Do you ever think, “I’d be so much more productive if I invested in a typewriter?”
Surely, you’re laughing, but I can remember visiting my grandparent’s office as a child and the only things on their desk were:
There were no computers and the term Wi-Fi hadn’t been coined. However, because their customers, vendors and competitors didn’t have computers and cellphones, they weren’t missing out on anything.
It’s impressive how far businesses have come in the past 30 years because of the ever-changing technology. Imagine going to work and not having a computer, or email, or internet. It would be a very long day.
Today, an average household has 5 connected devices. Because your customers and competitors use technology throughout the entire day, your business has to stay up to speed.
Technology is the driving force behind every business and without it, it’s nearly impossible to conduct your day to day operations. But what’s worse, is when the technology in your business is holding you back from your business goals.
Technology in your business should make you more efficient, save you time and in the end, impact your bottom line in a positive way. Without a secure infrastructure in place, your employees aren’t able to do their job to the best of their ability.
If you find yourself getting frustrated with dealing with your network or find that you are losing precious time during your day waiting on an application to load, it might be time to look into your current IT infrastructure. It’s essential to take the time to invest in your technology to ensure that the technology in your company is working for you and not against you.
