An organization’s ability to integrate forward-thinking technology is not an option, but a key business strategy. It is not only customers who expect customized on-demand services, but also employees.
In recent research, nearly half (48.6 percent) of workers think that having the right technology increases their productivity, while 35.8 percent say that having the right technology allows them to be more flexible in their jobs.
To drive faster results and adapt to changing market trends, businesses of all sizes must leverage technology that can help them increase team creativity and productivity. For enterprises, leveraging modern technology such as mobile apps, AI-enabled services, and cloud automation is imperative for simplifying or automating time-consuming day-to-day tasks so their employees can focus on more challenging tasks.
To take your team to the next level in our increasingly digital world, businesses must find a balance between implementing emerging technology for automatable tasks and training employees on how to provide personalized experiences for clients.
For business owners who want to scale their business efficiently, these three emerging technologies are a must-have.
A high-speed network infrastructure
Having slow and unstable connectivity is a major obstacle for a distributed workforce that relies on their PCs for brainstorming, listening and engaging during monthly planning meetings, and/or connecting with team members during 1:1 meetings. With WiFi 6E, you can optimize work-from-home, online learning, live streaming, and enjoy faster speeds across all your connected devices.
Technology such as Wifi 6E will enable high bandwidth, ultra-low latency connectivity and power for devices around the world, and will expand the options for businesses that want to grow.
For employees on the go, thin and flexible designs must also be offered in addition to faster and more functional devices. PC manufacturers are designing laptops with built-in secondary screens adjacent to the keyboard or foldable displays and extended battery life to let you work uninterrupted throughout the day – even with flexible use modes. In order to maintain business continuity, forward-thinking technology equipped with always-on, always-connected capabilities will be vital.
Businesses looking to automate their processes through technology-enabled automation will find cloud automation to be an easy entry point. Cloud computing enables small-to-medium businesses in particular to automate tasks such as scheduling appointments, content marketing management, and tracking business expenses in one place as data, apps, and workloads shift to the cloud.
By using automation solutions to free up some time, leaders can provide employees with a variety of training programs or enrichment opportunities to become more productive. The examples above illustrate how digital transformation can be used to increase efficiency, productivity, and smart collaboration for businesses of all sizes.
It is possible for business owners to give their employees more time to deliver thoughtful and creative work by automating certain tasks. The prospect of automation can create uncertainty, both in terms of job security and changes to day-to-day duties. It is essential to communicate with employees throughout the entire process in order to reduce these fears. We need to emphasize the message, “Automation technology supports staff, not replaces them.” Employees will stay loyal and engaged in their work and the success of their company by receiving plenty of enrichment opportunities and being provided with continuous learning opportunities through open communication and continuous learning.
AI-enabled services and products
Our homes, cars, and personal computing devices now use AI-enabled services, and AI can also help businesses address common challenges such as staffing, security monitoring, finance management, and personalization of services.
AI chatbots are being used by some companies to provide employees with 24/7 access to resources, such as answers to questions about employee benefits, scheduling, insurance, vacation availability, and sick days. Chatbots allow HR staff to spend more time addressing more complex employee issues by automating some HR processes without human intervention.
Adapting to AI-enabled services and products can provide companies with a competitive advantage. With AI and machine learning, employees are able to perform creative and social tasks that AI cannot. By using AI for repetitive work, companies save money, and their teams are able to focus on more innovative assignments, thereby increasing productivity.
Be strategic and adaptable in your business
Businesses must strategically implement the right infrastructure, cloud automation, and AI tools in order to scale their business. Client and data center infrastructure must enable growth rather than restrict it today for businesses of all sizes.
Businesses need to be able to seamlessly integrate the latest technologies, workloads, and budgets within their resource, budget, and capital constraints as technology rapidly evolves. It is crucial that you regularly check in with your team, evaluate your structure, and ensure it is adaptable to the foreseeable obstacles that come with running a business.
