With the great promises technology holds, many organizations still have inefficient systems and reduced employee productivity. New research released today from Managed 24/7 revealed that the average worker in the UK loses one day a month due to technology issues. The UK is currently facing major productivity issues due to the impact of poor IT systems and infrastructure. As the report suggests, this IT failure could cost UK PLC £35 billion per year.

32% of private sector workers who use IT at work believe that their workplace IT systems are damaging their ability to do a good job; 37% for firms with more than 500 employees. A lot of them believe they have better IT systems at home and that the current system their organizations employ is costing the organization so much time and money. The wasted time, amounts to £1,499 per employee lost every year, or £35 billion ($44.9 billion). That loss, is the equivalent of the entire populations of Cardiff and Birmingham not working at all for a whole year.
This raises a lot of concern for the future of businesses. It goes without saying that technology is the foundation for the success of business aiming to lead the future. It becomes imperative for businesses to develop tools or utilize solutions that eliminate top 4 issues identified by IT users in 2016:
  • Slow-running systems / equipment
  • Failures in connection
  • Outdated kit or software
  • Equipment not being ready for a new starter
Businesses need to examine the current state of their IT systems and determine appropriate steps to take to ensure they are not damaging their own productivity. Cloud based systems like Factory automate most of the processes businesses run through on a daily basis, eliminating the need to build and maintain indigenous technology.
