The Grail with Keith Gregg (12/9/20)

Reaching Operational Efficiency… is Now In Reach for SMBs.


By Keith Gregg, Founder/CEO, Chalice Network

“The genius is in making the complex simple.”  –  Albert Einstein

Running a small business is not for the faint of heart. Myriad responsibilities, a surplus of critical decisions and ongoing effort to streamline your day-to-day activities can be dizzying. Few recognize the complexity of the balancing act SMB owners perform every day, but Chalice Network does! In fact, we are purpose-built to address these complexities and help improve operational efficiency across the full spectrum of your roles and responsibilities. How? Through the power of FinTech and our 55,000+ member strong organization.

While toiling on a weekend DIY (do it yourself) project, I pondered the famous Einstein quote at the top of the article. Bemused at my DIY efforts, I seemed to demonstrate the antithesis of both genius and simple. DIY activities are spiking during the Pandemic — it’s understandable; they are somewhat therapeutic. Watch YouTube videos (a few times) to figure out what to do and, if you’re like me, do the task a few times to get it right. In the end, we’re proud of our accomplishment, even though it took an inordinate amount of time and could have been done better and more cost-effectively by other means.

Running your business this way, without the right tools and by reinventing the wheel to accomplish repetitive tasks is the death knell to productivity and more than likely, your business. Yet so many advisors are stuck in this vicious cycle when a simple and cost-effective solution is only a click away!

That click goes to us. That’s where Chalice Network dominates. We bring game-changing operational efficiency to your business at a super low-cost so you can perform at your best and grow your business. How? Through a single sign-on dashboard that harnesses the awesome power of FinTech and gives you access to affordable solutions to your complex issues.

SMB owners need to look hard at their day-to-day activities and how their team spends time. Odds are, you’re highly engaged with a handful of disparate systems and online services that drive your operation. From QuickBooks to Health Insurance/Benefits platforms to your CRM and Marketing systems, you bounce around losing hours of productivity per employee every day. Equally, your information is siloed due to the limitations of your technology. The promise of these digital solutions is being under-realized — and it’s costing you both time and money.

Historically, leading businesses and Fortune 500 firms have been able to afford to integrate these resources to provide their teams with a dashboard and centralized location to access their mission critical tools. In doing so, they have saved millions upon millions through achieving operational efficiency. But that’s not only for the big players; Chalice Network has changed all that.

When you join Chalice, SMBs can achieve the same efficiencies and increases in productivity without the cost of building a custom dashboard and tech stack. That’s because it’s already built and waiting for you. We’ve banded together for the common good of the industry and to fulfill your independent needs. For less than $100/month, you can access our marketplace through our single sign-on platform. It’s teeming with powerful solutions, resources and services that are crucial for operational efficiency and your success.
