When was the last time you sanitized your fountain drink machine? What about serviced your roller grill? Having trouble remembering when to change the filter?
As single-store owners, we often take on the role of facility management. However, it is one of many, many roles we play. The more equipment we add, the more sales we have potential to get. However, the more equipment we add, the more we need to remember when something has been done. What can we do to take these little things off our plate and put them on auto-pilot. Sure, we have a daily task list for employees, but what about those items that don’t need to be done as frequently, but still need regular maintenance.
What if we could create a personal assistant who proactively reminded us that these tasks need to be done.
Consider adding a recurring calendar event, attaching the instructions and adding an email reminder. Whenever the email comes in, you can forward the email with the instructions to your worker. (Bonus… training just got easier!)
They can reply with a picture of the completed task when done. Now… that is mobile management!
