How Asset Tracking Saves Time and Money

Businesses are always looking for ways to be more efficient. But they don’t try to increase efficiency so they can take longer coffee breaks. The end goal of improving current processes is, of course, to reduce costs, increase revenue, and grow the business.

And so many operations have their eyes open for opportunities to work more efficiently. The question becomes, “how can you get significant results without dramatically altering the operations of  your organization?”  If you’re still tracking your assets and equipment the old-fashioned way, the answer is easier than you may think.

Technology Training for the Non-Tech Savvy

For most people, change is hard. If someone isn’t comfortable with technology, having to learn a new software or tech solution can be a negative experience. If you need to train people who are not tech-savvy, it’s important to know that their pushback against technology is natural and temporary. With the right approach, even the most stubborn hold-outs will adapt and be glad they did.

Here’s how the process usually goes:

  1. Find great technology solution
  2. Purchase great technology solution
  3. Roll out great technology solution
  4. No one uses great technology solution and business continues as it always has

Sound familiar? I bet you can think of at least one instance where this has happened in your company. Why is adopting new technology into our businesses so difficult? How do we get the people in our company to change?

The positive attitude and belief in a better way in a few people can help the rest of the employees change. Thought of the other way, bad attitudes, unchecked, can easily prevent change from taking place. Head those off with your own leaders.
