Pacific Office Automation Tacoma Offers Advice for Avoiding Work Distractions

Pacific Office Automation Tacoma believes the best way to avoid frequent office distractions is to implement efficient workflow processes. This will lead to more productive employees, thereby resulting in a more profitable company.

TACOMA, Wash., Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Any office is prone to the usual daily distractions. It may be a co-worker who wants to take a quick break from work to engage in a bit of small talk, the sound of an email notification or even the demands of a high priority assignment that has a fast-approaching deadline. While many office employees may be tempted to ignore social grace and tell a co-worker to leave them alone, Pacific Office Automation Tacoma believes that they have a better solution.

"The easiest solution is to simply optimize the way the office runs," said Doug Pitassi of Pacific Office Automation, Tacoma. "There are always workflow processes that can easily be improved upon. In doing so, employees have more time to focus on their most pressing assignments and are not bothered so much by a talkative co-worker. They will instead have the option of being polite," Pitassi explained.

The optimization of workflow processes offers a unique opportunity to reduce workplace stress as well. When employees feel as though there is not enough time in the day to complete their assignments, they begin to feel pressure, which has a significant negative impact on productivity.

"It is very simple, really," said Pitassi. "A happy employee is a productive employee. Happy employees have plenty of time to complete their work in the quality fashion that their superiors expect. When workflow processes are optimized, employees feel as though their jobs have become easier."

The process for optimizing workflow is relatively easy, although they do depend upon the specific needs of the company that is implementing them.

"We offer a number of products and services, and each of the services is customizable so that is appropriate to the business that it is being applied to," said Doug Pitassi. "It may be IT services, document management services, the installation of multifunction printers or something else. Regardless of the needs of a company, we believe that we can help them become much more efficient."

Pacific Office Automation Tacoma believes that efficient offices are much more profitable as well.

"It should be fairly obvious that the streamlining of office processes will result in more time for tasks that generate revenue," said Pitassi. "If employees spend more time on these tasks, the company simply makes more money."
