In the last 10 years, we have been witnessing a massive uptake in technological advancements and as a result, our expectations have naturally gone up. We update our mobile phones every two to three years and upgrade our PCs every time a newer model comes out. Thanks to technology, businesses can save time and boost productivity by eliminating unnecessary tasks. Here are 5 tech tips to make your business more profitable and productive.
Any professional business depends on customer projects and budget management. Whether you charge a fixed price or by the hour, your costs are based on the time people spend on doing their work, so it is essential that you review and track your company’s budget. Accurate budgeting depends on good time keeping, which itself can be a strenuous task. An easy way to keep things on track is to connect timesheets to project budgets. This way, you will be able to immediately take steps whenever a project is getting out of hand.

When closing a deal, you may think of a few steps to finalise that contract. By automating your data entry, you will gain the necessary skills to automate your sales follow-ups. As some tasks such as emailing potential clients or your sales team can be automated, you may easily create a reminder task. This will allow you to pay better attention to your prospective clients with the help of a follow-up list.
We all know how frustrating it can be to try to stay in the loop on customer correspondence. The CRM is rarely completely updated about a client’s file. In fact, some employees won’t even enter every detail of their client interaction into the computer system. What you really need in this case is cloud-based business software that can track all the emails that are exchanged between your staff and clients. These emails are stored in a central location where everyone in your company can have access to them. An automated client correspondence is centrally available to all team members in order to provide the best possible customer service.
Look to the future
Online marketers are increasingly depending on data and programmers who can customise their messages. Programmatic marketing is one such practice that delivers target messages to clients. Although this is a relatively new strategy in the world of digital marketing, it has caught the attention of small and large businesses. This is because marketers can now find ways to reach their consumers across multiple devices and channels. Keeping track of your messages through a smartphone and tablet is no longer a technological challenge. There are many opportunities to target your audience more precisely than ever before. As marketers have access to so much data about their consumer trends, the devices they use, the web pages they visit, and the social media sites they sign up on, it is no wonder that marketers can target messages that are specifically catered to their audience.
