Improving Happiness Through Your Work Processes
5 min Read
In the fast-paced world of finance, it’s easy to get caught up in the never-ending cycle of work. We are always looking for ways to improve our company’s bottom line, and sometimes our work-life balance is negatively impacted because of this. It’s important, though, to remember that happiness is essential to achieving long-term success. In an article by Harvard Business Review, a study shows from a decade of research that happiness positively impacts sales, productivity, and accuracy. By working smarter, not harder, you can find the right methods and tools to streamline your company’s processes, thereby increasing productivity, profitability, and improving your work-life balance.
Time is our most valuable non-renewable resource. But so much time is wasted trudging along through our existing processes when new and more efficient tools are becoming accessible by the day. For example, when Todd Crandall, CFO of Midwest Energy and Communications, joined the company in 2016, they had no sophisticated software to handle the multidimensional analysis that was required. This demanded much of Todd’s time. But as a previous Synario user, he knew there was a better and quicker way to model, and so Synario was implemented at MEC. With our software’s forward-looking multidimensional analysis, Todd was able to model and provide consistent, accurate data as well as cut his work week nearly in half!
In addition to improving employee happiness, streamlining your company’s operations can also lead to cost savings and increased profitability. By optimizing your budgeting and forecasting processes, you can make better decisions and allocate resources more effectively. This can provide resources for employee development, further improving employee happiness and job satisfaction. When Austin Water saw their forecast-building time drop from months to weeks after implementing Synario, their forecast modeling team quickly expanded from two to eight people.
At Synario, we understand the importance of streamlining processes to improve our professional and personal lives, and we offer a software solution that can help you achieve this. Our software is designed to help companies analyze and optimize their financial modeling processes, making them more efficient and effective. With our software, you can identify areas where you can reduce waste and increase efficiency, making this a must-have tool for companies with complex sets of financial data to model. For example, our software can help you streamline your budgeting and forecasting processes, reducing the time and effort required for these tasks. Mike Poster, VP for Finance at St. Ambrose University, is one of the many who realized the time saving benefit of Synario. With features like dynamic presentations, Mike was able to streamline St. Ambrose’s decision-making process as they modeled the impacts of new initiatives.
For example, our software can help you streamline your budgeting and forecasting processes, reducing the time and effort required for these tasks. By automating these processes, you can free up time for your employees to focus on more strategic tasks, which can lead to increased job satisfaction.
In conclusion, don’t be afraid to take a step back and explore new alternatives to the processes in your work. It’s easy to become comfortable with existing procedures, even if they’re lengthy and inefficient, just because they’re already in place. This stagnant mindset spells disaster for organizations in an environment that calls for adaptability. But think not only of the impact on your business but on your own happiness as well. The time and effort you put into streamlining your tasks today could have lasting, long-term impacts on your work/life balance.

When it comes to managing the financial future of your business, you do not want to leave things up to chance or outdated methods of data management and projection. You need solutions your business can rely on, and financial planning and projection features that can guide you towards greater success in the long-term, rather than leave you struggling to plan more than a year or two in advance.
We started Synario because we were tired of struggling with spreadsheets and their shortcomings. We needed a solution that was dynamic, adaptable, and promoted cross-team collaboration. To answer this need, we created Synario: the agile modeling platform that organizations from all corners rely on to forecast and visualize their financial futures.
