  We are living through fascinating times of digital revolution of fast, vast and cheap data, computing & communication with handheld and wearable technology. Cursive handwriting is out, keyboarding and thumb typing are in, corporate payrolls are breaking, remote working is on the rise and cyber crime will soon overtake street crime. We know by now that geeks have begun to rule and muscle is reporting to them.

Well defined, structured and measureable services like bookkeeping, accounting, finance, tax returns, healthcare support, software development and testing, graphics, web design, ecommerce and now even family, personal and executive services are increasingly performed remotely. Work hierarchies are becoming lean and businesses are looking to pay for results-based work -- not time-based. Hourly rates in this area is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard.

Let's Succeed
 I was in college when there was no internet. The idea of e-commerce still fascinates me. I had worked in New York's diamond district and got to know diamonds and jewelry pretty well. I traveled to Bali and Lithuania to buy jewelry and dabbled into building a website. One thing led to another and now I have created 4 e-commerce stores and am working on launching 3 more. From conceptualizing an idea, preparing and cataloging products, taking pictures, configuring shopping carts to setting up customer service and order fulfillment along with full back office integration, I gained a strong insight in these areas.
 Over the last 15 years, I have gained hands-on experience with registering domain names, designing personal and small business websites, logos, business card, tri-fold brochure, flyers, affiliate banners and email campaigns and hosting servers. When you digital, you want to be found on the internet. Your digital identity may need marketing with SEO, PPC, social media engagement to be found.
 I was trained as an accountant and lawyer. Over the last 30 years of versatile experience doing complex balance sheets on Wall Street to working in and watching how businesses and their back offices work across private and public sectors. I have successfully applied process improvements and digital automation to small business because I have run some myself. Now the time is ripe for globally remotization back office services. The opportunity exists for masterfully marrying demand for services and quality + low cost offering from around the world. How? Efficient business processes and cutting edge web and communication technologies will do the job.

  • technology, jobless recovery
 What happened to typists, stenographers, and proof-readers? Now secretaries, bookkeepers, personal bankers, paralegals, administrative assistants, travel agents, vocational school teachers, ticket clerks, translators, store attendants, benefits managers and traditional media advertising roles are on the chopping board. Have you heard economists talking about jobless recovery? This is a phenomenon that is here to stay and will continue. Digital technology revolution and the globalization of economies are eliminating more traditional jobs and creating new and few jobs. We are living through the fastest revolution of digital technology and our lives are being reconfigured right in front of our eyes. Data will be a precious commodity and information security of immense importance. Geeks and nerds will rule because they will hold the ability to meet the challenges of the future. While some are sitting and eating on the couch watching sports and American Idol, they are busy changing the future.

  • remote working, payroll, American economy

  The human resources department is doomed. There is no viable future for the HR function, and HR professionals will inevitably be replaced by software. Remote work, flextime, career sabbaticals, and zero-hours contracts are all types of flexible work. The remote work revolution has been rumbling across industries for years now, and it isn't over yet. It is predicted that by 2020 in-house HR will downsize and outsourcing will increase, HR will increasingly utilize analytics and big data to augment its value to the firm, strategic thinking will become in-house HR’s new core competence, managing a remote workforce will be the new norm and HR will increasingly utilize analytics and big data to augment its value to the firm. The New York Times reports that by one estimate, telecommuting has risen 79 percent between 2005 and 2012 and now makes up 2.6 percent of the American work force, or 3.2 million workers, according to statistics from the American Community Survey. That includes full-time employees who work from home for someone other than themselves at least half the time.

  • virtual assistant, service outsourcing

  We are getting used to smart virtual assistant applications like Google Now, Siri and Cortana currently live on our mobile phones. Many large businesses are using virtual assistant apps on telephone and chat customer services. These apps are continually prompting us with suggestions and taking instructions to help. IBM is already investing heavily in the area; the company has revealed that it is pouring resources into the development of artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. Microsoft’s Cortana has recently launched, and it will run on the desktop with Windows 10. Virtualization or automation of more back office services wiil happen but global outsourcing already taking place of bookkeeping, accounting, finance, healthcare, software, graphics, web design, ecommerce, family, personal and executive services. These can be performed from anywhere in the world without supervision because the output is measurable. Before the services are more automated with artificial intelligence, low cost and efficient options such as outsourcing will be explored. These services are ideal candidates because they can be well defined, structured and be performed by smart people from anywhere. The global outsourcing of these services has become possible with efficient business process design of business needs in large economies and cost management in low cost economies enabled by the latest cutting edge web and communication technologies.
