So, you’re running a successful business – good for you. But are you happy? Is this success costing you a significant amount of “you” time? What about vacations and family? Are you able to spend time with them?
These questions about work-life balance have now become more critical than before. Your success is directly proportional to how much you can work and how efficiently you can do it. Thankfully, the ERP is here to make your life easier. This collection of automated tools lets you watch over your organization, streamline the operations, and run things smoothly without putting a lot of effort into them.
From helping you collect the data of your customers to maintaining the back-office functions of your business, a sound ERP system provides you with every tool you need to achieve maximum efficiency through minimum effort. Here are the stats to back up these claims.
1. Without an ERP, locating a document would take 18 minutes on average. A robust ERP system will reduce that time to almost nothing. You are good to go by entering your requirement in the search query.
2. Without an ERP, you’d waste 69 days of a year focusing on administrative tasks. With an ERP, however, you can reduce it by a large margin.
With these factors in mind, here are the ways that having an ERP can help you maintain work-life balance:
No Need to Waste Your Time on Data Entry Anymore
An ERP is an automated system that collects whenever you interact with your customers, create an invoice, or perform business operations. Its tools can automatically generate reports without you having to do it yourself. An ERP removes the need for other administrative tasks; you see, it can save you up to 69 days of free time.
You can use that time to focus on the more critical tasks in your life, like family or travelling. Enjoying this time will keep you focused and without distractions while you work – which will increase your productivity by a high degree.
Leverage Automation to Take More Vacations
As we already mentioned, an ERP automates most of the administrative processes. With that software in place, you’d no longer need to monitor your employees. Integrating tools such as HRMS will help you delegate the supervision to your HR head. Furthermore, the software is relatively easy to use – allowing you to charge more tasks while you take a step back and enjoy your day.
You’d Be Able to Get Better Sleep
Take solace in knowing that you’re not alone in having many sleepless nights, worried about how your business is doing. Psychologists say that this happens because of the constant need of owners to try and micromanage every aspect of business – especially during the Startup’s early days. You will not need to resort to that if you don’t have an ERP. The automated tools it has contain everything from attendance tools to tools for productivity analysis. You don’t even have to be at the office to supervise your employees. Thus, with an ERP, you can rest easy.
It is a crucial aspect to take care of – mostly because running a business requires always having to remain objective. You can only achieve it if you have a well-rested mind.
Making Friends Becomes Easier
Having an ERP takes care of your workload and helps you socialize with people in the office. We now live in an empathetic professional ecosystem where you must be ready to know the person working for you. With an ERP in place, you’d be able to grab some free time and talk to your underlings. When you spend time with them, trying to understand what makes them tick, you’d know what makes them productive. You’d value them, and in return, they will reciprocate by giving you more value.
Focusing On Family and Friends
Let’s now add more words to the point we hinted at the start of the article. More productivity has often been equated with having less time for yoursel f. ERP reverses that idea. When you implement an ERP in your organization, you’ll be able to achieve productivity with minimum effort. In addition, as the time you’d spend on administrative tasks will be trimmed down, you’d have access to more free time to focus on your friends and family.
Not only will it help you focus on the people you work so hard for, but it will also help you reduce stress. With your stress reduced, you’d be able to add a new layer of productivity to your work.
ERP Allows You to Create a Remote Business
Having an ERP won’t only be beneficial for you but also for those that work for you. We now live in an age where remote work is possible and has proven to be more productive. The modern cloud-based ERP will allow you to go beyond the confines of your brick-and-mortar infrastructure. In addition, as your employees are around their loved ones working for your organization, their productivity will increase. Statistics say people are over 10% more productive when working from home.
An ERP system was designed not just to increase the efficiency of your business but also to make your life easier. By removing the burden of the administrative tasks and maintaining the data within your organization, the ERP gives you and your employees time to spend with friends and families.
