I’ve seen it time and time again. Businesses get complacent with their existing procedures and methods of accomplishing tasks and often miss out on the tremendous advantages that technology is making. The technology that can cut their work in half often confuses them and they dismiss it.

The hard truth of the matter is that most of the time, there is software out there that can reduce the time of everyday tasks for businesses.

How businesses can break free of complacency

Don’t be afraid to try new things

The first and critical leap for discovering new technologies is not to be afraid to try them in the first place! Many companies setup a test box to see if an application can provide some value to the business. Worse comes to worse, you simply wasted a tiny bit of time investigating an application. In the best case, your investment in investigate the new application could save tons of time everyday. If time is an issue, hire a consulting firm to come in a try the application for you.

Look for opportunities to automate tasks

Just because your company has been putting together a monthly newsletter through the regular mail for over 10 years doesn’t mean that you can’t find ways to automate the task. For example, to help automate the task of sending newsletters to customers, try using an online e-mail newsletter to automate the task of creating and mailing the newsletters. Not only does it save time and money, but it also reduces the chance that there will be any errors! Automating monotonous tasks will save businesses tons of money and your secretaries who put together the newsletters will thank you!

Get the team involved

Have a monthly meeting with employees and discuss the most inefficient things your business does. It probably won’t be something you will want to hear, but it’s important to know so that you can address them. More often than not, there is a software solution that can help alleviate the burden of the task or even completely automate it!
