Every year millions of individuals declare: "This year will be different. This is the year I will accomplish life-changing goals." These individuals create a list of resolutions along the lines of losing weight, spending more time with family and other noble causes. When truly implemented, resolutions really do make a meaningful, positive impact.

It makes sense to also apply the tradition of making New Year's Resolutions to business. Looking at flaws in business operations and resolving to improve them leads to monumental improvements. Interneer has compiled a list of the top 5 resolutions every business should make for 2007.

5. Develop New Business Contacts/Relationships

4. Acquire and Retain First Class Human Resources

3. Keep Ahead of the Competition

2. Reduce Costs

1. Increase Efficiency


5. Develop New Business Contacts/Relationships

There is no all-encompassing solution to reach all 5 of these goals. Interneer Intellect, however, certainly can make a significant impact.

Take #5 for example. I'm sorry folks, no software program, even the most advanced chat and online meeting solutions rival developing relationships face-to-face. It is often difficult to meet new people. Resolve to visit at least one networking event per month, and to catch up with old business associates you may be loosing touch with. You will be surprised to see how much impact having "connections" really makes. Interneer Intellect can help you store contact information and schedule meetings.

4. Acquire and Retain First Class Human Resources.

As the economy grows, baby boomers retire and college degrees are becoming too pricey for today's youth, acquiring and retaining top-of-the-line individuals is a challenge for even the most respected companies. Resolve to celebrate the success of current employees by offering them not only a magnetizing work environment no one would want to leave, but also the salary to match. Your business depends on retaining high-quality employees. Interneer Intellect's Human Resources Management configuration streamlines recruiting, hiring and managing employees.

3. Keep Ahead of the Competition

Experts agree competition will be fiercer than ever in 2007. Resolve to make your products or services the most enticing available. The first step requires researching the offerings of your competition. Managing all this information can be overwhelming. Interneer Intellect's Competition Information Tracking Template makes the process easy as cake.

2. Reduce Costs

Reducing costs without jeopardizing quality can be a struggle. Automating processes, however, promises financial gains through better asset management. Resolve to tack where your money really is being used. Interneer Intellect's resource management capabilities track every penny, without limiting funds where they are truly needed.

1. Increase Efficiency

Increasing efficiency is 2007's number one business resolution. In today's modern world, collaboration is delayed when not made as simple and convenient as possible. Resolve to create policies allowing employees to save time in co-dependent environments. Waiting for approvals, adhering to corporate policies and confirming task completions become frivolous activities when not followed-up by others. Interneer Intellect automates business processes by allowing end-users to define custom workflows and interlinked project management applications.
