Getting Your I.T. to Improve Your Productivity

Mike Tyson, in his heyday, had a guard walking behind him repeating, “You are the Champ”. 

Sometimes I wonder, how it will be if I have someone follow me and smack me on the head if I deviate from what I am supposed to do.

If that happens, I think I’ll achieve all the goals – both the small and the big ones :-).

Two things will stop us from achieving what we want.

1. Hurdles.
2. Distractions

We can find solutions for hurdles and overcome them.

Distractions are lethal. 

When distracted, we go on a tangent – often never return the original path – reminds me of grandpa Simpon from The Simpsons 😊

If we are focused and on the same path, we can achieve more and have greater productivity.

If we can help our computer users not be distracted, they are likely to have better productivity.

By logging into different software applications, they lose their productivity and time – a study estimated that we lose 15% of our daily productivity by moving between various software applications.

To stop them from getting distracted, we could do the following:

1.      Have a single place to log in to do all their work – e.g. Intranet or Microsoft Teams.

2.      Give fewer software applications that give them all the functionality required.

3.      Use “single sign-on” (SSO). SSO allows one set of login credentials to access multiple software applications.

What do you think?

My secret ingredient is that my joy comes from seeing others succeed. This means everything I do is in my client’s best interest because I genuinely care for them and their business like it is my own. It is what has enabled Digital Armour to establish long and healthy relationships with our customers, win awards and become a preferred partner for Telstra and Microsoft. I have 20yrs experience running my own business. I know the pitfalls and how to avoid them. I recognise medium-sized businesses don’t have corporate budgets, and I understand their needs and priorities. This is invaluable to my customers. I believe in serving humanity by positively impacting the people I work with, the customers I serve, and the wider community. It’s an ethos that permeates through Digital Armour and our team of 50 employees.
