Employee roles are too often tightly tied to experience and knowledge. It's not a healthy situation especially as market expectations require you to respond faster and be more flexible regardless of your situation. The answer? Simplify work by merging technology with the intelligence and knowledge of your best employees.

Here are three things you need:

1. Key employee knowledge

A handful of your most critical employees play a role in every complex decision and have been with your company for a long time. They know the best way to use every machine, the custom pricing models for your strategic customers, even how to best staff your production floor. Start documenting your best practices and decision making rules so they live into the future, long after your key employees exit.

2. The right technology

EFI's Productivity Software solutions are aimed directly at letting you merge your company's intelligence and knowledge into your workflow to make things simple and consistently profitable.

For example, the EFI iQuote intelligent dynamic estimating component. It simply asks you for key information about the product you need to

produce and then builds a production plan in seconds. It ensures the most profitable job route and visually shows it so everyone is on the same page. It lets you instantly compare costs for different order quantities, dynamically adjusts the workflow to produce each quantity most efficiently, and lets you see the impact on margins if you try adjusting selling prices. It also allows you to capture your business process logic for approval of pricing, production sign-off, or indeed any processes you want to preserve around estimating and production planning.

To simplify work along your entire end-to-end workflow, EFI offers scalable, industry leading ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) based solutions that let you add components like iQuote as your business evolves.

3. Commitment and buy-in

Think of these as the glue that makes positive change possible. Commitment and buy-in need to start with company leaders and involve those mission critical employees mentioned above. They also need to be communicated to hands-on employees and, at the right time, even to your customers and suppliers.

So how do you develop commitment, excitement and focus for a project? The right partner helps… it's not just about technology. Business operations analyses, change management consulting, solution implementation, working systems optimization… EFI's services team only services the print and packaging industry and thousands of global implementations have us prepared to fuel your success.
