How to Digitize Your Company Without an IT Department

As a small business, the everyday focus of employees and executives is to zero in on the core business and the customer experience. The common thread among small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs or SMEs) is that most of the workforce has to, at one point or another, wear a different hat or take on a task that might not be aligned with their day-to-day, but their goal is always to deliver on the core business. Because of this, it’s hard for SMBs to undertake what seems like an incredibly daunting task: kickstart and implement a digital transformation across the board for all the departments of the business.

Here’s the good news: as a small or medium-sized business, you don’t have to go at it alone, and there are a plethora of options and resources for you to tap into to help you undergo your digital transformation, even if (or especially if) you don’t have an IT department that can handle the additional workload on this issue.

Software development and implementations can present unprecedented and time-consuming challenges that make them an item that keeps getting pushed down to the bottom of the to-do list, and what you really need is a partner that can walk you through the process of analyzing your business needs, restructuring existing processes and doing away with those that are not creating an impact, and launch a newly transformed digital business. Here’s how we can help with that and more here at Lagash:

  • Digital transformation is not just about converting existing processes into a digital format, but rather taking an audit of all operative and managerial tasks, seeing the impact on the business (ROI and time required) and figuring out whether they need to continue to be done, can be modified and improved, or can be done away with altogether. We can help you run this report on your infrastructure and make recommendations based on the results.
  • Once we have figured out what the highest impact business needs are, we begin designing and creating a custom-fit solution that takes into account all of the relevant business variables to make the perfect system for you and your business. This will allow you to run your business efficiently, save time and money on useless solutions, and gear your employees towards activities that create a bigger footprint in the company and in turn helps them feel more valuable.
  • Before it’s time to implement and going live, we make sure that we test the solution against all odds and possible variables so that we catch any glitches or issues before they arise during actual use. This has been a key differentiator for us in the industry, as we make sure to deliver a solution that not only performs well but is set up to handle most crises if needed.
  • After you’ve gone live and start seeing results with your new solution, we pride ourselves on our continued support and will continue to be there every step of the way for you as you grow and scale your business and reach, and can help you navigate the growing pains with ad hoc solutions as well.

At Lagash, our job is to enable you to be the best in the market, with the tools to give your customers an experience like no other in your field. Contact us for a consultation where we can help you decide whether a custom-fit solution is right for you and how we can help you elevate your business to measure up to the era of the digital transformation, and the next industrial revolution.
