Time is the most precious resource that we have in our lives and it is limited. In this rapidly changing world, we want to achieve more and more. Our task lists are growing. We have more and more on our plates. More and more often people suffer from anxiety, burnout, and depression. We have bigger and bigger problems focussing, trying to avoid distractions and social media and news addictions.
The terms “Big Data” and “automation” are now part of the everyday business lexicon. With the increasing amount of data that companies and their staff handle, having a designated TMS to automate the inflow and outflow of information can make staff’s life much easier while at the same time increasing the company’s ROI.
At ATL, we experience that in our everyday work, totally focused on our customers’ needs, we have our own requirements as to how the processes and workflows should run and what tools make that possible. It means making the right choices as well.
You have likely considered that although you closed many projects and done a tremendous amount of work, the financial results did not reflect the amount of effort you exerted. It is easy to get bogged down with projects that do not bring a satisfactory return relative to the work involved.
As your organization gets larger and the amount of work grows, you will eventually start looking for tools to help your business. A CAT Tool is typically the first purchase a business owner makes, and a Translation Project Management System comes second. Can the two co-exist or does one replace the other? Is there an overlap of functionalities or are they supplemental to each other? These are the questions we will address.
It was such a pleasure to meet you during the ALC conference in Washington last week. It was a very intense time, filled with meetings with our clients, partners, industry consultants and influencers, and with companies who do not work with us, yet ;-)
