Thinking Beyond Digital Transformation As A Trend

Posted by Annelise Fasnacht on Aug 19, 2018 10:30:00 AM

The phrase “digital transformation” is a buzzword we hear often, but without a carefully considered strategy informing your implementation of audio visual solutions, your “transformation” may not go as planned. So let’s look forward and think about how to transform your organization in lasting ways.

Integrate Carefully

You should think about digital transformation as an organization-wide process that brings your whole enterprise into the fold. Consider how your collaboration and conferencing solutions will be integrated into every level of your company. Containing your transformation to a single department or team can quickly fragment your organization into digital and non-digital sects, and over time, these factions will find themselves contending with communication breakdowns.  A healthy organization is composed of departments that need to speak to each other with ease, and if the communication tools used across the organization are not consistent, the foundation of your organization could crumble. 

Focus On Outcomes

Digital solutions are more than a cosmetic upgrade. Sure, it might add some flash and flavor to first impressions, but no amount of audio visual razzle-dazzle can compensate for a lack of clear vision. If you don’t know what you want your digital upgrades to accomplish, your customers and clients will quickly notice. So think long and hard about what it is you are doing with digital technology--what problems you would like to solve, which areas you would like to improve, and how you see your company catering to customers and clients in the future. Digital transformation is more than a catch phrase. It’s a process that should extend into the years ahead.

Talk To Your Customers

Your first order of business should be getting your employees and stakeholders on board with your digital transformation, because without a buy-in from the people who make your business possible, you’re going nowhere fast. But this internal negotiation must be paired with customer outreach if you want your digital transformation to have lasting effects. You have to look at your business from your customers’ perspective, and the best way to do that is to actually talk to the people who use your services. How will your digital transformation impact your customers? How will you solve client challenges? How will you teach your customers how to use your new tools to better connect with your product? If you don’t ask yourself (and your customers) these questions, you might quickly find yourself without much of a customer base to query in the future.
