Mobile apps are important business tools for helping owners and management streamline workflow, improve work order management proficiency and cut administrative costs.
With many moving parts and an abundance of complex processes, businesses are a natural fit for mobile apps. Although smartphones and tablets are ever-present in the workforce, plenty of businesses have yet to incorporate apps into their daily duties.
Fortunately, this is changing! From cutting costs to reducing work order management cycle times, apps are designed to help businesses improve workflow. Small business owners might assume boutique stores or facility management positions would be taken out of the race, but apps can help increase efficiency in any business; big or small.
Inventory control. Mobile apps make it easy to check inventory levels, manage orders, process payments, and view that all-important information when you need it most. With an app that lets you view inventory in real-time, you’re able to get a better understanding of your inventory levels.
Reduce paper waste. Going paperless not only cuts the high costs associated with purchasing paper supplies, printing, storing and shipping, but can also reduce the risks of errors that often happen with manual entries. Additionally, staff production time spent searching for paperwork or payment history and receipts can be significantly reduced with a simple digital search of it.
Work order management. With faster response times, shorter maintenance, and reduced downtime, your tasks get completed on time. This also allows you to manage and measure asset performance. From everyday processes to communicating to employee onboarding, apps are able to reduce your work order management cycle times.
