Handcuffed to Email

“I love searching for things in my inbox. It’s effortless!” -No one. Ever.

Email. It’s a necessary evil, right? How else would we know when we need to make that payment to the Persian prince or when our vehicle warranty is set to expire (except those guys are going to call you, too…they’re vicious)?

Danger lives in our inboxes, but there is a better way to communicate with your clients and exchange sensitive information. It’s called Liscio, and it’s going to change how you work. More on that in a sec. Let’s look at things from your clients’ perspective. 


Meet Dwight. 

He works a typical 9-5 at a medium sized regional paper company and owns a small farm in the Pennsylvania countryside. His daily job has him busy enough trying to meet sales quotas, keeping clients supplied, and managing his other day-to-day tasks. While his phone is always on his hip, it’s mostly used for his work at the paper company. He has a smattering of apps on it, including email. 

When Dwight receives an email in his personal inbox, he usually sees it on his phone first; he wouldn’t dare use company devices to view personal emails. But here’s the thing. Dwight, being a small business owner, gets LOTS of emails each day. As they pile up, the older ones get buried. Out of sight, out of mind. 

His CPA sends him a message about needing some important documents for the upcoming tax deadline. Dwight sees it, but doesn’t have time to respond right away. His day goes on, and as such, more emails come in on top of the one from his CPA. Dwight forgets to get the firm what it needs to keep his farm above board with the IRS. He incurs a stiff penalty and is not happy about that.

Dwight could have been saved a lot of pain, time, and money if his CPA just used Liscio.


What could Liscio have done for Dwight?

If Dwight’s CPA used Liscio, the only email he would have gotten from his accountant would have been one inviting him to sign into Liscio. After that, every piece of communication and information between him and the firm would have been done in the app, and it would have been secured automatically

With push notifications, Dwight would have known he needed to get his accountant those docs AND he would have been able to do so just by using the built in mobile scanner. Point, shoot, and send all in the app. Done. He avoids jail and gets to see his son turn one on his birthday. 

Liscio is a quiet space where he isn’t distracted by the flood of information in email. The accountant gets, and keeps, the attention of the client. Liscio keeps everything organized. Clients know precisely what they owe their accountant at any given time (and the reminders are automatic).


So what can we learn here?

Allegories and allusions to the best TV show of all time aside, Liscio solves a real world problem. Firms living by email and text are setting themselves up for failure. It may not be today or tomorrow, but email biting you in the rear will most likely happen if you don’t do something about it. 


Here’s what we know about email:

  • We get too much of it, and it gets lost in the shuffle of life.
  • It’s not secure. Period. Phishing, hacking, scamming…it lives there. 
  • People aren’t opening emails; if they are, followthrough is abysmal. 
  • Email smells bad. (It stinks!)


Here’s the good news. With Liscio, the email monster gets put to bed. You get:

  • A streamlined way to communicate with your clients that allows you to keep your staff in the loop as you see fit.
  • Security that is automatic. Cloud-based, bank-grade encryption is at the heart of Liscio.
  • Because everything is in one place, when a client gets a notification in Liscio, they respond 19x faster than with email when you use the built-in messaging feature.
  • Liscio smells great.


Liscio is built from the ground up to take client communications OFF unsecured email and bring it into a secure, collaborative, quiet space.

Your email inbox is difficult to share with colleagues, so creating transparency across clients results in endless copying…which leads to more email. 

Luckily, there is a modern, affordable, secure solution. And the best part is when you stop emailing clients and use Liscio instead, everyone gets more work done!
