Unlocking your Company's Potential for Success

Unlocking your Company's Potential for Success

04/22/2019

Enterprises achieve success through the products and services they provide, but underpinning these are a range of operational tasks and processes. When these are inefficient, they take management time and attention away from the core business.  

 

Find More Time to Focus on Core Business

Time-consuming tasks such as managing incoming and outgoing mail, reconciling data and dealing with invoicing are a necessary part of running a business. Small businesses can become overwhelmed because they have to do more things with less people. Owners and managers often ‘wear many hats’ and take on a range of roles to keep the business running smoothly.  

Manual, standalone processes are not only be time-consuming but error-prone. What’s more, they are notoriously difficult to scale, so bottlenecks can develop in busy periods and as enterprises expand. This can result in missed targets and unnecessary restrictions on growth.  

Automate and Digitize to Unlock Potential 

The preparation of outgoing mail includes several tedious tasks: folding documents to go into envelopes, weighing mail, applying postage and going to the Post Office. Automating just one facet of an operational process, whether through hardware or software, or an outsourcing solution can alleviate time pressures and unlock potential success. It allows staff to refocus their attention and expertise where it is most critical - serving customers and growing the business.  

Data management and the preparation of communications is another process that can be easily improved through automation. Output management software centralizes communications for better tracking and visibility.  With the right equipment and software, companies can streamline a range of business processes that can: 

·         Increase productivity by automating tasks, such as those involved in mail preparation and data validation  

·         Improve accuracy by minimizing manual and paper-based processes that can result in mislaid or lost documents and mistakes in data  

·         Increase customer satisfaction by giving customers choice over how they receive communications, such as by mail or email, and by improving communications consistency 

·         Reduce costs by combining multiple mailings meant for the same customer or sending communications digitally.

Most small businesses can unlock potential through process improvements that help them manage time and costs and meet rising customer expectations while providing them with the agility to adapt to changing demands.
