Digitalization has been the supporting tool that, in the last half year, has made many companies keep their business afloat. Small and medium companies were the most open to adopting new technological solutions, notes Wizrom Software, one of the most important developers and integrators of business software in Romania.
The coronavirus pandemic stimulated the adoption of new technologies at a much faster pace than anyone would have expected, starting with state institutions and ending with small and medium enterprises.
“Companies have realized that they can only continue to operate if they are digitized. In the new healthcare context, we all realized that the services and products we needed, the collaboration with colleagues or clients, the activities we did at the office – all of these could be moved and done 100% online. And companies, especially SMEs, were the first to adapt to new needs and accelerate digitalization. I think we have condensed two years of digitization efforts in six months “, explains Anca Cîrstoiu, Division Manager Small & Medium Business within Wizrom Software.
The business environment is still marked by uncertainties and changes, and both managers and employees need tools to increase the efficiency of internal processes, at a pace that allows them to keep their customers as close as possible. In fact, the digitization processes involved, in the case of many companies, the change of the oerating model. The pandemic context has accelerated trends and changed habits, determined managers to invest heavily in IT infrastructure and digital solutions, taking advantage of every opportunity.
“The fact that the employees learned, during this period, to use new solutions and technologies, in order to make their activities more efficient and to be more productive, was << a win-win situation >>. Even if we return to a way of working that balances work and meetings in person with elements of work from home, companies have seen the benefits of a digital solution and will not return to the cumbersome processes of the past. This trend towards digitalization will be maintained in the long run and will be increasingly accelerated, new solutions for business process automation will be developed “, adds Anca Cîrstoiu.
IT solutions that will be indispensable for companies in the next period
According to Wizrom specialists, ERP will be an increasingly important solution in the coming period, especially for companies in full development and in the process of digitization. The benefits of this solution are numerous, given that ERP integrates the most important systems in a single IT platform, providing access to all the data that employees need to work efficiently and without interruption. Although the implementation of this software requires a certain investment, in the long run, the company obtains a number of gains, including: eliminating errors in operational processes, streamlining activities, automating them, and quick access to information.
Many companies have implemented or are preparing to implement ERP software to help them simplify business process functions, provide better management of financial resources and, at the same time, allow internal departments to establish a more productive collaboration. efficiency.
Also, more and more players have turned their attention in recent months to IT solutions for managing HR activities and recording timesheets. The modules of such IT solutions cover all aspects of the employee-employer relationship and provide an overview of the human resources within a company.
Last but not least, in the next period there will be more and more emphasis on customizing IT solutions, many managers realizing that a generic solution does not give them all the benefits they need. The solutions that Wizrom implements are customized, taking into account several factors: the size of the organization, the specifics of the industry, location, business objectives, way of working, already existing software solutions, etc. Standardized software versions cannot provide maximum efficiency, especially for customers with complex businesses.
Following the trend of developed countries in the West, the services segment is on an upward trend in recent years, and digital solutions are a support for continuing this positive dynamic.
