How to increase productivity with Slides - A Tale of two employees!
Once upon a time in a company called Refresh Inc. worked two hardworking employees who were not able to reach the best of their potential. They used a regular legacy office tools system which slowed down work.
One of them was Mira who was a sales executive. As part of her job responsibilities, Mira has to present a report of sales in the previous week to her bosses every following week. She undertakes the time-consuming process of updating her presentation with the new data from Excel to her presentation slides on the day of her presentation. Every Monday she spends her entire day in trying to make the perfect presentation report for that evening. Sometimes her work is even stretched to Tuesday as her system crashes while working and she has not saved the files. Little things add to the delay, like, the format of the table keeps changing when she pastes that data from Excel.
The other employee was Riya, a part of the design team. Almost every week Riya has to pitch ideas for new products. She has to work with her team and the process of sharing ideas and brainstorming takes a lot of time. During designing and research there is a lot of back and forth mailing involved and in the end, she can’t find time to make a proper presentation to explain her ideas. This leads to her making up a lousy presentation and her team’s ideas not receiving the attention they deserve.
But Mira’s realized that she could be spending more time working on sales rather spending such a huge amount of time on a presentation. Meanwhile, Riya faced the dilemma of showcasing her team’s designs effectively and making sure that their products got the due attention they deserved.
Both Riya and Mira decided to take up their problems with the bosses during the following week and explained their dilemmas. The bosses set up a meeting with the IT Manager. They asked him to find solutions for how employees like Mira could make the sales presentation and like Riya could design a perfect product presentation without hampering their productivity and performance. The IT Manager, Ratan, began to look for solutions online and that’s when he came across Super Simple Cloud.
Ratan immediately met Super Simple Cloud experts and discussed his problems. When the problems were analyzed the experts advised the use of G Suite and its apps for increasing the productivity of the employees and providing them that edge over others. Ratan agreed to the analysis and called for quick deployment and training.
Super Simple cloud developed a special training program keeping in mind the needs of Refresh Inc’s employees. This included their particular workflow and automation requirements. Now Mira maintains her weekly data in sheets and every Monday she can directly link her reports from her Sheets to her Slides file using charts. Now she doesn’t spend her time on doing the redundant double work every week as she can just update the charts with a few clicks and all her data is automatically saved! Now she is using her Mondays to bring in more sales and she finally feels like she is making the most of capability as a sales executive.
Riya easily works together with her team by making Docs files in real time which saves her time while collaborating with her team. Since she is working on a product launch, she can use the sample templates related to products from various templates in Google Slides. Riya simply uses this design with her own images in the place of the given product and just fills in her design’s details in the appropriate place provided. She is now able to use the ready-made templates in Slides to make her presentation quickly and in time. The master view in Slides helps her to make the changes more easily throughout the presentation and within just a few minutes. Now her team finds it easy to share ideas and their product designs are getting approved!
Looking at this improvement Refresh Inc. asked Super Simple Cloud to make G Suite and SSC training available for all the employees in the company. Now not just Riya and Mira but all employees are happy and giving their best at work. Riya and Mira were just two examples, if your employees are facing similar issues, go ahead and drop us a line with your problem to find out how we can help you.
