Why Investing in Technology Pays Off

Why are hospitals and medical establishments so proud of their medical practice software for all your needs? Why do restaurants and hotels never look back after spending thousands of dollars, sometimes tens of thousands, on a cutting-edge POS system? These organisations and businesses all have something in common: they’ve invested wisely in technology, and are enjoying the benefits.

It’s understandable when some are reluctant to fork out large sums of money when budgets are tightening, but more often than not, investment in the latest technology for your particular field is what can make the difference between going under and starting to get things back on track. Here’s why investing in technology pays off:

It Speeds Up Daily Work

In just about every type of job and workplace, there are menial tasks that take up employees’ time without offering much in the way of any benefit. For white collar workers, it could be sending perfunctory (but necessary) email replies to clients, for example. Investing in a more advanced customer service email response system doesn’t take a great deal to set up, but can save a great deal of time by automating standard responses, and can be programmed to send automated follow-up emails, too.

Now imagine in a setting like a hospital where huge amounts of time and energy are wasted as doctors await notes and test results from pathologists and allied healthcare workers, all of which has to be written up and delivered by hand or sent via administrative workers. Now imagine a more centralised and automated reporting system where results input by a pathologist are instantly shared to a doctor’s tablet where they can share it with patients.

It Boosts Security

Technology has made our safety much more guaranteed thanks to more advanced security cameras, motion sensors, laser systems, alarms and more. Investing in these sophisticated systems not only boosts security and safety, but helps businesses reduce other financial burdens such as insurance costs. When risks are lowered, so too are premiums.

Digital systems do, of course, come with their own list of safety concerns, but the more sophisticated they become, the fewer and fewer people are capable of breaking through them.

It Connects Team Member and Stakeholders More Effectively

Investing in communications technology helps team members, customers, executives and other stakeholders in a business more seamlessly connect with one another day to day. The recent experience of the COVID-19 pandemic has helped to prove just how viable remote working is in the modern age as our Internet communications software and hardware has reached a point where most people can now operate at near full capacity from just about anywhere.

Companies can also invest in systems for other particular communication and connection needs, such as large file sharing, workflow oversight, project management, and much more. These systems and services are almost entirely provided by third parties, and cost a monthly or annual fee, yet it’s invariably the most successful companies who invest in order to get the benefits.

It Widens Your Customer Base

Let’s say you’re running a brick-and-mortar retail store, and you decide to invest in an ecommerce platform to sell your goods online. Great news! Your market just went up from the local population of your town to the entire population of Australia and beyond! That’s a pretty good customer grab by any marketing standard! 

Yes, it takes money to build an effective ecommerce wing of your business, but when you’re doubling, tripling or even quadrupling your sales, not to mention the brand awareness you’re generating, that investment must quickly start to seem worthwhile!
