What Businesses Should be Striving For in 2023

Published January 16, 2023

There’s a lot to consider when thinking about the future of your business and how to be as efficient as possible without cutting back on your cybersecurity. We have put together some of our top recommendations to make sure your business is as protected and well organised as possible, whilst progressing with the ever changing technology.

Break free from paper and data entry and go paperless

Companies should be striving to go paperless for 2023, and we can help you with software like DocuWare. Break free from paper and data entry and go paperless – it’s easier than you think! Did you know that 50% of a business’s waste is composed of paper, and that paper accounts for around 26% of total waste at landfills? And that the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper each year, with 6,800 of the 10,000 sheets used being wasted?

Misfiling, loss, and duplication are all still common concerns with paper files that aren’t stored in the most efficient way possible. By using a document management system, we will digitise and secure your information to flow effortlessly between your key decision makers and staff – anywhere, on any device, at any time.

An average employee wastes 3.5 hours a week searching but not finding documents. DocuWare eradicates all these problems by storing your digital documents in one central and secure location. It’s faster, more transparent, and more efficient than traditional paper-based methods.

With more companies looking to ‘go green’, reduce the paper flow through the business and improve processes, our recommendation for all businesses in 2023 would be a document management solution.

Protect your business from cyber attacks

Smartphones, computers, and the internet are now such a fundamental part of modern life that it’s difficult to imagine how we’d function without them. From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it’s more important than ever to take steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices. With this thought in mind, everyone should place cyber security at the forefront and not as an afterthought, due to this increased exposure to risks such as ransomware, supply chain security, email phishing and hybrid home working.

Did you know that human error is the single most common cause of an IT security breach? While malware and computer viruses remain an everyday threat, well-informed staff can be the difference in keeping your business safe from exposure to dangerous malware and even financial loss. We offer a downloadable office cyber security checklist to make sure you’re doing all you can to keep your information safe, download it here.

More importantly, we have a complete cyber security stack to enhance all layers of the cyber security required. Managed cyber security services are an intelligent investment for your business. The financial implications of a cyber attack are severe and therefore the cost of implementing effective cyber security solutions will be far less than the cost of a successful breach.

Use the power platform to speed up processes within your business

Are you aware that having a Microsoft 365 licence allows us to build bespoke apps that fit your business and will speed up processes within your business? Here at React, we can build your very own application using Power Apps. It has the potential to decrease the amount of paper flowing, speed up processes and make the business more efficient.

Power Apps uses low-code yet effective app development, making it easy for any business to utilise apps for their teams and customers. It can connect to your data sources such as MailChimp, Microsoft 365 and even your internal databases. Using a single, cost-effective platform that’s robust and scales to your growth saves your business money, enables growth, ensures data integrity and makes decisions easy.

We worked with Debach Enterprises to build and support an app using Power Apps, “since we’ve had the mobile app running across the business, we’ve noticed a 90% improvement in data entry, purely because nobody is manually entering data so errors are a lot fewer. We also have the added bonus of being able to capture those images that could well help with any future insurance claims with any goods leaving the warehouse damaged.”

There are lots of business goal predictions for 2023, accelerated digital transformation, increased sustainability, increased efficiency in systems, and we can help your business thrive in all areas. We stay at the forefront of innovation in order to keep businesses pushing forward and making sure IT assists our clients in achieving their business goals.
