Innovation today is non-negotiable; no business can stay the same and expect to stay safe.
“Digital disruption is coming; delaying action isn’t an option.” (McKinsey.com).
What is your strategy to survive? Where will you be in 3, 5, 10 years’ time?
“Incumbents can become the digital innovators.”
Realestate.com.au caused agencies to flourish, despite forces threatening to bypass ‘middle man’ agents.
Flight agencies & booking platforms reduced direct customer interaction but actually increased sales to airlines.
E-commerce between providers can enable established brands to collectively outpace the digital disruption.
You need your individual staff at the centre of your sales strategy!
You also need a digital business model for meeting demand with supply, cutting out inefficiencies, enabling you to accelerate and compete on price and quality.
Care Person is a business-to-business platform, enabling you to collaborate with the network of providers you want to work with, and enabling you to meet a growing demand for your brand, coordinating the care personnel of any service provider within your network, under your banner.
1. For providers – not independent individuals! – Enabling 2-way brokerage of your services
2. For the public – not another directory! – Enabling real-time booking of your care personnel.
