Is your team losing productivity because they are using too many apps?

Have you ever experienced a day when your email inbox seems to be plotting against your ability to get things done? Don't worry; you're not the only one feeling this way.

A recent study uncovered something interesting: 80% of our communications still happen through email. This means that despite all the fancy apps, chat services, and digital tools available, we're kind of stuck in the past, spending a lot of time sorting through emails. It's like using a carrier pigeon in a world filled with telephones.

The study also discovered that employees spend too much time juggling various apps. Imagine this scenario: An employee wants to send a critical report but gets lost switching between Slack, Teams, Google Docs, and a bunch of other tools. It's like playing a never-ending game of digital hide-and-seek; trust me, it's not enjoyable.

You might think video conferencing is the solution, but not quite. While it may seem productive, the truth is that most employees find only three out of every five meetings helpful. The rest? Well, they're just a waste of time.

And let's not forget the frustration of repeating or clarifying things constantly. 74% of workers say they must repeat themselves at least some of the time, and almost a quarter say it happens often. It's enough to make anyone feel like screaming into the void, right?

So, what's the answer to all this digital chaos?

It's time to take a step back and rethink your digital strategy.

Instead of adding more apps and tools, why not consider working with a technology strategist? Think of them as the Marie Kondo of the digital world, helping you declutter your digital workspace and bring back your team's happiness (and productivity).
