Challenges Faced By The Modern Day Business – And How Interactive Technology Can Help

How technology can help with training

The global economic downturn in the last half-decade changed the focus of modern day businesses. Rather than growth, the corporate world were looking for ways of saving costs in order to turn a profit. But from the down-sizing culture, collaboration technologies emerged that not only allowed businesses to cut costs, but also offer potential opportunities for future growth.

Interactive technologies allow the modern business to be versatile, dynamic and forward thinking. At the same time they enable you to scrutinise corporate developments, considerably reduce costs and meet obligations to reduce your carbon footprint. What’s more is they are much more enjoyable to use than traditional technologies that will soon fall by the wayside.

Investment in training

Training staff can be a drain on resources, particularly for companies with satellite offices. One of the primary selling points of collaboration technologies is that they can be used to communicate with multiple employees in remote locations and allow users to be actively involved no matter where they are based in the world.

The functionality of interactive whiteboards in particularly allow trainers to convey information and training exercises to colleagues, and trainees can engage with trainers in real-time during a training session. Data is stored in the usual way and can be retrieved by authorised personnel at any time.

The software included with interactive packages is also very versatile and has the ability for users to draw on numerous sources from multiple locations including personal files and the internet. The approach with which you target collaboration activities enables you to engage your audience and enhance to the user experience.

Reducing carbon footprint

The ability to communicate from a distance negates the need for travel. Not only does this significantly reduce costs, but cuts the carbon footprint of your company. In the modern age, environmental considerations are a critical agenda – not only due to government legislation, but is expected from clients and shareholders.

The redundancies that followed the 2008 banking crisis meant many businesses down-sized and moved to smaller offices. Now the economy is growing they will need to expand again. Moving offices is costly and with an increase in energy prices will over stretch budgets and increase CO2 emissions.

With analysts also predicting another financial crisis is imminent, corporations will be left needing to downsize or will fold under the burden of financial commitments. Interactive technologies allow businesses to improve collaboration between remote locations so that employees can continue to work from home or use their own devices in the office on a BYOD scheme.

The same rules apply for communicating with business partners in overseas countries. Annual travel expenses can easily run into tens of thousands of pounds when collaborating with foreign investors or clients. The savings you can make by investing in interactive technologies allow you to grow your business in other areas.

Technology often plays a major role in the corporate world, but has not always been as accessible or enjoyable as interactive collaboration.
