It’s that time of year! The holidays are here and for many of us, the most wonderful time of the year is also the most hectic at work. Your team is asking for time off, customers are frantic or closing for the season, and it seems like everyone needs everything yesterday!
How can you manage everything on your plate and still have time to celebrate. Here are some tips that can help.
- Keep Communications Clear and Constant – Keep your team up to date. Make sure they know schedules and critical deadlines for deliverables, who’s out of the office, and any days off coming up. Keep customers informed of your holiday hours, and give them an emergency contact should the need arise.
- Collaborate More Efficiently – Are you waiting for your team to finish a document before it can be moved to the next person? Save time by updating your technology to make collaboration seamless. Xerox’s ConnectKey technology makes scanning, sharing and storing documents on the cloud easy. Plus, they’re instantly available to any team member at any time.
- Stock Up on Supplies for the Busy Season – Nothing’s worse than running out of critical supplies when you’re on a deadline. Xerox VersaLink printers make it easy to check toner so you never run out. They can also default to 20sided printing saving paper. Use Xerox eConcierge program and order supplies with a single mouse click.
- Get a Head Start on the Holiday Rush! – Need to create multiple documents for a rush delivery? Don’t reinvent the wheel, use Xerox templates for a quick painless turnaround. With a selection of everything from PowerPoint slides to greeting cards to certificates, you’ll be outputting documents and meeting deadlines fast this holiday season.
- Automate Workflows – Automating repetitive processes can save you time. For instance, create one-touch processes with the Xerox Mobile Link app. Scan your document, update the format, rename the file and store it in single locations with one mouse click. Even better, use Xerox Web Capture Service to scan documents directly to programs like Microsoft Office 365.
