The research is in – there are 5 major frustrations when it comes to working in an office and, boy, do they get on your goat. We know because you told us.

It’s often the small things around the office that bother people the most and hinder productivity. Things like filing, losing documents, old equipment and outdated processes that slow down the whole flow of the office.

They are like the constant niggle in your lower back causing you pain you just don’t need – and Panadol can’t fix.

Here are the top 5 most frustrating things in your office that aren’t your co-workers.

  1. Misplacing or losing important documents

You’re just about to walk into an important meeting and go to collect your printouts and you can’t find them. You’re in a flap now, you’re going to be late and you’re starting to get stressed. Thankfully there are document management solutions such as Papercut these days to ensure this doesn’t happen.

  1. Filing and running out of space

There is nothing worse than when you run out of space on your hard drive and can’t save or back up your work. It always happens at the most inconvenient time (when you are on deadline) and it one of the most frustrating challenges in an office. The right technology will help your business perform at its peak, ensuring your documents are always backed up automatically, relieving one less stress from your office life.

  1. Computer says no

In the words of Little Britain, the “computer says no”. Your computer or other office equipment for that matter is old and slow, and each day you seem to be on the phone to the IT department. This falls in line with the photocopier always jamming, the printer constantly needing “new toner” and the internet being slower than snail mail. Sound familiar? Good quality and reliable office equipment with a warranty or managed service will help keep your staff sane and productive.

  1. Staff wasting time with outdated systems and processes

You need your staff to be as productive and efficient as possible, but how is that achievable with outdated systems and processes? Upgrade your hardware, software, applications, servers, network, and cabling to give your business the best chance to thrive against your competitors. Watch what happens when you don’t have that “noise” to contend with.

  1. Not receiving the customer service you deserve and pay for

A great customer experience and customer service is critical in this day and age to stand out from your competition. It is not acceptable to receive anything less than amazing. You don’t want to deal with people who are rude or unhelpful. You want support and useful information from polite people who are easy to work with, right? You want solutions to help drive your business forward. That’s where we can help.
