The Status Interface Workplace Revolution
In the corporate sector a status application refers to programs which display object-oriented status updates across a broad spectrum of multimedia devices. At first this status page might be a bit difficult to picture, think of a status bar for your video games characters. Imagine an excel spread sheet with an advanced graphical user interface and an easy to understand data input system. In addition to the versatility of mission status applications, is the ability for them to increase overall workplace productivity while reducing costs. The cost reduction comes from a reduced need for administrative and IT employees and an increase in workplace productivity. There are pre-existing solutions for example spread sheet applications, but these are solutions don’t support modern communication formats such as text messaging and social media-based communication and even cloud computing. The cloud aspect also ensures that status management software is viable for international organizations.
All for One
The primary objective of any organization rely heavily on proper communication between employees as well as the efficient management of resources. There exist so many communication methods today from internet, to texting and even the good old telephonic conference. With the advent of modern technology, we have approached an age where along with voice based updated, organizations can provide their members with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) which presents vast amounts of specific data, on an easy to understand and implement format. Currently organizations use programs such as Microsoft excel in order to distribute information, throughout the organization. It take a full team of IT personnel and administrative assistance in order to generate and update data tracking spreadsheets on software such as excel. The program although efficient, is also complex in nature, with the inclusion of formulas and functions throughout the cells. Additionally, Microsoft excel doesn’t provide a graphical user interface that’s easy to understand. The visual aspects of excel rely heavily on cell coordination and employee expertise.
One for All
As we approach the age of artificial intelligence, we will see the rise of all sorts of automated software that can help increase workplace productivity and communication. Disaster management is another aspect of corporate communications and a graphical interface allows for more specific user input and data output. Oftentimes within organizations application failure results in loads of wasted time while employees scramble to try to figure out what’s wrong and what their next steps should be. As you can imagine the larger the organization the greater the impact that status management software with graphical environments can have on organizational performance. When conducting SWOT analysis for instance, companies oftentimes are forced to hold regular conferences riddled with redundant slide shows in an attempt to disseminate the information to as many employees at once. What if your employees could have constant access to those data points and organizational updates at the tip of their fingers? It would surely allow for less death by power point conferences, and more employees at their workstations actually doing work.
