OnBase vs. the Instant Pot

2 minute read

The Instant Pot has become one of the most sought-after kitchen gadgets in recent history.

It is fundamentally a pressure cooker that  cuts cooking time down from several hours into a matter of minutes. With a little research, I found some recipes that were equivalents to things I make which would have previously taken much longer.

Implementing OnBase is very similar: when used properly, it’s a mechanism to get the same result more quickly with less effort.

Just like with any recipe, the inputs will always be important, so with your implementations you’ll still need the people, data, and processes you started with. But now you’ll just need these inputs in varying degrees. The key differentiator of the Instant Pot is that it can be programmed to follow rules and do things at certain times.

The same can be said for OnBase: It can be user-configured to provide workflow capabilities and adjust to the changing needs of your business.

After testing our first recipe, we found something that used to take 8 hours in the slow cooker took less than 45 minutes in the Instant Pot- and tasted great! We no longer had to prep ingredients in the morning – now we could throw things in at the last minute, but enjoy the same end result with less effort. As someone who works full time, the idea of getting this time back is very valuable.

Time is one of the only resources you can’t make more of, so the time I save on the Instant Pot is time I can spend with my wife and dogs. With your OnBase implementation, the time you save can be used to do more strategic tasks and pursue things you never had the bandwidth to pursue before.

In the end, you have to get used to the idea that you will be approaching the job differently than you did before, and you’ll need to trust the new tool to get you the results you want. The Instant Pot has over 28,000 reviews on Amazon and has a 4.5 star rating.

OnBase has over 18,000 customers globally and has a 97% retention rate.

In today’s culture, people want to be sure the product they are buying has been validated by others. In both cases, a satisfied customer base does more to comfort buyers than an eager salesperson.

Once you own the Instant Pot, you find that there are thousands of recipes available on the internet, for free, to use as you see fit. OnBase has a wonderful user community that provides a shared collective of user knowledge, configuration resources, and forums that can help you start saving time with your new tool, as well.

Between OnBase and the Instant pot, one definitely makes better tasting food, but both are tools I wouldn’t want to live without.
