New online service gives teams a massive productivity
Research over the last decade has shown that
businesses that require staff to complete brief weekly status reports are significantly more
productive than those who don't.
MIAMI -- Feb. 21, 2011 -- A brand new online
service called Weekly Debrief, takes this idea to a whole new level by completely automating the
whole process in such a way that it makes the writing and submission of weekly status reports quick
and easy, rather than tedious and time consuming.
'Our aim was to take the tried and tested concept
of weekly status reports and reinvent it for the twenty-first century" says Paul Smithson, founder
of Weekly Debrief.
'We know from our own experience what an amazingly
effective tool weekly status reports are, but we wanted to make the whole system fully-automated by
making good use of the technology that is available to us in today's
Weekly Debrief is totally web-based, and there are
plans to have accompanying apps for all the major mobile platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android
and Blackberry. The first of these to be released will be the iPhone and iPad apps, which are due
out in Spring 2011.
'In todays frantic business world we felt it was
crucial that managers could have instant access to weekly status reports whenever, and wherever
they happened to be. With the Weekly Debrief system they can check on their teams progress in just
a few seconds whilst enjoying a cappuccino, or whilst waiting in-line for a flight' says Paul
In addition to the weekly status reporting
features, there is also an extensive list of additional features such as the ability to broadcast a
message to some, or all of your team, graphical trend analysis that helps you to understand who is
submitting what and when, and the ability to customize when and how your team members will receive
requests for information.
The Weekly Debrief system is currently available
free of charge, so if you’d like to give your team, or even your whole business, a real
productivity boost now is the ideal time. You can find out more by going to
