Work productivity is largely dependent on the tools and processes in place to accomplish daily tasks and projects. Communication is one of the key factors to increase productivity and ensure things are being done correctly. Good communication helps establish a trusting relationship between staff and management to boost morale and improve worker efficiency. It is also crucial for achieving customer satisfaction and employee health and safety.

Studies show that poor communication practices can result huge losses in profit every year in inefficient processes, idle time spent by employees, and lost labour.

Just how important is communication for your business?

Surprisingly, many businesses do not engage in detailed analytics regarding their communicative processes. It is estimated that ineffective communication practices can cost a company more than $10,000 per employee every year. For companies managing a large number of employees that amount of lost profits can reach astronomical proportions.

Establishing effective and efficient communication channels for your business can be the difference between success and failure. When communication avenues are inadequate it increases confusion and also time spent by management to regulate and repair these deficiencies.

Communication streams should be convenient, open, and fast to get at the heart of the matter to get the tasks accomplished or the problem solved.

Versatility

Bell PTT is practical for a wide range of business applications and sectors including construction, hospitality, and transportation. Since Bell PTT is compatible with so many devices, it can be used in such a wide variety of settings.

For example, it can be very helpful in the high-paced, high-traffic food service industry when every second is crucial to keep customers happy and coming back.

More rugged devices may be more practical in these demanding environments as the average smartphone can be easily damaged by the elements.

As employees working on team projects continue to be spread out amongst a variety of geographical locations, good communication is more important than ever to maintain quality and efficiency. Bell PTT operates on the largest LTE across Canada to ensure remote connection wherever the job takes you.
