A number of useful business tools and utilities have evolved
within the Stamina environment to satisfy the day to day needs
of a busy workplace. These are packaged under the general
heading of Office Automation, and can result in significant
savings and efficiencies in your everyday working environment.
lets you maintain an electronic diary that can be referenced
by other people, though individual appointments can be marked
as private. Uses a month at a glance layout with explosions
for any day, it also allows conference meetings to be scheduled
for multiple people with a single entry. Can also be used
as an electronic Status Board, so you can quickly determine
who is where, when, why and for how long. If used correctly,
anyone can make an appointment for anyone else with confidence.
is an electronic form of the jotter pad and the scraps of
paper that always seem to flutter around a busy desk. This
allows you to keep TO DO list and tid-bits of useful information
at your fingertips, but unlike the scraps of paper you may
be using now, this electronic jotter can not be misplaced!
is a complete prospecting tool, allowing details of prospects
name, address and phone details, interests and information
on contacts to be stored. Actions can be set for specific
days, and direct mail can be accomplished with production
of labels or personalised letters. If you have no need for
a prospecting system to support your marketing functions,
it can also be used as a comprehensive electronic ROLODEX.
if you need to be able to produce form letters, but don’t
need the power of a full blown word processing system, this
provides a facility to use the RUNOFF text processor, which
supports boldface, underlining etc and can extract any information
from your corporate database for inclusion within a document.
allows projects to be broken down into any number of tasks,
which can be prioritorized, be dependent on other tasks, and
be assigned to anyone within the organisation for actioning.
Any type of project can be controlled and managed, from a
major construction, to software development, or just organise
an office party.
lost messages will be a thing of the past with the comprehensive
electronic mail system. You may establish your own mail lists
for automatic distribution of messages, and recipients are
warned that they have unread mail waiting. Mail may be scheduled
for future transmission, which is a facility used extensively
to warn people of impending diary appointments, internal audits,
business alarm conditions etc. Of course, hard copies of any
mail sent or received can be obtained, and the integration
with the rest of the system means that Electronic Mail can
become a powerful Quality Tool.
