The holidays are once again upon us and for many, it’s not only the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also the busiest time of the year at work. Your team is asking for personal days, customers are frantic for year end materials, or closing for the season, and it seems like every client needs everything yesterday!
So how can you manage a hectic workload this season and still have time to celebrate? Here are some tips that can help.
- Keep Communication Lines Open, Clear, and Concise – Keep your team on the same page. Make sure they’re aware of important deadlines, like critical deliverables, and schedules – like who’s out of the office, or any days off coming up. Keep your customers in the loop. Let them know your holiday hours and if appropriate, an emergency contact.
- Collaborate Effectively – Are you waiting for your team to finish a document before passing it on? Save time by updating technology to facilitate better collaboration. Xerox ConnectKey makes scanning, sharing, collaborating and storing documents on the cloud fast and easy. Plus, they’re available to any team member at any time from anywhere with an Internet connection.
- Don’t Run Out of Supplies! – Nothing is worse than running out of toner in the middle of a rush job. Xerox VersaLink Printers make it easy to check toner so you’ll never run out again. They also offer default 2-sided printing to save paper and other time and money saving features. Xerox’s free eConcierge program lets you order supplies with a single click.
- Get a Head Start on the Holiday Rush – Need to create multiple documents for a rush delivery? Use Xerox templates. With a wide selection of everything from PowerPoint slides to greeting cards and certificates, you’ll be meeting deadlines faster than ever this holiday season.
- Automate Workflows – Automating repetitive manual tasks can save your team a ton of time. Create one-touch processes with the Xerox Mobile Link app. Scan, update, rename, and store documents in multiple locations with a single mouse click. Use Xerox Web Capture and scan documents directly to popular programs like Microsoft Office 365.
