Produce8 App Update: Slash Unproductive Meetings, Boost MSP Efficiency

By Greg Tavarez

The modern workplace hums with the constant buzz of meetings. (Just take a look at your calendars.) From daily stand-ups to strategic planning sessions, physical and virtual gatherings take up a good chunk of the workday.

But are these meetings truly productive, or are they silent efficiency killers?

Well, that actually leads to another question: How can MSPs and their clients gain control of their time and ensure meetings are impactful, not intrusive?

Enter Produce8. The provider of work analytics recently launched a major update to its flagship application designed to provide MSPs and their clients with unmatched insights into how meetings affect employee productivity and well-being.

The enhanced Produce8 app integrates with popular calendar platforms like Google Calendar and Outlook, along with video conferencing solutions including Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Slack. This allows MSP teams to track time spent in internal and external meetings for a clear comparison between planned schedules and actual workdays. The aim is to help MSPs identify and eliminate unproductive or poorly planned meetings.

The update also introduces an executive-level dashboard that provides a comprehensive view of time and financial resources invested in meetings and calls. This includes the associated cost of employee salaries to offer MSP owners a clear picture of how their resources are allocated and where potential improvements lie.

With the update, Produce8 now allows team members to provide daily ratings and comments. Businesses and managers pinpoint trends or patterns in employee morale and well-being.

"We recognized a fundamental issue in the MSP industry: excessive time spent in meetings is eating into productive work hours. Our new release tackles this issue head-on," said Joel Abramson, CEO of Produce8. "By empowering each employee to understand their workday, we aim to boost efficiency, allowing more work to be accomplished in less time — a win for all."

These innovative features build upon Produce8's existing suite of powerful tools, including personalized daily reports where actionable data is delivered to users to enhance productivity, real-time workflow tracking to differentiate between productive work and potential distractions as well as a goal setting functionality to establish and reinforce positive habits related to virtual meetings.

In addition to its powerful analytics that optimize meetings, Produce8 goes a step further by providing educational materials and coaching from productivity specialists. To learn more and discuss specific needs, schedule a complimentary consultation with their expert team.

Produce8 offers a web-based subscription service and a mobile app downloadable from the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
