Our research, knowledge, thoughts, and recommendations about building and leading businesses on the Internet.
Legacy Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, usually based on on an in-house client-server model or an early generation browser-based system, are just not efficient or integrated enough for today’s organizational uses. Continued use of these systems also comes with an ever growing cost and a high possibility of your company falling behind the marketing and lead generating train.
Something we do regularly at our company is collect useful articles, blog posts, white papers, websites and more in the form of links we add to an internal system called Leaves. The following are 5 of the most interesting things we stumbled across this past month of March.
Your company can have a business platform, even if you don’t have a full-time CIO or CTO on your team. We can’t tell you how many times we have been in a conversation and we hear, “Wait, you can do that with technology!” Or, “Yeah, something didn’t seem right, but we didn’t have the expertise to question it.” It’s difficult enough to keep up with your specialty let alone the continual evolution in the tech space. However, it is critical as a company grows and evolves for it to get the tech decisions right. With the right software or tech partner a company can significantly leverage its investments to make itself more effective and productive with its limited resources. An inadequate purchase or working with the wrong tech vendor can lead to hindered operations and curtailed growth. As a small or medium sized company, it may be difficult to justify paying for a full-time tech expert though there is an alternative – you can hire a remote or virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) to advise you and your firm on these critical business decisions.
More and more companies are becoming aware of artificial intelligence (AI) and what it can do for the enterprise. This event will consist of three talks that will focus on a variety of actions your team and company can do to make use of artificial intelligence, specifically using a subset of AI called machine learning (ML).
Come check this event out on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM at the George Washington University’s Funger Hall. There will be food and drinks before the start of the event as well as a post-event get together at Circa. Please make sure to RSVP!
