Ways That Technology Might Be Inhibiting Our Efficiency and Solutions to Maximizing its Benefits
Welcome to the Digital Age. Gone are the days of typewriters, Polaroid cameras and rotary phones. Computers, digital cameras and smart phones have not only replaced their prehistoric counterparts in our ever-advancing technological world, but they are seemingly as much a necessity to one’s survival as food and clothing. Why? Simply put, they are the normal means of communication, productivity and solutions in both the corporate world and our personal lives. As technology continues to advance, however so must our understanding of how it all works and how to use it correctly. Failure to utilise technology correctly can negatively impact communication and efficiency. Here are three signs that the technology you are using may actually be slowing you down, and solutions for improvement and maximizing its benefits.
In the consulting world, one rule reigns supreme: It’s all about the end client.
If you’re not scrutinizing your client service, satisfaction, and delivery on a daily basis, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to survive and thrive in the business world. Still, catering to your end client can be more difficult than it appears, especially when you’re juggling both buyers and influencers.
Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet celebrated a year with the SBA on April 6. She likes to say we’re SMART, BOLD and ACCESSIBLE! And, of course we still concentrate on our three C’s – Capital, Contracting and Counseling – provided with the help of our lending partners and our resource partners, Small Business Development Centers, SCORE counselors, Women’s Business Centers, and Veteran’s Business Centers. Our SMART, BOLD and ACCESSIBLE mantra means we’ll be doing business smarter; making capital and contracts more accessible to small businesses and boldly letting more and more of you know about our programs and services.
Our District offices are working on adding 240 new and returning lenders to SBA’s flagship 7(a) loan program each year for the next three years, as well as increasing the number of lenders providing export finance solutions to small business borrowers. This spring, along with the U.S. Commercial Service, with help from the World Trade Center Kansas City, we sponsored a “Trade and Export Essentials” program linking small businesses with export experts from city, county, state and national sources. Nationally, SBA instituted the LINC program – our Administrator says it’s like a dating site between borrowers and banks–a direct connect at www.sba.gov for borrowers trying to find SBA participating non-profit lenders for microloans and SBA 504 program lenders for large community-based projects. Just click on the LINC picture on any of our website pages to see it work! Soon, we’ll add SBA 7(a) program lenders to the LINC and lenders from across the country will be contacting you if you need to borrow money.
