Simplifying your business processes seems like it should be easy enough, but as investor Warren Buffett suggests “There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.”
The negative impact of complex and messy business processes on any company’s productivity and employee morale is damaging. More often than not you’ll find that daily admin tasks become time consuming yet tedious necessities, they are pushed to the back of the pile despite their importance because they don’t offer an initial reward.
We all know that complex systems hinder more than just our time, often they impact upon our overall productivity, money and success. In an effort to resolve these issues we have come up with a concept that is the driving force behind our app – #GetSimplifyd. We have made it our goal to improve upon these simple daily processes making them even easier! Yet still suitable to complete your tasks efficiently and produce the desired outcomes.
Below I have suggested a few key areas and quick tips to get you started on your journey to simplification!
Centralise your business management.
This is perhaps the most important. One of the easiest ways to get more of your time back is to centralise your business management. Simplifyd does this for you through utilising an online dashboard to streamline all of your mundane business processes. Providing you with a clear snapshot of your business’s activities – financial health, customer interaction, project planning, and much more. Once your profile is set up you can instantly start centralising your key processes, resulting in increased productivity and business potential.
In today’s digital world a surprising number of people still resort to manual means of organisation. In comparison to the digital alternatives these are not only time consuming but can also create a scattered and disorganised workplace, one which fails to respond to important tasks quickly. Convoluting business processes just leads to a cluttered mind, space, and business strategy. Instead, here at Simplifyd we have incorporated invoicing, estimates, a calendar and other daily functions to help you automate and organise your business day.
Lets talk invoicing and tracking your business health.
In a recent survey conducted by Sage they found that 71% of small businesses still use Microsoft Word or Excel to create invoices. Valuable time is wasted inputting invoices and scattering important data across numerous documents. With Simplifyd’s invoice and money specific tools you can now limit your money management stress and instead increase your amount of productive time. We wanted to create a tool that would allow you to complete an invoice in as little as 4 clicks and have clear dashboards that allow you to track your company’s revenue, visually seeing what’s going in and out, so you’ll never be left in the dark.
