Is Your Business Struggling with Obsolete Tech? What do Walmart, Chick-Fil-A, BMW, Comcast, and Ford Motor Company have in common? They’re all family-owned businesses that managed to make it big. Companies that have jumped through the hurdles of time and kept up with the unprecedented challenges that today’s economy brings.
Not all businesses have been as fortunate, however. In fact, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many family-owned businesses have struggled to stay afloat while others have sunk entirely. What’s one of the biggest issues keeping struggling companies at bay? How do you keep your Your Business from struggling with Obsolete Tech?
A 2021 report found that family businesses are struggling with implementing digital technology and creating environmental sustainability. Often, generational businesses go in one of two directions. The first is finding longevity and allowing the entity to thrive for many years. In today’s digital world, that means staying on top of the latest technologies (and trends) for relevancy and competitiveness.
On the other hand, some businesses turn their back on technology and continue down the road that they’ve been on since day one. This often creates tension among the older and younger generations. Perhaps the younger generations see the value that innovation and tech can bring to the table.
Businesses today need updated technology in order to adapt to change. It might seem risky with all the cybersecurity threats and ransomware out there, but it’s a step that is critical for long-term success.
After all, you can’t do what’s always been done and expect a different result. On that note, let’s look at a few of the benefits of implementing technology as a family-owned business:

Cloud-based solutions are essential for generational businesses for a number of reasons:
Overall, cloud-based solutions can help generational businesses to be more efficient, flexible, and secure, which are all key factors in building a successful and sustainable business.
As previously mentioned, there seems to be quite a bit of tension between the younger and older generations of today’s family-owned businesses. New technology can bring enhanced communication efforts through valuable insights/analytics and continuous involvement from all members of your team.
While implementing new tech can be incredibly beneficial, it oftentimes proves to be confusing and time-consuming in the beginning stages. Fortunately, the IT service providers at LeadingIT can help you formulate a digital transformation strategy and walk you through the steps of implementation.
