There has been much debate lately regarding Yahoo CEO Marisa Mayer’s ban on telecommuting, giving the impression she feels telecommuting is non-productive for the company.  News outlets reported Miss Mayer checked the VPN log for Yahoo’s telecommuters and found the activity to be low, which may have influenced her decision.  Recently, Best Buy joined Yahoo in banning telecommuting.  The decision to ban telecommuting may be viewed by many as counter progressive from a technology stand point.  We think these companies need to better manage their telecommuting resources instead of eliminating them.


Regardless of their reasons, the ban on telecommuting will definitely put Yahoo and Best Buy at a disadvantage when it comes to retaining and recruiting future talent.  Telecommuting is an accepted necessity and becoming a worldwide trend.  The benefit of working from home is an important factor when it comes to selecting and accepting a new job offer based on recent studies.  Furthermore, many studies show telecommuters are actually more productive when working from home than in the office.  Telecommuting provides employers and employees more flexibility, so companies can broaden their recruitment pool by reaching out to more remote talent.


Telecommuting works as long as the company establishes reasonable and quantifiable goals to manage the expectations of both employer and employee.  Fortunately, there are many productivity management solutions available to help address these issues.  NETcellent uses cloud based employee productivity measurement software called MySammy to quantifiably evaluate how effectively telecommuters utilize their computers during working hours.  MySammy is sophisticated and ahead of its time compared with using a VPN log to determine if employees are productive at home.  The solution has given us the flexibility to reach out to more remote IT talent, which we were not able to do in the past.  MySammy has also proven to be a valuable tool in determining the effectiveness and value of our telecommuters.  If you are interested in learning more about MySammy, visit the website at http://www.mysammy.com.

Over the years, a few of our customers wanted to switch to “high end” ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software.  Budget overrun was a common theme we heard because it took a long time to implement.  Some of them expressed a desire to switch back to Elliott, but thought it was too late in the game.  Some of them indeed switched back to Elliott Business Software even though they wasted money on the failed “high end” ERP system.  One mistake commonly made was under estimating the tasks required to switch ERP software.  Unfortunately, ERP vendors are reluctant to provide the full extent of resources needed to switch for fear of scaring off the customer.  ERP software is complicated by nature and different ERP systems handle tasks differently.  Many last minute surprises only arise when you have already switched over.


According to the latest survey by Panorama Consulting, the successful deployment of ERP software often takes longer and costs more than projected.  Ten percent of respondents said they considered their ERP software a failure, 61% said it exceeded their implementation schedule and more than half said costs went beyond the budget.  Read more of this survey at:
