Operations Assessment

We can help you improve efficiency and reduce errors of your operations

Operations - All About Efficiency

Technology has been disrupting the work force and will continue to do so at a speedy pace. Businesses that adapt to and implement the use of various technologies will stay on top of the competition.

The proper use of technology will greatly improve the efficiency of your day-to-day operations by doing three things - increase productivity, reduce errors, and reduce cost.

Some Examples...

Warehouse and inventory operations often require the use of barcode scanners to manage inventory records. Mobile computers with barcode scanners can often cost a fortune. Did you know that there are barcode enclosures for iOS and Android devices such as iPods? You can purchase barcode enclosures that have IP durability ratings on par with industrial grade scanners, at half the cost.

For any effective operation you need procedures put in place to ensure quality output. These procedures, if performed by employees, can often be fully or partially replaced with technology. Spending a one-time fee to develop a technology solution to perform these procedures can be an extremely cost-effective strategy in the long run.

For example, if you operate a help desk and reports indicate a good portion of calls you receive is about password resets. Then a self-serve password reset solution, perhaps web-based or through automated email/phone/SMS verifications, may be a good investment.

If you operate in an office environment, it is no news that multiple monitors can improve productivity, and yet, not all businesses are making that small investment.
