Consider that the first 2 or 3 companies within an industry sector benefit by being the leader and reaping the rewards of setting new standards. Everyone else ends up playing catch up, as it becomes the norm.
Examples might include the move from developed photos to kiosk machines which are now available everywhere; or private medical companies using electronic patient records and centralising all services so the customer experience is the same regardless of which location within the group they are seen at; or perhaps stock control systems that automate the process from purchase to sales.
Sadly, IT is so often the tail that wags the dog – with organisations blindly following the trend rather than being proactive, innovative or inspirational.
Waxtie are industry leaders in business IT mentoring, strategy and infrastructure. We don’t sell hardware or software (unless specifically requested) and instead concentrate on our customer’s business needs and requirements. We look at their goals and drivers, their processes, their stakeholders and their staffing; all with a view to ensuring IT deployment is aligned with business strategy, meets expectations and provides clear and focused benefits.
According to Gartner 62% of IT projects fail because of a lack of up-front strategic planning. Whereas 100% of Waxtie projects succeed!
Waxtie lead from the front! Our customers lead from the front! So don’t put off those changes because others have not done it yet, be the leader in your market and shape what others will follow.
