Chill Out: 5 Ways a Bespoke CRM Can Cut Your Team’s Stress Levels

We’re not sure about you, but long weekends seem to be a double-edged sword. On one hand, there are only four days until the weekend - but on the other side of the weekend, when the festivities are over, there are only four days in which to cram five days’ worth of work. Cue the inevitable panic from your team, come Tuesday morning.

Luckily, as anxiety and stress continue to run rampant in the business world, technology has risen to meet the challenge – with bespoke CRMs our favourite stress-busting solution. So, whether your team are showing signs of being stressed during a short week or a normal week, take a few minutes to read this article, and see how a bespoke system could help.

 

1. Better Connectivity

A situation which makes many people’s stomachs turn is when something urgent is required…and the person they need the most is away on business. This stressor shows itself in the way a team communicates with one another, with better connectivity leading to less stress. With a bespoke CRM sitting at the heart of your team’s communications, they can ensure that there’s nothing to worry about in those times of desperation, and they never feel out of the loop.

 

2. Constant Accessibility

No doubt that at least one member of your team wanted to keep up to date with what’s going on over the Easter weekend – or maybe it was you, checking in on the business’ progress? Thankfully, we no longer live in an age when businesses totally grind to a halt over four day weekends, with users able to remotely access their bespoke CRM at any time of day or night. Finally, no more stress when it comes to catching up with work on a bank holiday!

 

3. Automated Systems

Of course, the ‘always-on’ culture in itself can be stress-inducing for employees, and the bank holiday is a well-deserved time to relax. Taking that into account, a bespoke system allows for tasks to be automated, keeping the business running over the break. The result? Less catching up to do on a Tuesday, no worrying about small tasks during bank holiday festivities, and a whole lot less stress for your team.

 

4. Easier Workflows

Nobody wants to come into the office with a to do list longer than their holiday, with a complicated workflow process sitting between them and the closer-than-normal weekend. In fact, complex processes are a stressor which continues to haunt employees even in normal weeks, leading to higher stress levels and ingrained frustrations within the business. Simplifying workflows with a bespoke CRM can easily cut out the anxiety and swap it for productivity, bank holiday or not.

 

5. Nothing to Worry About

In Lunar’s case, our bespoke CRM solutions are hosted on our own, secure and always-running servers. The result is that the updates and maintenance for every client CRM can be handled by us, relieving a great deal of stress.
