There are three commonly talked about P’s for business success: people, process, and product. Being able to effectively manage each of these can improve productivity and profit. We’re lucky that operating in a digital environment increases accessibility to useful technology, which can help focus on people, process, and product with great efficiency.
Cloud-Based Collaboration Tools for Businesses
Collaboration is important for many industries, opening up new perspectives, ideas, and strategies to improve projects and tasks. There are many companies that choose to employ remote workers or have adapted hybrid models, meaning they must account for staff offsite. This can create a disruption to the usual collaborative process.
Cloud collaboration bridges the gap between onsite and offsite staff in hybrid workplaces. Applications, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and more have boomed in popularity following the pandemic. These softwares increase accessibility, communication, and collaboration, in turn boosting productivity in the workplace.
Cloud Computing For Efficiency
Onsite storage requires a lot of manual and continuous maintenance. Setting up hardwares and softwares can become time consuming for in-house IT departments, keeping them from other more pressing tasks.
As an alternative, companies can utilise offsite data management. Cloud computing is an effective means of storing all important data, information, and resources. The process removes the need for tedious maintenance tasks and provides the opportunity to engage with Managed Services Providers that alleviate the stress from in-house IT experts.
Redirect Meetings to Technology
Since the pandemic, many meetings have had to be conducted online. Initially this was a burden and disruption to the usual business processes. However, with many companies being able to return to in-person meetings, it’s been observed that these online meetings in many cases were much more time efficient and the preferred method for communication.
Migrating meetings to online programs, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Cisco Webex, can free up more time and boost productivity. With online meetings there’s no need for travel time or arranging locations, which in turn creates a more accessible meeting space. Additionally, the small talk element that flows so easily at in-person meetings is reduced.
Managing Technological Risks
Technology, like everything, has its benefits and downfalls. One such downside is that there is a certain amount of risk in storing your data. There are many things that pose threats to your important information, including natural disasters, cyber attacks, employee errors, and power outages. Major disruptions like this can have hugely negative effects on productivity in the workplace.
One of the benefits of technology is that there are ways to manage this risk. Offsite data storage and management is a great way to prevent disruptions to daily processes. As mentioned earlier, cloud computing is effective at increasing productivity of in-house IT departments, but it also minimises the risk of and the impact of devastations.
