What Happens When ‘Quick And Easy’ Becomes The Problem?

The use of multiple software tools to resolve the build up of problems that your organisation is attempting to overcome may seem like the simplest method of improving operational excellence, but is this truly the case?

For many it can only amplify other difficulties already prevalent in a company at the price of a quick win.

In truth the only way to have your business to grow with the use of a software is to have one that is singular, centralised and internally connected. This will allow for complete transparency, increase cross-departmental communication, and guarantee absolute compliance with internal and external policies and procedures.

Modern technology systems have developed so much that as consumers we are inundated with choices.

Innovation that started with the intention of allowing companies to focus on their core competencies through digital transformation has only increased complexity rather than productivity.

Information technology systems aim to build solutions around specific requirements for their clients but end up ignoring the bigger picture, which is having connected systems that can drive economic growth.

How does this affect me?

The complication of poor software system connectivity is also evident outside of the workplace in the form of modern streaming services. For example, the average person subscribes to 2.8 streaming services- with nearly 10% paying for more than five streaming services at any given time.

This overabundance of choice, at an admittedly lower cost, may be causing more difficulties than they are solving. A study of 6,634 streaming service customers found that 70% of those surveyed believe there are too many options providing the same style of product.

The idea that each streaming platform is adding value to the customers is in many ways a myth. 45% of users claim that the multitude of choices can be frustrating to identify content specific to them. With 65% stating they find jumping between systems too difficult and time-consuming.

How does this relate professionally?

For many companies looking for substantial economic growth, they are constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to quickly improve their efficiency and productivity. They find a problem; they fix it.

In doing so they are beginning to collect a library of systems and platforms all offering a unique means of excelling the organisation beyond the means of any other in the industry. They can promise a wide range of tools and networks that at the end of the day may only provide an individual solution.

Many companies and organisations have become reliant on many of these systems and do not see a means of escaping these one-trick tools and software without completely shutting up shop. They realise quite quickly that there are huge underlying issues with integration, building connections and APIs.

Establishing a means to integrate various components with the bespoke services companies offer can be incredibly difficult. The technology in these systems makes it almost impossible to use one another concurrently as each is looking to have its value proposition.

Pretty soon the quick and easy solution has become the obstacle.

What is the resolution?

The resolution is simple, centralised, connected systems!

All-in-one software that has a wide range of applications and modules for companies to pick and choose from. Organisations must avoid integrating numerous systems that offer limited innovation and restricted economic growth.

The implementation of connected systems through individual software has the potential to build an infrastructure based on communication, security, productivity, and reliability. This can stem the flow of rising costs caused by individual software companies increasing their subscription fees, or the hours of resources needed to be spent on employee training across multiple systems.

Can this be achieved?

So, what can a singular, centralised software system do for you and your company? Can it provide you with a wide range of unique processes based on your operations core competencies? Even better can it improve upon it in any way?

Here are just a few of the major benefits and improvements that your company could see with the use of a centralised workforce platform.

  • Improve Collaboration

Certain employees and departments are responsible for individual elements relating only to them and their team. Having access to a shared platform internally in your organisation has the potential to create a greater culture of communication.

While building a network that promotes cross-departmental collaboration, your company can benefit from an encouraged attitude toward knowledge sharing and promote complete transparency over project status and updates.

Having a centralised data repository will further improve data consistency and avoid potential loss of information.

  • Standardised Workflows

Using several systems to achieve collective corporate goals is counterintuitive when it comes to streamlining processes.

Implementing different types of information technology and software systems can be the very enemy of consistency in terms of developing procedural excellence.

Only through uniform processes across all departments is it possible to reduce confusion, improve quality, increase knowledge transfer, and allow employees to focus on their core competencies.

  • Security of Data and Information

Safety in information technology is of key importance to the digital transformation of every industry, be it manufacturing, engineering, construction or healthcare. Data security is a priority for professionals across all sectors.

With the recent development in GDPR compliance and overall concern around the protection of client and employee personal information, connected systems must have strong reliability.

But there is no benefit to having a secure information technology database if employees don’t have simple access to this intelligence. Knowledge sharing and clear and transparent communication networks are pivotal to having employees connected.
