It’s the new year, and chances are you’ve made a resolution that relates to making your workplace more efficient and productive in 2016. You want your team to work smarter so you can be more profitable and focus on what makes your business great. Everyone has renewed energy and high hopes during the first days of January, but what happens as the weeks go by and you still haven’t implemented any new ideas?

All those good intentions can start to fade in February, March, April and so on… until you’re stuck doing things the way you’ve always done them with the same outdated software, devices and equipment. So what’s the solution for sticking with your commitment to work smarter? The answer is finding the right partners.

Allies In The Office

First, find partners at your business that share your vision and enthusiasm for making improvements in workplace processes, upgrading hardware, and adopting new strategies for increasing productivity. Even if these partners aren’t the decision-makers when it comes to approving expenditures (although that certainly helps), they are still valuable allies in providing fresh ideas and helping new initiatives gain acceptance in the office.

You Need A Guide

Next, get in touch with professionals outside your company—they’ll serve as your guides in developing and implementing strategies to increase productivity and help you work smarter. You’ll want someone who takes the time to understand how your business functions and how you can actually meet (or exceed) your goals based on proven, real-world solutions that fit your business and budget. You probably have an idea of what you want—these are the folks that help you figure out how to make it happen.

If your goals include cutting down on lost time looking for files and improving the way employees share and edit documents, then you should talk to a document management expert about M-Files. Are you ready to scan and archive all those old paper documents stacked in the storage closet? Talk to a scanning and conversion professional about setting up the right scanner and software or find out more about using PSI:Capture with your MFP. If you’ve decided 2016 is the year you want more control over your fleet of printers, then you’ll want to know more about a flexible, scalable solution called PaperCut. Is your first step towards a more productive year as simple as updating to printers with more the production features you need? The point is, don’t go it alone when figuring out how to turn your ideas into workable solutions—expert partners are indispensable in reaching your business goals.
