CALUMO: built with the needs and demands of Finance People front and center
Overwhelmingly, Finance people are busy, crazy busy. That is not to say other people aren’t crazy busy too, just that with CALUMO, everybody gets the benefit of using tools made for busy people.
Three words crazy busy people want to hear when it comes to great tools:
Easy. For busy people, it’s gotta be easy or it’s dead! They just don’t have the time and energy to embrace and engage with “too hard”. They’d rather continue doing what they’re doing because, even though it may be hopelessly inefficient, it’s predictable for them and they understand it.
CALUMO had to be easy to use, and it is – it just works. Once you tap into the basic philosophy, you quickly know how you can make it work for you and your needs. It just works.
Fast. It has to be fast, incredibly fast. Busy people don’t want to be waiting around watching status indicators slowly tick up to 100% when they could be doing something far more important. Every opportunity is taken in developing CALUMO to squeeze every last cycle of speed available and ensure CALUMO comes back quicker than any other information system you use.
Familiar. Busy people don’t have time to learn a new tool for this and a new tool for that. For them it’s about cumulative knowledge and they like when what’s new to today is built on something they already intimately understand. If you work in a Finance team or as an analyst, you know Excel. You really, really know Excel – it’s just so darn useful. It’s probably a little love-hate. CALUMO takes away the hate so it’s all love and we take great care to make sure when CALUMO allows Excel to connect to your BI information, it does so in a predictable and familiar way. You know how to use functions right? Maybe Excel is not one of your tools of choice, so that’s where the web comes in. If you know how to surf the web, then you are more than qualified to drive CALUMO web pages like a pro. Published reports work in the web the way websites usually do – so you don’t need to know much more!
