Five business benefits of working with a remote technology partner
In a world where technology is constantly evolving, it’s highly beneficial to implement adaptive technology in your business.
Whether it’s sales, marketing, finance, and everything in between, having dedicated technology can truly transform your business’ systems and streamline internal processes.
You may be struggling to keep up with ongoing technology trends or find that your team is using up a lot of resources on manual tasks.
Business owners can be reluctant to introduce remote partners because they might think that having in-house tech teams is a more efficient way to do business.
Each and every business has its own unique way of operating and the ClearSky Logic team understands that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why we’ve put together this blog to showcase the main benefits of partnering with us for technology requirements.
First up, we’re going to delve into what a technology department actually entails.
What is a technology department?
It’s a broad term, but generally speaking, the high-level responsibilities of a technology department include:
- Automation of systems and processes
- Network monitoring, management, and security
- Software creation and/or implementation
- Data backup and recovery
- Initialising authentication software
- Systems operation and support services
Putting a focus on technology in your business can help to ensure seamless operations across the whole organisation, including departments, hierarchies, and roles within the company.
Benefit one: Seamless flow of service
As technology grows, it’s becoming increasingly complex. Software management is becoming notably more challenging.
Pay-to-play software brings with it an abundance of restrictions. What might work for one business might not work for yours. Often, ready-made software can cause more friction in business due to time spent on manipulating it to suit your business needs.
Having a remote technology partner, like ClearSky Logic, can help you to plan and build bespoke software that is uniquely tailored to your business needs and requirements.
Software that’s dedicated to your business can help to encourage a continuous flow of functionality and uninterrupted service.
Can you imagine having software that automates time-consuming manual tasks? How would your business change if you had your best people doing difficult work instead of treading water with manual tasks? From how you engage with your customers to how your systems integrate, we can help you get it right.
Benefit two: Reduce your costs
The average salary of a Chief Technology Officer in Edinburgh is £105,000+ per year. Not forgetting the cost of recruitment, training, and equipment.
When you decide to partner with a remote technology company, such as ClearSky Logic, you’re opening your business up to a team of professional experts who can help your business grow at a fraction of the cost.
Having these expanded resources can be highly beneficial to the growth and development of your business. Although large corporations often have the necessary resources to maintain cutting edge technologies, smaller companies generally don’t. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have them.
This advantage plays out in a number of ways, such as increased productivity, efficiency, and business evolution.
Benefit three: Increased expertise
As technology continues to grow, it can be difficult for small and medium businesses to stay ahead of technology trends.
Ongoing training. Decreased motivation. Increasing costs.
These are just a few of the reasons why having your technology systems planned in-house can be problematic.
A dedicated tech partner harbours industry-related knowledge, including security and compliance expertise. With this knowledge, they can better ascertain and avoid inherent risks.
In the world of account data protection, there’s no such thing as being too safe. Take a look at the biggest data hacks from 2019.
Businesses that try to implement and maintain all their technology needs themselves often have to dedicate substantial time to research, development, and implementation. This results in higher costs and more time.
By taking longer to bring new products to the market, your business might lose its competitive advantage and suffer against companies who are moving faster.
The solution? A dedicated technology partner that can guide you through the opportunities, gaps, and risks of the technology in your business. Sound interesting? Chat to the ClearSky Logic team.
Benefit four: Focus on your big goals
Your team’s time is precious. They shouldn’t be focusing on less important things and time-consuming low-impact goals.
You may believe that you're saving money by keeping your technology responsibilities in-house. By doing this, it's likely that your employees are unable to focus on their primary roles due to distraction by tech and software issues - resulting in reduced productivity.
By implementing a technology partner in your business, you free up your team’s time to focus on big-picture goals, provide a service that exceeds customer expectations, and the general day-to-day running of the business to work towards the main goals.
Many of our previous clients have chosen to work with us for peace of mind. Knowing that they’re able to focus on running their business rather than managing technology constraints.
Benefit five: Adopt the latest technologies
You’re now familiar with the fact that the technology landscape is a rapidly changing environment and technology changes at a fast pace.
Every business owner likely feels there aren’t enough hours in the day to tackle all the challenges. Having to divide your can limit your potential. Outsourcing allows employees to stay focused on what they are skilled at, trained for, and paid to do.
A partnership with ClearSky Logic means that you’ll always have the latest technology available to you. Technology is what we do, so we have advanced knowledge and expertise available to excel your business to the next stage.
