Make Technology Essential

Making technology essential

Technology is an essential part to today’s business. It is used everyday as a form of communication, storage, and continued business advancement and growth. If 2020 has made one thing very clear, it is that technology isn’t going anywhere and having the right technology for your business is essential. But how do you know what type of technology your business needs? You may not know it yet but working with a consultant may be the next step in getting your technology needs met.

You are not the expert in all the different areas of business technology, which is why looking for guidance elsewhere is beneficial. For example, here at Devine Consulting we work with all forms of accounting technology. We work with our clients to ensure they are using the best software option available for their business. Not every software or technology platform is the right fit for every business. A property management company has different needs than a store front, so their technology solutions will be different. Another thing to put into the equation for your business is the size of your operation. You have plans to grow sure but that doesn’t mean that you are at that point yet. Having a plan for the future of your business is also an essential part of the technology decision process. You want a solution that can grow with you or have a plan to transition to another solution when the time is right. Working with a consulting firm is a great way to ensure that these needs and more are met as you choose the right solution for you.

It is important to make technology your friend, not your enemy. Technology should be there to support your business and working with an outside consultant is the next right step. Work with those who know their industry and can give you advice on what to use now and in the future.

I'm an experienced finance professional with more than 20 years of experience. I've held several Controller positions throughout my career, most notably with an internationally respected commercial real estate investment, management, and brokerage firm. In this role, I was responsible for all aspects of accounting across the company's many operational divisions - including internet services, real estate development, property management, and brokerage services. As our company operated in multiple countries and currencies, it was essential to me that all financial reports were accurate and compliant.
