Long term groups explanation: Item 709, 765, 819 - contains process review phases. We are usually doing process review in 6 months phases and applying changes for better effectivity. It's our common practice from previous projects with good results. Someone may negotiate why we are not doing this for the item 862 as well. Yes, we are doing, but the business part is more complex and we are covering review points as part of item 1025 and 1231.
Lanast Co. has several social channels Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook as the main ones, where the company publish news about the SmartCityCoin.io portal. Lanast Co. wants to set up a publishing standards for investors in the form of daily reporting, which carries the basic set of information that investors need.
Lanast Co. is going to avoid to sit for days and nights chatting and react to all real time, because as a first it is useless, in the second it is expensive, in the third it is labor-intensive. The company set a report format that the company will share to review project progress. Report will contains the following areas:
General Details: Lanast Co. will tell by few sentences an overall progress information. No technical, no economical terminology. Everyone must understand.
Project Progress: The main things done on the project.
CITY Token: Token progress, it's status in network and exchange statuses.
Finance: Project balance sheet.
Answers: Every day, our social robots scan through mentions and comments on social networks channels and collect information about activities about us. The company consider comments selection based on importance and adequacy that the company will answer in report and include in FAQ catalogue. If there are many answers, the company will either increase the number of answers in the report or transfer the answers to these interesting questions the next day. In short, all get an answer to their questions, if they are adequate.
In short, a transparent approach to the matter. On the beginning it will be interesting for investors, later for people who will work with projects.
During the crowd sale period Lanast Co. will release report on the daily basis, later Lanast Co. is going to do a bi-monthly and monthly reporting period. As common for all our sites, these reports will be available on our web, as well as posted to our social network channels.
Transparent & Educative is the topic that's the most interesting part of the project for our CEO personally.
Five years ago, his wife invested to the network of Russian pizzerias DoDo pizza. It's a franchise network and just not interesting from their point of view. But on the other hand, DoDo pizza does the financial reporting and the financial management of the company publicly. So they show people interested in what kind of expenses they have in each direction, what problems they face, how they solve them, publish their internal activity on the website in a shorter way.
Lanast Co. would like to go deeper and further.
One thing is some kind of monthly reporting, another thing is the operations of this company. In short, Lanast Co. is going to create an environment with this project. Most likely the company will have to have a project assistant who will deal with the project documentation. Lanast Co. is going to post internal project information throughout the project just for the education of students. So that students can view information about how the project look like, how its phases looked at the very beginning, and see all the progress of the project, read comments and watch operations, look at different parts, participate in the form of meeting minutes of what is discussed at the meeting and so on.
This is not all, because it is an endless stream of information and data, but in some interesting mode. Lanast Co. will publish information in our internal Wikipedia so that young project managers, managers in companies who have some kind of technical knowledge from universities, develop their working skills to see one of the options for project management.
