The most important Advantages of Customizable Business Software:
Unreliable and complicated software and a lack or absence of IT equipment are among the top reasons for employee dissatisfaction and even employee turnover.
A study by Vanson Bourne and Nexthink shows that 40 percent of employees have to deal with IT problems at least once a week. This creates dissatisfaction and reduces productivity and motivation among employees and managers.
It’s time to invest in secure, flexible and well-integrated software; ideally, in software that is adaptable to your company and requirements.
Instead of serving a broad audience with more or less useful tools and features, a customizable software stack will be very specific to the needs of your employees and the exact requirements of particular industries and adaptable to the needs of your organisation. On the other hand, it will only provide the functions or modules that you and your employees or individual groups (teams) really want to use.
Customizable Software helps to increase efficiency and productivity and will give team collaboration a significant boost!
Another advantage: Customizable software can support your Employer Branding by using your company design, special layout, styles and colours. Our VNClagoon communication and collaboration platform for example offers extensive and unique branding options.
Using a complete stack of customizable business software will also help avoid data silos, when the tools are connected and data is provided from various sources. Data can easily be accessed via different tools and it can be tagged, sorted, categorized and is searchable.
Dissatisfaction with Business Collaboration Tools promotes Shadow IT!
If employees are not happy with the provided software, they will use their own tools to collaborate, even while knowing that the software is not sanctioned by their IT department.
Therefore it’s crucial to provide collaboration software that is tailored to your team’s needs to avoid Shadow IT.
How can you do this?
Involve your team in the process and make sure to get feedback!
Make sure you have a clear picture of your overall communication and collaboration strategies before starting to implement single collaboration tools one by one.
If private software (Shadow IT) is used for business communications or to send sensitive company data, or if it’s used to conduct corporate activities, considerable financial damage may result. And there are two additional problematic aspects: the location of the servers and the headquarters of the provider.
With VNClagoon you can meet IT security protocols and you can take care of security aspects to regain data sovereignty. You can scale up and down with highest flexibility, depending on your own needs and YOU can select the hosting option that suits your needs best, whether it’s in a public or private cloud, or on premise.
