Technology is an important enabler of competitiveness and when managed strategically within a business can enhance productivity, growth and returns. COVID-19 has confronted businesses with many challenges in terms of how they operate and how they stay competitive, forcing change and driving them to utilise technology to improve their flexibility and efficiency.
During this pandemic every business has had to find new ways to meet the needs of their clients whilst maintaining a quality service. Adopting new technology and maximising the use of existing software has helped many businesses adapt quickly to new challenges and meet the evolving needs of clients. Services such as Microsoft 365 have enabled companies of all sizes to move staff to home working, as files, emails, and collaborative tools, such as Teams, can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. A silver lining for many companies has been an increase in productivity and a reduced need for costly office space.
Making the processes to access your services simpler and more intuitive will encourage client loyalty and referrals, giving your business an important competitive edge to enable it to grow.
Utilising technology can help you run your business more cost effectively, and through the use of automation can increase efficiency and accuracy. The right technology for your business will help increase productivity, enable your business to scale more easily and enable it to adapt quickly to changes within the marketplace. When investing in new technology it is important to have a good understanding of your current processes and business needs, so that you choose technology that enhances the way you operate. Training staff to use newly acquired technology is also vital to ensure that your business fully benefits from the investment. The wrong IT investments can be time consuming and costly, it is always worth seeking expert advice and researching the latest technology trends in your sector.
Business intelligence is a technology-driven process for analysing data and providing businesses with information that enables them to make informed decisions. If you can manage your resources using real-time key performance indicators (KPIs), it will enable you to focus your efforts on the areas of the business that will have the greatest benefit.
By investing the time and effort into understanding how technology can provide a competitive advantage, you can be rewarded with a significant edge over your direct competitors. Most businesses can benefit from having someone assess how they can use technology better to improve business results.
