Most of us are on a constant quest for the next big thing. From tech gadgets to career milestones, we’re always wondering, “What’s next?” So much so that both our personal and professional lives are packed to the brim with never-ending to-do lists and calendars that leave us wishing for our own personal assistants some (err most) days!
In this fast-paced, tech-driven society, sometimes the best thing we can do is take a step back from our day-to-day routine and re-evaluate what should stay and what should go. Sure, we’re a few months late for that annual Spring-cleaning, but with the first week of August being coined National Simplify Your Life Week, now’s the perfect time to rid our lives of all that excess clutter!
In the corporate world, it can become a job in and of itself just to keep up with the latest breakthroughs promising to make our lives “easier.” From internal messaging to complicated project management platforms, many of these tools can just create more headaches and longer workdays.
So, what’s the good news? While there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution for simplifying your life, there are tools out there that do, in fact, pull their weight. In honor of National Simply Your Life Week, we’re taking a look at a few of our clients (ok, we’re a little biased) that are delivering on their promises!
- Streamline operations to improve business insights. Many small to mid-size companies face a growth challenge – not having a clear overview of company resources can severely limit growth and dramatically complicate business. But simplifying daily operations like resource allocation, time and expense tracking and invoicing is as simple as implementing a business management platform. Vorex brings all of these functions into a single cloud-based solution that’s easy to use and – here’s the good part – won’t break the bank! With improved insight and streamlined operations, growth initiatives are easier to identify – and easier to achieve.
- Dial smarter, not harder!TCN, another cloud-based solution, is helping call center organizations grow profitability, even increasing successful contacts by up to 300 percent! Many enterprises, contact centers, business process outsourcing (BPO) and collection agencies face challenges with meeting company goals using outdated on-premise dialing solutions. TCN provides robust technology that enables them to dial faster, remain compliant with industry regulations and, most importantly, improve overall efficiency. By optimizing dialing capabilities -handling both more inbound and outbound calls – these organizations can dramatically increase profitability!
- Simplify team communications. Closing our loop is Incentive, a complete, social intranet that delivers real-time communication all in one place. We’ve all been there (and some of us are still there) – juggling a handful of internal platforms that create more work than they help us solve. Not to mention all of the passwords we have to remember. Incentive solves this “platform fatigue” issue by providing companies of all shapes and sizes with real-time group messaging, document management, improved task management and integrations to enhance intra-company communication, collaboration and productivity. It boils down to providing your team with the platform and tools to “Getting Stuff Done Together!
While cleaning out that storage closet this week probably isn’t at the top of anyone’s to-do list, we should all agree to slow down and become aware of those things we should eliminate from our lives. Sure, our schedules might not magically clear up anytime soon, but taking a few moments to de-clutter can be the first step toward reaching a more simple and fulfilling day-to-day routine!
