Technology is supposed to make business easier, not make it more difficult. Let's discuss why people struggle with technology and how it can be made easier for them.
You have to be able to communicate with your customer.
Potential customers have to know who you are. I did a live video about getting out of obscurity. Watch it if you haven't yet. You also need to be easy to reach! Current customers must be able to reach you on their terms. (Text, Email, Live Chat, Forms, Phone etc...) and from anywhere in the world. The same goes for your suppliers. Suppliers/Vendors need to be able to talk to you as well and be able to reach you if they need to. This ensures your business services and/or products flow smoothly. Better communication improve your business image and make you more of a professional.
Time is money people! Technology can help you go faster and be more accurate Aerospace companies use Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM's) to get more accurate and faster at measuring custom made parts. Doing this by hand was a nightmare when I would measure custom made space parts by hand. Investing in technology not only made sure we were accurate, but it also cut down on staff time in measuring parts. This meant that more parts could be checked at a faster rate, increasing the companies efficiency on part accuracy and on-time delivery. Both of which are vital measures in manufacturing. The more technology saves you time, the more you can focus on your craft.
Employee communication and Business culture
When employees can communicate freely, the business culture improves Business culture is extremely important to your business. Especially with Work From Home becoming more and more popular. Communication technology creates better collaboration with team members which helps the company, which helps the customer or client.
With technology, comes technological risks. Hackers are on the rise, especially for websites. You need to make sure you have taken proper security measures to ensure you protect yourself, your business and your customers' information. People should be confident when doing business with you and have a peace of mind that they are taken care of.
Bonus: Peace of Mind
