Each year, companies are being pressured to do more with less. There is an infinite amount of work to do, but always a finite amount of resources to use. Being able to pick up the slack from unproductive, painful, manual processes can be a game-changer when it comes to your bottom line. Luckily, you’re not on your own and ARCOS can help.
So, What’s The Problem?
In a recent survey, we asked companies in the critical infrastructure space to think about their processes and tell us where they’re losing the most productivity time. We asked them to rank processes on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most time-consuming.
Our responders shared that they ranked creating schedules and following through on reporting as a 9.9 out of 10 difficulty. Whether it’s trying to get specialized employees into rigid shift structures according to your business or union rules, or spending time trying to figure out who the eligible employees are that can fill empty shifts, ARCOS works as your personal shift management assistant.
Another interesting response to our survey had to do with what tasks cause management to struggle at critical infrastructure companies, and honestly – we weren’t surprised by the result. 60% of the folks that took the survey listed managing work, reporting and productive time as their biggest struggle. 40% of those also lose valuable time getting the correct workers, with the correct skills, into the correct shifts, in the correct order. Automating this manual process could change the way managers and supervisors structure their day, leaving more time to focus on priorities and production.
