Small but Mighty: Using Smart Business Solutions to Improve Operations
With so many things to consider when running a small business, small business owners need all the help they can get. In today’s fast-paced business environment, smart technologies are game-changing tools that can help small to mid-sized companies concentrate more on what matters for their business. Today let’s explore some of the many benefits of installing a “Smart Business” automation solution in small businesses and how it can improve overall productivity, streamline workflows and increase profitability. And for a small business with tight margins, any place to save money only makes sense. Today we’ll look at the many benefits of installing smart business solutions for small businesses.
Sometimes things go wrong in the office, for example: (a) your employees are locked out of the office when you’re stuck in traffic, (b) you arrive at the office Monday morning only to discover it’s too hot or cold to start the day because the heating was left on or never turned on, or (c) all the office lights were left off over a long weekend, wasting power. By taking on some of the burdens and automating or streamlining aspects of running a business so that managers and owners can concentrate on the things that matter a smart business solution can help the small business owner.
Below are some of the most valuable options available for businesses when building a smart business automation system:
Smart Lights – Never forget to turn the lights off again! Save energy and keep business expenses down with smart lights. Set up rules to turn on the lights automatically when you disarm the system or walk through the door. Smart lights can also help save on energy costs and create a more inviting atmosphere, with the ability to adjust brightness, color, and timing remotely.
Smart Locks – Whether you have a small team or many employees, you can easily manage multiple access plans, remotely lock or unlock doors with smart locks, and monitor activity at your business. Smart locks provide enhanced security and convenience by allowing remote monitoring of who enters and leaves the premises. This feature can be handy for companies that need to grant access to multiple people, such as employees or contractors.
Smart Thermostats – With smart thermostats, the office is always at the right temperature, and you’re never heating or cooling your business when no one’s there. This level of control helps small businesses save on energy costs–even if someone forgets to turn off the AC or heating when closing up for the day.
Surveillance Cameras – Surveillance cameras deter crime, help improve productivity, and ensure employees adhere to company policies. Cameras help you protect a business, its employees, and its assets. They also help maintain a safe and efficient workplace.
Remote monitoring gives businesses real-time access to their systems and real-time alerts to their phones or smart devices announcing visitors, intrusions, security breaches, or even deliveries. And business management software can show a dashboard with all the controls and camera views.
Benefits of Smart Business Solutions
Sure, small to mid-sized businesses have fewer staff and smaller budgets than their larger counterparts, but they dream big and work just as hard, sometimes harder! That’s why a smart business security solution can transform a smaller business.
Let’s look at some benefits of installing a smart business automation system in your small business. By having electronic locks and automatic access control to the office, a small business owner can streamline the office and work smarter, not harder. And with heating and cooling operated on an as-needed basis, your company will see a drop in your energy bills by an average of 8-10%.
When small business owners and their employees spend less time worrying about locked doors, access to the office, and the heating and cooling, they’ll spend more time on the actual business and less time worrying about little things around the office.
Finally, by giving employees and management more time to concentrate on what matters and less time worrying about mundane tasks and chores, staff will be happier and have more time and energy to give to customers, leading to more satisfied clientele.
