  We present the results of hardware, software and operational improvements implemented at the injector complex of the 1.37 GeV electron storage ring of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Source (LNLS) with the aim of improving injector stability and reliability, thus reducing the injection time. The improvements include changes to the 120 MeV injector LINAC RF system and high power modulators, injection automation and the implementation of a new procedure for reusing the current at the end of each user's shifts before injection by ramping the energy back down to 500 MeV (the injection energy) without dumping the beam. All of these changes allowed us to significantly reduce the overall time from the end of a shift to the delivery of beam in the following shift with a positive impact on the reduction of injection thermal transients for the storage ring and beamlines. Further improvements are expected in the near future as a result of planned changes to the injection timing system and of the installation of a recently assembled upgrade of the 500 MeV booster synchrotron RF system
