The New Year is upon us, which means it’s time to sit down, evaluate old practices, analyze the good and the bad of 2017, and make a commitment to shape 2018 for the better.
Within your agency, there are different levels of management, all attempting to work in tandem for workflow and product development. Your Traffic Managers are doing their best to keep all departments simplified and streamlined; but we all know, like everything, it’s much easier said than done. Process organization is something everyone struggles with, which is why we’re going to make the case for getting (and staying) organized in 2018.
Here are a few reasons why you should make organization an early, integral component to your 2018 plan:
- Positive Mentality: Right now, your employees are on the “new year, new me” bandwagon, way more susceptible to changes than they will be mid-July. Everyone expects things to change at least a little bit in January. We all tell ourselves we’re going to eat better and work out more, so throwing new organization systems into the mix is going to make sense to your employees. Play along with the New Years Resolutions attitudes.
- Improved Productivity: Streamlining organization and communication between departments always results in improved processes, which means more productivity. More productivity means more sales, and more sales means more revenue! If you were unhappy with where you ended Q4, it’s time assess the root causes. Traffic is where you need to go before you reflect on anything else.
- Streamlined Communication: Being able to quickly, accurately, and transparently communicate with individuals in your organization is integral to any business. Consider a faster, more convenient messaging system that works with all kinds of employees, even those that need to take on more of a remote role. Don’t limit your organization to technology of the past.
- Financial Management: Is your billing and time sheet system all over the place? Tracking down this information can be a serious hindrance to your agency’s performance. If your 2017 was characterized by financial blunders, it’s time to consider how much time (and peace of mind) you’ll save by getting out in front of your agency in 2018.
If you want to streamline communication, centralize billing and time sheets, improve upon workplace productivity, and cater to employee sentiment, consider CurrentTrack. Able to manage increased volumes of work and the intricacies of organization across departments, CurrentTrack contains traffic management, messaging, time and expense management, reporting, client access, archiving and retrieval, accurate billing, employee management, workback schedules, and hosted solutions.
If not for the success of your business, consider organizing your entity in 2018 for both you and your employee’s mental well-being. Make 2018 the year that’s not characterized by massive cross-department organizational meltdowns (it’s ok, we’ve all been there). Consider CurrentTrack for your workflow process.
