The importance of digital transformation

The importance of digital transformation

iGEO ERP Cloud Platform is a software that was born as a response to the needs of the pest control and environmental health itself, which requires having its own technological tool to manage all business processes. In this post, we will explain the importance of digital transformation, the immersion of a cloud-based software, and the relevance of the recent 5G.

Digital transformation: cloud-based technology and process automation

Digital transformation has a clear goal, which is that information is available at all times, accessible anywhere, and usable on any device. In addition, according to recent research carried out in 2019, companies that invested in digital transformation have experienced a substantial increase in their profits.

Once businesses start working with a powerful software and settle in the cloud, they undertake process automation, leading to their tasks reflecting workflows. As a result, they obtain reports on those procedures and are able to assess and correct in real time any aspect with no need of human intervention.

Speeding up operations contributes to overcoming staff shortages and improves security, among other features.

The advantages of being in the cloud

The cloud allows you to exert a more comprehensive control over your company. Thanks to an integral solution founded on cloud-based business management, you may monitor all financial, commercial, and planning aspects, among others, in your company.

This comprehensive tool allows you to obtain a global view in real time. That increases your reaction capacity in the face of the market’s circumstances and represents a great asset against your competitors.

Time and location will no longer be a problem when accessing a business process or any kind of documentation. A cloud-based integrated software will prevent you from losing any business opportunities due to not being present at the company’s premises. Your office may be anywhere.

Another advantage lies in being able to interact with other specialised online apps and export data to them. All cloud-based integrated software products comply with the regulations of the country where they operate and help your company’s activity achieve the same. Furthermore, security is much greater, given this kind of programmes depends on specialised companies charged with guaranteeing backups, data encrypting, and protection.

All these advantages, that allow you to control all your departments with the same cloud-based comprehensive tool, will lead to increasing your profits and to optimising your work times.

Big data’s contributions

Big data or advanced data analyses are being used by companies to evaluate the behaviour of their clients and prospects. Thanks to these, you may react to unforeseen events in real time. 

For managers and executives, it is vital to obtain digital metrics to assess their processes’ success and failure. For that matter, big data does not only help to obtain present information, but also it is essential to be able to plan market strategies both in the short and long term.

The importance of 5G

5G will bring a series of advantages to companies at an unprecedented level. According to the report ‘5G and its Impact on Enterprise Digital Transformation’, by Strategy Analytics, it is expected that many kinds of sectors increase their market opportunities. It is the case of companies developing virtual and/or augment reality, business apps for mobile phones, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G devices, etc.

5G will promote a deep industry transformation, which will impact the personal sphere, as well as companies on a global scale, and will increase productivity, mobility, and profitability.
