The Importance of Technology in Business
The aim of any business leader is to ensure that the product/service offerings are the best, always consistent and that the clients/partners who interact with the brand (whether in person or in a digital way) receive the most authentic experience, true to what they believe they should be getting.
Technology is always improving and serves as a great way to compliment the particular offerings of a brand (unless technological elements are the offerings!). Here are some ways in which technology is able to benefit your business:
Technology eliminates the need for double or triple entry systems and reduces the need to file large amounts of paperwork. Now, contracts and customer information can be stored in virtual data warehouses and accessed in minutes, which cuts down on the need to purchase or rent storage space.
Improved Sharing of Information
Technology allows information, whether written or broadcast, to be shared more quickly and with fewer resources. Marketing can be accomplished by placing ads that reach millions of ready buyers on the Internet or through social networking sites. E-learning and other forms of online training have reshaped the readiness of the average small business workforce as employees can listen to classroom lectures and share ideas with classmates from the comfort of their home or office. This eliminates the need for small business to hire training staff.
Speed and Time
A hundred years ago, electronic mail did not exist, and the only way to communicate with someone else in another geographical location was by postal service–the farther away your client or supplier, the longer the communication took. Today, with the advent of information technology, information is shared at an astounding rate. This saves time, offering the ability to make decisions faster.’ (Bradley James Bryant, smallbusiness.chron.com)
