Wayfinders Business Co-operative is establishing a platform of management support services for our members. Together, our members create an economy of scale so we can access services that members individually are unlikely to afford or access. We will serve as a community to help each other thrive. Our site is currently under construction with more content and features being added as we grow.
Members will access a variety of integrated support services to help manage their businesses and organizations. Services are provided in two ways: business-to-business among members, and software-as-a- service in a cloud. Services may include any identified business requirements that make a good business case. Members will use our shared resources to optimize the value they offer their customers while earning appropriate returns.
Software-as-a-Service in a Cloud
Access a suite of online tools for management support, such as training, mentoring, business analysis, planning, forecasting, data analytics, decision support, collaboration, business match-making, project management and more
Most software offered will consist of integrated open-source programs to provide a common toolbox to get work done
Build your own user profile, control console and performance dashboard in a cloud environment, and use a standardized navigation system to access the various tools available
Access online forums for member discussions on subjects of shared interest.
We place a premium on building a trusting and supportive community.
