One of the facets emerging at the forefront of the digital age is a constant in your face delivery of the “snooze you lose” message. With everything to gain and nothing to lose, pretty soon, it’s going to be that the only businesses being able to sustain their presence within this market will be the ones that bit the bullet, caught the train and dove in, feet first into full reliance on today’s new systems of managing every element of operations and the customers they attract. Time has just become too valuable a commodity to not make the move to what technology has managed to establish as absolute necessities for staying afloat in a time-starved culture – and a time starved world, actually.
Hidden Issues With Staff Increases
With any business increase of true lasting value, there must be an associated rise in the number of consumers served, and if your operations are fairly already extended to the max, the increase of customers must necessitate the hiring of more staff. With adding staff, there’s the matter of providing adequate training and entry, more expansive payroll (and all the particulars that are entailed along with it.) Scheduling becomes more complex, and sufficiently covering every shift managerially speaking comes with new responsibilities. The larger the number of employees can increase the potential for profit loss from both employee error and employee misappropriations (AKA theft.) Somewhere along there, what began as an effort to simply serve a growing customer base seems to have turned into little more than a big, fat problem. At least it would have been, before the POS age, that is.
