I recently finished up a tech review for a client. They’ve made a lot of progress over the past six months and so I made a graphic to share with them the progress that we’ve made together. In this specific clients case they’ve really made a lot of progress with the tech in their business.
In the tech field I have the opportunity of working with all sorts of businesses. And while businesses may come come in all shapes and sizes and provide services across many disciplines. I have found that most businesses are operating in one of three speeds when it comes to decision making, growth and success.
If you haven’t received an email yet about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you must not be living on planet earth. That or you don’t check your email very often. You see, most of the providers we use on a regular basis are global. Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Salesforce, etc. This means they do business in The European Union.
I met with a prospect the other day that told me they had to wait 4 days to get a new user account set up. Yep. 4 days. Nuts! It’s gets worse. This was an improvement from their former IT provider who only came in once a week for a few hours. Imagine having to wait 4 days to get a new employee added to your systems.
Microsoft Office 365 is everywhere. Over 90% of the clients that I work with the Office 365 platform. It’s fairly easy to get started with Office 365. All it takes is a some basic tech skills and a credit card and your up and running. The helps business get up and running on the platform in short order. It’s pretty awesome.
Working in the tech field it’s not uncommon to hear a client say that every time they see me it’s because they need to spend money. And while this is a generalization, there is some truth to it. The sad part is when people think that getting the tech right in their business just means spending money.
Last weekend my wife and I moved to a new place. We’d been at our old place for years and decided it was time for a change and an upgrade. We did our research, selected a new location... And then the planning started. Everything was mapped out and planned in advance. I help companies move to new locations all the time. So planning a home move should be a walk in the park? Shouldn’t it?
