The Silicon Review
Managing a Company from a CEO or front-line managers’ point of view is tough. Especially having proper detailed know-how and details of the complete workforce of an organization. As the company grows, it becomes difficult for the top management to directly stay in touch with the efficiency and shortcomings of a group or the whole organisational workforce.
With this aim to provide a simple software solution for the frontrunners of a company, Robert Epner decided to use his expertise in running and managing 24 different businesses under him to come up with a unique solution.
