So while it’s difficult to schedule the time to look at how technology can help you spend less time on admin tasks – it’s usually pays off quickly both in time saved and headaches reduced.
TechRadarPro recently ran an article with a bunch of tech tips to help you consider how you can save time and reduce efforts doing the stuff you might not love and have more time for you passion. Here’s just one idea…
Simplify back-end processes and streamline communication
Consider using websites such as Torpio or Zapier to automate tedious dual data entry. Using application programming interface (API) technology, employees and business owners can automate data retrieval and modification, freeing up valuable time for more important activities, such as brainstorming the next product upgrade or business expansion plan.
It’s clear that email is at the core of small businesses’ customer interactions, and many people have multiple inboxes, making it even more of a challenge to keep all those messages straight. Since we’re constantly using infinite combinations of phone, fax, text messages and video conferencing to stay in touch, bringing all of these methods into one streamlined communication plan will ensure clear messages are received by all and turned directly into workflows.
By combining all of their communications into one central location, teams can better communicate and share information, allowing for faster access to important details across the company.
