At one time or another, you may have seen a demonstration of fitting rocks and sand into a jar. Interestingly, if you fill the jar first with sand, then with pebbles and then try to add the larger rocks, you will find they do not all fit. If you start by placing the larger rocks in the jar then add the smaller pebbles and sand to fill the gaps, you will succeed in putting everything back in the jar.
Our work habits are quite similar. If we spend all our time focused the smaller tasks, we won’t find time to address the larger projects, issues, or needs. And in reality, it’s the larger projects that will make the most impact for the long-term.
Take, for instance, a bank or credit union team that is overworked and stressed from trying to manage the distribution of office supplies, money handling supplies, printed materials and promotional items to their many locations. The work must be done and is never-ending…even increasing due to the institution’s growth and acquisitions of more branches.
If the team never slows down to review and recognize options of how to better their efficiency, the cycle will never stop. That’s where ASB comes in. Our teams work alongside your teams to find solutions.
In particular, our expense management programs handle the supplies distribution via our online platform, freeing up team members to focus on other tasks requiring their skill set. That in itself is a (soft) cost savings. And how much more appealing is it to know that our programs also show hard cost savings by determining which items make more sense to be warehoused and which are better to produce on-demand. That is a remarkable discovery which also eliminates waste of outdated, unusable print items as well as branded merchandise.
One platform does it all – it even generates reports and accounts for expenditures per your particular cost centers. And it provides immediate recovery solutions in the event of disasters that may impact your supplies and documents.
With just one meeting, our ASB team will bring efficiencies to light you may not have let yourself consider, but would make all the difference to your entire institution’s operations.
Of course, we all have smaller tasks that cannot be neglected. Just remember to prioritize your tasks and projects and make time to pursue those things that will actually enhance your efficiency going forward.
