How to free up your time with a user management system
I recently read an article in Forbes magazine about how we spend our time. The article described the multiple benefits of hiring help to free up time. It described how hiring out chores like lawn care and house cleaning can free up personal time and improve your overall quality of life. At a personal level, this seems like a no-brainer. If I didn’t spend a couple of hours every weekend mowing the lawn, raking, shoveling, weeding …. I would have more time to devote to more important tasks, whether that is work or spending time with my family, that time is the most valuable commodity in my life.
The same principle applies in every aspect of our business as well. Why do we hire skilled employees? For their time! What is the most important resource that we can protect and conserve in our business? Time!
In our personal lives, having more time reduces our stress levels and enables us to do other things that are more important. The same is true in business. Reducing the amount of time spent on repeated, administrative or technical tasks, increases the amount of time we can spend focusing on our core business and on our customers.
In business, we look to automation to conserve our most valuable asset. By automating repetitive tasks, we can save time. Automation also improves accuracy, thereby saving more time. In our businesses we have onboarding automation for payroll and employee acquisition. We have email to automate communications. We have automated processes for billing, customer management, and countless other business function. In order to use all of the time saving tools, we have to make sure our employees have accounts and access in our tools.
We have to create user account, which costs time. We have to grant access to file shares, email groups, and whatever employees need to do their jobs – which costs time. When an employee is unable to work because they don’t have the right access, it costs time!
