How does this new service work, being provided by Vodafone for free? Basically, users enter data about their business; the system analyzes the information depending on multiple factors, and then the company receives a score and consultancy in order to improve its performances. The platform can be accessed from any device: smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. The questionnaire is simple and quick to be filled in, the maximum time is 15 minutes.
The first step is to fill in a questionnaire with different questions, depending on the activity field and the area of interest of those who access the platform. The questionnaire is available online to all the interested people, regardless if they are Vodafone customers or not. Subsequently, in an extremely short time, maximum 1 min. since the answers are sent, the person who filled in the questionnaire receives a score, followed by a personalized report on the corresponding business and by solutions recommended for the first two major needs that were identified.. For the personalized analysis, the applicant must provide concrete contact data for him and for the company. The platform identifies the needs, the areas in which the company can grow, so that its digital preparation level will grow. The third step is the interaction with the Ready Business team. This last step, the consultancy, is also provided for free by Vodafone. Now, the concepts recommended by the platform can be actually developed.
Ready Business Score is the most recent component of the Ready Business communication platform, launched by Vodafone Romania in 2014.
