Invest in the future

Invest in the future

The world is currently paralyzed. COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down. Many use the time to reflect on the future. A future where the situation has come under control and where normalcy returns.

But how do you secure your business for the future, so that you can handle a similar situation again? For the life that awaits us, will probably look different. How do you invest in the future?

By Matthijn Hoogenboom, Sales Director, MicroPartner

The present must be digital

There is no doubt that the companies that perform well now and, as a result, will perform well in the future, are those that are digitally equipped. Companies that have invested in IT. Companies that right now can offer their employees a home-based workplace and / or have implemented e-commerce. For many companies, the current situation means that everything is turned upside down. There is a need for a colossal change for corporate cultures, for example in relation to working from home and having work and customer meetings in other ways than face-to-face.

At MicroPartner, we have also had to adjust our habits. For example, we have just held our first training day remote. Fortunately, our customers were also involved in thinking new and breaking habits. The technique in Microsoft Teams as well as readiness for change both with ourselves and our customer resulted in the session working beyond all expectations.

The time of opportunity

With most challenges comes opportunities as well. As a result, the current situation is an obvious opportunity to examine your company and invest in IT solutions and systems.

We are currently experiencing that some of our customers are investing in the future, for example by moving their systems to the cloud, implementing new processes / features in CRM and ERP systems, and remote training in the use of CRM / ERP.

Invest in the future

Consequently, we have gathered a few considerations, that can help you along the way:

  • Can we work safely from home?

  • Can we make better use of our time when working from home?

  • How do we ensure that personal relationships are both maintained and established when we work remotely?

  • Can more meetings be held online?

  • Do our CRM and ERP systems support our business processes - and our future business?

  • Are our processes efficient - and if not, do we need change management?

  • Can we implement e-commerce?

  • Can IoT, machine learning and AI help us?

  • Do we have the right communication platforms?

It is about securing the company’s future – and it may be right now that you have the time to invest in the future. If you need inspiration for what you can do in your company, you are very welcome to contact us.
