startup stories, trends and digital lifestyle hacks
Tech has become inextricably linked to the success of many of the world’s top businesses. But there are still those who are tentative when it comes to allowing more of it in their lives. You might very well have a lot of hardware set up to give people the tools they need to do basic admin or to email one another. But the software you could introduce could change so much about how they work, how much you get done, and how successful the business is.
Here are the three big ways software can change your entire world.
Bring the team together
Communication is the oil that keeps the team moving without causing friction with one another. You can help them communicate better by setting standards of how the request help or how they set aside time for checking emails or making phone calls. But the right internal communication software can make things run all the smoother. For instance, for large collaborative efforts, project management software can help people stay organized and know their role no matter what anyone else is doing. Cloud software makes it much easier to share critical information without having to physically send it to someone. Video conferencing can make team meetings more productive no matter where they are.
Systemize those processes
Then take a look at how people are actually doing the work they’re hired to do. For all of the most job critical processes, there is usually a piece of software that can make it go a lot easier. There’s accounting software for accountants. There’s timekeeping, scheduling, and work-delegating software for managers. For designers, there are things like AutoCAD software. Even in more specific jobs, printed circuit board design software can help those in electronic component design. Define the most important process to every member of staff and see if the time they could save by using the software designed to help them is worth the investment.
Do less, get more done
Not only will this save you plenty of time, allowing you to focus on other parts of the business. It also gets rid of a lot of potential for human error that could be holding the business back. It still needs some supervision to make sure there are no errors but the help it provides could be invaluable.
The best way to look at what kind of software you need is to look at how what processes take up the most of your time in business. Is it communication? Is it design? Is it admin work that you would rather die than keep doing? There are solutions for all of them, so take a look at what’s available.The best way to look at what kind of software you need is to look at how what processes take up the most of your time in business.
