When a technology company obtains a client, they need to know what made the client seek them out. This will help the technology company with many of the relationship tests they must pass to obtain this new client. It will ensure that they are best able to work with them and that the client is not having their time wasted.
However, it’s important to realize that there is always more than one reason a client needs new technology. In some cases, they might not even know all of the things that they could benefit from. If this sounds odd coming from a technology company, it’s because we’re letting you in on one of our secrets. Here are five things we’ve found that many of our clients are looking for both directly and without their knowledge.
Most everyone wants life to be as simple as possible. Since most of your daily life is work, it would make sense to have that simplified as well. Why should you have to open five applications to check on your business when you could do everything from one place?
A technology company works to make their client’s job as simple as possible so that their client can have more time to do what makes them money. When you go to a technology company, make sure to think about all of the things that could be simplified with technology in your business.
In the same way that clients often look for simple solutions to overseeing their business, they usually love when we can simplify their communication process. Sometimes there are remote companies or companies with a spread out task force. Having the ability to send messages with all the correct information easily can save time and money.
Technology companies like Skype can work great for small businesses; however, a large company can have issues talking through a platform like this. At the same time, email is rather slow and outdated compared to the ability to instant message employees. Think about your messaging needs when you talk to a technology company. A good company can either give you a solution or point you in the right direction.
Gone are the days that require you to be in the office to get things done. In today’s modern work world, you can work from your bed with the right technology. At the same time, you should not have to call and visit locations to see how they are doing. As a technology group in the oil field, we see this all too often.
It’s essential to enable a team to look in on the devices, location, employees, and data from wherever they are in the world. This remote connection can save time and allow for employees to make money-saving changes right when something happens. When you go to a technology company, think about your needs and all the things that you could connect to form a remote business.
Who wants to have to send computer-generated reports every week manually? If you have a program that sends you reports, why not make it automatically send the reports to everyone that will need them. This is just a small example of how powerful automation can be.
When you go to a technology company, think about all the things that you don’t need people to do. If your technology company can make those tasks automated then imagine how much more time your employees would have to work on growing your business.
Lastly, clients that are looking for a technology company should think about how they can make better decisions. Would a dashboard monitoring all the output levels of your rigs and factory lines enable you to make better decisions?
If the answer is yes, then you are not alone. Many people go to technology companies to enable their leaders to make better decisions. Think about everything that you would like to see at a glance and how that would impact your ability to make good choices for your company. A technology company can custom build or offer you a solution to these problems and help you grow your business through good decision making.
