Business optimization should always be priority number one. You’ve created a successful business, which means the hard part is now over. Let optimizing that successful business be a breeze—elect to work with a team that’ll turn your work of art into a modern masterpiece. Here are 7 optimization ideas to consider – a few which are ‘musts’ in 2019:
- Utilize Streaming
Streaming has become the new primary way through which individuals get a majority of their media, which means buying physical media (videos, mp3s, etc.) is strongly discouraged. Don’t buy a stack of CDs or an expensive satellite radio package: create a company playlist on any of the major streaming platforms and watch employee interaction and satisfaction levels lift.
- Self-Driving Vehicles
Humanity is still a ways away from seeing self-driving pizza trucks, but autonomous delivery bots are a different story. These little machines look like something right off the set of Star Wars, but they could play an essential role in your business (if you can find one).
- Move Away from the Cloud
Data centers are a thing of the past—it’s all about the cloud now. But it will not be the case for long: companies are becoming less reliant on cloud services and technologies, and many are citing privacy concerns as the cause for the shift.
- Create the Ideal Workspace
Companies like Amazon, Google, and Samsung are leaders when it comes to the exploration of ideal employee workspaces. All of these companies have made employee comfort and productivity high priorities, and they are continuously trying to create workplaces that appeal to all fives senses. Environment has so much to do with how your brain operates—simple decisions over lunch, as well as those that are major, are affected by what’s going on around you.
- Keep down the Noise
The adage silence is golden is not appreciated enough in most workplaces, an unfortunate reality that most who spend eight hours in a cubical know all too well. Human voices evoke some of the most potent emotional responses in our auditory experience, which means they can very easily be distracting.
- Start Using VOIP
If your business already utilizes the hardware associated with a traditional phone service, all you need is a VOIP converter and telephone adapter. The converter is convenient because it attaches to your computer in a way similar to that of a USB. Once you have all these items and are ready to make a call, all you need is an internet connection and a private VOIP phone number and you’ll be ready to go. VOIP will save you time and money.
- Hire Experts
Time, money, and peace of mind are precious facets in life—and even more so when you’re running a business. For that reason, hiring experts to go over essential business decisions doesn’t only mitigate potential risk for waste and abuse; it has also shown to be one of the most profitable decisions an entrepreneur can make.
