By Danielle Skinner, Marketing Executive at Aspect IT

TECHNOLOGY and the way we use it is continually changing. Businesses should look to new technological trends to see if it can help their business save money, grow or to gain a competitive advantage.

For instance, fax machines are almost a thing of the past; although they are still in operation, they are slowly becoming an outdated piece of technology.  

Modernising your business allows you to take full advantage of the new tech and systems on the market. Our article today will give you three top ways in which SMEs can modernise their business. 

1. CRM systems: A business CRM system will allow you to efficiently manage your current and potential client base. It provides everyone in the business an overview of each customer, the ability to track their products and services and for your staff to keep up-to-date with recent customer contact.

Without a CRM system, your business could require more paper administration, and this can take up more time and could lead to mix ups among employees.

2. Sage Accounts Integration: Business software platforms can integrate with Sage Accounts to automate repetitive tasks and streamline business processes.

With the right person to develop the software, the overall outcome can save you time, money and most importantly, increase accuracy. 

The types of integration are endless. Sage Accounts can integrate with CRM systems, eCommerce websites and other pieces of software your business may use. 

3. App Development: Mobile apps are a technological opportunity for businesses. Hundreds of apps are developed every day.

If your competitors are not making the most of mobile apps, there may be an opportunity for your business to stand out to your client base and gain a competitive edge.

The next stage: If one these three types of developments could benefit your business, now is the time to start planning and researching what you want and how you want to do it.
