WorkingSm@rt using IBM Notes Testimonials

Client: Western Power

I expected to learn how to make better use of IBM Notes. I came away with a whole new framework for managing the information that crosses my desk each day. Not only have I freed up an hour a day of work time, I have significantly reduced my "mind traffic" with a single consolidated to-do list and a mechanism to get back information when I need it. Priority Management have some great tools that will put you back in control of your day.

Going into the Working Smarter using IBM Notes I was a little sceptical about using this new aid to achieve a zero inbox at the end of each day. In addition to this it had to save me around 75 minutes a day, I thought I had heard it all before. With 15 years experience within Executive Assistant and Management Roles I thought that time had taught me to manage myself and others well.

After the session I had to invest approximately 5 hours to put this system into place if I was going to give it a go. To my amazement this paid off within the first week thanks to my dedication and attitude to believe in the process. I was averaging the 75 minutes along with being able to assist my staff in managing their own time. Thank you Priority Management.
