How you can benefit from a digital audit

A digital audit can help you identify what’s working, and what’s not working in your business. You can save money and time by finding out ways to improve your processes while increasing employee productivity and engagement.

Here are some tips to get you started. 

Improve your processes

In business, using the phrase ‘it’s how we’ve always done it’ is the fastest way to fall behind the times. Effective processes can streamline your regular business activities and help your business run more efficiently. 

Research has found that companies lose an estimated 20–30% of their annual revenue due to inefficient processes. The financial losses caused by inefficient processes compound the longer they’re allowed to continue. A digital audit can nip these issues in the bud and can have a major positive impact on your bottom line. 

Boost productivity

Employees have reported that they spend almost an hour per working day on ineffective paperwork tasks. An audit can help uncover unnecessary tasks that are eating up your people’s time. You can find easier and faster ways to manage documents, saving your business time and allowing your staff to focus on more important tasks. 

A digital audit can also help you figure out if you need to invest in new equipment or technology. If your people are working with out of date hardware, it can lead to staff feeling frustrated and more time wasted. Shockingly, research has revealed that some office workers waste more time on slow tech than they spend on holiday.

Increased security

It’s no secret that companies are a prime target for cybercriminals and many businesses have experienced security breaches over the years. A lesser known fact is that most of these attacks had printers as their primary targets. 

A digital audit can check your hardware and software tools are configured correctly and working to protect your business from a cyber security breach. 

Future-proof your business

When your business has efficient processes in place it’s easier for your business to grow. A digital audit can help your business identify the challenges it faces and can help you find better ways to carry out repetitive and time-consuming tasks. 

As an added bonus, when the key areas of your business are streamlined, your employees will be more engaged and better equipped to focus on growing your business.
