How can a business coach use technology to help me grow my business?

Small businesses need to rely on technology in the day to day running of their business. And this does not only mean having internet and a computer, but taking advantage of the cloud based storage and software to make their companies more streamline and work even when the business owner does not. It can be tough to keep up though.

Tech can help you gain competitive advantage; communicate better and faster with clients, suppliers and employees; save time and improve efficiency; improve business performance by using analysis reporting to make decisions etc.

Business coaches have the skills needed to successfully help you deploy new technology, manage integrations, and consult on the best options for your unique situation to run or even scale your business.

Lets look at some popular examples of tech innovation in the past couple of years :

  1. Cloud based accounting and payroll software – these softwares have made it increasingly easy for business owners to manage their finances and employee costs themselves, with little to no assistance from bookkeepers and payroll administrators, only needing assistance from accountants at year end.
  2. Enhanced data analysis – even the most basic accounting software packages offer data analysis and reports with easy to read dashboards. Businesses will succeed or fail based on their ability not only to gather data, but to organize and use it in ways that lead to actionable goals.
  3. VOIP technology – You can now phone anywhere in the world and be charged low rates. You can employ a virtual assistant to answer your phones and take messages without them having to be in your office.
  4. CRM software – Manage your clients information and tasks your way. Practically every industry has their own software to accommodate for the streamlining of your business relationships. Very often these systems integrate with your accounting software, to further ease the administration process.
  5. Mobile payment – new mobile banking options are emerging daily, to ensure you get your money from your clients quickly and safely
  6. Online Stores – Goods can be easily and safely sold online

If you want to effortlessly share and collaborate with employees or business partners; give yourself and employees a flexible working environment; connect with clients quickly and easily; save time on administration and increase productivity then using tech is the answer for you.

In an ever changing environment and more options than you can count, a business coach can help you decide when and how to implement any of these and how to choose the best possible option to suit you and your industry needs.

Do not let the running of your business overwhelm you, instead use the tools that are readily available and take control of your company today.
