Internet Tools at Dirt Bikes
There are many ways Internet tools can benefit a company like Dirt Bikes, some of those benefits are things like the enhancement of team productivity, saving money, faster communication, keeping employees up-to-date, and enabling one-stop access to important documents. First, one must understand the tools and technologies, e-mail, instant messaging, bulletin boards, scheduling, document management, and virtual conferencing.
The first benefit is E-mail; e-mails offer ways to converse electronically with other employees without time consuming meetings. Documents also can ...view middle of the document...
The next benefit is instant messaging, instant messaging can increase productivity for small teams. Instead of having to wait for an e-mail to download, employees can use programs like AOL instant messenger, Yahoo messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, and Trillian chat in real time with other employees around the world. It can be extremely effective if the employees need to be in constant but don’t want to wait on e-mails. Instant messaging is a way to keep everyone in the loop more quickly than an e-mail would, you could do many things with e-mails but instant messaging is useful in the office between employees, managers, and CEOs. To protect yourself from spam, do not publicize your user profile. Many programs offer warning and block features to curtail unwanted messages from spammers.
There is also the benefit of bulletin boards. Like e-mails and instant messaging, they foster communication. Message boards can be even less intrusive than either of the other two options, allowing employees to read and respond at their will. They can also keep the entire company up-to-date about new developments and important information. An example of something pertaining to bulletin boards would be the days since the last accident. This tells people how long it has been since there was an accident in the company or store or work area.
Scheduling is also another good benefit for a business to have pertaining to Internet tools. There are online shared calendars and to-do lists, you can schedule meetings and tasks without having to rearrange schedules via e-mail or phone. You could also keep track of when someone is going to be interviewed, when a shipment is supposed to be in, how high the sales are and what the goal is for that week. Also people can keep track of who opens and who closes, what hours they are working that weeks, etc.
Virtual management is another benefit to have. You can have real-time interaction with the employees that work for the company and in the company around the world with conference software. Hold online conferences can help minimize costly and time-consuming meetings, phone calls, and flights to the other countries where the company is located. This would also be good to talk to those in charge of sales and manufacturing, and it may even be possible to have the real-time interaction with customers as well.
With the benefit of document management you can keep all documents organized online, and host hundreds of documents you may otherwise have to print and distribute. This would save money, trees, and time. No one wants to spend time printing and distributing documents that would be updated in just few weeks, which would in turn cost hundreds of dollars.
Also there are two tools of the Internet that would...
