Having built and run a successful IT company for 20 years, Steve Rich (Investor Apps Pty Ltd CEO) recognised that small business people are faced with numerous decisions every day - choosing suppliers, picking an office or store location, selecting between job candidates, deciding which bank to use, selecting service providers, deciding whether to lease or buy premises, plant and equipment - the list is endless.
Rich recognised that current mobile technology could provide those processes and bring a simple structure and confidence to the constant decision-making required to run a successful business.
With templates provided to cover the most regular decisions, a few simple steps then customise the model to reflect the most important factors for each situation. Results are displayed graphically, ranking the alternatives according to the criteria most relevant for the business.
When similar decisions arise in the future, previous decision models can be re-used and amended for new circumstances, thus continually speeding up and improving the quality of the decision-making process.
Outside of work, these same principles are applied to more personal choices such as where to live, which house to buy, whether to rent or buy, where to go for vacation, what to name your baby or pet, who to vote for - whatever situations require a choice between alternatives and involving several deciding factors.
Most popular websites and apps used to search for property, cars, flights and hotels leave users with a short list or "favourites"
