Is Your Technology Plan Ready For 2021?

Is Your Technology Plan Ready For 2021?

No matter the industry, all businesses should have a technology plan. Last year, many companies failed to make adjustments to their technology, and they ended up failing once the pandemic began. In this video, we discuss what a technology plan is and how you can create one for your organization.

There are many ways to create a technology plan. However, you usually begin by assessing the hardware and software your organization is currently using. You will want to ask yourself questions about how reliable your systems are, and if there are any issues at present. If there is, this is the time to fix them. Going into the new year with faulty technology will not help your business meet its goals.

Next, consider what your technology might be missing. Ask yourself questions about what systems you’d like to have but don’t already. If there are fundamental things missing, such as Office 365, you should consider investing in programs that would make your company more successful. Make sure to consider things like business continuity, improving security, and creating a solid remote workforce.

Studies have shown that companies with a technology plan are more profitable than those who do not currently have one. This is because they are prepared for the future, by making a plan for potential problems and taking steps to prevent these issues from occurring. They have created a game plan and will not be surprised when needing to adjust.

Last year, many businesses did not have a technology plan, and thus were blindsided when switching to a mostly online work environment as a result of the pandemic. Sadly, some of these companies did not survive. And they would have had a better chance if they would have prepared with a technology plan.

Having a technology plan will help your company meet its goals, attract clients, and become more secure. Your business will also be able to handle any issues that may come up in the following year, should your plan account for those things. For these reasons, we recommend that all companies create a technology plan for 2021.
