“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Is App Overload Slowing Down Your Team's Productivity?

Have you ever experienced a day when your email inbox seems determined to sabotage your productivity? You're not alone in this struggle. Surprisingly, despite the multitude of apps, chat platforms, and digital tools at our disposal, recent research has revealed that a whopping 80% of our communications still take place through email. It's like using carrier pigeons in the age of smartphones!

This study also unearthed another concerning trend: employees are losing valuable hours navigating through a labyrinth of apps. Picture this scenario: an employee is poised to send a crucial report but becomes entangled in the web of Slack, Teams, Google Docs, and a dozen other tools. It's akin to an endless digital game of hide-and-seek, and let's face it, it's anything but enjoyable.

But what about video conferencing? Surely it's a more efficient way to collaborate, right? Well, not exactly. Although it may give the illusion of productivity, the truth is that most employees find only three out of five meetings genuinely valuable. The rest? Well, they're largely unproductive.

Let's also address the persistent issue of having to repeat or clarify ourselves, which can be utterly frustrating. An astounding 74% of workers report having to repeat themselves to some extent, with nearly a quarter encountering this issue frequently. It's enough to make you want to scream in frustration!

So, what's the remedy for this app overload and digital chaos?

It's time to take a step back and reconsider your digital strategy. Instead of adding more apps and tools to the mix, why not collaborate with a technology strategist? Think of them as the Marie Kondo of the digital world, assisting you in decluttering your digital workspace and rekindling joy and productivity within your team.

If you're ready to break free from the endless cycle of emails and app notifications and reinvigorate your team's productivity, let us lend a helping hand. Get in touch.

Until next time, keep Fit and Have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

App overload and email dependency are hindering productivity, and yada yada yada, your business may need a digital strategy overhaul with the help of technology strategists to streamline communication and boost efficiency.
