Technology is an essential part of your business today and even the smallest changes may lead to unexpected benefits such as saving time and money, as well as making you more competitive. When starting or running a business, controlling the outgoing costs is a priority and saving a few minutes every day can make a significant difference in the long run and in the profitability of the business.
Whether you’re interested in improving efficiency in your day-to-day business activities, nurturing employee relationships, or cutting costs, utilising different technologies can have a significant impact. So, how can technology save your business money? Read on to discover our top tips.
Assess Your Broadband
Internal communication, document access, transactions, marketing, customer service and more, all your business operations rely on a seamless internet connection. Make sure you’re paying for the right package that fits the specific needs of your business and that your ISP is able to accommodate your business as it evolves and expands over time.
An office worker will visit, on average, approx. 100 online pages each day. If you were to upgrade to a faster connection, you could save time that can be used for other more pressing activities. The more staff, the more time you can save, and benefit from cost savings in the long run.
Technology Makes it Easy for Employees to Work from Home
Technology makes remote working possible. The Internet is widely available, we have access to mobile devices and cloud technology, and it’s easier than ever for employees to access what they need to, even offsite, and communicate efficiently with video-conferencing.
Allowing your employees to work from home, every day or on an occasional basis can save money on office space. Maintaining an office space can be expensive, especially if you only have a few employees. By eliminating travel, or waiting time, your teams can be more productive. In addition, remote working demonstrated a positive impact on employee focus. A survey of 2000 UK professionals revealed that 55% of respondents felt that they concentrate better at home compared to in the office.
Harness Cloud-based Services
Using Cloud-based services your employees are able to work more easily from different locations, as they can collaborate with their peers, and access the Cloud to receive the information they need. With the wide variety of Cloud-based services now available, your business can save time and money by not having to pay for services you don’t need.
No up-front investment in hardware, lower infrastructure and IT costs, scalability, reduced energy consumption and reduced security costs, are some of the key advantages of using cloud-based technology.
