The use of technology in the workplace ensures that business productivity is maximized and enable people to focus on value-adding activities. Targeted business productivity software enable organizations to gain the right tools in performing daily tasks. Productivity is achieved when some processes are automated and communication is facilitated.
Creating an open and communicative environment
This would be facilitated with software that eliminate barriers to communication. Emails are good solutions for communication but they are sometimes more private. Companies can also provide their employees with collaborative tools such as forums or online knowledge bases where they would be able to share information across different branches and departments.
Virtually Connect Teams
Teams can be connected virtually through employee portals or team sites. This would enable people to share their work and feedback rapidly across different physical locations and in different branches. This would enable effective and quick problem-solving. Employees would be able to share their expertise right from their PCs without having to move and without having to use the phone with remote desktop sharing software.
Time-tracking systems can be implemented to track attendance and working hours in order to effectively reward employees based on attendance. Some time clocks offer online systems. Employees can consult their time clock online and monitor their attendance in order to improve it.
