For most of us, we could easily think of a handful of things in our professional lives that could benefit from more efficient processes. Reason being, when we get more of the day-to-day business functions completed faster we have more time to focus on ideas, collaboration and business growth. But how do you start using your communication tools to foster a more efficient business culture? It begins by empowering those around you with the tools they need to get more done, quickly.
How Communication Impacts Efficiency
If you want to remain a stable and profitable organization within today’s increasingly competitive landscape, you must understand the risks of costly efficiency mistakes. This is especially the case with small or mid-sized companies. Due to limited resources and heightened financial risk, smaller organizations must embrace a culture with streamlined communications processes in order to get the most out of their employees and their communication tools.
Efficiency Tips and Tricks
So, how do you do it? Start with these helpful efficiency tips:
- Give your employees consistent and secure access to the information they need. Smaller organizations have the ability to react quickly to changes and events, but if your network is unstable and unsecured you can lose that competitive edge. Equip your staff with a secure and reliable network so they are able to gain access to the information they need, when they need it.
- Provide access from anywhere. If you truly want employees to remain productive and efficient, give them the ability to do so with access to the tools and resources they need to do that work. Using things like VPN services give them secure and instant access to their work from virtually anywhere.
- Use a “portable” phone system. Missing important phone calls and messages can cause missed opportunities, delays, and loss of revenue. With solutions like Mitel Communicator, you can take your phone system with you with one phone number that will ring on multiple devices. This ensures your customers can reach someone at any time – day or night. Additionally, your staff has access to all the communication tools they need like email, voicemail and instant messaging right at their fingertips.
- Simplistic system administration. Ensure your tools are easy-to-use. That means your administrators can quickly manage voice routing, voicemail, auto-attendant, conferencing, instant messaging, and basic automated call distribution (ACD) capabilities for every part of the network. This takes away the need for multiple management systems for different PBXs, sites, and basic applications. Integrated software distribution for voice switches, IP phones, and desktop applications helps to reduce support overhead and ensure system optimization.
