In this day and age, the business world is evolving ever so continuously. So what will happen if you lose touch with these digitizing advancements? Can you afford to fall short of customer and employee expectations?
Simply being oblivious towards adapting to these advancements will cause any organization to fall victim to labels of being outdated or obsolete. Simply put, this can either be seen as an oncoming threat, or a propelling opportunity. An opportunity to truly progress both business and workflow efficiency.
Digitization and the importance of Digitalization have become terms thrown around when discussing current business models and operations. In simple terms, its creating a digital version of projects and processes, whether the data are emails, excel spreadsheets, or hard copy documents. It is an adaption which offers a way to improve and automate workflow.
“Paper is a good place to start thinking about digital transformation, because it is the Achilles heel of most organisations. Paper clogs up processes. Paper creates disruptions to smooth information flows. Digital processes require digital information.” John Mancini, Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM).
Let's consider the early stages of any business inputs. For example, customer information. Whether this information is digital or paper-based, this will ultimately determine the productivity in all proceeding processes. The integration of digitization must be implemented from within the core if any business model.
Integrating technology is a process which must be a tailor-made experience for each and every business. There is no equation or method which can be universally applied. Each company's business requirements and intended user experiences are unique and acquire customized attention and solutions. Solutions with the potential to vastly improve efficiency improvement, and continuous stable operation.
