How Can Technology Become A Tailor Made Business Solution?

Technology is a central part of Business operations, and has been for many years. One of the biggest curiosities when it comes to technology, however, is how many businesses use products that are not necessarily 100% relevant or useful to them.

Whether it’s a retailer looking at a POS platform or an office based business looking at their web hosting or internal servers, many businesses have found themselves altering the way they work due to the technology they use. Rather than find the thing to fit their business perfectly, they have found themselves working with the best option, albeit one that has downsides that they will deal with. That is quickly becoming outdated, however, as technology solutions become more ‘tailor made’ towards business needs.

How, and why, has this happened?

Business Recognition

There are two types of people in the world.

There are those who take what is available, make the best of it, and deal with any negatives that come as a result. In contrast, there are those who take what is available, work with it, but are constantly questioning how it can improve and think of why to add on their own ideas.

Those who fall into the latter category are very much responsible for these latest trends in business technology. Bespoke solutions are more popular and widely sought than ever before, because people have looked at what was available, perhaps specifically at what they were using, and simply said “there has to be a better way.”

How can these bespoke business technology solutions have an impact on a company?

Take What You Need

Ask many businesses who work with technology what they think of their products, and many will say they love one product or platform, but because of that, they also have another one that they need to work with even if they don’t use it.

Take a web-hosting business as an example. In years past, if you signed up to a web-hosting service you would have to choose a subscription or service plan based on the options available. Even if some of it sounded needless, you’d go for the one most fitting your needs. Sometimes, this means you are paying, in essence, for something you don’t use.

Today, and in the future, instead of doing this, you will pay a base fee for the service and then ‘bolt on’ all of the features you wish to use. No more paying for things for no reason, or adapting a business to work around something you’re aren’t entirely convinced by.

Replicate this across internal data servers, POS solutions, and any other business technology, and it is clear the potential that ‘tailor made’ solutions has in terms of making use of various platforms much more efficient and cost effective.

Future Trends

As we move forward, technology will move much more towards fulfilling specific needs rather than offering a range of ‘assumed value’ services. If a business needs something that isn’t available, then rather than accepting it, such a platform will be developed. This new approach makes the future of bespoke business technology exciting, and in many respects, of limitless potential.
