The Internet allows a business to virtually travel into new markets without the cost of an executive jet or the risks of creating a factory abroad. reckons the way in which we experience things online and on our phones matters more than we think when it comes to scaling a company.

Find ways to make use of the internet in a way that can upscale your company other than having a 'brand presence online.' There are many innovative products and technology out there that can assist the growth plans in any organization.   

Cloud Technology
Cloud technology as you would know, is not a new phenomenon but if your company has not taken full advantage of it, maybe it's time it did. Cloud is the single most influential technological advancement over the past few years.

Here are benefits tied to using cloud computing:

  • It's cost efficient. Moving to cloud will save you money, not just for your cloud security needs, but for many other types of data center workloads.
  • It reduces your carbon footprint. Hosting in a data center rather than onsite allows you to take advantage of the latest energy-efficient technology.
  • It's reliable. With a managed service platform, cloud computing is much more reliable and consistent than in-house IT infrastructure.

Cloud is much more than just a tool to store files and enjoy other technology-related benefits. It changes the way in which companies work, granting them more freedom, but always keeping control over all their resources.

Monitoring productivity
Online business productivity software solutions enable managers to easily track progresses during every phase of goal completion. One such software is Basecamp, it's ideal for a full range of web based project management tools, if you manage multiple clients and projects at a time, and if you need multiple people within your organization to access projects and to-do lists.

Here are some advantages of using this in your business:

  • Track Projects. Keep track of the progress of projects with project management software. The software will let you know what's been completed, as well as by whom, and what still needs to be done.
  • Efficient team collaboration. A collaborative project management tool connects your team to their work and colleagues. Teams can quickly build a culture of collaboration by sharing sites and document managements.
  • No hardware, no installation. Cloud based tools do not require hardware; neither any installation.

The advances in technology and specifically the internet and computers means that employees no longer have physical restriction but can really work from anywhere at anytime. While there are certainly challenges associated with embracing mobility, companies continue to invest in it because of the benefits to the overall business that includes improved ROI, increased workforce efficiency and productivity, and the ability to capitalize on opportunities and bring new revenue streams online more quickly.

No matter the size of your business, technology has both tangible and intangible benefits that will help you make money and produce the results your customers demand. Technological infrastructure affects the culture, efficiency and relationships of a business.
