Open-book management, with OfficeBooks

One of the key elements of our design philosophy for OfficeBooks was to support an open-book management style for our users. 

With OfficeBooks, your team shares access to company performance information and activity details.

As members of your staff use OfficeBooks to generate new quotations, ship product to customers, or issue purchase orders, that "news" is delivered to all users within your business via the Dashboard and the event ticker at the top of each screen.

High-level details, such as your current backlog and the current month's bookings and billings are displayed on the dashboard alongside action items.  "Looking at the numbers" becomes normal practice for everyone in the company.  This is central to the open-book approach.

Uncomfortable with this whole open-book thing?

We understand that not all business owners are keen to adopt the open-book approach.  Don't worry, you can use our user-role settings to control which users are able to view financial details.
