In 2022 many business owners in New Zealand and around the world have been faced with rising costs across the board due to a range of factors. Some find it easy to “pass these costs on” to their customers, but in many instances, it isn’t that simple.
Given this, we have been asked to help businesses with technology-based initiatives to make their operations more efficient and thought we would share those suggestions.
Any business has a collection of processes that are required to make it run. Often these can include some legacy processes (we’ve always done it this way) that are manual, slow or involve significant rework and can benefit by being reviewed and then refactored.
Increasing Employee Productivity
Employees are reliant on the systems that surround them and it’s very apparent how this affects productivity: bad or inadequate systems result in low productivity due to miscommunication, rework or laborious manual processes, while useful and appropriate systems improve productivity. It’s that simple.
Putting in place technology and processes such as those outlined in the examples above can make a significant difference to the overall costs and productivity within organisations of all sizes.
There are other steps which can be taken using technology to help lower costs directly, but we will explore these in a future article.
Hopefully you have been inspired with some ways you can streamline your own operation. If you would like help with determining which processes need reviewing and what technology should be deployed, please get in touch.
