The relationship between small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and Information Technology (IT) can often be described as a “love/hate” relationship. You absolutely rely on technology to help your business run efficiently, but IT is most likely not one of your core competencies – and just keeping your systems running can be a major undertaking that distracts you from business-building activities.
In today's global business environment, the value of working together, or collaboration, can have a huge positive impact on your business. Your employees and teams need to work together, and share ideas and information across geographic boundaries. For a small business such as yours, effective collaboration is essential to improving productivity by empowering your employees to communicate and work more efficiently using the right communications tools.
For small businesses in today’s high-tech society, Information Technology (IT) has become a significant consideration. Implementing new technology is a challenging job for small business owners and can cause numerous difficulties in day-to-day operations. Many small businesses are finding Managed IT Services as a solution to get the most from their IT investment.
The business landscape is changing. It’s more focused on creating new competitive advantages and breakthroughs by necessity. New and changing customers, global integration, business model innovation and new technology models are driving changes in the global economy today. Businesses are forced to change in fundamental ways - structurally, operationally and culturally in response to the imperatives of globalization and new technology.
