Many companies use technology wrong and it’s not their fault.
With the rise of different business solutions at such a breakneck speed, it has been nearly impossible for new software & services to be properly deployed within most businesses. Even the companies that adopt these new methodologies are doing so in a way that’s rarely the recommended way.
Many organizations become set in their ways. The mentality of maintaining the status quo out of fear of change leads them to become outdated and inefficient before they realize what’s happened. Taking the time to assess your own processes and researching the latest solutions will highlight where you can improve.
That being said, just because something is new, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better or worse. It’s just new. Make sure to properly research and analyze any solutions to avoid needlessly changing how you do business or incorporating the wrong solution.
Gone are the days where an organization's workforce need to be anchored down with old solutions and technologies. Strive to provide a more flexible set of tools & services for your employees to minimize employee frustration and create a more agile and responsive workforce.
Technology doesn't need to be complicated and it’s highly unlikely you require a complicated solution. Look for solutions that incorporate automation and can be easily connected and integrated with other useful providers while still being easy to use.
Of course there are countless other things that you should be weary of, but by focusing primarily on these key points, you can easily avoid many of the most common pitfalls.
