David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD) time management philosophy is one of the most widely used productivity systems in the business world today. What makes Allen’s work so exciting is that he breaks down all our time management needs into 6 simple steps:
The foundation of Allen’s system is step #1 – collect. Allen is a firm believer in the idea that when we try to remember all our obligations, desires, goals, and projects, we just don’t remember everything of relevance and things fall through the cracks, creating the inevitable crisis when we realize that we have forgotten something important. Allen advocates creating a system that you can trust and using that system to store every detail of your life that you must remember.
Relenta CRM and Allen
Unlike other Customer Relationship Management (CRM) programs, Relenta CRM was in fact designed with Allen’s philosophy in mind. Relenta CRM is designed to help you seamlessly run your business using Allen’s method. As a highly reliable online system, you can access Relenta CRM from your computer or portable wireless device because Relenta CRM does not require the download of a complex software. Instead, Relenta CRM is hosted on our servers, meaning that you do not have to be at your desk to access it. Any computer or device with an internet connection can get you into the system and working on growing your business.
At any time, you can add your notes, ideas, and plans into the system so that your team can start work on your ideas at once. Your plans will immediately be out of your mind and as a result you will waste less energy trying to remember. This will leave you with more energy and brain power to actually implement your ideas. That’s not all. Relenta CRM actually starts the process of processing and organizing for you. As you input your ideas and plans into the system, you can assign your thoughts to specific team members for further work or you can even schedule meetings to discuss your ideas. With Relenta CRM, you can spend less time trying to balance and use countless different computer systems and you can start using one streamlined system that combines your business work with your customer service. Rather than focusing on each area separately, you can implement Allen’s ideas and start working on your business geometrically, combining ideas for all aspects of your business so that your company grows organically and in every area.
