“The problems are solved, not by giving new information, but by arranging what we have known since long."
(1889 - 1951)
One of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein played a crucial role in analytic philosophy. He changed the discourse and thought on topics that deal with logic, and philosophy and investigated the multifarious nature of interpreting them.
Wittgenstein believed that Logical form has to be shown rather than stated, and, though some languages and methods of symbolism might reveal their structure more perspicuously than others. He then adopted a view of philosophy that rejected entirely the construction of theories and viewed philosophy rather as an activity, a method of clearing up the onfusion that arises through misunderstandings of language.
Building on the ideologies Wittgenstein held dear, we aimed to show logic and structure not by language but rather by action. In this Pelcro release, we focused on creating logical workflows that ease the platform usage and alleviate confusion for your business. So without further ado, let's dive into v1.53.
“Nothing contributes so much to the prosperity and happiness of a country as high profits.”
(1772 - 1823)
David Ricardo was a British political economist who is famous for his theories on comparative advantage, the principle of economic specialization, and the law of diminishing returns. Ricardo’s most important work is “On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation” which he published in 1817. It is considered one of the most important contributions to economic thought because it laid down the foundations for classical economics that were later used.
Comparative advantage is important for understanding the benefits of trade. Countries with comparative advantages will export more of their goods than other countries at a lower cost, which makes them more competitive in the global market. In today's digital economy, your software is your competitive advantage. At Pelcro, we understand that our solution should provide a framework for building a world-class software, so you can respond faster to customer needs, and adapt to a constantly changing market.
The namesake for this release comes from a sizeable amount of new features which are purely developed to maximize the potential of your products and services to your audience, at no added cost. So without further ado, let’s dive right in.
“To manage is to forecast and plan, to organize, to command, to coordinate and to control. To foresee and plan means examining the future and drawing up the plan of action.”
(1841 - 1925)
To assess the effectiveness of your operations and strategize for growth, there has to be a core understanding of efficiency that is embedded in your business thought process. Fayol understood the importance of how diligent delegation and managerial skills were crucial to his success, and on a larger scale the success of projects associated with him. He further developed the idea that it's not just managerial skills, it's administrative functions, because skills alone are meaningless if they are not supplemented with the appropriate tools and channels to flourish. During the start of his career as a French mining director, Fayol spent his time supervising on-ground workers, understanding their day-to-day and how they conduct even their mundane tasks. As he began observing each and every employee, he started collecting insights on how to improve not only their jobs, but his, and everyone else in his position. He then went on to write about his 14 Principles of Management, which are still considered a good reference for organizational structure today.
To improve the platform with Fayol's perspective in mind, we decided to focus a bulk of our new features this release on operational management. Specifically, how to shave off minutes in your day by simplifying the process of conducting certain tasks via the platform. The goal is to create a seamless experience that not only caters to your business needs, but also exceeds them. We aimed to do this is through a variety of ways, from enhancing our reports further, to streamlining simple administrative tasks, which we'll go through in details below, because efficiency is everything in the digitized world we live in.
So without further ado, let’s introduce Release v1.51 "Fayol".
Jean Baptiste Say
“Supply creates its own demand”
(1767 - 1832)
As businesses evolve through an everchanging economic climate, operations and offerings must adapt to the demands of customers. In the world of economic evolution, a business wants to offer the best possible features to its customers to promote loyalty and healthy competition within the market. A way of promoting this sense is ensuring that you are not only catering to the needs of the customer but also exceeding them. This can be done by easing the process for you and your customers with convenient solutions to track and proceed with payments.
Jean Baptiste Say understood the importance of catering to the needs of those that keep your business alive. A true economist, Say dedicated a majority of his work to documenting the importance of effective selling values and how this affects the purchasing power of the market. He formulated a law of markets and wrote a book titled "A Treatise On Political Economy", which was published in 1803. Given that our current release is centered around promoting payment ease for our clients, it only made sense to fashion it after him.
So without further ado, let’s introduce Release v1.5 "Say".
