Although he’s just coming off of a victory at Baton Rouge Entrepreneur Week’s pitch competition, Chris Jordan, CEO, chairman and founder at tech startup Omnidek isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Omnidek’s tagline touts “doing work together,” and the no-code software delivers on that promise through easy to use drag-and-drop tools and integrated portals connecting individuals and organizations.
Jordan’s participation in BREW’s competition was a strategic move to garner more exposure for his company and operating model. He believes in Omnidek’s power to revolutionize communication at work.
Jordan’s end goal for Omnidek is ambitious, but he sees a path forward — and he’s going for it. Here’s how.
Tapping into Unlimited Potential
Portals are the future of communication at work, Jordan says. Currently, communication happens through files, spreadsheets, folders and emails. “What Omnidek creates is effectively an interstate for businesses to do work with one another without the need for any of those,” Jordan says. The Omnidek user experience is closer to social media than traditional email communication.
Jordan compares Omnidek’s product to electronic medical records (EMRs). EMRs can be shared with ease between healthcare facilities, and they’re such a powerful tool that, Jordan says, they’ve cut significantly into Microsoft Office’s market share in medical.
Omnidek’s blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we record employment data, too. Instead of using resumes to communicate work history, Omnidek users build a “work credit score” comprised of their work experiences. This is a more objective transmission of work data than user-defined resumes.
