App 58/60: Company Organization chart

Simitless helps companies improve their internal organization.

As the popular folk saying goes, “Little children little problems, big children big problems”. For you, your baby is your business. You have watched it grow from a little startup into the influential company it is now. You have worked hard to help it succeed. You have dealt with the small problems at the very beginning, and you managed to handle the issues with poise and finesse. But the issues you are facing now are of a slightly bigger magnitude. And they impact a greater amount of people. In fact, the main concern that makes your head spin is the people, your employees, whose sheer amount has rendered the organizational structure of your business completely indecipherable. Indeed, your business has grown so much that your employees loose track of who does what, who works in which department, and, what is of paramount importance, who is in charge. Yet, should they be the ones to blame, really? At the end of the day, you are the boss, and all the big boss power of making change for the better happen lies in your hands and your hands alone. Thus, having studied the situation with all the due diligence of a smart leader, you decree that the time has come to introduce an internal tool whose primary goal should consist in providing your teams with information about the organizational structure of the company. You are convinced that this is the only way that would enable a more effective and efficient collaboration. You have the idea all laid out in your head. All you need is a simple organizational chart detailing the positions of all the members of your organization. Keeping up with the requirements of the digital age, you dismiss the handcrafted version of the chart due to its poor sustainability, lack of flexibility and… well difficulty of consulting by anyone anywhere at any time. A digital solution it must be! But where to find the product that will fit your needs without breaking the bank? Although business is picking up, it won’t remain profitable if you decide to spend money left, right and center. Well, today is your lucky day! Meet Simitless.

Simitless has exactly what you are looking for – an application model that helps you create the best thought out business organization chart. Consult the application model, then click " Use this model" button to create your copy of the app. Simitless is a system that adapts to your needs. Plus, it is risk-free. How so, you wonder? Well, Simitless does not require any disproportionate investment upfront to set your application up and running: try out the app first and then pay only for the necessary resources. At any time, you can either improve and grow your application, or, on the contrary, reduce its size and cut down on its capabilities. To save your progress, think of creating an account by following the instructions on the green buttons! Once your application has been created from the model provided, invite all your employees to join the application by creating a Simitless account. ( Edit app Access rights)

Start configuring your application by first clicking the title of the "Department" field, then go on and " Edit data type", and finally find the "Manage selectable values" list at the bottom of the configuration page. This is where you can edit, rename, rearrange, in short, manage the values to make them reflect the organizational structure of your business. In other words, you can either delete existing values that are not useful to you, or add supplementary ones that you feel are lacking. You can assign a color for each value, representing a department, to visually aid you with identifying the individual departments on the chart at a glance.

Let’s return to the main screen . Having detailed the structure of your organization by adding/deleting the departments within your company, you can start populating your app with the actual data by either creating a record per employee or importing an existing list using the button. Each employee record is constituted by the employee’s  name, job title, department and a link that redirects to the record of the employee’s manager.

Et voilà, in just a few simple clicks, you have an organization chart that reflects your company’s inner structure, elucidating all the dependencies between the departments and the employees, thus facilitating the collaboration efforts between your workers. And who knows, maybe this chart (and this app) is only a first small step towards a major internal productivity system that could benefit your company in its future internal management.



If you want more features, but don't think you know how to modify your application yourself, talk to your local IT specialist, we will support them in setting up your system for you! For a limited time, while we are working on setting up our consultant network, we can personally assist you with getting your system up and running.
