Flying The Flag

Anybody spending any amount of time in business knows that you need to let people know what you do.  Personally, I don't do that very often in this space, as I don't want this to become some type of sales platform. But, I have to admit, lately I've been flooded with conversations like the following:

Q:  Who do you work for?
A:  EiS Technologies
Q:  What do they do?

When I get into conversations like this, it reminds me that I have not done a good job of getting the message out.  Great company, does really cool stuff, but I still hit conversations like this on a weekly basis.  In fact, I got into another one today with a current EiS customer.  One of my team members had the same conversation with another current EiS customer.  Really hit me between the eyes.  So, hopefully without sounding like a sales shill, please let me "fly the flag" for a bit.

I work for an amazing company:  EiS Technologies.  We bring clarity to chaos by organizing data into information, which aids leaders in making well-informed decisions.  We deliver this value to our customers in three ways:

1.  We build products that deliver transactional information, business intelligence and business analytics in a simple, easy-to-use way.  Most of those products enhance Oracle products like Oracle Business Intelligence or Financial Statement Generator (including pre-built reports and dashboards).  EiS is an Oracle Integration Partner…our products work with Oracle.

2.  We provide consulting services for our own products, for Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion Applications, and Oracle Business Intelligence.  Now, there are plenty of implementers out there.  But what differentiates EiS is our clear understanding of the information customers want from their enterprise applications systems.  We are an Oracle Platinum Consulting partner.

3.  We educate our customers on EiS products and on Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle E-Business Suite, and Oracle Business Intelligence.  We are an authorized reseller and private delivery partner with Oracle University.  At EiS, we train our customers to not only implement and utilize, we also train them on extracting information from their data.

You can learn more by visiting our website, following us on Twitter, or connecting with us on Facebook.

There, that wasn't so bad, was it?  So what about the takeaway for all of us?  We should all be flying our flag…all the time.  Whether we're independent workers or we work for a huge conglomerate, it's in everyone's best interests (including those who might need your services) to say what we do…concisely and consistently.  It's not selling so much as it is communicating.  Hit the comments and share.
