Organizations have been looking for new ways to boost productivity. New approaches and technology have helped deliver products and services more efficiently and effectively than in the past few years. Productivity growth is critical for companies because delivering more products and services to customers results in high income. When productivity rises, an organization's capital can be converted into sales, allowing it to compensate stakeholders while still preserving cash flow for potential development and expansion.

Companies are keener to reduce their operational expenses to gain hefty profits, and improved productivity helps them achieve their profitability goals. Organizations are currently looking towards investing in technology-oriented solutions such as productivity management software (PMS) that would offer them centralized productivity management solutions to improve the working environment and reduce costs.

Operational efficiency is mainly a metric that assesses a company's profitability as a function of its operating costs. The more profitable a company or investment is, the more efficient its operations are. The comparison of productivity and operational efficiencies can also provide a look at the economies of scale.
