The Best Digital Tool to Invest in Right Now
Technology has come a long way since we first had a glimpse of what it could do. While that may sound cliche, there’s a whole lot of truth and mind-blowing detail wrapped in that simple statement. At the initial stage of technology’s arrival, we familiarized ourselves with hardware like printers, desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and lots more, and we used them to complete simple tasks with basic software for messaging, keeping time, taking pictures, and saving dates on our calendar. However, with time, the software has evolved massively and that has started an entirely different revolution under which anything can be made possible and easy too.
Today, there are over a billion applications on the different app stores that exist, enabling us all to do just about anything we can think of.
Surviving through the pandemic has been hard, but with technology, businesses have been able to shut the doors to their physical offices and open a wider door online. Teams that have been dispersed across the world have been able to bridge the distance using collaboration software, complete million-dollar projects right from the comfort of a couch and celebrate wins – whether big or small – together.
Riding on the wings of this technological revolution, we at Descasio have continued to create tailored solutions for businesses of all sizes across Africa and beyond. Transforming businesses through technology has always been our goal. To see local businesses gain the digital advantage and begin to play on the global field is all that we live for.
To make that transition process easier, we recently launched a tool that allows business owners to run an X-ray of their business to find out which bones are cracking and which ones could use a little bit of firming up.
Typically, this solution helps businesses conduct a self-assessment, see what areas they need to improve on, see how technology can help them achieve better results in those areas, understand what technology solutions will be more appropriate for them, and get recommendations on the next steps to take in achieving their desired business outcome. In this simple guide, we’ll be showing you how to use our Digital Transformation Assessment Tool.
