Xerox have seen it all, every kind of business. Those who have achieved wild success and those who have failed miserably. With decades of experience in helping businesses succeed, Xerox are experts on what it takes to achieve great things in your sector. Here are their top 4 success tips for SME's.
1. Budgets and thoughtful spending
When planning their budgets and spending, smart business owners look not just at the money in their pocket, but at economic trends or disruptions that could impact consumer spending, labor costs, and other expenses. A recent survey from the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) found that 16% of small business owners are expecting higher sales and better business conditions in 2017 and that they’re actively planning job creation and expansions to fit those expectations. Those expansions are also likely to include investments like new equipment to help improve workflows, or changes/increases in their marketing spend.
2. Strategic business purchases
With so many new products and solutions available to help small businesses streamline their workflows and improve productivity, smart entrepreneurs are considering value beyond the box when purchasing new equipment or supplies. The right equipment won’t dominate their small office space in order to be near an internet connection. Affordability and practicality are also top-of-mind for savvy business owners, who want equipment that is easy to use, has built-in security, and that won’t be obsolete before the team has even figured out how it works.
3. Office technology designed specifically for small businesses
The common methods of doing business go beyond habits and practices. Xerox has emphasized it's ongoing commitment to improve the flow of work for small and mid-size businesses with several new product launches. These technology offerings are designed to boost productivity while cutting costs, and small enterprise owners have been quick to take notice. The new Xerox Phaser® 6510 color printer and Xerox WorkCentre® 6515 color multifunction printer are both garnering attention – and popularity – thanks to differentiated features their ease-of-use and huge potential for productivity.
4. Capture documents in 3 steps
Another game changer is the new Web Capture Service digitization tool, the only solution that automates and scans a document in just three steps for immediate use without creating files, renaming documents and importing them into an application. Sold only through Xerox channel partners, Web Capture Service can be used with any scanner regardless of brand and works with most web applications such as Microsoft Office 365, QuickBooks, Salesforce, SAP, Concur and many more.
