As industries are rapidly transforming to a mobile-only ecosystem, remote work opportunities have taken the center stage. There’s often instances where a remote employee needs to quickly connect to a particular team member, only to realize they can’t locate or access these phone number or email address details. What ensues is a frantic and confusing process of finding information from others to finally get in touch with the person in question. The lack of structured contacts information also impacts the new hire onboarding experience.
Many maintain their own spreadsheet of contacts. However, this list is often very cluttered with old numbers and needless duplicate contacts sprawling everywhere. This makes it a challenge to find the information we need on time.
How Do Your Employees Currently Store Work Contacts?
The decentralized way of accessing and storing work contacts makes it difficult for employees to access it whenever required and feel confident the details are up to date. Some common bad practices of employees personally saving work contacts to their own devices are:
- Storing employee and customer details on individual laptops and smartphones
- Saving contact details in shared documents on network drives or cloud folders
- Storing contact information in Outlook kind of email systems, which aren’t easily accessible to mobile users.
Another downside of the above approaches is not only the inconvenience of use but also the potential data breach. Businesses can avoid these challenges by using a centralized contact management solution.
