Demystifying Technology: Where do You Start?

So, you need a new finance system.

Or perhaps it’s time to implement a more sophisticated HR or CRM software?

Maybe you are looking to transition your entire business to the cloud?

As a business owner, you are always looking to take your business to the next level and champion growth. And in an age of rapid technological advancement, opportunities are endless.

But therein often lies the problem: It is a common mistake to underestimate the impacts of the technological change.

My simple solution to this problem that will guarantee smooth sailing?

Slow and steady wins the race.

You have likely faced sales pitches from IT vendors telling you what you want to hear – that everything is possible with their solution.

Or you might have come to the realisation that there is no single solution to carry your business into the future, and that you need an ‘ecosystem’ of integrated systems.

Technology might hold the answer, but it can also be complex, which is why it’s important to keep your implementation strategy simple. You also need your team to ‘adapt to and adopt’ the new technology, or else they will go back to old ways.

For successful deployment, lay your priorities on the table and determine what your first move will be.

And focus just on that.

What’s most important for your business?

What technology will help you improve your current processes?

What will be most beneficial for your people?

Successful change happens in phases, so break down your implementation strategy. Commit to what is best for your business in phase one, then move on to the next. There is no need to achieve everything at once.

Not that you shouldn’t be ambitious!

But don’t bite off more than you can chew.

So, what will be your first move?
