Productivity is defined as the rate at which goods or services are produced per unit of labor. There are many different ways of measuring productivity. The most common productivity measure is labor productivity which relates output to employment or labor hours.
One aspect of productivity is its emphasis on teamwork. Much of the available productivity software deals with this aspect: improving teamwork. Both hosted and local productivity software usually provide enhanced communications, tracking, tasking and scheduling. By using this broad definition of productivity, other types of software including accounting software, customer relationship management (CRM) software and enterprise resource processing (ERP) software can also make valid claims to enhance productivity and thereby be considered productivity software. Additionally, other productivity software programs and calculations determine productivity in a wide number of areas and according to numerous formulas.
In searching for a productivity consultant, you should probably consider a productivity expert in the specific software area you require. For example, a productivity expert in warehouse management should have expertise in both productivity and warehouse management. Even a labor productivity expert will be much more effective if his/her knowledge is coupled with focused application-area expertise.
