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!
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 It could be that manual practices need total replacement, or that you’re using old, outdated IT that’s slowing you down.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!

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.
