The answer is yes. Updating Technology you use every day can increase your revenue.
Most technology doesn't age as gracefully as we would hope. Hanging onto old hardware isn’t necessarily saving you money. It could actually be costing you money, time, and even customers.
Are you still using a traditional phone system that doesn’t give you access to advanced features?
Are your workstations running too slow and lowering your employee’s productivity?
Have you had more than your share of trouble with virus and malware infections?
With the rapid rate that technology is evolving, it can often feel impossible to keep up, and many continue to use their old outdated technology. It can be easy to find yourself holding on to old hardware because of the uncertainty that comes with new technology itself, and the process of updating your company to the newest hardware. While this does rationally sound like it’s saving money, it’s actually harming your business’s bottom line.
We’ve seen businesses realize the benefits of update their technology time and time again. Three of the biggest reasons for these benefits are:
- Improved reputation in the marketplace – companies with modern technology and equipment are viewed as being more innovative and efficient
- Decreased operational expenses – your new technology won’t have the same virus and malware or speed issues that outdated and possibly unsupported hardware has
- Enhanced customer service – modern technology can give you access to real time information, and better collaboration/communication tools to help your customers
Updated your technology may seem daunting and sometimes even impossible, but with the right help and information, spending the money on new technology is going to save you money down the road.
