We have all heard the catchphrase, “There is always room for improvement.” Sometimes, it is easy to ignore the improvement room because it is–let’s face it—more work. We allow ourselves to be content with the day in and day out business operations. Take heed, the same operations of business year in and year out is not the way to run or grow a business successfully, change must be a factor in order to improve.
It is important, despite the amount of work, to embrace change, advancement in technology, and move with it. The world has turned into a digital empire and does not run as smoothly on the “old way” of handling things. That is okay, adjust, and find a better way, thus improving the business and adding to its success.
What are some old ways of doing things, technology-wise that needs upgraded? One is definitely software. If the company computers are still running off Windows XP Operating system, or even Windows 7, then there is definitely room for improvement. The newest Office software offers great shortcuts and programs that will help improve the office’s standard of efficiency.
Another old way of technology is being set up on what is known as the POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service). Technology has given businesses the opportunity to access any one client from anywhere in the world at low prices. When compared to old long distance rates, VoIP phone solutions is an excellent way to improve on the standard of business. IP phone solutions give businesses a more convenient way to take customers calls, check voicemail, and access to email, these are all on a unified system. For instance, some systems are set up for business owner’s voicemails to convert into an email message.
Document storage is no longer boxed into a paper file system. Cloud based storage systems like Dropbox, Google Drive, and more, give employees the ability to save documents in the “cloud” and access them from any computer, any office location, and at home.
