Once you have apps connected to your account, Pattyrn uses machine learning to give you custom insights from our five Key Areas: Tasks, Time, Meetings, Communications, and Documents. Within these key areas, we also report things like monthly alerts where you will learn how you compare to the average user. Likewise, we give you a Summary list of essential items you need to pay close attention to as they will negatively affect your performance if missed.

Let's break down what all this means.

What is a "Key Area" and why?

At Pattyrn, we want to understand how people work in order to help make improvements in performance where no one has thought to look. By using this thinking framework, we have devoted the past 5 years and counting to researching this topic which brought us to a realization that there is 5 key in people's work day that contributes to their performance success. These key areas are of course the key areas we focus our data around in Pattyrn!

Key Area breakdown

How do the apps you connect contribute to each key area and why? We can't go too deep into this as it's our secret sauce, but here is what we can share.

  1. Time: This key area is relative to apps that have a time-based component to them like Harvest, Google Cal, or Zoom.
  2. Tasks: This key area focuses on apps that are task driven like Jira, Wrike, or Trello.
  3. Communications: Apps that contribute to this are comms based like Slack or any chat related tool.
  4. Documents: Sometimes we bog ourselves down spending too much time at documentation using apps like Google Docs, or uploading content in Jira.
  5. Meetings: Are your meetings constantly running over time which in turn negatively affects everyone's workday involved? Apps like Zoom, Google Hangouts, or any other online meeting tool contributes here.

As mentioned above, there is so much more to this than the examples we provided. Just rest assured that each key area was created from research and is very intricate in the metrics it returns. Additionally, we are always measuring and adjusting performance measurements to ensure that our outcomes are the most reliable in the industry.

What do I do with the metrics provided?

Once you or your teams start to receive performance metrics from the key areas, you should start asking questions in order to learn how to improve and keep growing to  deliver top results.
