Why the Founding Fathers would have liked AboutTime

It’s the 4th of July tomorrow!  In honor of Independence Day we thought we would share a few quotes from America’s Founding Fathers.  As I looked through a myriad of amazing quotes from amazing men,  I couldn’t help but think that the Founding Fathers would have seen the value in a mobile resource management solution.  They would have liked AboutTime.  

You have too much at stake to hesitate. You ought not to think an hour upon the matter, but to spring to action at once...Now our time and turn is come, and perhaps the finishing stroke is reserved for us. When we look back on the dangers we have been saved from, and reflect on the success we have been blessed with, it would be sinful either to be idle or to despair.” -Thomas Pain

Sometimes it is hard to make a change.  Especially when you have been running your business the same way since you started it.  Even though change is hard “there is too much at stake to hesitate.”  Implementing a mobile resource management could be saving your business money while you are reading this blog. 

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”-Thomas Jefferson

A mobile resource management solution ensures that all of the data collecting in the field is accurate.  Features such as GPS time stamps  ensures that your data is unaltered and can be used as evidence if needed to protect your business from litigation.

“… having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obligated, by better information or fuller consideration, to change my opinions even on important subjects, which I thought right but found to be otherwise.”-Benjamin Franklin

A mobile resource management system, like AboutTime, sends the information collected in the field directly to the office in real time., where it can be compared to budgets.  Managers can give “fuller consideration” to how projects are progressing and make changes immediately, thus keeping projects on time and on budget. 

Yes, a lot of leeway was taken with these quotes but the messages, though applied to different circumstances, remain the same. 

Happy 4th of July from AboutTime!
