Breaking Down Silos: How Mobile Integrated Identity Solutions Transform Organizational Efficiency

It’s no secret that tight security is the backbone of driving any business forward. It empowers organizations to make impactful improvements in efficiency, streamline processes, and unlock new revenue streams.

As per a connectivity benchmark report, 90% of the organizations agree that siloed operations are a challenge to growth. 

If you also find it challenging to streamline the working operations due to silos, this article is for you. Read on to explore how opting for integrated ID solutions can uplift efficiency on an organization-wide level. 

The Pitfalls of Siloed Operations

Departmental silos can result in a host of issues. The worst part is that these challenges can impede collaboration and impact the organization’s ability to thrive in a competitive market. Below, we have dissected the consequences of siloed operations and their detrimental effects on overall business success.

Lack of Cross-Functional Collaboration

Siloed environments discourage cross-functional collaboration, often limiting the exchange of ideas and expertise between different departments. Lousy collaboration stifles innovation, as diverse perspectives and skills from various departments are not leveraged to their full potential. 

It also hampers the ability of employees to learn from each other and contribute to interdisciplinary solutions, ultimately impacting the organization’s adaptability to evolve.

Slower Decision-Making

Siloed operations often lead to poor decision-making processes. Decisions may get delayed as they navigate through the hierarchical structures of isolated departments. The sluggish decision-making adversely impacts the business’s ability to respond quickly to market changes, customer needs, or threats.

Inefficiencies in Resource Utilization

Another pitfall numerous departments experience, when they operate in silos, is the risk of inefficient resource allocation. Important access resources, such as technology and budget, may not be optimized across the organization. The aftermath of this inefficiency goes beyond delayed operations, as organizations fail to capitalize on cost-saving opportunities.  

Reduced Employee Morale and Engagement

Although not talked about enough, the isolated nature of siloed operations can negatively impact employee morale, leading to reduced engagement. When employees work in silos, they may feel disconnected from the broader organizational goals and may struggle to see the impact of their work.

The lack of connection gives birth to reduced job satisfaction, lower motivation, and increased turnover, which affects the overall efficiency and culture of an organization. 

How Digital Identity Solutions Enhance Organizational Efficiency  

While numerous businesses have long embraced the trend of using “own mobile devices,” it simply does not solve the main problem, and that’s why mobile identity solutions are in demand in every modern workplace. 

Let’s explore the various ways in which these solutions contribute to streamlined operations and improved productivity.

Uninterrupted and Secure User Access  

Mobile identity solutions break down geographical barriers by providing comprehensive access management. Employees can get secure access to essential information, systems, and applications on the go, allowing for increased flexibility in work arrangements.

Faster and More Secure Authentication Methods

Integrated identity solutions redefine authentication processes, helping businesses move beyond traditional methods. By incorporating systems like EPIC Track, organizations can incorporate multi-factor authentication to add an extra layer of protection against unauthorized access by flagging unauthorized users during the check-in process.

Enhanced Event and Operation Management

Tools like mobile ID and Validation QR bring a new level of efficiency to an organization. These integrated solutions speed up the identity verification processes, reducing wait times and minimizing disruptions by enabling staff to verify identities from any location by simply using a smartphone and internet connection. Whether managing large-scale events or day-to-day operations, the flexibility of Mobile Solutions® ensures a smoother and more efficient experience.

Self-enrollment Capabilities Through Mobile Identification

With mobile-integrated ID solutions, organizations can reduce reliance on paper-based identity security management systems to manage access. For example, the EPIC Track Self-Enrollment empowers users to register themselves into membership before participating in checking into events using an online registration form or single sign-on using any smartphone device.

While it streamlines the check-in process, its key features reduce the need for manpower to handle such mundane operations. 

Better Asset Management 

Assigning assets to employees becomes a seamless process with mobile ID solutions like Asset Manager. Besides securing the assignment procedure, the system provides comprehensive inventory management capabilities to help organizations optimally track and utilize their assets throughout their lifecycle. Its reporting features provide audit trails, support program usage and manage necessary asset maintenance.
