Sense™ in Motion: Communications & Productivity

People are the heart of our businesses. How we communicate with them, how flexible we are to their work habits, and basically, how happy they are doing their work, is directly related to how productive they are.

And to how efficient and profitable our businesses are overall.

Today’s workforce is larger, more complex, and more mobile than ever before and this has exacerbated the need for not only better but for what we think of as contextual communications.

It’s tied the string directly between how well we communicate and how productive our workforce is. This is true whether you are in manufacturing or transportation, human resources or information technology.

This quote from Dona Wilszek in a recent post, speaks to this change well:

“Organizations need to continually think how to make the business process more efficient for users and how technology can help with that. There needs to be a focus on enabling people to work how they want, when they want and with as little friction as possible.”

At Sixgill™, we’ve embrace the idea of utilizing technology to improve business processes, applying it directly to the platforms we use for communications. We’ve developed a productivity solution for businesses that harnesses proximity knowledge to make communications with workers themselves dynamic to the situation at hand.

It is actionable by nature, tied to where people are and who they are interacting with. We believe that proximity technology is the key to tailoring successful communications and impacts how responsive and how productive people will be.

And that the mobile nature of the workforce itself is best suited to a solution where proximity in communication and productivity can tie what information people receive to where and when they receive it.

Look at the infographic below.

Sense in Motion 2 (1)

It illustrates the building blocks of a Sense™ communications and productivity solution that respects the attention of the employees and drives better response. Equally provides tools for managers to gather information about the behaviors of those very same employees.

These building blocks, like the ones we illustrated in last week’s post, are design elements configurable for the specific needs of your business.

The Sense proximity platform is built to let each enterprise configure their own contextual and controllable communications solution for workforce optimization.

It is driven by the knowledge of where people are in relation to the people or machines they are working with. It is controllable from the Sense console by management or triggered automatically from preprogrammed proximity events.

On the behavioral side, contextual communications increases engagement, improves performance and boosts satisfaction of the workforce. We believe that from a Human Resources perspective, it also impacts retaining talent who when happier are more productive and satisfied with the work environment.

At Sixgill, we have a vision of bringing to the enterprise a way to measure engagement and capture insights that let you adjust communication and productivity in the workplace to suit the changing behaviors of the workforce themselves. Proximity knowledge as a monitoring activity begins to do that today.

Seeing is believing and to see Sense in action, schedule an IoT demo with a Sense Expert who will guide you through how to configure the platform to your company’s unique communications needs.

Looking forward to speaking with you!

Note that every week in our Sense in Motion, series, we look at one use case for the enterprise powered by Sixgill Sense. Last week’s post was on Emergency Management.
