Embrace Tech

Digital technology solutions to help businesses thrive!

Businesses large and small are investing in digital technology solutions. Why? To be competitive, more resilient, save costs, and most importantly, customers expect it. But with so many to choose from, what are the right solutions for your business?

Find out why!

Digital Technology

Today’s consumers expect to interact with businesses using online tools and digital technology. But according to a Deloitte small and mid-sized business (SMB) study* a few years ago, most businesses were not using even the basic tools. The top 20% tech savvy businesses saw huge benefits compared to the bottom 20% tech laggards.

Benefits included:

  • Earned 2X as much revenue per employee
  • Experienced 4X the revenue growth over the previous year
  • Were almost 3X as likely to create jobs over the previous year
  • Had more than 6X the average employment growth rate
  • Were 3X as likely to have exported over the previous year

So what did these tech savvy businesses do that made such an impact?  More importantly, how can your business begin to enjoy the same benefits of the technically engaged businesses?

Communicate

A basic necessity for any business is a website where customers can access important information they need to know. But that’s not all. Social media has become important in establishing and nurturing relationships that “brick and mortar” businesses naturally developed. Find out how  >>

Collaborate

It’s essential to identify what is important to every business, align objectives and key results (OKRs), then identify metrics to measure what matters. This ensures resources are working on what matters to the business, optimizes collaboration and minimizes wasted work. Find out more  >>

Automate

Effective organizations don’t get bogged down with busy work. They automate much of the repetitive behind-the-scenes processes in marketing, sales, and customer support to focus on impactful customer experiences. Discover their secrets >>

*Unfortunately, there is no standard of what constitutes a small or mid-sized business. The US Small Business Administration definition of small business varies by industry, ranging from $1 million to over $40 million in total revenues and by employment from 100 to over 1,500 employees.
