The incipient economic crisis leaves most businesses without customers and profits. The economy is losing billions of dollars every day, and there is no saying when the crisis is resolved, and we can all go back to business as usual. If your company is struggling during the switch from offline to online operations, there is still time to implement quick fixes and keep the business afloat until the end of the economic slump.
Today Paul Belogour, Boston Unisoft Technologies CEO, shares two proven ways IT vendors can help you outlast the crisis and make most of the new reality.
Update Your Website to Withstand Increased Traffic
With mandated social distancing protocols in place, your customers turn to websites and mobile apps for goods and services. According to Vox, US traffic has increased by 23% since the beginning of the year. New York has seen the biggest increase of 36%. The Internet traffic will continue to grow as more people are forced to stay indoors, and companies switch to remote operations. While this provides endless business opportunities, traffic growth can also spell trouble if your website is not ready to handle the additional load.
You should act fast and audit the technology stack and hardware behind your online presence and get it ready for a boost in traffic. If you cannot afford an in-house IT department, outsource the audit and updates to a professional team, such as Paul Belogour and Boston Unisoft Technologies. Our experts will assess the current state of your website and offer solutions that can stabilize it in time for increased load. Professional developers will ensure your site stays online through the rush and prevent failures.
Do not wait for your website to crash, contact our team today to ensure your business stays strong throughout the crisis.
Automate Business Processes to Increase Efficiency
Amazon and Walmart are opening over 250,000 new positions amid the worldwide crisis to handle the increased customer demand. Even international giants struggle under the growing number of orders and have to adjust quickly or risk losing business and profit. If your company is seeing an increase in demand, you can follow Amazon’s lead and hire new employees or increase efficiency through careful analysis and automation of business processes. You would be surprised how much faster and smoother your company can run with process organization and automation in place.
Boston Unisoft Technologies can help you achieve increased efficiency quickly by implementing one or more of these solutions:
- CRM updates or implementation. Small and medium business owners rarely see the need to incorporate customer relationship management solutions into their daily operations. However, those who do will win in times of crisis, as they can easily communicate with customers, engage them, run promotions, process orders, and increase profit. Boston Unisoft Technologies team specializes in developing intuitive CRM systems for businesses of any size and industry. With our experts on your side, you will prevent business losses and make most of the growing demand.
- Order payment automation. If you are not ready to start a large-scale business operations overhaul, start with essentials, such as payment processing. Our software engineers can incorporate a secure and user-friendly payment system to ensure your customers can add items to a bag, pay for them, and receive order confirmation without engaging any of your employees. The automated order system will stave off the need to inflate your order processing staff.
- Third-party software integration. Yet another way to improve operational efficiency is by making most of the ready-made solutions available for your business. Boston Unisoft Technologies team has been working on integration and synchronization projects for years, and we can make your business run like a clock despite increased load and employee shortage.
