Streamlining your operations allows you to utilise your time, energy and resources in the most effective way, whilst positioning your business for optimal growth. For small to medium businesses streamlining and simplifying operational processes is a must.
When deciding on areas to streamline, don’t forget to evaluate the impact each one will have on your bottom line, customers, suppliers, employees and business partners. In this two-part post, we look at six ways that can help you to streamline your operations.
Go paperless where possible
One of the quickest ways to streamline your processes is to look at your paper flow. Paperwork and manual processes pile up and create bottlenecks and delays in a variety of areas. If your staff spend hours going through filing cabinets and storage boxes to find information they need, they are wasting precious time and energy. Look at the processes that can be improved by going paperless and move online.
It works the way you want! Microsoft Dynamics NAV looks and works like Microsoft Office which means that you can get to work immediately with no change-over delays. It is also role-tailored to give employees relevant insights for their day-to-day work with accurate and instantaneous information. Data that is so readily available can solve not only today’s problems but also plan for tomorrow. With its cloud and on-premise deployment, you also have the flexibility to choose to work when and where you want – at the office, at home, or on the road.
Empower your employees
Your employees know their jobs better than anyone else so involving them in streamlining processes can go a long way. Find out what their pain points are and what they need to become more efficient. Empower your employees with the information and tools they need to operate optimally.
If your sales or marketing teams need to wait to get to the office before they can action anything done out in the field, they are wasting time. Going mobile means your operations are streamlined and valuable customer information makes it into your system before anything important is lost along the way.
