Have you ever been frustrated by a daily process or task that seems to consume considerable time but has no visible benefit to yourself or your customers? Do you ever think to yourself, "A monkey could do this chore?” Don't worry, because you are not alone.

In today's modern workplace, buzz words like "efficiency," "'streamline" and "lean principles" are all the rage. This interest is aimed at allowing an employee to focus as much time as possible on value-adding activities that benefit either internal or external customers rather than paperwork or other labor-intensive tasks.

But in today's competitive environment, if we can’t give every one of our customers extraordinary service--someone else will. So if we all know this to be true, why then are we spending so much time forwarding each other email inquiries, answering simple questions over a chain of text messages and searching through long lists to identify the proper manager to approve a request?

The quick answer is that we shouldn’t be.

Focusing on non-value adding tasks is wasteful.  And reducing time spent on these activities can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. 

Through proper management with your Macola 10 ERP solution and Automated Workflows, Macola can help you. Together we can take all your simple, yet time-consuming tasks from multiple outside systems and combine them in a single location.
