More Productive Options

Workers feel they could be more productive if the technology in the office were more like the technologies they use at home and on the go.

  • 75 percent of those surveyed agree that work processes and systems should work more like those they experience as consumers.
  • They agreed that they want the simplicity and self-service control and transparency that they experience with popular online services they use in their personal lives.
  • 9 in 10 surveyed said that automating these inefficient processes would make them more productive.

According to a recently released report from ServiceNow, corporate managers spend nearly two days a week on unnecessary day-to-day admin tasks that are outside their core responsibilities. The amount of time managers spend focused on tasks not essential to their primary business role pulls them away from more strategic initiatives and creates a drain on productivity — a drain that may even require additional staffing resources to compensate for the losses.

To better understand the effectiveness of the tools and processes used in their corporate environment, ServiceNow surveyed nearly 1,000 managers in the United States and the United Kingdom. Participants were asked about how these tools and processes impact their individual and team effectiveness. The survey focused on four specific processes or services common in any corporate environment: setting up a new employee, opening a purchase order, requesting tech support and ordering marketing collateral. The results were consistent across all demographics.
