Posted on 01 Mar 2018

Posted on 21 Feb 2018

One of our first website designs for www.Chronotek.net had an image of a guy holding his head in agony. Much like this guy. You would think that an evil person wired his brain to intravenously pump in Milli Vanilli on auto-repeat. That wasn’t the case. He was doing payroll with handwritten timesheets. That’s a painful […]

You Should NEVER Do These Things If You Manage Remote Employees

Posted on 06 Sep 2017

Have you ever tried to round up a dozen cats into the tub for a bath? I haven’t personally (although there is probably a YouTube video), but I can imagine that the task is similar to managing remote employees. Did everyone show up? Are they where they are supposed to be, when they are supposed […]

Posted on 24 Aug 2017

I drove into town one morning and it was beautiful. The sky was Carolina blue as the sun peaked over the tree line and dew glistened on the grass. Then I noticed the filth on my front windshield. How much more spectacular the view would have been through a crystal clear window! I wonder if […]

Posted on 21 Aug 2017

Today Americans between Oregon and South Carolina within the path of totality will experience a total eclipse of the sun.

Posted on 05 May 2017

What you know is surely important, but maybe more critical is how soon you know it.  Knowing that bad weather is coming is much better than knowing that it came and went.  We talked to a janitorial customer recently who shared the importance of the speed of information and how he gets the speed he […]

Is it Time to Unsubscribe from Handwritten Timesheets?

Posted on 18 Apr 2017
