Future-proofing your business with Microcomms

by Jo Smith in Microcomms News

Future proofing your business is a concept that can encompass many things. What we at Microcomms specialise in, is ensuring your IT and technical capabilities are not only up to the task of coping with your current day-to-day operations, but of growing and evolving with the times.

What does ‘future proofing’ mean?

What we’ve come to understand is that, for business owners, the rate of change and the constant need to ‘future proof’ your digital infrastructure can be daunting. The ‘Internet of Things’ phenomenon has accelerated the need for all businesses to gain a better understanding of technology. It is crucial to know, for example, how technology can not only enable, but further, your productivity. This, in turn, can increase your competitive advantage and establish your businesses’ unique value proposition – surely something any Business Manager would want to achieve!

Future proof your business with Microcomms!

The importance of future proofing

The reality in the modern world is that digital transformation is not just an idyll, but an imperative. It’s crucial for all organisations, from the smallest local brand, to the largest global enterprise. By implementing new processes and automation, you can transform your business. It could be that manual practices need total replacement, or that you’re using old, outdated IT that’s slowing you down. By exploring your strategy in its entirety, not only can you enable your organisation to revolutionise the way it works, you can also empower your employees to become more efficient and effective, and offer a more refined service to your customers. That’s a win-win-win!

How can we help your business?

At Microcomms, we pride ourselves on our ability to identify and strategise your business’ transformation. We’re here to support you through this new digital age, and we promise to bring ideas, strategy and a wealth of experience to every IT project we work on. Our clients choose us because of the value we provide at every stage. Our approach is to treat your business like our own, which means that we are always striving to achieve the very best possible results. We can guide you through every step of the way, and the beauty of our service is that whilst we pride ourselves on a comprehensive service to cover every aspect of your digital transformation, we can also offer each as a standalone service. 

So if you’re ready to future-proof your business and need help, give us a call! Alternatively, if you’re interested to know more about what digital transformation means and what the various considerations are, then you can attend a Digital Transformation Workshop completely free of charge.

What is a Digital Transformation workshop?

These sessions offer a fantastic opportunity to bring key stakeholders within your business into a workshop with IT experts from various sectors within our company, providing you with the support you need to understand your business’ key objectives. They can also help you to move forward with your plans.

So what might a session include? The first thing to do is to review your current IT systems and digital landscape. This, in turn, will help you to identify any blockers in the business that are leading to challenges and unnecessary dependencies. You’ll also consider the systems that you use, and review any new alternatives that could better the way you work, for example collaboration tools. 

Helping your business to hit its goals

As part of the workshop, you will also review your short, medium and long-term goals by completing a 5 Year Outlook, which is a great tool to help ‘sharpen the mind’ and hone your focus. Assessing your team’s capabilities is also a key part of the session, as are your current levels of engagement. The latter is especially important, and by now most people will agree that the greatest businesses not only score highly on customer engagement, but on staff engagement, too. It is absolutely vital to have a team that’s ‘on board’, as this will ensure you have the right people in place to champion your 5 year goal and capitalise on your digital transformation efforts. 

This really is a comprehensive workshop to jump-start your future-proofing project. It’ll also cover budget justification and ROI on any required investment; you’ll brainstorm with our team of experts your ideas and key considerations for your particular business; and crucially, you’ll discuss timescales, ensuring a realistic ‘time budget’ is given to properly transform your business.

“Aaron and his associates were wonderful to work with during all phases of opening up our new office! They were informative and took the time to explain how some of the new technology worked (in “layman’s terms”) with patience and hands on demonstrations. The team followed up with notes afterwards and was very thorough and never failed to address any questions or issues we had even after they departed. Super personable as well, they felt like family before they left! Enjoyed working with them! ”.
