How did we set a vision for Lumeer

Few months ago, when we started creating Lumeer, we had to start from scratch. There was no solid base on which we were going to build our solution, and there was so much to figure out, from technologies we wanted to use to what should user interface look like. Actually, every question we had to answer had given rise to another few and it was difficult to just choose the best possible answer and move forward. Anybody who has ever started a new project, regardless of its size or field, has surely experienced that situation. Have you? And if you have, what helped you to progress? If everything isn’t clear at the moment, how can we go and make the next step?

For us, the most important thing was that from the beginning, we knew the big picture – what do we want to create and what do we want to become. Organizations that know who they are, what are their values and where are they going – or, what their mission and vision is – perform much better than those which don’t know or at least aren’t that clear about it. We at Lumeer can only agree, because knowing our mission and vision enables us to make better decisions and progress faster. The second advantage is that our customers can clearly understand what can we provide and how can we help them.

Our mission is to enable you understand and use your data faster, easier and cheaper. With that in mind, we work hard to deliver only the best possible quality. Data are essential and Lumeer addresses and adapts to your real needs instead of forcing you to adapt to the software. We want to help you run your business more effectively. Time is your most important asset and we believe that by reducing overhead you can spend more time on creative tasks, increase your productivity and focus on what really matters.



How to track tasks for employees?

When multiple employees work on multiple projects, even in a small company it can easily happen that you lose track of who is doing what and on which project. However, it is very important to have quick and easy access to this kind information: you want to know progress on a project to plan for the future release, or you want to see if employees have some spare capacity or are too overwhelmed by the workload. 
Maybe you feel that all that information is being lost in a pile of spreadsheets and emails. They are all there, but to access them means to spend precious minutes or even hours on searching the documents, every time. You wish to have everything in one place, with every question about current status or capacity answered within seconds and with just a few clicks. You want to easily make changes that are smoothly and automatically propagated to relevant people in the company. In this article, we will show you how to achieve this with Lumeer.

How to effectively search and publish townhall meeting's resolutions

In previous posts, we created invitation to a townhall meeting and added minutes and comments. The collections are now filled with data and we will show you how to search those data and easily export them into publishable form.

After every townhall meeting, the municipality has to publish the resolutions which were approved during the meeting. To achieve that, we first search for the data we need by using Lumeer’s search box. We adjust the filters, hit enter and immediately see all resolutions from particular meeting.

We see the result of the search in table perspective, but we switch it to smart document perspective and produce the list of resolutions in a similar way that we have created the invitation.

Of course, we can choose how we want to export the document. Do we want to print it? Then we use export to PDF. Do we want to publish it on municipality’s website? We can put the PDF there, or, even simpler, we just put there the link to document which points directly to Lumeer, where t…

How do you search for your data in company IS?

“I need to look up that information.” This situation comes countless number of times every day and it’s not something people are used to look forward to. Looking for a particular piece of information often becomes a stressful and time-consuming procedure with uncertain result. You need to go through a number of systems – e.g. email, wiki, document server and other sources which are independent and not connected in any way. What’s more, in every of these sources, you have to be very concrete about what and where are you going to search for. Even if the data is stored in a typical information system or a spreadsheet, you need to specify the table and only after that you can get to the right report and finally see the data in the context.

But what can you do in the case you are not so sure about what exactly you are looking for and where it is stored? How can you do it without spending precious time trying to work out all the details?

Lumeer provides a solution to all these problems with …
