Calculate the ROI of visual management to convince your management

It has now been several months since your visual management screens were deployed within your department. Thanks to the assessments carried out regularly, you have been able to develop them and meet the expectations of your teams. However, you still need to prove to your management the ROI (return on investment) of your project. In this article, we give you the keys to convincing.

Effective communication

As a major benefit, you can highlight the improvement of communication and the flow of information. Indeed, digital visual management screens make it possible to give everyone the same level of information, to share the objectives and the vision of the company (do not hesitate to consult our article on the OKR method on this subject).

These media are ideal for sharing business and professional information, as well as more informal information on the life of the teams and the company. It is a complementary tool for your internal communication strategy to disseminate the values ​​of the company and the employer brand. Indeed, intranets are not always consulted, you cannot flood your colleagues with emails either, and it is impossible to transmit the same information to everyone by telephone.

Performance improvement

Another point to highlight, and to which your management will surely be more sensitive: improving performance. Employees who have a global vision of the activity and their objectives are more efficient: they know where they have to go, and how. Thanks to the configuration of color codes or alerts, problematic situations are taken into account and resolved more quickly. Enough to arouse the curiosity of your top management and to move towards operational excellence.

In addition, by connecting Pingview to your Information System, all the information is updated automatically, without the need for re-entries and therefore without wasting time. Everyone therefore has up-to-date and relevant data to be more efficient.

Self-responsibilization and commitment of employees

Employee engagement is also an essential benefit. Many see these wallboards as a way to express themselves and get involved in a project: meetings no longer have the same format, they are more participatory and open to more interactivity, collaboration and sharing.

There is also more mutual support between the teams. By displaying the objectives and progress of projects, employees can spontaneously offer their help to people who need it, without the intervention of the manager. Wallboards allow self-responsibility in relation to the objectives set, at the level of the individual, but also of the team.

ROI in numbers

To support all the arguments set out above, we advise you to put forward a few figures. If your service has gained in productivity and speed, estimate it in figures: value of gain, increase in performance, better resolution rate, etc. For example, the Atlantic shipyards have estimated their productivity gain at more than 10%: operators have gained in responsiveness and visibility on their cabin production line. After deploying visual management screens within its logistics flow management IT teams, one of our customers in the retail sector estimated productivity gains of 5 to 10%, with a better service rate. This can also result in reduced incident handling times. This is the case of the Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France (discover the video testimony), which went from 20 days to 10 days.

Do not hesitate to highlight data that will speak easily to your superiors: reduction of response times, improvement of intervention time… Also highlight the testimonials of your employees concerning their experience of wallboards. So many arguments that will convince your colleagues and your management.

There is no shortage of reasons to equip yourself with a visual management tool and this list is obviously not exhaustive. However, we know that these are the most important issues for companies and that these KPIs will hit the mark. And if you ever need additional arguments, do not hesitate to contact us!
