The end of 2011 is close at hand, and gets closer every minute. PSS Enterprises wants to provide you with some last minute things to do for 2011 and help you prepare for 2012. Here is a quick list that should be done before celebrating the New Year!
Review insurance policies.
Often insurance policies are set up and then put to the side, forgotten, until something bad happens. Take some time to carefully review all your policies with your agent, so important questions that arise can be answered in plain English on the spot. Insurance isn’t the most exciting subject in the world, but making sure there is adequate coverage now could save a lot of money later. This is especially important if changes have taken place in your company during the past year that affects your liability. Be proactive, have a declarations page ready in a PDF and save it to the server, should any clients ask.
Review marketing campaigns.
The end of the year is a great time to take a look at which marketing efforts are driving business and which aren’t. Don’t hesitate to make changes if current efforts aren’t paying off. Keep in mind that a lot of ads will automatically renew, so there is an ad in your portfolio you don’t think is helping the business, you’ll want to make a change before committing to running it for another year.
Review all vendor contracts.
Take a close look at how much business is being done with each vendor. Are you getting the best rates based on how much work is being done together? Is the relationship mutually beneficial? If not, don’t be afraid to make a change. On the other hand, if you’re happy with your vendors, tell them! Let vendors know you want to create a great relationship with them. They’ll appreciate that you’re taking the time to make sure they’re happy in the relationship, too. Let them know you want to be their favorite customer.
Review all systems from top to bottom.
Carefully examine what’s working and what’s not. Decide where the problems are, and figure out what can be fixed. A system review can be an eye-opening experience –and users are surprised to find their work has fallen into habits that are hindering them from being more productive. PSS Enterprises has a comprehensive system review process that documents current technology uses and suggests what changes are necessary to provide a successful 2012.
Overhaul the website.
In the same way that retail stores move around their floor sets, make changes to the website to keep people coming back. Make sure all information is updated, and post any articles that have recently mentioned anything related to the industry. Set all homepages to www.dentonit.com, so help is just a click away when deciding to have the website updated!
Consider technology upgrades.
If you need new computers or a new phone system to help things run more smoothly, the end of the year is a great time to make those upgrades. A new computer, phone system or other technology upgrade can make a huge difference in the daily lives of employees by enabling them to spend less time attending to such problems as computer crashes or attending to voicemails and focus more attention on the things that really matter. PSS Enterprises offers training with all new technology upgrades!
