Innovations in technology are happening at a rapid and exciting pace. In your workplace, in your living room, down to the smartphone in your pocket, the technology is getting faster, smarter and more attractive to look at. Additionally, the industry is shifting. Many pieces of hardware that were once essentials in the modern office are becoming obsolete as technology is shifting into the cloud. This whole evolution can easily lead an organization to feel overwhelmed in terms of knowing what they should invest in and when.

This is where it becomes important to first discover the individual needs of your organization and then work with your integrator to apply the appropriate technology solution to address that need. There are a variety of ways to discover those needs, ultimately you need to first consider the main goals of your business and from there, the experience of your clients, the experience of your employees, the abilities of your office and the overall safety of your information and facility. How does your current technology either enhance each of these aspects of your business and how does it provide challenges? Taking an honest assessment of each of these points will naturally uncover areas that need to be addressed.

Once you’ve established your main areas of need, you’ll be adequately prepared for a consultation with your integrator where you can discuss your needs. Your integrator can discuss with you both the priority of your needs and the most efficient way to address them. This allows you to develop a long term technology plan, a roadmap that you and the fellow decision-makers of your organization can adhere to.

Lastly, if your position within your organization requires you to receive corporate approval before any decision being made, having these needs identified will greatly increase your chances of approval. Speaking to the main needs of your business will likely be at a higher level of importance for the leaders of your organization than the natural excitement of new technology. Basing your technology needs on the main goals for your business, your customer experience, your employee experience, and both the safety and overall abilities of your workplace will have a positive effect on every aspect of your organization.
