How We Improved Productivity In The Office

Productivity in the office is extremely important for your real estate investing business, and every other business. We noticed that for us there was something missing. A lot of tasks got forgotten or were taking longer to do and it was lowering our productivity. It is always essential to be increasing your productivity. 

Every Solution Leads To A New Problem

We knew we had the solution; we needed an assistant. But Assistants can be expensive because you have to pay them a salary, and there isn't always something for them to do so it didn't make much sense to go this route.

The next solution was to hire a virtual assistant. But virtual assistants are not good for office use. They are better for marketing and tasks that can be done behind the scene. This is because they are working remotely so they are not much help for office help unless you have them on video chat all the time. But that just isn't realistic, there called VA's for a reason.

So we needed to find an in-office assistant for cheap, that can always be there. This seemed impossible until we found the AMAZON ECHO SHOW.

What is it?

The Echo Show is an incredible piece of technology. It is the upgraded version of the AMAZON ECHO which is a little device that you can ask questions to, set reminders, and play music, stay updated on news etc. The Echo Show goes one step further and has a screen so it can play videos for you and give you a visual representation of everything it does. 

How it helps us?

All of our reminders in one place

When we need to be reminded of something in the near or distant future, or have an appointment that we do not want to miss we simply ask Alexa to do this for us. You do not have to stop what your doing, you just simply ask Alexa to do it for you and she will set the reminder and remind you the day of, and when it is time for that task/appointment. Example: "Alexa, set a reminder at 1:00 pm on Tuesday to follow up with Brad." She will repeat it back to you and set the reminder. Then all day that reminder will be flashing across the screen to ensure you do not forget.

Music

It is always good to have a little background music in the office to keep you sane. Alexa is filled with an unlimited amount of playlists. You can ask to play anything from Country to Dance Music to rap and everything in between, from any time period or specific artist. She will automatically play for you so you do not have to waste time searching for a song. You can also raise/lower the volume, pause/play, and stop just by asking. No effort necessary.

Motivation

We start every day with a motivational video. And you guessed it, we just ask Alexa to play a motivational video and she will find one for us to get us pumped up for the day and ready to CRUSH IT!.

News

We also like to stay up to date with what is going on in our industry, which is extremely important in real estate. Alexa will pull all of the top stories and recent news of what is going on in real estate, or any other industry that you are interested in. 

The best thing about this technology is it is cheaper than hiring someone, and it is always there! You do not have to worry about an assistant calling out sick or needing vacation time. It is pretty much like having a full-service assistant in your office, at all times!
