Are Disconnected Systems Slowly Killing Your SMB?
Published: June 10, 2016
There is nothing more frustrating than when you’re on a roll at work only to be slowed down or completely stalled by unintuitive technology. Instead of simplifying processes, technology can make things worse, forcing you to take a time-wasting detour.
As an organization, not only is this bad for the bottom line, it deters employees from working at your company altogether. Younger employees expect a level of technology that helps them do their jobs. Born with phones and tablets in their hands, they know what technology can do. According to Forbes, millennials will represent nearly 75 percent of the workforce by 2030. In order to compete, it is vital to implement the right technology platforms today to create a workplace that will foster success.
