CEO & Co-founder
Chris Jordan, a native of Baton Rouge, is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Omnidek. Chris has been in the technology sector for 13 years and has successfully developed and executed 2 multi-national licensing agreements most notably with Sage Accounting Software. Chris's expertise is in product/market placement, product design, fundraising and path to market strategies.
Chris believes that B2B technology today parallels the early transportation industry in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It wasn't until the creation of the assembly line and the low cost automobile that we as a society could achieve efficient interstate travel and safety. Today there are competing technology platforms and concepts (Early automobiles, Bicycles, horse and buggies) struggling to solve specific processes leaving disjointed and disconnected methodologies of "work". Microsoft's 100% market-share and file stroage structure is also handicapping efficiency and collaboration. Today almost every process ends in a file created, attached, and then "fired over the fence" with email in hopes of receipt and returned action.
In stark contrast, we now see with the creation of Electronic Medical records (a pure data eco system under government mandate) Microsoft has no market share, and the industry now offers doctor/patient portal experiences instead of email, and shared records across providers creating enormous amounts of visibility, security, and efficiency. This concept created the blueprint for the next generation of B2B collaboration: Portals, Data, and a Network!
Omnidek was created to be the second mover to Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word, Excel, Pdf's, SharePoint, Folders, etc) where companies can dynamically create their own Intranet/Extranet Portal for managing their unique processes for any industry, and then allowing customers and vendors to come into their portal and participate in collaborative and secure work processes such as approvals, data collection and secure signatures. We call this #DoWorkTogether.
Omnidek's network architecture (just like facebook) allows for overlapping of relationships to scale to function similarly to social platforms. Rather than a comment on your picture, it's a comment on a payment application or request for signature. To add even more significance, your Omnidek profile serves as your BlockChain wallet and creates a secure and verified "work credit score" sourced from your actual work product we call "Work Tokens". We believe Microsoft was the first mover, but Omnidek is the next. A global business network, built for Blockchain and the future.
