Realizing the effects of an exhausting workflow on the people who love you, then insight and direction for optimizing that workflow to live a happier, and more fulfilling life outside the office!
MAKE TIME FOR WHAT TRULY MATTERS
Have you ever seen the heartbreak on your family’s face when you tell them you have to work instead of joining them somewhere fun? What about the devastated head-drop of your dog after she runs up to your desk with a ball, realizing you’re too busy to play? You most likely have. We all have. Our work world has become so chaotic and overloaded, there just isn’t enough time anymore. What we can’t get done in one day, rolls into the next, which rolls into the next. And at the end of the week, we’ve worked tirelessly, with little to show for it, and a task list as long as it started.
We’re aware of how our workload affects us, though few have stopped to consider how it affects the people who love us. So, think about it. Imagine those faces, and then imagine pure joy as you’re able to keep all the promises you’ve optimistically made.
INTEGRATIONS SAVE TIME (AND FRUSTRATION)
40% of productivity is lost to task switching, this shows that even if you’re as productive as you possibly can be within your current workflow, you’re still losing valuable time shuffling from one platform to another, just to finish a simple task.
But don’t pack your suitcases yet, just because you’ve employed a single platform integration. They work, it’s been proven, both in major studies from major publications, and in the real life of Michael Blakely, InterOperate’s CEO, and every client they’ve ever worked with. But only if done correctly.
SO HOW DO I ENSURE SUCCESS?
First, you may have to revitalize your current workflow. If you wrap a boiled egg in beautiful paper, it’s still going to smell. InterOperate was founded on and operates with a passion for dynamic productivity. Before even diving into development, we’ll collaborate with key players to map and optimize your workflow using work management best practices.
Then, it’s all about iPaaS! To really understand iPaas, read What’s For Dinner? The What, Why, and How of iPaaS Integrations. For this, all that’s essential to know is, your integration is only guaranteed to limit disruption, and truly make a difference, if it’s developed using iPaaS. Not only do we integrate on our own in-house iPaaS, but we’re also Workato’s Premier Integration Partner, modern enterprise leader, changing the game!
Finally, and some would say, most importantly, team-wide implementation. Without implementing your new and improved workflow correctly, it’s human nature to slide back to what’s known and comfortable. We understand that. That’s why our consultants employ the Science of Change Management to ensure team-wide adoption; securing the investment of not only the integration, but each individual platform.
GREAT, NOW WHAT?
Now, you get out there and live your life. With saved time and errors, enhanced inter-departmental collaboration, and valuable insights only accessible via unified visibility, your task list can finally shrink! And with a shrinking task list; pack those suitcases, keep those promises, make it to happy hour, play a round of fetch while the sun is still out.
