Is Your Technology at Risk?

“The times they are a-changin’.” – Bob Dylan

More than just an iconic song from the 1960s, the message still rings true in every aspect of our lives - perhaps most notably in the field of technology.

Look at today's world: Our mobile workforce can now conduct business almost anywhere via laptop, tablet, or mobile device. It’s projected that by 2018, Millennials will be the dominant group in both the workforce and the consumer markets and they are perhaps the most technologically skilled of all generations.

The speed of business, innovation of resources, and consumer expectations are increasing at an unprecedented pace. Are you keeping up with these challenges?

Statistics show that the average consumer replaces their mobile device every 26 months.  Relate this back to your business. When was the last time you upgraded the software tools that your team is using?  Consider some of the benefits gained by keeping your technology current:

  • Reduce the need for customization as newer software addresses these challenges inherently
  • Maximize team member productivity with streamlined processes
  • Compatibility with integrated technology solutions
  • Keeping ahead of your competition  with innovative new experiences

If your team is working with technology solutions that are more than 3-4 years old. You are placing your organization at risk in any of the areas noted above.  I think what General Eric Shinseki stated about change aptly applies here:

“If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less.”

Think about it. Newmarket sales and catering solutions provide you innovative new tools to you address your business needs and ensure you don’t end up on the later end of the captioned quote.
