Employees can complete their tasks at a faster rate if they work smarter. To work smart, they need to have smart tools that help them perform with greater efficiency.
If employees work with disparate applications from different vendors, it poses numerous challenges:
1) There is a learning curve involved, as employees have to learn how to use multiple applications with different user interfaces. This increases training costs and the time involved.
2) These disparate applications do not communicate with each other, resulting in siloed data. Getting these apps to communicate with each other requires a manual integration at the backend. This increases the workload for IT admins, which results in a high total cost of ownership.
Here is where Zoho One comes in. It's a unified software suite with over 45 applications that enables employees to access the tools they need to complete their tasks efficiently. With Zoho One, you can manage all aspects of your business from a single platform.
Zoho One's unified platform reduces the learning curve and makes for efficient navigation, as all the applications within the ecosystem have a similar user interface. Moreover, your employees can perform all their tasks from a single window without the need to switch between multiple browser tabs constantly.
Let's explore some of the platform's features and see how you can keep track of your employee's productivity while enabling them to work smarter.
The unified dashboard
Zoho One's unified dashboard enables you to monitor key metrics from one single window in real time. It has a collaboration dashboard, a manager's dashboard, a dashboard of important updates, and a dashboard for measuring personal productivity. This helps you keep track of important information at a glance and monitor how your employees perform tasks. The unified dashboard also provides role-based access controls, which enables you to give access privileges to your employees as needed. You can also customize and create your own dashboard.
Unified navigation bar
The unified navigation bar enables users to navigate through various applications seamlessly without switching between multiple browser tabs. Constantly switching from one tab to another could lead to a decrease in productivity and efficiency, as it causes employees to get distracted. Moreover, it becomes increasingly difficult to navigate and find previously opened browser tabs. The unified navigation bar sits conveniently on the left side of your screen, making it easier to find various applications. When you switch between your recently used apps, you will be able to continue working from where you left off.
Zoho One's unified applications facilitate remote collaboration, enabling multiple users from different parts of the world to work on the same document in real time. Notebook and Writer are just two examples of apps that facilitate remote collaboration among employees from different regions.
Zoho One's project management system, Zoho Projects, helps employees keep track of tasks and follow up on them. They can also prioritize their tasks and mark them as either low, medium, or high priority. This helps employees stay organized and ensure that they never miss a task. Managers can also keep track of the tasks and assess how well employees perform.
Pinned apps and customization
Zoho One allows users to pin important apps at the top of their navigation bar, enabling easy access. Users can also use the One Launcher to organize apps into groups, facilitating quick access and easy identification. It also gives employees the freedom to customize their apps according to their preferences.
Zoho's AI assistant, Zia, helps users locate and retrieve required information within the Zoho One ecosystem through its search feature. That way, your employees can quickly access important documents without the need to memorize their location.
