Technology continues to enhance how we live, communicate with others and conduct business. The latest uses of technology strengthen old processes (usually through digitization or automation) and create new pathways to connect with customers, vendors and employees in ways only imagined not long ago. When applied correctly, technology can be a game-changer for many small businesses.
For small business owners, using new technologies to help with core business functions could be the difference between growth, stagnation or failure. Business owners diving into the tech world should take time to understand the variations available to them, identify their business needs and invest in the right technology for their business size and long-term growth.
