New Year, New Technology?
In opinion / By Lydia Cooper / 11 January 2019
For most of us, Christmas is now a distant memory and we’re well and truly back into the swing of things at work. January is often a time for reflection and planning, a time when most of us return to work bursting with fresh ideas and new enthusiasms.
When it comes to success, we’re all guilty of thinking that new “stuff” is the key. We often take on the mindset that the only thing holding us back is what we don’t have.
Purchasing the latest new shiny tool, whatever it may be, can all too often turn out to be a distraction away from and sometimes at the expense of strategy and business development. This new year, instead of focusing on the tools your business doesn’t have, take stock of what systems you are utilising daily and ask yourself - are these systems fit to support your future business operations?
Chances are they are; however, they may not currently be fully utilised and therefore it might feel like they are falling short of the mark. Or perhaps they need integrating with other systems or bespoke customisation and configuration to support the unique objectives of your business.
While there are many new technology and software solutions entering the market now, the ability to share data between new web-based solutions with traditional back-office applications has not been fully realised. The value in many of these new solutions is often in integrating data from these tools with existing datasets to enable more informed decision-making about potential markets to target. As well as this, they help teach the best ways to align resources, achieve better candidate and client fit and user experience.
Our dedicated team of specialists provide business technology consulting for customers with extended support in applications, CRMs and databases. Such expertise comes from years of experience in using, supporting, maintaining, configuring and customising applications, integrations and databases and therefore the team has a unique view of how things work.
For example, today’s recruitment agency needs to look at how data can be harmonised into one central portal, integrated seamlessly and available to interrogate for more informed decision-making. Nasstar has supported a number of agencies with pulling together all of their applications so that data can be securely shared, enabling them to capitalise on newer tools and applications through managed networks in a secure and managed way.
As well as consulting services and business technology solutions, Nasstar also delivers innovation-as-a-service to all clients. By strategically helping you understand how technology can elevate your business, we can help turn you into top performers in your industry.
