Business technology tips for 2014

Technology is continually evolving and it can be hard to keep up, but there are a few key ways to make sure your business isn’t left behind.

Business solutions provider UXC Eclipse has some tips to help businesses prepare for the year ahead:

Risk Mitigation

Businesses must moderate the risks associated with large projects and software investments to manage the global economic uncertainty.

Anna Callaghan of EXC Eclipse said that businesses must demand their implementation partner offers quality assurance for all projects to mitigate the inherent risks associated with the software implementation lifecycle.

Changes to privacy laws will also be coming into force in March, meaning it’s important for businesses to ensure they have the correct procedures and safeguards in place when sharing customer data with other parties.

Embrace the Cloud

The option to use software in the cloud is now available for almost every application. Businesses should consider using the cloud, or a hybrid cloud and on-premise approach, to save money, and improve productivity and business flexibility.

Mobility

Mobility is key for both employees and consumers today. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend continues to grow in popularity as more businesses realise the benefits of allowing employees to bring their own devices to work.

Consumers also expect to be able to interact with businesses anytime and anywhere, whether it’s through mobile apps, online shops, or social media.
