The Digital Tortoise and the Traditional Hare

Slow roasted.

Slow dancing.

Slow and steady.

No doubt about it, operating at a leisurely pace can certainly have its perks.

But cooking, dancing, and our favorite tenacious tortoise aside, slowness doesn’t always cut it. Especially in the business world.

Paper processes bog businesses down. And while paper had one heck of a run (approximately 2000 years) it’s no longer the sole participant in the race.

With the rise of the digital age, more and more companies are shaking off the dust of tradition, and adopting newer technology to produce accelerated workflows. This delights not just their customers — but their employees.

And employee happiness? It’s vital to a business’ success. In the words of Richard Branson, “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”

Let’s take a look together:

IF you’re in..

Human resources: Nab that perfect candidate before another company does. Sending over a digital contract means you’ll beat the competition to the punch.

Salesperson: If your business uses DocuSign for Salesforce, you’ll close deals faster, which makes for more hours in the day.

Marketing. You’ll receive that (digital) release form back much faster, so you can get started on your next campaign sooner.

And while adopting digital technology can have a profound impact on any one of your business’ departments, making a 100% digital leap is really what brings companies into the future and provides true edge over the competition.

What happens when you go fully digital:

That salesperson you hire? Sure, they’ll close deals faster using digital technology, but first, they’ll be on-boarded more efficiently because your HR department will have the ability to send over digital contracts.

Your employees in IT will be able to sort through trouble tickets more easily, which means when a tech snafu occurs in procurement? The problem will be fixed more quickly, and employees can return without extra lag time.

Meanwhile, marketing can execute projects at a faster rate, which means finance can not only bill sooner, but the billing process itself will be accelerated thanks to digital transaction management.

In short, making a fully digital transition provides a chain reaction of efficiency that runs throughout all departments on a daily basis. It means a more lucrative business. It means happier, less stressed employees. And that?

Is transforming into a digital tortoise and winning the race.
