New Year’s resolutions are not limited to individuals. In fact, 2021 can be a fresh start to improve your company’s processes, communication, productivity and bottom line.
Here are seven New Year’s Resolutions to improve your business and its processes.
Boost your cyber security
Don’t procrastinate when it comes to additional safety measures. As your employees continue to work remotely – whether that’s from their homes or the field site – quit worrying about unsecure data, applications and networks. Protect your company and your employees from hackers and breaches with access to safety features from Microsoft D365 and the Azure Cloud.
Improve your bottom line
You deserve to see your money grow. Make the most you can by connecting all of your systems to one Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Integrate Internet of Things (IoT) devices and data from wearable technologies into your system and use analytical tools to make accurate predictions and informed decision making.
Enhance your communication tools
Sending manual paper and spreadsheets, delivering paper daily logs and timesheets and deploying multiple stakeholders to the field for progress tracking and updates is a thing of the past. In 2021, look to cloud-based systems and apps that instantly connect and engage all of your stakeholders. Think direct communication, faster work order or leave approvals and instant modifications to construction site plans.
Stop delaying updates
How many times have you pushed an ERP update further down your ‘to-do’ list? We understand the time and money involved. But, keeping your system up-to-date is one of the easiest ways to take advantage of improved functionality, quality and efficiency.
Be more productive
Automated systems streamline processes and free up employees for more strategic tasks and projects. Configurable role-based access gives all users in the field their assigned projects and tasks. Combined, with the ability to prevent equipment downtime and prolong equipment life with an equipment management system, you can make an immediate impact in the field.
Gift some new tech
Make 2021 the year you reward your employees with new tech to make their jobs easier! There’s a project manager, HR or payroll professional, IT professional, skilled craft or subcontractor who would appreciate some new tech tools that help make their work more productive. Better yet, you can even reward yourself with a system to gain better insight and real-time data capture. Whether it’s an automated payroll system, an updated ERP system, or cloud-based daily log or time and attendance solutions, there’s something that can be sure to make everyone happy.
Set performance goals
New Year’s resolutions wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to track improvement goals. Elevate employee performance by efficiently developing, communicating and implementing clear and specific individual goals. Set, review and monitor the progress of employee goals, with the flexibility to continue aligning them with the job and the organizational goals.
