A truly successful business must run like a well-oiled machine. It’s a bit cliche to use that expression, but it is also a deliberate pointing out of the importance of changing times. Using a dated expression in a publication about new technology amplifies the need to stay current at all times and in all places. This issue looks at two more important examples of that.
A business needs technology, indeed, but implementing software without also standardizing workflow processes is like putting a suit jacket on over your pjs to dress for a business meeting—it only does a half-way job of achieving its purpose. Check out Standardized Workflow & Powerful Integration for all the ways BuildCentrix has evolved with features that help your company get the whole job done.
People are our biggest asset. A happy, productive workforce means a smooth-running, profitable business—but the opposite is also true. When your people resist change and cling to “the way things were” the implementation process slows and, if business owners aren’t careful, will eventually hit a wall. So, what to do?
Remember, fear of change is exactly that: fear. Will I understand it? Will I struggle and look foolish if I don’t get it right away? Will the technology take away my job? Will in change how I feel about my job? These are all things a hesitant workforce is thinking, so put your guard down and deal with fear as fear. Check out People and Technology for more suggestions.
As always, the BuildCentrix team is here to help you through any stage of implementation or change, so reach out. You won’t regret it.
