Technology in 2019 for small businesses.
2019 will see an increase in technology-driven organisations, as more businesses embark on the digital transformation journey. Digital connectivity for small businesses will change from being an asset to a ‘must have’.
With the economy slowing down Australian businesses need to be more innovative, smart & effective to remain relevant and endure a positive cash flow. Decision making backed by business reporting is going to be critical for businesses to stay in front and produce good results. Businesses taking advantages of the ever-changing improvements in technology are finding opportunities for growth.
Consumers are becoming savvier and relying on their hand-held devices to find their perfect purchase. Businesses who aren’t visible are losing a ton of potential customers. Businesses who are engaging in technology to make things easier and more engaging are more appealing to the consumer.
Apps, robotic process automation, chat-bots, real-time tracking & reporting, virtual reality, marketing automation, interactive tools that produce real-time data, mobile friendly, cloud based focusing on sustainability, digital ethics & privacy, cyber-security... the list goes on. When considering technology trends, always think about how they will affect your consumers, your employees and your efficiency. Technology is efficient, it frees up a lot of time and often ensures things are done correctly.
Technology will enhance your businesses digital presence, change the way your business interacts with potential consumers, improve the efficiency and quality of your product or services and allow you to monitor your business performance and make education decisions.
