Smartplan’s New Year’s Resolutions

First and foremost, we at Smartplan would like to start out by wishing you all a happy New Year! We hope you had a nice Christmas with all your loved ones and have entered 2016 the best (and safest) way possible. Entering a new year is to many people associated with a fresh start and an opportunity to make life changes. Some set out to lose 10 kg while others set out to save up money and go on a long wanted journey. Which New Year’s resolutions does Smartplan have for 2016? We’ve discussed it at the office and have found some good suggestions and some funny suggestions describing our goals for 2016.

iPhone app

One of Smartplan’s biggest goals for this year is to launch something that we’ve been working on for a long time. We want to make the mobile experience with Smartplan easier for our customers and therefore we’re working on an iPhone app. The development of such an app is, however, a very long and complicated process, when you do it yourself, and for that reason it’s difficult for us to say when precisely we’ll launch it. Yet, we do enter the new year with the goal of bringing it to you in 2016.

Gather inspiration and broaden our horizon

An important part of every business is to stay updated on development and new trends. Consequently, in 2016 we want to participate in more conferences and fairs of different businesses to gather inspiration for new initiatives and broaden our horizon, so that we’re able to give you all the best.

Administrative tasks

Since Smartplan’s a small business consisting of few employees, we often don’t have time for the administrative, organisational tasks. Therefore, we have a few to-do’s for the new year:

  • Order signs for the office so that the postman can find us and we can receive packages

  • Be better at noting/following up on the small ideas that arise during the course of the week

  • Find a better way to share and archive the articles that could be relevant for the whole team


After a big crisis a the office 1.5 months ago, where we ran out of coffee, we’ve made an extremely important rule never to run out of coffee again. But even though we’re coffee lovers, we should drink less coffee, which in return should be really good. And we must remember that coffee doesn’t count as water in the amount of water, we’re advised to drink every day. That’s, however, easy forgetting, because we love coffee!

Other than these resolutions, some mentioned that we should be standing more at our adjustable desks during the day, so we’re also in on the whole health trend. Our only New Year’s resolution left is actually the most important: making our customers happy. What are your New Year’s resolutions?
