Intelligently Improving Technology

This is where tech acceleration can come to the rescue. We define it as intelligently improving business technology that employees rely on in a way that considers the future and helps businesses achieve long-term goals.

As the speed of business technology innovation continues to accelerate businesses must keep up with these developments to avoid being left behind by competitors and customers. For small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), keeping up with this rapid pace is not just an option but a necessity for survival and growth. In this blog, we’ll delve into the myriad benefits of staying current with technology and explore how JK Technology Solutions can be your trusted partner in this journey towards competitiveness and success.

Why keeping up with evolving technologies is critical include:

  • Bringing together all of the necessary tools that integrate saves time and effort while increasing overall efficiency.
  • You can boost productivity by improving the employee experience with streamlined technology and processes.
  • It is possible to improve security by removing obsolete technologies that no longer receive critical security upgrades.


Have An Effective Technology Acceleration Plan

The speed of technology advancements and its adoption by businesses has increased at a breakneck pace since the onset of pandemic restrictions. These fast choices and implementations helped many organizations remain relatively unscathed by utilizing remote working and other collaborative solutions. However, now that we’ve had time to adapt to the “new normal,” it’s clear that brisk change isn’t always beneficial to the long-term success of an organization.

These technology upgrades helped SMBs stay in business during the chaotic year that was 2020, they also resulted in several hiccups that ranged from integration challenges to limited long-term value. That’s why the time is ripe to prepare for the future by adopting smart tech acceleration. This requires a thorough examination and assessment to evaluate whether your present systems are advanced and integrated enough to support your business objectives over the next five to 10 years, and not just the present.

Evaluate your previous technology investments

Examine your technology investments from the previous years and identify where you need improvements. It’s critical to assess whether prior investments have served your long-term vision/goals. Only then will you be able to determine whether your acceleration is on the right track or not.


What is the status of your current tech environment? Is it meeting your expectations?  Take a look at what other firms may be doing differently to achieve better results. Evaluate changes you can make to improve your organization’s performance to align it closer to your vision. The metric used to monitor the progress of your tech acceleration initiative should consider levels of cybersecurity, customer experience, employee experience, technology integration across the organization, backups, compliance and so on.

Think about the total experience (TX)

The total experience can be defined as a blend of customer and employee experiences (CX and EX). By breaking down silos and integrating technology with employees, customers and users, total experience improves the overall experience. It focuses on addressing customer/employee needs to produce better long-term and meaningful business outcomes. Experts estimate that by 2026, 60% of large enterprises will use total experience (TX) to transform their business models in order to achieve world-class customer and employee advocacy levels.

Committing to integration

Individually outstanding solutions that don’t integrate (or that your company doesn’t commit to integrating) will not serve you in the long run or help you scale. Systematic integration unifies the customer and employee experience, reducing the risk of error, increasing efficiency and providing the opportunity to automate repetitive operations, among other benefits.

Collaborate for success

If your organization doesn’t invest in smart tech acceleration, your competition could overtake you in the market. Say goodbye to short-term fixes that aren’t helping you achieve your goals and upgrade your IT ecosystem to help you achieve greater productivity and operational success for the long term.

Staying Ahead: The Crucial Role of Technology in Small and Medium Businesses

In today’s fast-paced world, technology evolves at breakneck speed, revolutionizing the way businesses operate.

In today’s digital age, technology is not just a tool but a strategic enabler that can propel SMEs to new heights of success. By embracing technological innovation, SMEs can enhance efficiency, improve customer experience, gain a competitive edge, and unlock new opportunities for growth.

The Need for Technological Agility in SMEs

Gone are the days when technological advancements were the domain of large corporations with hefty budgets. In today’s landscape, SMEs that fail to adapt risk falling behind, losing customers, and ultimately, fading into obscurity. Here’s why staying abreast of technological trends is indispensable for small and medium businesses:

Enhanced Efficiency and Productivity

Technology streamlines processes, automates repetitive tasks, and boosts overall efficiency. Cloud computing, for instance, enables SMEs to access data and applications from anywhere, facilitating remote work and collaboration. With the right tools in place, businesses can accomplish more in less time, allowing them to focus on core activities and deliver superior value to customers.

Improved Customer Experience

In an era where customer experience reigns supreme, technology plays a pivotal role in meeting and exceeding customer expectations. From personalized marketing campaigns to seamless online transactions and responsive customer support systems, technology empowers SMEs to create memorable experiences that foster loyalty and drive repeat business.

Competitive Advantage

In today’s hyper-competitive market, innovation is the key to staying ahead of the curve. By embracing cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT), SMEs can gain valuable insights, anticipate market trends, and innovate their products and services to meet evolving customer needs. This proactive approach not only differentiates them from competitors but also positions them as industry leaders.

Scalability and Flexibility

Technology provides SMEs with the scalability and flexibility needed to adapt to changing market conditions and seize growth opportunities. Whether it’s scaling up infrastructure to accommodate increased demand or pivoting business models in response to emerging trends, technology empowers businesses to stay agile and resilient in the face of uncertainty.

Cost Savings

Contrary to popular belief, investing in technology can actually result in significant cost savings for SMEs in the long run. By automating manual processes, reducing errors, and optimizing resource allocation, technology helps minimize operational costs and maximize profitability. Moreover, cloud-based solutions eliminate the need for expensive hardware and maintenance, allowing businesses to reallocate resources to strategic initiatives.
