Posted on: January 28th, 2019 by jiml | No Comments

It is a new year!  We hope that everyone is as excited for 2019 as we are here at Colden Company.  The new year often brings new resolutions both personally and professionally.  I am going to exercise more in 2019, I promise!  On the professional side, everyone wants to take steps to improve at work and improve business.  We have all heard the expression that the definition of insanity is doing things the same way and expecting different results.  Why not try something that is proven to make businesses more successful?  Become a digital leader in your field. According to the Harvard Business Review, companies that embrace technology outperform those that lag behind by a considerable margin. There are several technology areas that leaders in their respective verticals are taking advantage of.

  • Mobility

We have talked extensively about the statistics showing that mobile devices are outselling traditional desktops as more and more of the workforce is going mobile. Get that data back and forth from the field in a more timely and accurate way.

  • Collaboration

The ability to get information to all of your team quickly and accurately is a competitive advantage. Companies that have mastered this can make decisions more quickly and with the proper input are more nimbly than its competitors.

  • Cloud

Information in the cloud is more easily accessible in many cases to those require it. Cloud solutions are often more scalable (both up and down) allowing businesses to be flexible.

  • Security

If your business is not up to date on data security, your business is at risk.  The threat of attacks like Business Email Compromise attacks are real and can devastate your business. Successful businesses are taking steps to protect themselves.


Being a digital leader is not easy. It requires a commitment of both effort and time. Time is not something that most people have an excess of these days. Choosing the right partners can go a long way to making sure you have the right information. We recommend having a technology team that consists of key personnel inside your organization and trusted technology advisers that can offer insights into technology solutions that might fit your business needs. Your business leaders should drive the conversation. They know the industry and the business and the technology advisors role is to compliment the vision with the right technology.
