At the beginning of every new year, people set resolutions to improve their wellbeing and life. Just like the personal resolutions we make for ourselves; businesses should be making resolutions to further their operations and reach their business goals.
- Invest in automation
- Don’t skimp on marketing
- Ensure employees are happy
Every organization looking to grow should set resolutions that cover these three key topics and find the right technology that can help you get there.
Resolution #1: Invest in automation
Every business should make it a goal to work smarter, not harder. This is why business processes need to be automated. Investing in the right technology to allow for automated processes such as collecting customer data, keeping track of transactions, or paying vendors directly is the right step in achieving this resolution.
How to get there:
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a centralized platform that does it all. Small and medium sized businesses will find that the power of Dynamics 365 meets all their business needs and allows for growth. Automation is one of the single biggest aspects the platform has to offer. By investing in automation, businesses can reduce the number of human-made errors, ensure accurate reporting and data, and never miss important deadlines or customer acquisition opportunities.

Resolution #2: Don’t skimp on marketing
Investing time and effort in social media and digital marketing is another area that most businesses want to pursue but find it difficult to do. It takes time to develop social media campaigns, and especially developing messaging that resonates to target audiences. However, once a campaign is ready to launch, technology and automation comes in handy.
How to get there:
Dynamics 365 Customer Service offers meaningful insights into sales, marketing and customer service. The marketing application can schedule your social media posts, eliminating the need to expend resources through manually posting. You can set the day and time to best capture your audience’s attention, and schedule social media posts weeks to months in advance. Additionally, you can utilize the powerful email builder and customer journey features to create email campaigns for audiences who want to stay in communication with you.

Resolution #3: Ensure employees are happy
Happy employees are engaged and productive! What the pandemic reinforced in recent years is that employees want their employers to do more than just give them free snacks or throw a weekly office party. Employees want active policies in place to avoid burnout and foster their career growth. Businesses must evaluate their company culture and policies to prevent quiet quitting and retain talent.
How to get there:
Human Capital Management (HCM) technology is what payroll technology has evolved into. Now instead of technology that just processes employee pay, HCM has become a centralized way to foster employees and keep them engage. HCM allows businesses to communicate with employees, give them access to tools and information, and show the full lifecycle of an employee.
