Christmas has raced towards us, and if your office is like ours, you’ll have had ‘must-do’ projects which needed to be well wrapped and under the tree by December 25.
But even amid the time for family and mince pies, many will still be working. Thousands more people who rely on technology to carry out their jobs will also be working, from the care teams we support in nursing and residential homes to the vets out in the farmyards helping to deliver the four-legged, and less famous, Christmas arrivals.
In both these cases, and many more, investment has gone in to using technology in an innovative way to improve business practices, to make life easier for staff, to ensure the right processes and procedures have been followed.
Business owners have made a conscious decision to look at how IT can deliver value not only to their companies but also to their customers. And in the end, both reap the rewards.
As a business owner myself, I know that lords may be a leaping and a couple of turtle doves flying – but the 12 days of Christmas are often a period of reflection for many directors.
If you’re thinking about next year and your business goals, we’d be delighted to help review your IT and recommend some steps which may be worth taking.
It could be a low cost upgrade to software security or a suggestion to replace your server in 18 months time. One of the best presents we give to our clients is a way to cut their telephone communication costs by 30%. Now that’s a gift worth unwrapping.
