When our IS project began almost a full year ago my main goal as part of the committee was to figure out how and why we do things currently. Now a year later I wonder, why do we do it like that and how soon can we change? How soon can we optimize our service levels? How soon can we optimize our stock levels to be better prepared for our customer's needs?
One good thing (of many) that has come from this exhausting process is making us think how can we do things better NOW without waiting for software to save the day? I would assume, or at least hope, that every company tries to think that way. In my opinion, we have gone above and beyond to maintain high service levels despite all the manual processes internally. So to dream about how good it will be when software does save the day, makes me one happy employee. When I am one happy employee, my dog wags his tail to the smile on my face when I get home at night!
This sounds corny and like I have no social life. Truth be told, myself and many people in my social circle, spend more waking hours at work than at home. Dynalab Corp. is a nice company to work for, I've been here 15 years. They have built a successful business based on employee loyalty as much as customer satisfaction. I stay because I am treated well, feel as though I have a common goal of business success and overall have made lasting friendships with people whom I interact.
To end this week with another blog entry (two in a row) and in a positive mood excited about the future is nice. Trickle down effect; when we improve our business it leads to satisfied customers and happier employees! Have a nice weekend everyone, time to go see my dog.
