Greens on Screens is a local café, bar and indoor golf simulator. Greens on Screens allow a Golfer to play at a fraction of the time and cost of playing on a Golf course. There is no time commitment required to hit a few golf balls or even to play 9 holes, making it ideal for practice and group play. Enjoy a lunch break with a meal at the café and some swings at the virtual driving range and then be back at the office refreshed for the rest of the day.
There are many aspects to Greens on Screens’ business. From café & bar to golf simulator training to events and even simulator machine sales, their diverse business range means that paperwork is often a concern. Being a small team they often have to spend lots of time out of the office. Important paperwork such as finances, food and beverage orders, inventory, billings, employee records are usually spread out over various individual laptops and often can’t be accessed readily on the move.
Even if documents are emailed across, the copy that was most recently emailed is usually not the most updated copy. This means that a lot of time is wasted synchronizing files across all the different users.
Document security can also be an issue with having multiple users on a single terminal. With confidential records such as employee records on file, keeping files on a shared computer terminal is not advisable. However, often the situation may not be helped due to limited resources.
Productivity Solution Lies In the Clouds
m9’s cloud-based document management system, Oystor, is capable of loading various file types online, allowing access to view and/or edit files across any geography. This can range from office documents and spreadsheets to audio files and digital photos.
This allows the Greens on Screens team to share their important documents and inventory updates seamlessly between their storefront and the backend office without the need for their own storage server. They are able to update and send off order forms to suppliers even when on the move. Folders and tags make searching for specific records simple and fast.
Order forms can be sent directly to suppliers via Oystor and if any changes are required, the forms can be updated and the supplier notified of all changes. This doesn’t just apply to their suppliers. Collaborative tools mean that all staff can be up to date on the latest promotions and event details and be able to update them with threaded notes so that all changes are audited.
Oystor uses a 256-bit encryption which means that all access to files and information stored in Oystor is safely secured. This makes using Oystor over public networks safe and easy for anyone who is on the move.
“The site is well laid out, so uploading files and pictures is very easy to organize. It was easy for me to find and share files when I need to. It’s simple to use, which is always helpful to quickly learn all the features. The fast connection meant that I didn’t have to wait while large files get uploaded.”
Oystor Is the Smarter Secure Choice
They say that time is money, but time can be much more valuable than money. Especially if the time saved from doing menial tasks such as managing information to and from various parties can be better utilized focusing on one’s business.
As a start-up, Greens on Screens, was not just able to save on time but also costs. Having a web-based service to handle file hosting and sharing is much more cost-effective than setting up and maintaining a file server system with someone to administrate it. Keeping all parties up to date is made easier with the threaded commenting system that keeps everyone in the loop on all changes to documents.
Having the system hosted on the cloud means that no matter where or when, you just need an Internet connection to access all the most updated files that you will need. The secure connection to the server means that all the files are securely accessed and that even if one is on a public network, all the data is protected.
