The Modern Business
We have spoken before about how what is generally thought of as future technology is in fact now-tech. With this in mind, how can companies leverage modern technologies to stay ahead of the market? A big question is:
What is a Modern Business?
A modern business leverages modern technology to improve the way in which it operates. Modern cloud technologies allow staff to work outside of the office location and opening hours, improving both productivity and work-life balance. A part of this is considering the changes of attitudes of its employees as to where, when and how to they work, particularly with the increase of Millennials within the workforce and their growing influence on businesses, as well as "baby boomers" wanting to work around family life. Its not just about increasing productivity - a flexible attitude to how and when staff work will attract the best candidates on the market.
A modern business will want to deliver its services fast, effectively, and securely to its customers. Personalised and fast customer service go hand-in-hand with modern technology, from the quote-to-cash cycle to managing stock levels.
The Microsoft vision looks fantastic - a modern integrated business, with Augmented reality, Artificial Intelligence and clever reporting dashboards. For most SMB companies, this looks unattainable - from the complexity of training staff to the cost of buying and implementing it all. In fact, there are so many different technologies involved, how do you even know what you need?
