Is it time for your business to consider its next way to innovate?
If this year has taught us anything within business, it's that we need to shape our business models to become comfortable and fluid with potential change, in order to be able to maintain maximised productivity, no matter the environment.If you were to make an in-depth investigation into businesses such as Amazon and Netflix, it would clearly demonstrate - quickly - that constant innovation by each of these companies has ensured that their businesses models have been able to adapt, and pivot to any new challenge that they may be presented with. For context, Amazon was once an online bookstore, and Netflix a DVD postal service in the late 1990s. However, both of these, now powerhouses, sit at the top of their respected industries, and the element that both of their pathways to success have in common, is that they both very quickly became understanding of the constant need for innovation. Businesses such as these serve as the perfect role models for others to act now - get ahead of the curve and innovate for the future.
Many still believe that there is a place for the office within society, and I would agree. However, the business world is a forever evolving jigsaw - whereby new pieces of the puzzle keep appearing unannounced, and it is up to us to find the best ways to deal with these constant new developments.
A new approach to digitising your office could be the answer to providing your workforce - both now and in the future - with the tools and ammunition it requires to maintain maximised productivity, no matter the environment.
By digitising your office, not only can you streamline and innovate processes within Accounting & Finance, and HR & Marketing, you can reduce your paper load and keep headcount low, enhance remote working, and make your business more sustainable for the long term, thus providing an instant return on investment. The times of having to spend hours searching for documents in a filing cabinet, manually typing in data, and finding a place to store documents is in the past. Now is the time to innovate your office approach, reduce long-term costs and make your life easier.
For context, Industry research firm Gartner, Inc., estimates that as much as 3% of a company's revenue is spent on paper, printing, filing and the costs to store and maintain files of information. In addition, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year. A point to be raised, however, especially within a 2020 context, is; when working from home, how does one even access the documents that they need to when they need too?
