Technology is the backbone in our businesses. In this twenty first century, also known as the age of communication, businesses heavily depend on technology such that it cannot function to its’ maximum level without it. Haven’t you noticed that there is no serious business that does not have a website? All industries are now using computers for complex and easy operations. In the business world, the lack of emerging technology equals to failure. Technology is permeating every business and as such it is vital that business embraces it and determines how best to utilize it, not only for the company but for the clients or customers.
Technology has played a major role globally in the development of trade and commerce. Trade has always existed since the beginning where barter trade was done before the discovery of currency. But in our modern world, things have changed when it comes to trade and transactions.
Internet trading is the major medium of trade that can compressively market a business world wide. Through search engine optimization, you can easily locate a company that sells the product that you may need. You do not have to go searching every where to get your desired product, modern technology has the ability to help you locate an online retail or wholesale shop using a computer via internet. In addition, online services are very effective because they offer delivery services and discount on the items you buy. A recent report showed that over a billion smartphones alone were sold in 2014 and c. 60% of searches online in 2014 were completed with the use of a mobile device.
The cleaning industry has a perception of being a little wedded to the past and doesn’t embrace change. This is a mistake; methods and techniques that may once have worked to generate new business and acquire new clients are becoming less and less effective. The internet is driving change and it’s vital that business in the commercial cleaning industry recognise this and adjust their business models accordingly.
We recognise this and are constantly looking at ways to make the delivery of our service more streamlined to offer a better service to our customers.
