Technology is ever-evolving. Just when you think you have the latest phone or laptop, a newer one appears on the market. A little over 25 years ago, we didn’t know much about the internet, email was non-existent and a computer was a rare sight in South Africa. Today, however, terms like “cloud computing”, “growth hacking” and “data mining” are part of our everyday vocabulary.
Over the last couple of years, technology has boomed, and it’s benefiting businesses in many ways. Here are some of the tools that businesses can’t do without:
Mobile solutions have made it so easy to to do business on-the-go. Gone are the days of spending an entire day in the office! Now you can get more out of your day with the right applications – and there are so many to choose from. You can create a website, read your emails, connect with potential clients and so much more – from almost anywhere.
With cloud computing, businesses are now able to move some of their operations to third-party servers. This means no downtime, work is always available and you can share documents with the click of a button.
Thanks to technology, we are now more connected than ever! These days there are so many ways to connect; from social media and email to chat platforms and call apps. Being connected means that you have a bigger audience and can network hassle-free.
