Longer Work Weeks – The impact of more sales can outweigh overtime costs

Being able to make valuable use of employees is a goal for every manager.  Having employees work their maximum potential (longer hours) increases output in your company, which hopefully increases profits.  However, getting to a point where you have enough financial assets to be able to pay overtime can sometimes be difficult.  If profits in your company are not strong enough, the ability to pay overtime is just not feasible.  This puts a strain on you as a manager because you have no choice but to shorten workweeks in order to accommodate payroll.  The only way to be able to afford these extra costs is to increase sales in your company.

ETS asset management systems will increase profits in your operations.  ETS tracking devices are designed to save your company time and money as well.  These wireless asset-tracking systems will increase your crews’ productivity with minimal cost to you as a manager due to the fact that they require minimal training.

Forgotten equipment is a major cause for of decreased productivity in many companies.  Getting all the way to a job site before realizing you forgot something, and then needing to turn around is a waste of valuable time- time that you are paying your employees for! Invisi-Tag is an innovative system that provides your crews with an electronic checklist.  The electronic checklist is available as an app on a smartphone or tablet (technology many people already know how to use). With Invisi-Tag’s mobile app, the crew will be able to see all items on the truck before they leave, meaning they will no longer lose time on a job from being unable to locate and track critical tools and equipment.  Being able to spend the proper amount of time on a job ensures quality work, pleasing customers and increasing your sales.

Companies have a variety of systems in place when it comes to organizing equipment data (repair and maintenance information or warranty information).  Usually these involve stacks of files that are easy to misplace, and that can easily become disorganized.  Employees end up having to waste time searching for these documents at the last minute, wasting time- namely, payroll.  Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all important equipment information that is critical to operations.  It is completely paperless, and allows you to have important information at your fingertips whenever it is needed. Since Sigilo stores all maintenance and repair information, you will know ahead of time when a piece of equipment is due for repair.  This will decrease equipment downtime, which will increase output in your operations.  Not only will Sigilo increase sales, but Sigilo will also increase productivity due to the fact that employees will not have to spend hours searching for important papers when you need them.

Productivity can be lost when there is not a good system in place to track equipment.  If important equipment goes missing then there is usually no choice but to have employees stop what they are doing to search for them.  This is a huge waste of time and productivity. Senal Geo Tracking is a mobile GPS tracking system available on smartphone devices.  It can be used to track any important tool or piece of equipment. Senal’s sensors are constantly working in the background, so you always know where your valuable equipment and machines are.  This way, employees will never have to waste time searching for missing equipment again.

With ETS systems in place, gross profit will begin to increase in your company.  If it costs less for your company to do a job, you can decrease the prices you charge customers.  Having a competitive pricing structure is important for every company because it is appealing to potential customers; therefore this will increase sales.  The impact of more sales can outweigh having to pay overtime, allowing you the ability to have longer work weeks in your company.
