Productivity tools are supposed to make you more…productive….

If they are not embedded properly within your business, tasks can actually end up taking a lot longer than they actually should. This is frustrating for everyone. It wastes time, and costs money – the opposite of being productive.

So, how can this happen?

Often, a lack of consistent training means that everyone is using tools differently or finding their own workarounds. Maybe the tools haven’t been properly integrated with other apps, creating additional work, or, perhaps employees simply don’t find some tools useful and end up giving up on them.

Bringing new technology into your business can be a big step – so big that a lot of owners try to avoid it completely. That might be because of understandable risk aversion, or because they do not have enough information to choose the right solution from the thousands of available options. This is not helped by the fact that nearly all the tools work differently and offer different advantages.

What most business owners need is expert help. It is easy to say that you plan to introduce new productivity tools to keep employees happy, and to gain a competitive advantage, but in practice it is a lot more involved. One thing that is for sure, as AI solutions become more and more integrated into new solutions – and others in your industry start to benefit from the new tech landscape – businesses that don’t keep up, risk being left behind.

Working with professionals can not only help to identify the most suitable tools for your business, but also, to help get the most from them by ensuring all your people are fully trained. That means you will not only be getting all the productivity benefits you hoped for from your investment, you will also have a more engaged, better skilled and more productive workforce.
