However successful your company is, there will always be room for improvement – it’s a desire to constantly seek these opportunities out that separates a good business owner from a great one
The way in which you use technology will have a significant impact on the success of your business these days. It’s no longer enough to simply have these powerful systems in place – employees must know how to get the best out of them. It doesn’t have to be all about complex training schedules, though; there are plenty of little things you can do to make a difference too. Here are just a few examples.
Share your calendars
This may sound a bit too obvious to some but it’s something that so many businesses fail to think of. Your email solution, whether it’s Outlook or an alternative, will likely have an integrated calendar feature allowing you to arrange meetings with colleagues. Once all of this data is shared across the company, it should be easier and quicker to make arrangements around other events. Double-booking need never be a problem!
Your business likely specialises in one or, at most, a handful of things. There will, therefore, be a fair few everyday tasks that take a little longer than they should, whether it’s basic admin or web content management. These are the things you should be looking to outsource.
While it may seem like a step backwards to pay someone else to do a task you are capable of completing yourself, outsourcing is likely to work out cheaper in the long run. Remember, the people who specialise in these tasks will be able to complete them quickly and to a higher standard, leaving you with more time to focus your attention on other, more critical areas of the business.
Install an analytics solution
Data will tell you a lot about your customers, so it makes sense to use it properly. Social and web analytics tools, for instance, will generate plenty of valuable information to help you maximise the effectiveness of your online presence. Also, put dome faith in your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system – the more you know, the better position you’ll be in to meet your target audience’s needs.
