One of the major failures of most business’s today is when to identify something as a business data issue. Case in point most managers will jump to trying to justify end processes before they have a good or even basic understanding of how their businesses data is performing. This is a common issue so don’t feel bad about it.
Legislative changes often force industry changes which some parties don’t think it warranted. This often leads to processes and systems designed to meet the bare minimum requirements instead of ones which look to use and leverage changes as an opportunity to add value to their products and services. No valuable customer wants to work with a supplier who cuts corners, most of all around health and safety.
Business DMS is currently working with a number of businesses around New Zealand to help them adapt to the Health and Safety Act (2015) which many companies have been caught on the wrong side of; particularly around the handling of hazardous substances. Most of their current systems and processes are failing to make the grade and they were facing harsh penalties and damage to their reputation. But as a partner Business DMS had been able to step in a show them a way forward where they can turn a cumbersome legal burden into a value-added asset for their staff and customers.
The key is defining value within the data and implementing it at every stage of the process to leverage engagement and benefit across the whole organisation. Each business is unique and special; with implementation and culture change every bit as important in the process as the software systems and functionality aspects.
Data is central to unlocking the potential of business in 2019. Many companies are jumping on board and securing their future in the digital economy. Change is happening quickly, but with partners in the space like Business DMS we can make strides forward together.
