A headache. That’s what’s coming.
Whenever a small business decides to invest in IT, such as sales softwares or perhaps CRM softwares, they often underestimate the challenge of integration. i.e; the challenge of integrating existing business practices with the newly acquired software.
You see, small businesses operate very differently in comparison to medium and large sized organizations. Because of the various market positioning strategies and operational strategies that small businesses use, it is rather difficult to group together small businesses in terms of operational and marketing strategy. This makes the development of customized IT systems an expensive option for small businesses.
Similarly, there are other challenges foreseen when introducing IT to your small business. Some of them are as follows
These are the costs of IT developed and customized to fit your small business. Cost estimates of a comprehensive IT system for a small business will vary between KR 250,000 - 2.5MN. This is more than the average small business can afford to spend on automation.
A modern IT system will be outdated in a year’s time, rendering it obsolete and expensive to maintain. Will your IT investment decision be justifiable in the future?
System Support Requirements:
IT systems are notorious for crashing when least expected. Will your small business be able to find technical support to assist and help recovery in such times?
Threat of Job elimination & employee morale:
When you introduce IT to your small business, some office functions and/or business processes may be automated to enhance efficiencies at the workplace. Some of your employees may feel that their job security has been compromised and may feel threatened. This will affect your staff morale in a negative manner.
