The future of technology and marketing: a multidisciplinary perspective
Technology has revolutionized the way companies conduct business by enabling small businesses to level the playing field with larger organizations.
Small businesses use an array of tech — everything from servers to mobile devices — to develop competitive advantages in the economic marketplace. Small business owners should consider implementing technology in their planning process for streamlined integration and to make room for future expansion.
This allows owners to create operations using the most effective technology available. Small business owners can use technology to reduce business costs. Basic enterprise software enables a firm to automate back office functions, such as record keeping, accounting and payroll. Mobile tech allows home offices and field reps to interact in real time. For example, field reps can use mobile apps to record their daily expenses as they incur them and have them sync automatically with accounting software back at the office.
Business owners can also use technology to create secure environments for maintaining sensitive business or consumer information. Many types of business technology or software programs are user-friendly and allow business owners with only minor backgrounds in information technology to make the most of their tools and features. Business technology helps small businesses improve their communication processes. Emails, texting, websites and apps, for example, facilitate improved communication with consumers.
Using several types of information technology communication methods enable companies to saturate the economic market with their message. Companies may also receive more consumer feedback through these electronic communication methods. Technology also improves inter-office communication as well. For example, social intranet software gives employees a centralizes portal to access and update internal documents and contracts and relay relevant data to other departments instantly.
These methods also help companies reach consumers through mobile devices in a real-time format. Small businesses can increase their employees' productivity through the use of technology. Computer programs and business software usually allow employees to process more information than manual methods. Business owners can also implement business technology to reduce the amount of human labor in business functions.
This allows small businesses to avoid paying labor costs along with employee benefits. Even fundamental business tech can have a major impact on employee performance. For example, by placing employee-performance appraisal information in an online framework, supervisors can easily create measurable goals for their employees to reach and sustain company objectives. Business owners may also choose to expand operations using technology rather than employees if the technology will provide better production output.
Technology allows small businesses to reach new economic markets. Rather than just selling consumer goods or services in the local market, small businesses can reach regional, national and international markets. Retail websites are the most common way small businesses sell products in several different economic markets. Small business owners can also use internet advertising to reach new markets and customers through carefully placed web banners or ads.
Business technology allows companies to outsource business functions to other businesses in the national and international business environment. Outsourcing can help companies lower costs and focus on completing the business function they do best. Technical support and customer service are two common function companies outsource. Small business owners may consider outsourcing some operations if they do not have the proper facilities or available manpower.
Outsourcing technology also allows businesses to outsource function to the least expensive areas possible, including foreign countries. By Osmond Vitez Updated February 12, Related Articles.
New technologies have revolutionized nearly every aspect of human existence, including the ways that firms market products and services to consumers. Along with now familiar innovations like the Internet, greater computing capacity, mobile devices and applications, and social media, more radical innovations are emerging. Thus, it should come as no surprise that firms across nearly every business sector e. For example, many manufacturing firms seek cost savings through mechanized and robotic production processes, which both limit labor costs and increase production efficiencies. Retailers and service firms devote more spending to online, mobile, and social media platforms in attempts to better communicate and connect with customers both current and potential , thereby increasing their revenues.

Introduction to Strategic Technology Management
Думаю, англичанка. И с какими-то дикими волосами - красно-бело-синими. Беккер усмехнулся, представив это зрелище. - Может быть, американка? - предположил. - Не думаю, - сказала Росио.
Очевидно, там у него был адрес, который он сумел утаить. Это хорошо защищенный почтовый ящик, и мне лишь случайно удалось на него наткнуться. - Он выдержал паузу. - Итак, если Танкадо хотел, чтобы мы обнаружили его почту, зачем ему понадобился секретный адрес.
Что же случилось утром. - Я все рассказал лейтенанту. - Я с ним говорил, но… - Надеюсь, вы отчитали его как следует! - воскликнул Клушар.
И теперь - во что просто не верится - какой-то ни о чем не подозревающий канадский турист держит в своих руках ключ к самому мощному шифровальному алгоритму в истории.
