Many of the tips for healthy sleep are unrelated to work, e.g. establishing a regular routine; avoiding alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes...and of course seeking professional advice if it’s becoming a serious problem for you.
When it comes to other tips, like turning off your computer earlier and relaxing before bed, we might well be able to help.
Orchid’s catch phrase is “work smarter, not harder”. Our range of Sage 300 add-ons can improve your efficiency and effectiveness, potentially allowing you to:
- Sleep longer: Increased productivity can help turn work time into play time, or family time…or sleep time!
- Sleep better: By making Sage 300 work more pro-actively, e.g. through tailored alerts and custom workflows, you can ‘rest assured’ that things are running smoothly…putting you in a better frame of mind when your head hits the pillow.
Let’s have a closer look at how our products could make this happen.
