As 2020 is upon us, the time has come for people to look inward and make changes for the better. We all make goals for the New Year, whether it’s to be kinder or to finally stick to that diet and exercise plan. But what about goals for our businesses? If you’ve been doing the same work the same way for years, maybe it’s time to make a change.
Transforming the way you do work can seem daunting, but with the right tools, the transition can be seamless and the benefits limitless. With tools to properly manage workflows and documentation, you will see greater transparency and reduced risk across your organization. Software leads to greater efficiency and time saved when doing the same work using paper or outdated manual methods. This means you and your employees have the freedom to do higher level, more meaningful work.
Here are some tips to get started:
1. Assess the problem areas.
Every office works differently, even if they ultimately perform the same function. What are the particular challenges of your workplace that are impeding operations? These difficulties may be invisible if they are commonplace. For example, does it take several days for a manager to approve documentation that could be reviewed and signed in a single click? Are documents constantly emailed back and forth for collaboration, increasing the risk of lost or outdated versions? It may benefit your office to look outwards to see how similar business are doing their work. Can you do better?
2. Conduct market research.
Once you understand the challenges impeding your workplace, you can begin to discover the software tools that will solve these challenges. Exploring all of the products in the marketplace can not only help you determine the right solution, but can also help you build your budget. Attend product demonstrations with the right people—that includes the employees who will be using the software as well as IT officials.
3. Consider long-term goals.
What’s the point of transformation if it can’t help you in the long run? You should not just be striving to fix your current problems, but setting up a solution that can tackle new problems as they emerge. Look for a configurable solution that provides the flexibility to change as your business changes.
