Improve business success with increased technology adoption

By Jennifer Goodebusiness success

Often the biggest factor in the success of new technology in the workplace is not the technology itself, but its adoption among team members.

Most companies have at least some divergence among employees when it comes to adopting technology. Some can’t wait to get their hands on the latest applications, often viewing them not only as productive tools but also as extensions of themselves.

On the other side of the divide are those employees who aren’t so eager. They may be less skilled in or comfortable with technology, and in some cases they may even be intimidated by it. As a result, they tend to resist new software and electronic tools that threaten to disrupt their comfort zone. They may also be more inclined to want to know only the parts of an application that help them do their jobs and less inclined to venture beyond their initial training.

As a business owner, however, it’s in your best interest to try to bridge this technological divide so that all your associates become more efficient, thereby boosting your organization’s profits and value.

There is hope. [Read more…]

Microsoft Dynamics GP ACA Compliance and Year End

Dynamics GP ACA ComplianceWith looming form mandates for 2015, many have questions regarding how Microsoft Dynamics GP ACA compliance will be achieved.
