Staying Current with Technology

Posted on: May 28th, 2015 by jiml | No Comments

“If you are running your business the same way you were a few years ago, you are not staying the same, you are falling behind.” The above is a saying we often repeat here at Colden Company. Rest assured your competition is not staying the same, so we encourage you to take a look at your operations and ask yourself if you are leading the competition or if you are staying stagnant. The future belongs to those who continually improve and advance.

Utilizing technology is a way your business can stay ahead, whether it be from the proper ERP system, perhaps a mobile solution to improve efficiency, or it could simply be having the right equipment (in house or in the cloud) that can run your operations efficiently. Old systems can be a silent drain on productivity. To prove the point, we recently completed an infrastructure overhaul for a customer and shortly after completion, our customer reported that employees were coming to them looking for more to do since the efficiencies gained from the upgrade allowed them to complete their normal day to day tasks more quickly.

User education is also an area where efficiencies can be gained and is often overlooked. Are your employees well trained on the systems you have in place? Often times application training can help make a person more productive at their job. On the technology side, blogs like this one can help keep you abreast of what is out there. Not every new technology is a good fit for every business. Knowing your options is important for every business.

Colden Company is also in the process of rolling out “Colden Company College”. Visit our media page at www.coldencompany.com/coldentv and see the links on the right side of the page. There you will find short videos that may help improve productivity at your place of business. Videos provide training on such things as Office 2013, Windows 8 and more. We will be including more topics over time.

Did one of your employees just get a new PC with Office 2013 on it? Have them watch a short video on the enhancements to make them more productive. Just get a Windows 8 PC? Watch a video to show you some of the features. These videos are free for you to use for your use and is another way in which Colden Company helps our customers to stay ahead of the competition. Also included is a short video on information security. We would advise all users to watch this video as a reminder of the dangers of the Internet as well as give them some tools to help combat those threats.

Education is something we are committed to here not only for ourselves with continued technical training for our staff, but also for our customers as well. Technology can be a great tool to stay ahead of the curve when implemented properly. That is why we are continually advancing our skills sets and the tools that we use. We are continually improving our services, especially those that use automation (think low or no cost to you), to help keep your networks running optimally. After all, we believe what say: “If you are running your business the same way you were a few years ago, you are not staying the same, you are falling behind”.
