Whitepaper on OPPTIMO: The world demands professional operational management tools for productivity & efficiency enhancement
Non–work related activities that result in an estimated 30% productivity loss, by average cost a business in USA with 50 employees more than USD 18,000 month and USD 216,000 per year. Global performance-management consulting company - Gallup estimates that disengaged employees cost the US $450 billion to $550 billion in lost productivity per year only in US. The problem isn't just confined to US; it's a universal phenomenon.
What has happened is with the advancements of ICT over the years, activities (private and official) done in an office have changed significantly. Many people are always working on the computer. "C" Level Executives cannot track closely what subordinates are up to. How should they address it when they cannot afford to simply walk around and keep an eye on everything and everyone?
Since looking over an employee's shoulder is no more practical and valid, employers, big & small alike, need better systems to manage teams and tasks and make improvements in the work process.
Consider the following observations.
- 41% of employees admit to personal surfing at work more than three hours per week
- The average employee spends a minimum of 75 minutes a day using office computers for non-business related activity
- Non-work related activities result in an estimated 30% productivity loss
The common denominator of all these is the lack of visibility in the workplace across the hierarchy, between departments as people carry out their job responsibilities.
The solution to remedy these problems is to create more visibility across the whole workplace. This is where OPPTIMO, a web-based integrated functional management platform with mobile compatibility for enhancing productivity & efficiency through creating greater visibility of employees, tasks, activities and projects comes into the equation.

As it is based on the open source PHP technology, it’s cost-effective and easily deployable. After the deployment, eBEYONDS will provide uninterrupted after-sales services.
