Why keeping up to date with technology is essential for your business’s success

Virtual communication has become the norm and is rapidly growing

According to the Radicati Group, a technology market research firm, the total number of worldwide email accounts is expected to increase from nearly 3.9 billion accounts in 2013 to over 4.9 billion accounts by the end of 2017. In fact over 100 billion emails sent and received per day in 2013 were business emails and this trend is expected to continue with business emails predicted to account for over 132 billion emails sent and received per day by the end of 2017. Furthermore,

“91% of people sleep within arms reach of their mobile device”

The continual growth in popularity of virtual communication highlights just how essential keeping up with the latest tech is for your business. Customers, prospects, employees, suppliers and all other stakeholders expect communication lines that are fully up to date and accessible. Your email, phone systems, video usage and methods of delivering written content need to be up to scratch to satisfy the modern user. Or else you risk your business drifting towards the competition that have stayed relevant and implemented an effective communication strategy.

Technology holds the key to your business’s productivity

More so, technology has provided business’s with new ways to stay more productive than ever. ‘Cloud computing’ for example allows you to work from anywhere – access your emails, docs, calendars, files, on any device (even other people’s), anywhere there’s an internet connection – all you need is a web browser. You can keep your business functioning with complete flexibility – whether that’s from home, the office, your holiday or during the commute. Staying connected is now easier than ever. Ensure you get back to that important prospect on time, never miss a call from your supplier or fail to open that email from your employee.

Cut your fixed costs, increase your profitability

Cloud computing also offers the opportunity to cut expenses such as travel costs and conference billings, thanks to the revelations of instant messaging, audio and video calls, and document sharing all from your desktop. While the internet has opened up the opportunity to access global markets and low-cost ways of professionalising image, boosting efficiency and serving customers more easily.

The 5 Reasons why your Business should be using Digital Pens

The digital pen resembles your standard ball-point pen. It can be used like a normal pen and even uses ink, but unlike other pens, the digital pen has a very tiny camera stored inside. This camera stores your hand movements and saves your notes – digitally. This means every word, signature, doodle, sketch or scribble, is converted to a digital page.

The 5 Reasons why your Business should be using Digital Pens

1) Save hours on tedious jobs

With the digital pen, your field notes are automatically converted to digital notes. These notes are then securely imported into your company database. Ensuring your customer data and information is safely, digitally stored. The digital format offers easy, clear viewing. So your employees will no longer have to manually scan through dodgy notes or signatures in an attempt to decipher the hand-writing. Your business can save hours finding, filing, and re-keying mountains of paperwork. While the safe importation provides a central database that staff can use to synchronise. Letting you provide a smooth, professional service from start to finish.

2) Cut staff expenses and time on admin

Nearly half of all staff in-accurately record mileage data. Creating big issues for both you, the business owner, and your employees. While 70% of staff find submitting records laborious. With the digital pen, your workforce can finally avoid unnecessary trips back and forth to the office dropping off paperwork, as data is automatically sent back to base. This reduces your staff expenses, and frees up admin time, allowing your staff to be more productive.

3) Provide accurate reporting

The digital pen is a real-time tool. Allowing your business to offer a professional service with timely, accurate reporting. Run a delivery service? You can finally avoid customer disputes over delivery times, or monitor how timely your drivers are. Whether you’re an engineer, healthcare worker, surveyor, training officer or a delivery driver, working in the field means you need data sent back to base quickly. With the digital pen, you can do just that, transmitting data in a matter of minutes, accurately and securely.

4) Offer a professional, modernised service

With the digital pen, you can customise your data capture sheets. Fully branding forms and other documents. Write with the digital pen, or use it with smartphones or tablets. We can adapt the digital pen to fit in with your business needs. While you can show your customers that you are up to date with the latest technology, and provide an accurate, timely, service.
