Business agility

Business agility

Become a more fluid, agile organisation.

In today’s environment, opportunities for new business or customers must be seized, and if you can’t react quickly, the chances are your competitors will.

Being an agile business lets you make decisions faster, spot and react to emerging market shifts and better engage with your customers. But becoming agile and responsive can be a challenge in itself.  You must have the IT and technology to support your people – giving them always-on access to the information and services they need.

Learn to be agile.

We work with you to consider the following questions:

  • When do people work?
  • Where do people work?
  • What do they do?
  • How do they do it?

Then we help you to supply the right services and technology to match what work your people do and where they need to do it. The barriers to agility are often not about technology change, but rather about cultural change.

You need to replace artificial measures of success, such as time and attendance, with a focus on results and performance instead. Trusting your people to get on with the job and reducing the pressure to be in the office and to be “seen to be busy” can reap dividends.

Become more fluid with the cloud.

Cloud-based services can deliver a new level of flexibility that helps your business become more nimble. Services in the cloud are typically much faster to deploy than on-premises systems. They also avoid many of the costs and complexities of upgrading or replacing existing hardware and software.

You also can unlock cost saving on office space, equipment, power and property costs; streamline business processes to be more efficient and better scale your resources to meet demand.

Better, quicker decisions.

A good decision is an informed decision. By arming your people with a range of tools which help them intuitively communicate and collaborate, they can quickly get the right people together to make the right decisions. This might be the ability to rapidly consulting with a technical expert on IM to while on the phone to a customer or to hold a virtual video meeting each month between remote sales teams to save on excess travel.

More engaged employees.

Your people recognise that flexible working makes them more productive and showing trust breeds loyalty and drives job satisfaction. More people working from home or remotely also eliminates unnecessary travel (which can be a huge saving in time and money) and cuts CO2 emissions.
