We all sometimes need a “second set of eyes” on what we’re doing. From simple tasks like code reviews or copy editing to more complex evaluations like usability testing, getting a second opinion on our work can give us perspective and make us think about things we otherwise might not have considered because we’re too close to the work.
VALIDATING YOUR TECH TRANSFORMATION PLAN
Do you really need a new software solution or platform? Or can the one you have be optimized or reconfigured to work for you? Is upgrading now a good idea, or are there even better enhancements on their way if you wait just a couple of months? Should you get a data review? Integration mapping? Have you selected the best technology for your goals?
Tech transformations can be expensive, time-consuming, and disruptive to your business. Sometimes they’re necessary, but having an implementation partner weigh in on your plan might reveal options you previously overlooked.
REVIEWING YOUR DIGITAL TRANSITION PLAN
Thinking about adding ecommerce to your business? Great idea! Now, let’s look at what that really means for you and your teams. Do you have an infrastructure that will scale to meet demand? What are your plans for making your website commerce-friendly? How will you avoid in-store stock-outs when digital demand is high? Will your commerce engine integrate well with your existing technology?
Working with a digital business consultant will help you reduce risks and feel confident about moving forward into new territory.
PROVIDING INSIGHTS ABOUT NEW MARKET OPPORTUNITIES
Speaking of new territory: That new market looks like it might be something good for your business. Or...is it? How much do you know about how that industry or region conducts business online? What do you know about privacy laws (think: California or the EU)? If you’re considering subscription services or products, do you know how the pricing works? What about taxes on online goods and services?
An experienced consultant provides expert guidance (or rigorous market research) so you can safely navigate unfamiliar markets.
Getting a second opinion, with a partner who is not afraid to ask hard questions, provides you with peace of mind and boosts your confidence in your plan.
