Is your technology stack compatible, up-to-date and cost effective?
Technology stacks are extremely important for a business to run smoothly and efficiently. When building a web or a mobile application for your business, however big or small, a set of tools, framework and a combination of programming languages is required. These tech stacks are generally divided into two sides, the server side and the client side.
Optimising the right technology stack for your business helps you understand the workflow from the perspective of your employees as well as your clients and customers, that is, both the back-end workflow and the front-end workflow. It becomes easier to visualise and address the gaps in the processes and the deviation from ideal processes.
Technology in application development decides how the app works currently and its capability to address future changes. For example, it is important to know, if in the future you would need more storage for the files and shift from local file storage to cloud file storage.
The scalability of your product is also influenced by your tech stack. It is important to decide to know the strengths and weaknesses of your technology stack so that in the future, you are saved from investing large amounts of money to completely change your tech stack.

Do you use documents and spreadsheets to track and run your business?
Using spreadsheets to track and run your business processes like order tracking, finances and maintaining databases is a cheap and easy way during the early stages of the company. However, when the business grows, looking for data in spreadsheets can be overwhelming.
Using documents and spreadsheets to run your business have both advantages and drawbacks.
Some advantages are:
- Spreadsheets and documents are easy to use and no intensive training is required to understand how to use them.
- They can be integrated with software and are a very convenient way to organise data.
- They can perform complex calculations without having the user enter the formulae repeatedly.
Some disadvantages are:
- Large amounts of data can be overwhelming to view and it is a time consuming process to translate this data into reports.
- It becomes difficult to identify and correct mistakes as data is not backed up automatically and once updated the original data can’t be retrieved.
- Spreadsheets and documents are not mobile friendly, especially when a large amount of data is involved.
- Entering data into spreadsheets and documents is extremely time consuming and inattentiveness while doing so can lead to errors that can cost the business a fortune.
Spreadsheets are sometimes not the best option to run a business but in many cases it is required to streamline the workflow.

Do you spend a significant amount of time teaching staff how to use multiple programs?
It is extremely important to train your employees and keep them up to date with all the technologies your business uses. But sometimes, due to many different reasons, a significant amount of time is spent on training staff, the valuable time which could have been used more productively.
If your business processes use a lot of complex technologies which expect you to enter details manually, the time taken to train employees is more. This not only affects employee productivity but also increases the probability of errors.
Moreover, not having an up to date tech stack means that employees need to work around the problems, that means extra training is required.
Also when there a number of different software are involved, the staff is required to be trained to use them all.

We also help you keep you tech stacks and apps up to date which will in turn make your staff more productive and save your business a lot of precious time.
Technology has both tangible and intangible benefits when incorporated with business processes.

But choosing the right technology tailoring to your requirements is extremely important for your organisation to function smoothly.
