GAP ANALYSIS: WHERE ARE YOU FEELING THE PAIN?
First things first, you need to identify gaps in your current processes, whether they’re technology-powered or not. Next, figure out precisely what void you need to fill and if technology can supplement it. Then when identifying the gap, ask yourself what has made that void so painful. These essential elements help you narrow down your pain points and give valuable insight into optimizing efficiency.
- Have your staff been complaining about manual tasks that don’t allow them to focus on their primary job?
- Has manual data entry made you prone to errors that require hours of costly clean-up?
- Has data security been a concern?
The more specific you can pinpoint your pain points, the better your solution.
