What is Digital Transformation?
Although a broad term, Digital Transformation is the process of your business going through the journey of changing its paper-based processes into digital ones. Digital Transformation can involve many different technologies including job and workflow scheduling, digital time and attendance as well as implementing Internet of Things sensors to replace manual processes. It’s an opportunity for your business to operate more efficiently, enable smoother collaboration and create more business opportunities in an ever-evolving technological landscape. Digital Transformation is a mindset that keeps your business up to speed with the latest technology, with ever increasing focus on Cloud-based technology. Over time, the fundamental changes deliver seamless efficiency to your clients and improve the culture within your business too.
What are the business benefits of Digital Transformation?
The primary focus and main business benefit of Digital Transformation is to invest in scalable applications that accommodate and support the future growth of a modern experience. Implementing Digital Transformation benefits your business by means of reducing the expenditure of paper-based processes or incumbent business systems. This in turn, frees up parts of your organisation’s budget that can be reinvested into other areas of your business.
Simplify your business processes
Complicated and historic business processes and procedures slow your business down. One of the main benefits of Digital Transformation is that it makes business processes much more streamlined. Imagine a team member having to report into a location to collect a paper form, completing it in the field and having to return to base. This process can be streamlined, automated and repeated, saving time, cost and motivating staff.
Data driven insights and reports
Another benefit of Digital Transformation is that it can help you make important business decisions based on real-time data reports and insights. By being able to use visualised data, you’ll be able to understand your processes and customers in more detail which helps propel your business forward.
Digital Transformation will empower your business to implement a truly data-driven management thanks to the variety of tools for tracking metrics and analysing data. Using insights derived from this data allows your business to optimise its strategies and processes so that you can deliver even better results.
A secure and compliant environment
Cyber crime is becoming increasingly prevalent and organisations are storing more and more of their sensitive data online as time progresses, which is why you need a solution that is compliant with GDPR and an operational standard such as ISO 27001. Organisations need their data to be accessed from a centralised web portal which is hosted within The Cloud as well as the 99.9% up time and mirroring/backup that the best Cloud solutions providers can deliver.
