How Businesses Can Use Smart Technology Investments to Move Ahead of Their Competition: Free E-book
In the face of economic volatility, businesses wonder how to manage their technology roadmap and make better investments amid macroeconomic uncertainty and volatility. While inflation and fears of a recession put pressure on businesses, more than half of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are still planning to increase their year-on-year tech spending in 2023.
“Most businesses are wondering if they need to adjust their tech investments right now,” said Russ Keithley, Chief Banking Officer at Coastal Community Bank. “The truth is that investing in technology can help streamline processes and return significant business value. A dedicated, local banking partner can help companies to explore if equipment purchases are right for their business — and consider available financing options.”
The answer to managing tech investments during an economic downturn is accelerating through it with strategic investments that drive differentiation and growth. Cutting back to “weather the storm” is a dangerous strategy, as businesses may emerge into a disrupted market where competitors have surged ahead and stolen market share. Accelerating through the storm, on the other hand, involves making tech investments to pick up market share and potentially disrupt the market.
