Building a Small Business IT Strategy
Information technology (IT) systems play a critical role in all growth strategies, from helping to achieve results to coping with the demands of an expanding organization.
Technology improves productivity by enabling communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing that allows employees to creatively work together.
Advanced Data's consultants can help you select, deploy, manage and exploit the IT needed to be successful in growing your business.
Underlying all your growth efforts, however, needs to be a robust and accessible store of information about the prospects you generate and their interest in your company.
This information needs to be securely stored and yet accessible to those who need it. This may include not only people in your office, but also sales people who are traveling or executives accessing information remotely from home.
Information Technology systems can help to create competitive advantage for your company, by improving customer service through data availability and reducing operational costs through task automation.
Stable systems that are securely available to local and remote workers are the foundation of an effective business.
Making the right technology decisions takes a combination of experience and understanding. The experience that comes from having done it successfully before and the understanding of the your specific business.
Making the wrong IT decisions can mean having system breakdowns that impact business for hours or even days. It can mean ending up with poor communications, lack of visibility to critical business information or being vulnerable to security risks.
A competitor who is using a relevant technology better can out-compete your business.
