The gut decision divides decision makers everywhere. Some decision makers swear that their gut can do them no wrong and that pouring over data sets and applying decision models is busy work. Others demand a more rigorous approach to decision making and dismiss gut decisions as a viable strategy altogether.
Well, it depends. Sometimes, making a quick decision based on your gut is the best approach. Other times, you put yourself at risk by failing to collect and analyze relevant data before making a final decision. So, let’s take a closer look at when you should and shouldn’t trust your gut decision. Continue reading →
Wufoo is an easy to use drag and drop form builder and we integrate with it! For those of you collecting and reviewing online submissions and applications, that means that every time someone submits an application using your Wufoo form, all of that data is automatically imported, organized and ready for review within Decision.io. For an integration so powerful, it’s amazing how easy it is!
If you’re here for the first time, welcome! You may want to browse the three posts that precede this one. I’ve provided a link to each of those below for your convenience.
Now that we’re on the same page, let’s dive head first into this Wufoo integration, shall we? The word “integration” is much more intimidating than the actual process of integrating, I promise. Continue reading →
A recent Inc. article titled, Why B2B Startups Are Suddenly So Sexy, declared that B2B software companies are finally being seen as sexy by some investors. That’s all well and good. However, the biggest issue has never been investors failing to perceive the allure of a meaty B2B solution. Afterall, great B2B companies tend to generate revenue before a major round of funding anyway!
The real problem is that people looking to start a B2B company and people who have already started one don’t think they themselves are sexy. They look longingly at their B2C comrades. Their Twitter followings are in the thousands. They are getting covered on all of the major tech sites. Their blogs are littered with comments. Every slight tweak to the app is met with praise from the young and hip around the world.
B2B software companies would probably describe their company as producing something useful, practical, and better than what is currently being used. But definitely not sexy.
Well fellow B2B software companies and those aspiring to join the ranks, I am going to help you hold your head up a little higher around those boastful B2C’s!
In a great post by Jesse Rodgers of TribeHR, he mentioned the importance of identifying performance metrics for your startup incubator. This can help to determine how effective the startup incubator is (or isn’t). At the core of his message is measuring certain performance metrics at the application, in program (accepted), and out of program (graduated) stages and everywhere in between. In this post, we will show how Decision.io can serve a secondary function of tracking startup incubator success.
Today’s post is a little different from the others…
We’re officially announcing the Decision.io mobile application that will work on your smartphone and tablet!
It allows the reviewer to carry out all of their main responsibilities such as reviewing online applications, giving overall ratings and/or individual ratings for each piece of decision criteria, and to read and write internal and external comments.
Pretty awesome, eh?
You know what else is awesome? You have access to this right now! So log in, and I’ll take you through the application!
It is no secret that our world is rapidly becoming more complex, fast-paced, and globally connected. As a result of this change, teams are faced with the challenge of making mission critical decisions that involve a wealth of data, the evaluation of a number of viable alternatives, and the consideration of potential risks that may arise in the distant future. Add the fact that these types of decisions often require a group of people with diverse skill sets to work together, fostering what is known as “collective intelligence”, and the decision-making process becomes increasingly difficult.
This would all be fine if we weren’t so ill-equipped to deal with our modern world and the challenges it presents to our organizations in the context of complex decision making!
