Using Technology: Small Business Strategies
Technology has the capacity to help small businesses, but only when the goals of the business are clearly defined. Small businesses often turn to technology as a means to survive downturns in the business cycle.
The most pressing issues facing small business concerns:
- Lowering Operating Costs
- Attracting and Retaining Customers
- Enabling Employment of a Remote Workforce
Small businesses interested in using technology for one of these purposes might find it impractical, expensive and time-consuming to acquire and utilize the most advanced technologies available on the market. The needs of small businesses certainly vary by industry, but pervasive technology trends can help identify specific areas where small business owners are likely to invest their precious resources.
Business Server and Software
A small to midsize server can reduce costs and help the business to gain access to virtual customers as well as harness the expanding virtual remote workforce.
Software products designed specifically to address the needs of the small business operation are surging in popularity. Their excellent functionality and low maintenance provide new avenues for businesses to track various transactions, reach new customers and even prepare for the tax season.
