You may be at a point where you feel like your workplace production has taken a huge dive recently. Employees not working to the top of their ability or projects not being completed on time. The reason may not be the first that you jump to, it could be the systems you have in place that’s affecting the way your employees work. The systems you have in place at your business interact with your employees work every single day so it’s vital that you review it constantly to ensure that if there’s any way you can improve efficiency, that you go for it.
Kinly bring you three ways of improving workplace production, mainly using video conferencing platforms!
Bring Employees Together With Communication Software
Effective communication is at the very top of the list when it comes to reviewing your workplace. How do your employees interact with each other on a day-to-day basis? You may find that the systems you have in place for communication are vastly outdated or just don’t adapt to the user needs.
Miscommunication can often lead to profit losses on a massive scale, a report from 2013 stated that “a survey of 400 companies with 100,000 employees each cited an average loss per company of $62.4 million per year because of inadequate communication to and between employees” Now regardless of how big your company may be, it’s still an issue.
Luckily on the market Microsoft offer the Microsoft Surface Hub and Cisco offer Cisco WebEx Teams that provide a great communication tool for every employee. You’ll see a huge boost in productivity after bringing them in and after the initial cost, profit increases.
Task Management Software
Projects being delayed happens, but when it happens due to poor communication and software within the business, they’re easily changed to fix the problem.
Both the Microsoft Surface Hub and Cisco WebEx Teams come with ways to share your current tasks and update colleagues on your progress. Ensuring that when you get into a discussion with them to share ideas, you’re already aware of where the project is at any given time. This is vital for any business that wants to ensure their workforce is at peak performance.
Thankfully there's software comparison websites that help with the task of choosing task management software. Usually they include reviews, overviews, top features lists and costs. Technology Evaluation Centers has a detailed task management system comparison page that you can see here.
Make Every Second Count
Making every second count is good advice for many things in life, no more so than the workplace. Where you only have around 8 hours a day usually to get your tasks done and then you’re onto the next workday.
Platforms like Microsoft Surface Hub and Cisco WebEx Teams are setup to allow any user, on any device to connect and collaborate at a moment's notice. No matter where they are in the world, you can join that meeting and be instantly working together on the project.
The seconds wasted by a typical meeting room platform can’t be accepted when you want your business to grow, these seconds all add up to lose profit.
