Businesses run on spreadsheets. Wait, businesses run on the numbers that are IN the spreadsheets. That's still not totally right. Businesses run because of PEOPLE who build the spreadsheets. Having the right people inside the business will always determine the success or failure of the company. This means that everything matters in the day to day workflow. Bad processes lead to poor results and burnout. Great processes lead to favorable outcomes and avenues for growth. ServiceNow is a big step in the right direction when it comes to business controls but how does VividCharts fit in? The answer is simple, we make ServiceNow reporting less error prone, less biased, always available, easier to read along with pleasing visuals. The bigger question though is why does that matter? Here are 3 game changing factors that created us and will change your business too.
1. You Waste Hours A Week With Manual Tasks That Could Be Automated.
Everyone is familiar with the concept of automation. If you stopped to think about a classic automated process maybe you think about the automotive industry and how vehicles are made. Here's a 2018 BMW x2 being made step by step. In contrast here is footage of a 1920's Dodge Brothers Car Assembly line. The difference is astounding, but its based on decades of change and an understanding that faster and more consistent results are key. Without this progress we wouldn't know the world as it is today with it's magnificent amount of products and services at our fingertips. You may not work in the automotive industry but your business MATTERS when it comes to progress and global function. Here are 2 ways automating processes helps you succeed regardless of the industry you champion.
2. You Aren't Giving Decision Makers The Tools To Make Good Decisions.
Decisions made today shape tomorrow. If you make the wrong decision today, going back to fix it can be impossible or difficult at best. Whether it's 7 million dollars to spend on computer software upgrades or a single update needed for a division of the company, the decision matters because it then drives the next decision. Here's 2 reasons that you're probably not giving yourself the best chance at successful decision making with your current reporting.
It isn't really clear where your eyes need to go. Most likely you will roam the page and then end up looking at the colored circles only then to wonder what they mean. This leads to immediate frustration and lack of any structured path to a decision. Instead what if you were presented with the same report but like this:
The process of getting into the report and finding what you need is much less cumbersome and much more likely to lead to the user finding the information that you are showcasing as most important. We have seen users of VividCharts save hundreds of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars just from this single idea. It's not enough to hope that a report will yield the tools to make a sound decision; you have to be able to prove that it will.
3. Employees Thrive When They Have The Right Tools, Get The Right Feedback And Are In The Right Positions.
When it comes to what we believe in as a company, traits like flexibility, speed, opportunity, and responsiveness are paramount. VividCharts has grown into a team of 17 people who are bold enough to take on the idea that someone needs to champion the cause of reporting automation and its effect on employee culture. Since burnout is so prevalent, the opportunity for positive change is huge. Just like the citizens we strive to be in our community, we also strive to help our clients achieve positive change within their own spheres of influence. It may not seem like enhancing the reporting functionality and speed within the ServiceNow platform could be so far reaching but here's 2 concepts showing it probably does or would.
Your employees aren't loyal. Woah wait a minute. That's right a study by Insurance Business America found that 76% of employees are actively looking for new jobs or opportunities. That's so important that I'm going to snip the text and post it here:
76% of employed individuals are either actively looking for new jobs or are open to learning about new opportunities.
So on average you only have 29% of your current employees who aren't looking for new jobs. Having the right employee in the right position doing the right thing increases the chances that they will stay. So suddenly processes from top to bottom inside each organization play a critical role in shaping the culture, satisfaction, retention, output and health of the business. The exciting part of this is that every person WANTS to be at their dream job. Every employee WANTS to have the job that ends their desire to scout. Becoming that business requires strategic planning. Make no mistake, asking an employee to make decisions or build reports on complex data that is not automated WILL lead to frustration and then to burnout. It can all be avoided with just a call to us!
We believe that who you partner with has a significant influence on daily outcomes. Those daily outcomes shape what will become the reality of your future. Having better reporting is just that, better reporting, but we've proven that how decision makers get data, how they process it, satisfaction in the outcome, mental health, physical health and the process of building the reporting all are paramount when it comes to the overall function of every business. This is why we believe that we can help EVERY business that is utilizing the ServiceNow platform to build a stronger company, a stronger community and a healthier world for us all to live in. If you see the value in our vision, we would love to tell you more about it anytime you're ready.
