Stay ahead of the curve post-COVID
Be future-ready with Acuity and Sage
As a leading UK Sage Partner, we like to keep up to date with all the latest industry news. This week, an article from Industrial News, titled What we should learn from the COVID-19 digital transformation caught our attention.
The article discusses the predicted three-to-ten-year jump we have seen in digital and technological adoption during the pandemic.
Many businesses have invested in various software solutions, including Cloud Accounting Software like Sage, in order to keep their businesses operating and their team members collaborating effectively while working from home.
Additionally, in late 2020, The Manufacturer surveyed manufacturing professionals in relation to their digital transformation. The resulting report, commissioned by IBM, brought up some interesting data.
Here are some key points we found interesting:
- The importance of adopting digitalisation within manufacturing businesses has led to 67% of those surveyed accelerating digital projects within their companies during the pandemic.
- Priorities of leaders has also shifted – 92% of participants ranked operational resilience as their greatest priority post-COVID.
- Followed closely by wellbeing and work environment; supply chain integrity and resilience; supply chain visibility and improving operational efficiency.
Industrial News puts the digital transformation during the pandemic down to businesses accepting and adopting a software-first approach, and a future-first mindset.
At Acuity, Sage software is our business, and setting our customers up with a future-ready and flexible solution is what we strive for.
Ultimately, the one thing we know as well as ourselves is our customers. The affect COVID has had on them and their businesses, as well as how we work with them both now and in the future is top priority for us.
We don’t believe in future-proofing – it is impossible to predict what might come next – so instead, we aim to help our customers and their businesses become future-ready.
