3 Ways Technology Drives Small Business Growth

Nov 04 3:37 PM

Investing in technology is essential for every business, it enables day-to-day processes and is an opportunity to open up new ways of doing business.

1. Flexibility

Integrating a cloud-based platform like Microsoft 365 allows employees to work from home or anywhere in the world. Giving your employees flexibility increases morale as well as productivity, while also improving your company's resilience to changes in the environment.

2. Productivity

The primary purpose of technology is to make us more productive and efficient – it’s constantly improving to save us time. Apps like Microsoft to-do, Wunderlist and Asana help keep projects on track while programs like Microsoft Teams, Slack and Zoom allow you to connect with people no matter where you are.

3. Cybersecurity

Investing in cybersecurity technologies such as anti-virus, 2FA, firewalls and email threat filters vastly reduces the risk of your system getting compromised (there is no bulletproof system!). The average amount of downtime due to a ransomware attack is 16.2 days. Can your business afford this amount of time offline?
