What is Operational Efficiency?

Operational efficiency is a measure of an organization’s profit efficiency vs its operating costs. The greater an organization’s operational efficiency, the more profitable they are. Efficient organizations produce greater returns for the same or lower cost of their competitors. This allows them to become a cost leader in their market by offering their product or service at a competitive price.

The Problem:

Operational Efficiency Challenges

Informational Blindspots

You can’t fix what you can’t measure. As your business grows, its inefficiencies will grow alongside it. To improve operational efficiency your business needs actionable user activity insights that indicate wasted time and resources, benchmark employee performance, and identify productivity-draining bottlenecks.

  • Workload Management: Do we have departments with consistently high utilization rates? Are they overworked? Is there an opportunity to grow the company in this area?
  • Software Adoption: Are employees making use of the new software we recently implemented? If not, do they need more training?
  • Employee Engagement: How engaged are our employees? Do they spend the majority of their time on-task?

Resource Management

To be truly efficient, your business’ operations must be cost-effective. You must reduce waste while maintaining your standards of quality and service. Maintaining a balance between productivity, efficiency and work satisfaction requires careful planning and observation.

  • Identify Bottlenecks: Excessive unproductive web browsing may be a sign that employees are underutilized or have downtime due to undiagnosed bottlenecks. 
  • Balance Workloads: Overworked employees have unstable attendance, rising health insurance costs, and decreased job satisfaction.
  • Manage Change: Insights into operational workflows identifies opportunities for growth and provides a baseline for driving change management

The Solution:

Improve Operational Efficiency
with CurrentWare

Establish a baseline of performance

Monitor current activity levels of employees to benchmark performance. Use this benchmark to identify opportunities for growth and track key performance indicators in your business. 

Ensure that your employees are meeting expectations

Monitor & manage employee performance with records of productive and idle hours. Collect tangible evidence of unproductive behavior or performance improvements.

Understand Your Remote Employees

Increase the visibility of employees who work from home, on the road, or off-site. Compare productivity differences between in-office and remote shifts, learn when remote employees are the most productive, and identify remote work processes that can be optimized.

Fight Bandwidth Hogs

Improve network performance to keep operations running smoothly. Leverage bandwidth usage data to determine whether consumption is a result of genuine business needs or a misuse of company resources.

Balance Employee Workloads

Make data-informed productivity management decisions. Study trends in engagement levels to identify employees and departments that are underloaded or overloaded. Ensure that work time expectations are being met and that employees are following best practices.

Save Money on Unused Software

Software wastage costs businesses a staggering $34 billion per year. Monitor employee application usage with CurrentWare to track the adoption of new applications and reduce operating expenses on underused software licenses.

Case Study:

How Shady Maple Improved Operational Efficiency With CurrentWare

Shady Maple found CurrentWare during a significant period of growth in their company. As their number of employees grew, Shady Maple knew that they needed an employee productivity solution that was scalable.

Their old ways of managing employee internet abuse – manually checking each employee’s computer individually and hoping that they didn’t clear out their web history – would no longer be sustainable.

Since implementing CurrentWare, Shady Maple’s operational efficiency has skyrocketed. Thanks to the central console Shady Maple could review the internet browsing data of their entire workforce from a single device. CurrentWare’s ease of use and automated reporting made the solution accessible for use by managers, HR, and IT personnel alike.

The robust CurrentWare client agent maintained the integrity of browsing data even when employees deleted their browser’s web history, providing Shady Maple with accurate and actionable information about employee browsing habits.

Commonly abused websites and applications were effortlessly blocked from being accessed. Employees that needed access to blocked content for legitimate work purposes could be readily exempted from CurrentWare’s content filtering policies. 

Thanks to CurrentWare Shady Maple’s network performance has dramatically improved and their workforce has regained focus on their core tasks. The HR department suddenly gained the ability to present tangible evidence of disinclination to employees who had been underperforming.

“Being able to identify negative browsing trends and put a stop to them within a couple of hours has meant that our employees are focused on the job almost all of the time. We have become an extremely efficient workforce.”

IT Admin, Shady Maple
