How small businesses can make use of big data

How small businesses can make use of big data

Big data has helped large organisations from governments and airlines to global logistics firms solve their most pressing issues, but the same cannot be said for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In fact, many SMEs have similar big data needs and are increasingly aware of the benefits of using big data to drive faster and more accurate decisions. So, what’s stopping SMEs from taking advantage of big data? The lack of expertise and seemingly complex interfaces of analytics software was one factor. That’s on top of the time and effort required to extract, transform and load large amounts of data from multiple sources into computer systems, before presenting the data visually. Today, with …

How to Leverage Powerful Partnerships to Promote Scale

How to Leverage Powerful Partnerships to Promote Scale

In today’s increasingly complex business landscape, customer needs evolve so rapidly that it may be sensible to align with other firms with the expertise, rather than building such capacities internally. This is especially the case for SMBs that rarely have the time or resources to expand into new core competencies—or even the appetite for risk that such investments entail. What this means, however, is that the scalability of any business becomes increasingly dependent on the quality of its partnerships. As a business expands to meet the growing demands of its customers, it needs to ensure that the partners that constitute vital elements of its value chain can match its expansion and the rate of its growth. Scalability …

Using Print Management reporting and analysis to cut costs

Using Print Management reporting and analysis to cut costs

For the majority of SMBs, office printing is an integral business function with costs that can quickly spiral out of hand. Whether it’s to produce mailers for customer loyalty programs, reports for weekly management meetings, or memos for employee policy updates, businesses still need to print documents even if they’re operating in a clearly digital age. However, just like virtually every business function today, office printing has become enormously complex, and as a consequence, surprisingly expensive. With the number of print outputs, printing equipment, printing software, and printing platforms growing exponentially, SMBs are scrambling to manage a variety of issues that have an impact on cost:  device usage, equipment maintenance, staff training, paper …

The right office printing and document technology can help keep a lid on costs and boost the productivity of staff. Read on to find out how costs can be controlled and productivity boosted!
