04 Oct Eliminating the Pains of Dated Technology
Businesses face many external challenges such as increased competition for funding, economic shifts creating more or less demand for products/services, and shifts in compliance with changing government regulations. Compounding those external challenges with internal challenges caused by inefficient processes and outdated technology is counter-productive. In this guide, we discuss eliminating the pains of dated technology.

Lack of process automation and organization efficiency
One of the first challenges business leaders should seek to eliminate are time-consuming manual data entry processes and related human errors. Wherever there is repetitive manual data entry, there are human errors. No matter how focused your team may be, there will always be room for error. By automating repetitive and routine processes, you free up time for your staff to take on more productive tasks, boost operational efficiency, your team’s confidence, and morale. Nobody enjoys spending hours manually entering data, only to go back and have to correct errors. Automation also improves the integrity of your data, allowing you to make more accurate decisions.
Manual, time-consuming reporting
Speaking of decisions, making today’s decisions on yesterday’s data can set you back. Many businesses spend hours manually compiling reports of excel sheets. An ERP solution that offers all your standard reports on-demand allows you to make faster, more reliable decisions based on current data. Stay a step ahead of your competitors and get a birds-eye-view through a system that integrates your data into a central database empowering you to enjoy a 360 view that you would otherwise not have had from multiple spreadsheets or disparate systems.
Lack of real-time visibility into key metrics and performance
Beyond reporting, a modern business requires a real-time view of all KPIs through visualized dashboards that enable business leaders to see and interpret the data in a more digestible manner. This enables businesses to spot opportunities to boost productivity, but most importantly, eliminate bottlenecks more rapidly. It’s 2021, and businesses no longer have the luxury of dragging their feet in spotting problematic areas of their businesses. Speed and agility are mandatory for the survival of every business operating in the digital economy.
