The new ClearSteps Cloud service level provides a simple, mobile interface to assign, remind and review activities that support business goals. With the powerful mobile app, opportunities for growth are turned into action faster.

Get More Done with ‘Closed Loop’ Tasks

Business owners identify multiple opportunities to improve their business each day. Oftentimes, these opportunities are often not acted upon is because there is no uniform solution to reliably assign these tasks to the right person in the organization. Additionally, when these tasks do get assigned, they are often communicated informally (verbal/text/ email). These type of assignments offer no formal follow up and create an ‘open loop’. “Open loop” assignments are frequently lost or abandoned.

ClearSteps solves this problem by effectively assigning, reminding and monitoring the status of every task – thus, making it easy to “close the loop”. Close looped systems are more effective in getting tasks done. In today’s hyper competitive business environment, great execution separates leading organizations from the pack. ClearSteps provides the execution edge.

According to Co-Founder and SaaS industry veteran Matthew Smith, “There are many business solutions in the marketplace for teams today, but ClearSteps is unique in its focus on simply getting work done. We like to say that ClearSteps is less ’chit-chat’ and more ‘did that.’“

More Valuable Benefits of ClearSteps

In addition to the core focus on strategic execution, the new service level offers more ways to help owners grow their businesses’. These benefits include:

  • At-a-glance status updates
  • Group Assignments
  • Unlimited How To Guides

The Simple Idea Behind ClearSteps

high achieversHigh achievers dedicate significant time and energy optimizing their daily activities. They use time management strategies, create daily routines, keep personal checklists and more. Top achievers are constantly on the look out for ways to improve their lives. In the US, over $549 million worth of self help books are sold each year. However, these performance hacks have historically been reserved only for those that seek them out.

“Wouldn’t it be great if your entire team developed the habits of high achievers?”

This is the idea behind ClearSteps.

The ClearSteps app offers an exciting new way for each employee to maximize their effectiveness at work.

You may wonder – will focusing on my employee’s habits make a difference to my bottom line? The research says yes, but for a more personal insight, answer this question: If every employee executed their role perfectly every day, how much would your business improve? 10%, 20%, 50%, 100%? At every one of these levels your business grows substantially.

ClearSteps ensures your employees are always focused and prepared to get the job done right. The end result is perfect execution across your team.

“The ‘time tested’ checklist is, quite simply, best way to get things done.”

The Simple IdeaChecklists

The ClearSteps system is centered around the checklist. The ‘time tested’ checklist is, quite simply, the best way to get things done.

With ClearSteps, each employee is presented with personalized to do lists customized to their role.   These checklists become the foundation upon which success habits are defined, executed and improved.

Most businesses already use checklists in a variety of forms – some are on paper, some on computers, some only in people’s heads. However, there is very little structure to these lists across a company and rarely a documented performance history.

The aim of ClearSteps is to revolutionize the way teams interact with these lists. The ClearSteps platform provides a central location for all of your company’s checklists to be managed and their results reviewed.

“The sky’s the limit for innovation and growth once the foundation of perfect execution is set.”

Slow DownSlow Down

No too long ago “multi-tasking”, “collaboration” and “all nighters” were badges of honor for high performing companies. However, this no longer the case.

When the accelerator was pushed to the floor, teams often become stretched beyond capacity. Then, as  ‘Collaboration overload’ takes hold, thoughtful leaders begin to see how little productivity actually increased. It is now clearly understood that the concept of “multi-tasking” is a myth. “Excessive collaboration” with increased meetings and communications has proved inefficient at best. And lastly, the adverse physical and mental impact of sleep deprivation is now painfully understood.

Businesses, much like individual high achievers, are searching for better ways to perform.  One way to increase productivity is to actually slow down. Slowing down is truly the best way to speed up. Businesses that “slowed down to speed up” improve their top and bottom line, averaging 40% higher sales and 52% higher operating profits over a three-year period.

ClearSteps enables teams slow down to “absolutely, positively” get things right.  Furthermore,  ClearSteps helps teams slow down without sacrificing productivity. The sky’s the limit for innovation and growth once the foundation of perfect execution is set.

“Being present calls on everyone to get a little better every day.”

Be PresentBe present

Distractions have never been a greater problem in the work place. As a result, the internal and external demands on people’s attention increases the probability of sloppy work.

The flow of information never stops. There is a never ending stream of emails, instant messages, social media alerts all competing for your employee’s attention.

From this chaotic environment a new movement has sprung to life in the personal growth industry. The call has gone out to ‘be present’.  ClearSteps helps leaders incorporate this personal growth strategy across their organization.

In the business world, being present means executing individual roles in a thoughtful way. Employees should never do things “because that’s the way we always did it”.  Instead, everyone should think about innovation. In top performing businesses, leaders encourage everyone on their team to ask “how can this job or task be done better?”  Consequently, innovation is no longer management’s sole responsibility. Being present calls on everyone to get a little better every day.
