The newspapers and newsfeeds are full of stories about the state of business, the economy and how the world is rapidly changing.

For the first time, the French Stock Exchange took over the London Stock Exchange in November 2022. Job vacancies are at an all-time high, and unemployment is lower than ever. Inflation continues to sit around the double-digit mark (and we all know that official figures only tell part of the story as we all see in the shops that bread is up by over 50% and price rises in real terms outstrip official figures), plus interest rates are volatile.

It all seems like a lot to take in. But as a business, whilst uncertainty isn’t what you want - it does offer an opportunity to shore up your current wins and take a holistic look at how your processes could be improved to better use your resources.

What does that all mean?

In short? No one knows. If you came looking for an answer, we’re sorry about that.

But management teams and boardrooms all over the globe are preparing for more of the same, with continued uncertainty being a critical factor in business planning for 2023.

It’s essential that organisations proactively streamline their operations, focusing on increasing efficiency wherever possible. Whilst hiring may stagnate, that doesn’t mean your existing workflows and processes can’t be improved upon to give your business more capacity.

Businesses need to be planning and checking the productivity levels of teams and identifying opportunities to generate better working practices for their staff.

How can you become more efficient as a business?

There are plenty of ways to become more efficient, save time and get more from your resources - but we believe the best way is through enacting better processes.

Just because something has been done one way for a long time doesn’t mean the new way is bad. Thanks to new technology and automation, businesses that invest in new processes save HUGE amounts of time every day, week, month and year.

For example, if you can reduce time of a process that you conduct 50 times a day by 5 seconds, that’s going to save you a day every year. That could be as simple as a macro set up on your keyboard, making typing out email responses that little bit faster.

Want more time? You got it. If you have a task your teams conduct every day, but you create an automation that saves you 30 minutes every day, you’ll save a whole week’s worth of time over a year.

Automations will transform your efficiency

There is no time like the present; the faster you integrate new automations into your processes, the more time you save. And the bigger your team, the bigger your savings will be.

Remember those statistics we just mentioned? Well, that’s per staff member. That’s right - just one person. But if you’re implementing automations company wide, you could save thousands and thousands of hours every year in capacity just by making small changes with our help.

Most commonly, the automations that are the easiest and most effective to implement are to do with simple tasks. The ones your staff dread. These tasks often lead to procrastination, missed deadlines, lower motivation and job satisfaction.

By removing these simple tasks from their workflow, you’re keeping your teams at a higher level of productivity for longer. Instead of getting distracted by nitty gritty emails, getting stuck in Excel, or sourcing data for reports - these can all be automated for your business, saving your team’s hours in the day for the more critical projects and processes that require human intervention.
