5 Reasons Enterprises Need Unified Systems for the Apps They Use

Automated billing systems, email marketing tools, CRM, ERP, and more: enterprise apps are everywhere! These apps are already designed to interface with others – and alongside proprietary apps designed in-house. Read on for five reasons to take the next step and implement a unified system where apps are integrated for a seamless user experience.

Apps

Unified Systems Reduce Employee Distraction

Despite offering mobility and more, enterprise apps’ benefits can come with a steep cost in employee focus. Even though they are designed to save time, swapping between apps makes for distraction. Statistics show that the average person needs about 25 minutes to re-focus after interrupted task switching. Distractions disguised as work are the worst culprits since we tend to feel busy and overwhelmed while juggling tasks and swapping apps.

Implementing Unified Systems Streamlines Workflow

A unified system such as Sapho’s employee experience portal unifies the information from all the apps employees use, streamlining workflows by providing instant access to necessary data. There’s no need for workers to stop what they’re doing, think about the next step, and swap apps to get the information they need or input data into another system. This system feels intuitive and is as easy to use as a social media platform – in fact, the UX feels a lot like Facebook since it’s designed to help teams stay connected.

Using a Unified System Boosts Productivity

Multi-tasking can lead to an incredible 40% loss in productivity. Psychology Today reminds readers that unless they’re pairing a familiar physical activity such as walking with a mental activity such as listening to a podcast or thinking about an upcoming meeting, “multi-tasking” is actually task switching. The brain lacks the ability to do multiple tasks simultaneously, even though it processes information so quickly that our perceptive processes trick us into feeling as if we’re seamlessly handling lots of different tasks simultaneously.

Unified Systems Put Priority Tasks First

Most people prioritize tasks, but without proper guidance, we run the risk of surfing precariously from one crisis to the next, feeling overwhelmed and stressed the whole time. Good time management skills can help, but when workflows are presented automatically, the question of prioritization flies breezily out the nearest window. With the right unified system, workers are presented with personalized notifications about ready completion tasks, and once the action has been taken, the next item surfaces.

Unified Systems Save Businesses Money

Actions such as report completion, handling service tickets, and handling customer requests take less time to complete when streamlined. With reduced effort, greater productivity, and fewer mistakes, businesses enjoy enhanced cost-efficiency once enterprise apps have been unified.
