Optimizing Productivity Tools:

Once you have identified the essential tools, the next step is to optimize them to enhance efficiency. 

One of the most important things: the best productivity tools never stand still. They are always evolving and adapting to the needs of customer. 

How do you know you have the right product before you optimise? This is what article 1 is about. The time and investment required during the discovery phase of the technology tools help identify the best solutions will pay dividends when these tools, combined with workflows, produce substantial efficiencies and enhance new ways of working. 

An effective optimisation strategy starts with the end in mind: how do you see the tools working together to enhance productivity? It is not necessary to have a meticulous detail plan. A high level view of basic requirements will suffice, and when you have the right technology partners – this comes together with continuous innovation and improvement to meet your needs as a business owner.

Here are some practical tools to consider when looking to optimise these tools for improved enhancements and efficiencies. 

  1. Training and Onboarding:

Offer comprehensive training and onboarding for team members  to familiarize themselves with new tools. Provide them with resources such as tutorials and manuals.


  1. Regular Assessment and Feedback:

Periodically assess the effectiveness of the tools by soliciting feedback from the team. Make necessary adjustments or switch tools if they are not meeting the organization’s objectives.


  1. Integration:

Ensure that the tools are well-integrated. For instance, your project management software should be able to communicate effectively with your file-sharing application. 


  1. Security Measures:

Establish stringent security protocols to protect sensitive information. Regularly update software and educate employees on cybersecurity best practices.
