While January is a good time for business owners to implement new company strategies, it can also be the perfect occasion for these professionals to introduce new technology to their workers. After all, since the new year is a symbol of change, workers respond to new cutting-edge techniques as a sign that their business is interested in helping them reach their full potential.
But, while business owners may like the idea, many don’t where to start, as there have been a number of new high-tech solutions getting major media coverage in recent months. However, MoneyWatch’s Dave Johnson simplified this process in a January 5 article by suggesting a number of obsolete technologies that he feels employers should jettison quickly.
Topping Johnson’s list were landline phone systems. While capable, this traditional business phone system doesn’t offer the advanced features of the latest models. This may sound expensive to business owners who are looking at big spending cuts this year, but Johnson says that VoIP telephony systems, once installed, can become a cost-cutting mechanism the business can utilize to further its financial aims.
Similarly, filing cabinets were also mentioned in the report. While the bulky metal drawers that house essential paperwork may hold sentimental value, Johnson suggests that these documents are best stored online. And with cloud computing solutions available from many VoIP providers, this transition could allow business owners to access these files anywhere, at any time.
To make the switch, business owners are best advised to contact an experienced provider of VoIP business phones that can also offer consultation on cloud transitions. By doing this, owners can set a precedent for the new year that encourages growth and boosts their employees’ perception of the company.
