How You Can Use HOPE to Your Benefit

HOPE is dedicated to the challenge of succeeding in today's high pressure times;

to overcoming pressures which daily intrude even more forcefully into your business life. Even large organizations may not fare well in rapidly changing times. Established systems are difficult to change and staff often grows "like Topsy." Just as mammals replaced dinosaurs, organizations must evolve to being lean, versatile, skilled and capable.

Business on the scale and the scope we know could not exist without computers. But no one can afford to concentrate full time on becoming a computer genius, and hiring a management information staff is increasingly expensive. Viable businesses today can not maintain layers of staff people. As a result, we all, to a degree, work in a one person environment where we exist as entrepreneurs doing most of our own work. The computer, the tool that permitted this change (yet which often frustrates us) must be the source to provide us with the help we need to excel and to succeed.

What each of us needs is a computer system which is our staff. Such a system must perform almost everything an assistant, an accountant, a lawyer, a secretary would do for us. This is HOPEs job. The system allows us to function at our best, because we can concentrate on doing business.

To enable us to function at our best, a computer must be able to provide the information we need when we need it. It must be able to accomplish the tasks we give it without time consuming coaching. It must be so innocuous that it doesn't interfere with our human relationships. It should replace a myriad of smaller "machines" like phones, faxes and typewriters, aping their functions, while being even less obtrusive than they are. It must never, never break down. In summary, except for consuming a little electric power, it should do those tasks and only those tasks we want it to.

By helping you in this way, HOPE allows you to fully realize your business potential. You do no more than you usually would; HOPE does the rest, including those tasks you don't need or want to tie up your time.

Below, you can list those tasks you need done.
