Skeleton using outdated technology

Outdated Tech Costs You More

August 17, 2017

The Pitfalls of Outdated Tech

Outdated Tech although may not be financially dangerous in your personal life. But may be extremely detrimental to your work environment or to your business. Not only would you be at risk of losing profit. But you may also be putting your entire business at risk.

You or your company may be doing their very best to deliver on the high expectations of your customers, business partners and investors. While having to deal with your company's technological limitations.

To increase productivity technology is provided to employees with the intent of helping to increase their productivity by saving both time and effort. While also reducing human error, and driving the speed of service to customers. But when your technology becomes a daily source of frustration for yourself or your team. It’s time to start looking for alternative solutions to make the work easier. That may be an increase in the amount of training you or your staff complete or you may have to consider alternative technological solutions. If you value your performance it’s important not to lag in technology too much.

Here are the main downsides of using outdated technology:

  • People spend more time navigating administrative tasks than they do engaging with customers and each other in value-added ways.
  • Technology is evolving at such a rapid pace that it becomes increasingly difficult to compete if your business relies on outdated tech.
  • People, especially customers expect an exceptional user experience when they interact with technology. When your technological user experience fails to provide a clean and easy to navigate interface. Your company is being judged very poorly and that does not lead to conversions.
  • Outdated tech, or cobbled together solutions. Limits your ability to respond to the needs of your organizations. In addition to market changes in a timely matter.

Then, of course, there are the purely technical downsides of outdated tech on your organization’s performance. Including but definitely not limited to: data loss, cyber-attacks, data security and limited tech support from software and hardware providers. Which  may be more critical than you think. These are situations that can affect and do effect every company that does not maintain their technological base or fails to properly educate their employees on its uses. Don't stand still, review your staff skill set and systems regularly!

Lauren - Power BI DAX, .
Lot of content, Michael was easy to follow and very helpful. I have lots to take back to work an d practice. I note that we didn't go through the book as it is laid out and there are probably a lot of exercises that we didn't get time to do. I expect that this will need to be done in our own time later. I think this course can be stretched over 2 days. -Power BI DAX Sydney

This course was very informative for someone who is very familiar with Excel and self-taught but wanting to fill in the gaps and expand their knowledge even more. Steven was a brilliant trainer - he spoke clearly and slowly (which really helps when doing this course online) and made sure that everyone in the session was following each step. And his virtual chocolate frogs were much appreciated! Thank you so much! -Excel Advanced Brisbane
Rebecca - Excel Advanced, .

Steven was a fantastic teacher - explained things clearly and checked in. His also took the time to find out what we do for work and try to tailor what we focused on based on those needs or highlight when what we were learning may be especialy applicable to certain people. The course is great with the resources to play with - i got a lot out of it Virutal chocolate frogs for Steven! -Excel Advanced Brisbane
