COVID-19 – Future-proof Yourself
Category: Tips & Tricks
In the current climate with COVID-19, things have been quite uncertain and everyone has been impacted in one way or another. This is the perfect opportunity to observe what is happening and take steps to minimise the impacts to your business now and into the future.
Take your Store Online
If this crisis has shown business owners anything, it’s how quickly income can dry up when you rely solely on people visiting a physical store. Having an online store has never been more important and technology has come such a long way in making the whole process quick and easy.
Custom Code IT can work with you to create a great shopping experience for your customers.
We have seen a huge increase in the number of people working from home during this period. The internet enables an almost seamless transition from working in an office building to working from the comfort of your own home. However, one of the struggles faced by businesses is a reliance on paper-based processes and systems. By going paperless you can increase your productivity, decrease errors and rework, cut-down on double and triple handling throughout the process lifecycle and even meet security and audit requirements more easily.
Custom Code IT can work with you to turn your paper based systems and processes into fast and efficient digital systems, allowing you and your employees to still get work done, no matter the location.
Build or Update your Website
Right now is a fantastic opportunity to spend some time building a new website or refreshing your old one. People are spending more time at home and online so take advantage of the potential increase in traffic and give customers a great user experience.
It’s also a great time to take care of website maintenance tasks. Creating backups, updating software, etc. You should already be doing this on a regular basis but if you’re not, there’s no better time to start.
Don’t want to spend hours doing maintenance and would rather leave it to an expert? Talk to us about our range of support plans so you can get on with the important stuff.
By spending some time improving processes, building online stores and updating or building a website, you can make sure that you’re maximising your income during this time and be ready for when everything gets back to business as usual.
