Know When To Automate – Friday Distraction

by Sharlyn Lauby on April 19, 2013

We all don’t have to be early adopters. We do need to know when it’s time to jump on the bandwagon.

It reminds me of this conversation I keep having with myself about cloud computing. Now that the latest version of Office 365 has launched, I’m thinking…it’s time to take the plunge. I’m a little nervous. What if my data gets messed up? But I can’t let that hold me back. Because I know that at some point, my current system will start to impact my productivity and it will cost my business more.

Check out today’s cartoon from our friends at Kronos. I remember managers who would keep track of employee schedules in their head. Then it became a piece of paper. But we don’t have to do that anymore. Everything can be managed online and/or with your tablet. Sweet!

When was the last time you took a look at your manual processes and asked “I wonder if we can automate this?”
