Is your company in the habit of investing in your IT infrastructure? This is a common challenge we still see with growing companies. During the Great Recession, even growing companies stopped investing in their IT infrastructure, because they were concerned about survival. And that made sense at the time.
However, even with the recession behind us, many companies have not adjusted to the growth-focused environment when it comes to IT, and it is now limiting their growth. When your IT infrastructure is outdated and overburdened, it reduces your team’s productivity and can also cause frustration for customers.
If this is happening in your company, you could benefit from identifying the right IT infrastructure investments for growth:
- Review your strategic goals and look at how IT could support those goals.
- If you plan to add new employees, ask your IT team what investments are needed to ensure your IT infrastructure can handle them (e.g. network speed, computing resources).
- Ask your employees if productivity is suffering due to lack of communications between different systems or network slowdowns. They will know.
- Where can IT improve the customer experience so that it equals or exceeds their experience with competitors? Also, look for potential problem areas that could result from growth (e.g. handling more customer service calls).
When you make strategic investments in IT, you can improve your organization’s productivity and potential for faster growth.
