Evaluate Your Business Now… Before Adopting a New Solution

Evaluate Your Business

Many companies make the same mistake of transferring their existing policies and practices into a new solution without taking into context the possibility of streamlined benefits that can come from an evaluation period. Look at your business. How long have your policies been in place? When was the last time that a procedure was analysed, scrutinized, or modified? Has it been months or years, or even worse, decades?
Still getting a signature from a manger to approve something? Still waiting on IT to make you a custom report? Still asking 5 people to get the latest status on a project to be sure? Do you have 15 different locations with 15 different time off policies in each? While it’s inevitable that some situations can never truly be fully streamlined or simplified, you still have to ask the question…”now that we have a new solution in front of us, can we possibly leverage its features to improve our business?

With the adoption of any new product or system you have a perfect opportunity and moment in time to pause, evaluate, and re-envision business operations as a whole. Find new shortcuts, make a new policy, ditch a procedure that’s been ineffective for years. If you don’t, you risk plugging in old bad habits into a new solution, and not take full advantage of what it may have to offer.

There are dozens of topics to focus on:

  • Security & Access
  • Job Duties & Responsibility
  • Process Flow
  • Universal Policy Management
  • Cost Controls
  • Billing & Invoicing
  • Time Management & Scheduling
  • Facilitating Real-Time Data Access
  • Improved User Experience
  • HR Functions
  • Project Controls
  • Project Assignments
  • Reporting Improvements
  • Reporting Automation
  • Visibility & Auditing
  • Corporate Standardization
  • Mobile Workforce
  • Improved Communication Channels
  • 3rd Party Integrations
  • Speedier Payroll
  • and many others!
