Outdated Technology Need not Hinder Association Potential

outdated technology associations

Amidst a fast-paced digital era, technology is progressing by leaps and bounds. Although some kinds of tech have stood the test of time, the cost of outdated technology befalls mainly in the following areas:

Processes & security

Facing technical issues is the most easily detectable downside. People spend more time trying to figure out administrative tasks than they do engaging with members and each other.

As technology is rapidly advancing, it becomes increasingly challenging to stay ahead of the competition while relying on outdated technology. The impact on performance can be serious, especially in terms of data losses, susceptibility to cyber attacks, and inadequate tech support from providers.

Productivity

Once an IT system faces issues, the employees’ focus shifts from carrying out their projects to resolving the issue. The more outdated the technology, the bigger the impact might be. It limits the ability to respond to the changing needs of the organization and the market. This can significantly decrease productivity and hinder the workflow.

Interacting with defective systems causes frustration and disengagement not only to employees but also to customers and members.

Member & customer perception

People, especially tech-savvy millennials, expect outstanding user experience. If what they experience fails to meet their standards, expect them to express their judgment and disappointment.

When the lack of technological updates persists for a long time, customers and members might begin to lose their confidence. Their expectations of being serviced by the latest technology, compels them to be associated with organizations that regularly enhance their services with new tools.

If these points struck a chord, it may be time to replace outdated technology. To enjoy the benefits of tailor-made digital solutions that will facilitate and optimise your association potential, visit our website or contact us here.
