The modern executive appreciates that technology plays a leading role in the company and in doing so knows that technology is NOT just the computer on the desk... or the smart phone!
Companies that understand and apply best-of-breed technology to productive or service advantage tend to lead in their field of business.
In this modern day, the executive needs to maintain tech-vigilance and must appreciate the impact that technology has on business.
Notwithstanding the valuable role that in-house IT experts play in an organisation, it is often wise to take a second opinion. In-house experts are often only proficient in very narrow fields of technology and can sometimes miss the “Big-Picture”.
Familiarity, habit, product loyalty or sometimes even fear of change often cause IT personnel to stick to one breed of technology. This can be very dangerous and counter-productive for business and sometimes leaves executives questioning whether existing or proposed systems are optimal, safe, or for that matter, ideal for the intended purpose.
Leading on from this comes the concept of "usability". Too often companies acquire and deploy process or management systems that are so sophisticated that they actually cause greater innefficiency .. maybe just for the sake of capturing a few extra fields of data!
Flexeworld offer a discreet service to help executives independently stay abreast of such a rapidly evolving world, and where needed we help to decipher the “techno-babble” and provide guidance on tech related acquisitions, implementation or HR acceptance of new technology.
Remember, you can have the best technology.. but if your staff dont use it as intended, then it's wasted.
