Show ‘em who’s Boss: Watch Olympics at Work AND Boost Your Productivity

4 Pinnacles of an IT Evaluation

So, you just want to take another peek at volleyball champion Kerri Walsh Jennings or can’t control the urge to find out the latest on record-breaking Olympian Michael Phelps. Oops…whose shadow is that looming over your monitor as you, red-faced, try to change screens and open your official inbox in one smooth move? Boss alert!

Note to self: I will not watch live, hi-def Olympic events on YouTube in office. Or read about them on CBS and BBC News. Or Google gymnasts and stare blankly at their images.

Sound familiar? You can rest easy and join your organization, town, state, country and you get the drift, the rest of the world in the compulsive, global addiction that is London Olympics 2012. This phenomenon has serious repercussions like a city computer emergency. Also, predictably, the bosses don’t like it. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the Los Angeles Times: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/07/olympics-los-angeles-city-stop-watching.html.

But wait, what if you could watch the Olympics without letting it affect your work and keep your boss in a good mood, all at the same time? Hey, you could even catch some events together during a coffee break! Impossible, you say?

Possible. If you thought time tracking was only about invoicing and billable hours, think again. At Replicon, we can make your watching-Olympics-at-office dreams come true with our hassle-free, cloud-based timesheet solution. You can use it to easily keep tabs on your work day so you know exactly how much time you spend on live coverage and feeds. This will let you focus on your work without any stress or guilt, thus improving your productivity instead of hampering it.

You are the Champion

If senior management continues to complain, use the magic word: Flexi-time. Ask them to allow a fixed amount of time for employees to watch the Olympics together. This can be tracked using Replicon’s time management tools, enabling an empathy-based work culture that mixes work with play.

Want more? Here are some ways in which effective time-tracking can ensure you emerge the winner:

Get work done: Like a silent sidekick, we will unobtrusively make sure you stay on top of all your work commitments with enough time allotted for your Olympic diversions. You will have our 1.5 million users in 70 countries for company as you balance both worlds perfectly.

Simple and accurate: You won’t have to waste any time in figuring out our easy-to-use solution. Our smart interface will allow you to get started in a few minutes. You can rustle up accurate reports and surprise your boss who will happily look the other way when you get your games on!

Always and everywhere: Snuck out to your friendly, neighborhood café to watch women’s soccer? No sweat. You can track time from your iPhone or Android thingamabob and still make your deadlines.

On cloud nine: Our guaranteed uptime of 99.5% and impregnable environment will result in a synergy of your Olympic viewing and work relationships, boosting your productivity and that of your colleagues.

Happy unapologetic watching!
