Why a connected ecosystem is the best thing you can do to grow your business

Agile, integrated and automated. This is the aim of the game. It’s no secret that technology creates more efficiency within a business, so why so many businesses resisting the change?

Especially when it is one of the biggest drivers of growth in a modern business.

Let’s start with integration.

This, to Thrive, is one of the most important facets of our role as consultants. We want to ensure that every department, every software solution, every process and every system is integrated in a streamlined manner.

The reason we do this is because we know that when Systems and processes are integrated, not only is human error reduced but information becomes much more available which in turn means better decision-making.

An agile business, is a business that can respond to any hurdle.

We see first hand that when a business has an ecosystem in which every department, every bit of data and every process is interconnected, they are able to respond to the unexpected within a fraction of the time of a business who does not have these processes in place.

This comes down to agility. When has having less information been a competitive advantage? At any point you want to be able to extract crucial information from your business and make meaningful decisions.

This is the agile approach. Information when and how you need it.

An automated business is a profitable business

We hear so much about the effects of automation. Sometimes it’s portrayed as this big scary monster, but in reality it’s the facilitator of being able to achieve more by doing less.

Many businesses don’t understand just how much they can automate and become more profitable. Every business should audit their processes within their business and identify how technology can help make that process run more smoothly.

Ultimately humans make more errors then computers., You can reduce human related error which contributes to the bigger picture all making you more profitable.

How do we embrace the ecosystem?

With growth and digital transformation being the top business priorities for CIOs of mid-sized enterprises, ecosystem platforms are now key to achieving sustainable business growth, according to Gartner.

The first step is to look at your goals? What are your motivations for wanting to create a business that is fully integrated, agile and automated?

It may sound like a silly question, but this is something that businesses need to really consider and push down deep into the issue. As consultants, we can help you strategise, implement and manage a system but ultimately figuring out your goals is something we need to work with you on from the very start.
