It is common sense for businesses to look at where they are overspending and consider money-saving alternatives. One possible solution is automation, which can use technology to reduce staffing costs. This can be scary for those in at-risk jobs but it can be good for business. Automation is not all about robots taking over the workplace, but that’s not entirely science fiction either.
The digital revolution is affecting almost every industry, but the legal sector has been slow to change. Modernisation of other services affects client expectations of all industries, including the legal sector.
Despite often dealing with complex cases and sensitive information, the industry still needs to evolve. In an age when you can buy your house online, it would be illogical not to be able to deal with a solicitor this way too. More legal firms are now adopting digital approaches, but there are still many more opportunities for the industry.
At its core, big data is all about unmasking the intricacies and nuances of customers and clients to provide a tailored experience and product. With that being said, it may come as no surprise that the education system has flocked to these principles and tried to adapt big data to fit their model.
While the advent of sophisticated mobile technology can be a godsend for productivity and adaptability, it can still spell trouble for those who aren’t practising proper mobile security habits.
Obviously, one of the core principles of having a relationship with a client is confidentiality. So, what if you had a data breach on your smartphone and compromised sensitive client materials? Aside from losing a client, you could risk threatening your personal image or your law firm’s.
Thankfully, there are some ways that lawyers can protect their clients and themselves when it comes to working on mobile devices.
No term has captured the zeitgeist of the technological revolution in the business world like, “big data”. This all-encompassing term came to define the way that thousands of businesses looked at their customers differently.
As big data is all about facts, figures, and unparalleled insight – it’s no surprise that the insurance industry was one of the first industries to latch on to big data in a major way. The use of financial data, actuarial data, claims data and risk data cover virtually every important decision an insurance company makes.
Technology often brings new opportunities and tools, particularly for industries and sectors that have been around for a long time. Education is no exception. So what’s out there to get parents and teachers communicating beyond brief after-school chats and Parents Evening? We did some research and spoke to some teachers to find out.
Digital transformation covers a range of aspects and ideas. Ultimately it’s about improving our business by introducing digital tools or approaches to your usual way of doing things. It’s something that should be approached with caution – not everything needs a digital overhaul.
We’ve taken a look at the subject and spoken to some people who have taken on digital transformation themselves.
Whether it’s purchasing clothing or ordering a takeaway, it’s no longer unusual to have a conversation with a robot. With more bots now incorporating Facebook Messenger, the technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated.
Messenger bots can be used to answer your questions and direct you towards items when you are unsure of what to choose, but what about for big purchases such as buying a house?
We are pleased to launch three new animated videos that explain the benefits of our most popular services.
James Spencer, Director at Systems Technology, said, “We know all too well that despite our services being hugely beneficial to organisations of all sizes, the topics themselves can be a little dry. Our ‘little blue men’ are here to inform, entertain and help our visitors understand how we can help their businesses.”
With the increased reliance and necessity of having mobile computing, it’s no wonder that a BYOD (Bring your Own Device) policy has become quite popular with many companies. The cost and inherent difficulty for IT departments to keep up with every technological shift has made employees yearn for their own devices.
From laptops to tablets to smart phones, it can be hugely beneficial for employees to be able to work on the device of their choosing. The familiarity, advanced technology, and accessibility of modern mobile devices are empowering employees to do their best work.
However not every aspect of a BYOD policy is a no brainer. Arguably the biggest drawback is the security risks that come along with employees using their own devices.
