Organisations across the country are seeking broad productivity improvements across the business to support growth without increasing their staff costs. Innovations through new technology can often be used to support this need, however it is critical that the IT service delivery and business requirements are fully aligned to ensure the outcomes are achieved. Truly independent advice is rare and vendors with a clear conflict of interest are difficult to trust. Beyond Technology’s dual qualified consultants are ideally placed to understand both the business opportunity provided by new technologies and the technical logistics of ensuring that these technologies are deployed in an appropriate manner.
Beyond Technology has helped many organisations improve business efficiencies through several key means. The use of appropriately business aligned technology should automate workflow, reduce manual administration tasks & eliminate duplication, improve business intelligence, and improve team communication and collaboration. These technology led initiatives can be facilitated through several alternative approaches.
