Could Technology Be The Best Employee You Never Had?
With new software vendors, apps and add-ons being created every single day, it can be easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed when trying to stay up to date...
And the response to this overwhelm is usually one where instead of taking the time to look at the different options out there, you carry on doing things like you always have done.
If it isn’t broken, why fix it, right?
But ultimately, this approach is an expensive one in the long-term costing you both time and money.
So, what’s the alternative?
How do you find the time and energy to browse through the plethora of tech out there and decide what’s right for you?
Well according to Trent McLaren, Head of Accounting at Practice Ignition, he believes that technology should be viewed as a full-time employee.
You can see my full interview with Trent ahead of his session at the Progressive Practice Summit below where he discusses this concept in more detail:
You have to shift your mindset and ask yourself who is more effective at completing this task; is it your team, or is it the technology?
This is not about replacing humans with robots. It’s about improving efficiency and freeing up time for your team to focus on doing things that technology can't do, like having meaningful conversations with clients and delivering exceptional client service.
Once you start to appreciate where your employees fall short and where technology can improve and speed up processes, it can quite easily become the best employee you’ve never had.
When you register for the Progressive Practice Summit and attend Trent’s session, you will:
