Business Essentials 101 – Flexible Working

Business Essentials 101 – Flexible Working

Times and technology are rapidly changing. With the adoption of new mobile, collaborative technologies and flexible delivery through cloud applications, organisations wanting to meet their business objectives need to stay in tune with the changing landscape. As workplaces become more flexible and communications more mobile, the concept of office is becoming more abstract. Limited connectivity and delayed response times are concerns of the past. It’s hard to compete with the simplicity of searching for a document name on your computer and seeing it within seconds.   Workplace flexibility is more than a “perk”   It’s a strategic approach that empowers employee to do their jobs more efficiently from anywhere without feeling “out of …

Is your digital transformation strategy up to scratch?

Is your digital transformation strategy up to scratch?

As crucial as physical documentation remains for some businesses, there’s no getting around the fact that digital transformation marches on unabated. In order to keep up with the modern operating environment, experts believe that shifting away from paper processes is more important than ever. “Reducing paper use has a tangible impact on business, from improved customer service to increased productivity,” says John Mancini, president of the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM)[1]. “Business-at-the-speed-of-paper simply isn’t compatible with the modern digital enterprise and while we can’t eliminate paper altogether, we can all be much smarter about using less.” With sentiments like that, smart organisations looking to transition to a more modern document strategy …

5 must-have innovations for your next printing device

5 must-have innovations for your next printing device

Policies designed to make life easier for small businesses across the nation were outlined by Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison in his Budget announcement speech last year. These were reduced business taxes and simplified stock trading rules, GST accounting and PAYG arrangements. Each are helpful initiatives, likely much appreciated by many Australian companies. The policy that’s making more of an immediate difference than any other, however, is the expansion of immediate tax deductibility for asset purchases costing less than $20,000. The  2015 policy was first put in place for businesses with annual turnover of up to $2 million, but the revamped 2016 version opened up to those with turnover up to $10 million. “The extension of the …

Reinvent your business by rethinking printing

Reinvent your business by rethinking printing

Even as the impact and reach of digitalisation continues to evolve, for most organisations, print remains key– and will continue to play an important role, at least for the foreseeable future. Given that printing is not going anywhere yet, the time is ripe to focus on making the entire process as efficient and effective as possible. Think about the network of printers and multifunction machines that stretches across virtually every office, and how much it typically costs a business to keep that network up and running. Other than the obvious financial costs, there are also a whole slew of impacts that might affect a business in negative ways. Loss of productivity, disruptions, waste …

Some people consider it blue-sky thinking, but as far as one particular development is concerned, the inherent potential is beginning to bear fruit. It’s cloud technology, and according to McKinsey & Company, it has the opportunity to disrupt the entire model on which many companies are based. There are plenty of potentially game-changing applications for cloud technology, but few of them are as comprehensive as Desktop as a Service (DaaS), the notion of accessing your entire computer operating system over the internet. Passing your back-end …

While there are many exciting and effective benefits that come with moving your business systems to the cloud, any new developments bring with them an accompanying set of concerns.
