One of the biggest problems we see at many companies we visit are overworked staff in the back office. We see many of them are just trying to survive, getting their work done with the tools given to them with no understanding or knowledge how to make work more enjoyable or free up time for customer service, innovation or taking on more work.
With the rapid expansion of the internet, the increased digitization of data and rapid decrease in technology costs, employees and companies can now put in a office automation system that will reduce overtime, processing times and improve morale.
To begin building your office automation system, I recommend you ask three questions:
- What process or tasks causes me the most stress or anxiety that I would like to have an office automation system take over?
- If there is one task that I would like an office automation system to take over, what would it be?
- What would be the benefits to me and our company be by putting in this office automation system?
The benefits of asking these three questions is it will begin to activate your creativity and allow to begin to see that cost effective solutions to automate your problems are now available to you. It will allow you to ‘connect the dots’ by seeing how leveraging a bit of technology at the right task or step in the process will generate huge returns.
In conclusion, identifying opportunities for a office automation system is not hard. It just takes effort to slow down and pay attention to what is going on around you. You will be surprised how easy the answers appear to how an office automation system can benefit your work and business.
