What does Digital Transformation mean for you?

Digital transformation doesn’t just mean cutting edge technologies, it also means making full use of what is available now, which many organisations are lagging behind with. Critical to the adoption of new technologies is having employees with the skills to effectively use them.

Adopting digital marketing

  • Making sure your organisation has a presence on all relevant online platforms
  • Ensuring your business appears in the top search engine rankings

Moving from spreadsheets to software solutions and databases

  • E.g. adopting a CRM system
  • Cleansing the data ready for a database

Automating data entry

  • E.g. forms capture data and API links transfer data from one system to another, such as from a website to a CRM or database
  • Increase efficiencies, reduce double data entry and inaccuracies

Utilising data

  • Using a reporting system to present critical data to internal and external stakeholders and customers
  • E.g. sales and marketing performance, customer insights, delivery effectiveness

Moving from physical infrastructure to the cloud

  • Reducing the need for onsite hardware
  • Seeking greener credentials as an organisation
  • Reduce the need for physical office space if employees work from home

Making full use of productivity tools and essential software

  • Platforms like Microsoft Teams are powerful tools to help manage workloads and facilitate project management
  • The success or failure of implementing these systems depends on staff engagement
