Productivity Tools in Odoo


Everyone wants to top the productivity game. It's the collective need of employees as well as the management. No business can shine without a productive work base. Productivity requires us to make the best of our time to produce maximum results with minimum effort. We all want to maximize output. The first step to maximizing output is definitely to maximize input. But we see in the world of competitive working that not all input is ideally converted to useful output.

A lot of effort gets wasted in organizational work. The way to improve productivity is definitely by increasing the efficiency of the multiple processes that run a business. A business process involves an efficient link between products, employees, and customers. Every business functions to reach their products to the customers. Depending on the business the product could be durable and non-durable goods, services, experiences, and so on.

A productive business would have a good flow of products to customers with growing revenue and profit. This is possible through the employees and management who are able to deliver to the customers while achieving and ensuring the quality of their products.

Productivity increases when the people involved are happy with the results. From employee to customer, all categories need to be satisfied. The key to this is employee satisfaction and motivation. A clean and clutter-free work environment is the first step to relieving the employees of the initial stress. Organized and efficient management of the office matters helps the employee feel more relaxed about their part of the work. 

Employee time management is also key to increasing productivity. As management, we can always ensure that the employee does not have to stress and waste their time on unnecessary administrative tasks. For example, automatic filing of invoices would relieve the concerned employee of the worry and can refocus his attention to the other task that requires more personalized attention. All these small changes in the organizational activities will surely reflect major changes in the productivity of the company.

- Improve efficiency: Prioritizing tasks and managing task time is a good way to improve the efficiency of the organization. We can break down projects into tasks and assign time and priority for each task. This would help the employees to structure their work and remain focused.

- Delegate roles: we can delegate multiple roles in the company and assign people responsible for projects, departments, and teams.

- Choose the right tools: Having the right tools for work is very important to keep our employees happy. Even the exceptional handyman reaches his best only with the best tools. Having to waste time on menial tasks is a huge productivity killer. Many companies have moved to efficient ERP software, but even while choosing them we must be careful to choose the ones best suited for the needs of our services and employees

- Positive reinforcement: keeping the employees motivated and encouraged through personal incentives for a job well done. This would encourage employees to deliver more.

- Offer support and get feedback: be sure to listen to the employees and the clients. Understand the needs of the employees and conduct surveys and feedback sessions with both the employees and clients to access our relation with both groups.

- Maintain good communication: it is important that we maintain a system of good communication among the employees as well as the various units of the organization
