Doing More with Less
The mood is gloomy … The predictions are dire …
Newsrooms as well as water cooler discussions are filled with talk about slowing growth, budget cuts, layoffs, …
Trimming the fat …
Tightening the belt …
Faced with an economic recession just around the corner, businesses are bracing for a long hard winter.
What do you do?
How do you respond?
This is the time to do more with less.
Efficiency is now the name of the game.
Are you facing this challenge too?
Are things slowing down in your organization too?
Are you having to do more with less?
If that is the case, here are 3 strategies that will help you drive growth in your organization during these challenging times:
- Narrow down your focus to the high-potential and high-revenue customers and markets. Prioritize what works. Create a plan to target your best customers and the best markets for new sales opportunities. Leverage a tool that includes real time data to track progress of leads and accounts, and does it across marketing, sales, and service departments.
- Use automation to increase efficiency. A tool that automates tedious manual tasks and takes care of day-to-day communications and notifications is important during normal times of course, but is absolutely critical during these times when you may find yourself short-staffed but with the same long list of deliverables.
- Simplify your technology by reducing the number of apps and tools. In most organizations, sales and service reps spend less time selling and attending to customers and more time doing tedious tasks like data entry on multiple apps and outdated tools. This would be a good time to take inventory of all the tools that are used by your organization or department and remove any that don’t add significant value or take the business process forward.
