Ways to Cut Costs with Technology

Now more than ever, the first thing on every business owner’s mind is
saving money. Perhaps one of the most effective ways to do so is
through the use of technology. While there are a number of ways in
which technology can reduce costs for business, these five solutions
are straightforward to implement and produce results quickly.

1. Outsource Information Technology Needs
Right now, businesses are struggling to do more with less. By
outsourcing technology needs such as IT Support, Website Hosting, and
Computer Networking, any business can get the benefits of having a
full-time IT staff at a fraction of the cost. In addition to saving
money, outsourcing technology needs saves valuable time, giving
business owners and employees alike the freedom to focus on profitable
daily operations.
2. Evaluate Current Software
Businesses that haven’t taken the time to evaluate their software may
very well be missing valuable opportunities to streamline certain
processes. By assessing the effectiveness of current technologies and
identifying areas in which productivity can be improved, businesses can
significantly increase their overall effectiveness. In fact, the right
customized software solution can remove 20-50% of a company’s excess
labor. Any way you look at it, decreased labor means decreased costs
for businesses.
3. Conduct a Website Audit
The virtual storefront of a business, a website has the potential to
attract qualified customers and as a result, boost revenue. However,
issues with design, usability, and functionality can hinder a
website’s ability to convert site traffic into customers. A website
audit conducted by a qualified professional can help businesses
identify ways to increase revenue, transforming an unprofitable site
into a lucrative resource.
4. Monitor Computer Systems
When technology fails, businesses lose money in the form of lost
productivity, lost sales, and costly repairs. By having their computer
systems monitored round-the-clock, businesses can identify and resolve
technology issues before they result in unnecessary maintenance costs
and lost revenue. Investing in a monitoring service now can help to
save any business from incurring the high costs of a future technology
failure.
5. Integrate Business Systems
In the current economic climate, no business can afford to waste time
or manpower. When employees spend time entering the same data into
separate software applications, productivity can suffer. Integration
with multiple business systems can cut costs by reducing the need for
redundant data entry and making necessary information readily
available.
