Adapting oneself to technology or falling into obsolescence

Technology

Technology is part of your daily life, from the moment you wake up until the time you go to bed. Even while you sleep, different things and appliances are part of your day-to-day.

As stated on previous articles, companies have now access to tools that in the past could only be used by big firms.

But not only companies have had access to more information and resources, also the clients, who have become more demanding consumers.

These factors generate high levels of competition, focusing the difference on aspects which were ignored in the past.

This is why we want to point out the need to adapt ourselves to today’s practices. Specifically, we would like to focus on the importance of using programs which could really help your company to reach an ideal management.
Many times, the fear to use new resources arises due to the comfort generated by a system that already works.
But, if you are willing to grow in today’s market, you must analyze if the tools you use are the best for your company.

Some common fallacies:

If it’s not broken, don’t repair it

It’s true that this concept is applicable to many aspects. However, as already pointed out, technology moves forwards every day and this is why you must check if the tools you are using allow you to reach your company’s highest potential. It could be already broken and maybe you haven’t noticed it.

Too many costs

In today’s world you can find free platforms, or really cheap platforms. Once you identify the problem you need to solve, you will be able to find the tools which will help you find the solution. You should analyze implementation time, usability, and licenses’ costs; and then evaluate them over the benefits you’ll get.

Implementation troubles

Nowadays, software companies are focused on usability and on avoiding tedious setups, and are therefore exponentially improving these aspects.

Do not restrict your potential because of ignoring the existence of means which can be incredibly useful for the development of your firm. Technology itself is the one forcing us to change.
