As you get ready for the start of 2016, here are a couple of tips to increase the operational efficiencies of your finance and accounting department.
Two Monitors Are Better Than One – Make the extra investment in your staff by giving them two monitors at their desk. It will allow them to keep more applications and Excel spreadsheets visible as they do work. The time that they will save in opening and closing docs throughout the day will allow them to accomplish more work throughout the day.
Education – Make sure to put dates on the calendar in 2016 for continuing education on your accounting software application. Regardless of area of responsibility, your staff can gain insight into time saving functionality and configuration options by scheduling education sessions with your accounting software support firm.
Give Me More RAM Baby! - Adding more RAM memory to your staffs workstation or laptop will allow them to process faster. The analogy is that RAM memory is like giving a worker a larger desk. A larger desk allows more books to be opened for viewing just like more RAM memory allows your staff to open and view more applications at once (especially when they have a second monitor!).
Happy New Year and here’s to a more efficient 2016!
