Doing business online has become a cornerstone of running a successful company in the 21st century. That being said, it has never been more crucial to jump online than it is right now.
Remote working and social distancing have created a segmented world, socially and economically, which has fuelled the acceleration towards remote business models. The key to making these business models work is, of course, sterling technology.
Here are aspects to develop for your company’s tech solutions, starting with;
The core of a successful business, one could argue, is its ability to optimize its networking. There’s no point in having state of the art computers if they are not networked in a fashion that allows them to be exploited to their full potential.
Networking can mean anything from selecting a better router for small businesses to buying the latest generation of switches for a huge office complex. That isn’t to mention that for remote working solutions, you may need to consider central hubs to work from – such as cloud-based storage solutions beyond the potential of Google Drive and iCloud.
Taking a serious look at how your employees work with their machines and how you process your data remotely can be a way to elevate your business to the next level.
Let’s Not Forget Servers
Tieing into the need for exceptional networking is, ultimately, the need for an equally exceptional server.
While having your own server is a bit of a niche requirement, it is becoming more common for businesses to buy into having their own server. This is opposed to renting server space. The benefits being more control over your data, a more flexible storage solution, and the ability to tailor your workspaces accordingly.
Having your own server also comes with the benefit of always having dedicated storage, and being able to diagnose and fix your server without the need of a third party (usually). This can lead to less downtime and a more streamlined business.
Some excellent choices for servers exist on ETB tech. For example, the Dell Tower server options are extensive with everything from the Dell PowerEdge T130s to the top of the line Dell PowerEdge T440s; with two Bronze 3106 Eight-Core processors among other impressive specifications!

Keep Your Digital Spaces Productive
While hardware is important, the software companies use can often be neglected or forgotten about. There is a reason that productivity software has become more popular over the last decade or so. It is all about working smart, as well as hard.
Just like networking is crucial for the smooth functioning of the various devices your employees will use, the software on those devices is just as important. Admittedly, many software packages will be industry-specific like Adobe Premiere or Sony Vegas Pro, but that doesn’t mean all of them are.
Software like Slack, ClickUp, the full Microsoft Office Suite, and countless others are designed to help with office productivity in all kinds of organizations.
Taking ClickUp as an example, it incorporates note taking, to-dos, and project management into one seamless workspace. Creating projects, task lists, unique project IDs with color-coded management, date and time-based deadlines, and the capacity to organise hundreds of projects at once makes ClickUp (and other software like it) invaluable in today’s age.
Think Big And Don’t Limit Your Potential
All in all, how business works today has changed from five years ago. And no doubt, in five years, it will be drastically different from how it is today.
But that is the nature of business.
With this in mind, staying on top of or just behind the tech curve will help your business adapt for what’s next; no matter what ‘next’ may be for your industry.
