There are many tools out there which can help to streamline the way your company does business and many of them can be added to your business’s IT services. No matter what your industry your business operates in, there are some which we believe every business should have. Let’s take a look at 5 of them.
Change can affect a company in tremendous ways and so you must ensure that you are prepared for a period of change in the best way possible. One such way is to use a program like SysAid’s change management software to plot the best course of action. This allows all employees to know exactly what is expected of them during the change and will help to minimise downtime.
Your company’s inventory can be one of the most important lists you have access to. You therefore need a program which can not just track what is in your inventory but also alert you when a particular asset is running low in stock. The right software could even schedule in regular deliveries if there is something which your company goes through quite a lot.
A project management software allows members of a team to know exactly what is expected of them each and every day. It can improve efficiency and productivity within the team and, since most are Cloud-based, they can be accessed from anywhere at any time. This allows members of the team to continue working on their projects no matter where they happen to be.
There are many different options for project management software. Think about what your team needs and try to find a software which covers all the bases.
A HR portal will save everyone a lot of time and paperwork; whether they are a HR manager or just another employee. With a HR portal, employees can log requests for holidays and all sorts of other things online. Got a doctor’s note from the week you were ill? Just scan it into your computer and upload it to your company’s HR portal. It will save everyone a lot of time and effort; and also avoids embarrassing conversations about mislaid holiday applications.
A Help Desk can greatly improve the level of service your IT technicians are capable of giving out. Quite often, they have to waste valuable time sorting their requests in priority order instead of actually attending to the IT complaints. This is where Help Desks can assist your business. An automated system is capable of guiding people through a series of automated responses to try to sort out the problem by themselves and can then list them by priority if the issue is more severe. It is a must have for any IT tech dealing with a larger, multi-faceted company.
These are just some of the many IT management software available to you and your company. If you haven’t yet implemented some of them in your business, take the steps needed to do so today!
