Some of the most successful companies in recent years have done so by buying innovative technology available in their industry. What does it take for your business to succeed? What’s new in business technology that can help you save time or organize your sales force into a more efficient and efficient machine?
A good example of a company that uses new and innovative technologies to solve complex business and financial problems is IBM. IBM has continually evolved and changed software and financial models to improve other companies’ businesses. They have stayed on top of the learning curve while others have reverted to best practices.
Many other companies have used technology, software and the Internet to evolve their business model. In retail, Wal-Mart is a great example of how a former entrepreneur, Sam Walton, harnessed technology to revolutionize his inventory ordering software to build one of the largest and richest retail stores in history. Others have followed in the US, namely Best Buy. Some in Canada, like Brick, have started to offer more ease of selection and convenience in online shopping. But what about your small business? Can the technology afford to evolve and compete? There are numerous programs available. Some interesting software technologies that are now available in the US in terms of intranet, cross communications, and software are evolving once again.
Once the example that many small businesses are now using is VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol), to help reduce their telecommunication costs and gain a competitive advantage in international calling and communication services. But there are others, some great concepts that are ahead of their time.
How about a piece of technology that is secure and can manage your entire sales force or business model? One that surpasses traditional CRM technology.
One company that is doing this successfully is http://www.mycompanytoolbox.com. The company has a complete and highly secure CRM solution that can be highly customized and private for your business, large or small. It can also be integrated with other software traditionally accepted in the company.
Another example of an innovative technology company providing innovative solutions is http://www.factor1.com. They provide a point of sale software solution that has been modified by Microsoft to provide futuristic point of sale systems that remain profitable for small business owners.
In short, there are numerous software technology programs available, but it’s usually the ones that are the most innovative or the ones that provide the most cost savings that last or are bought by the largest vendors. Now’s your chance to get a piece of that innovation to power your small business.
