The digital transformation revisited
The pandemic is also the common denominator in the results of the most recent Beltug study (*). Ninety per cent of IT managers surveyed said that Covid had had an impact on digitalisation.
It is clear that companies are embracing digital transformation to meet the challenges of the ‘new normal’. This ensures the continuity of business operations, day-to-day operations, shop floor processes, customer service, document processing and other forms of communication”. In the results of the survey, it is striking that only 56% of the companies have a proactive approach.
Kristof Depuydt, Business Development Manager Retail at Anrova Solutions can only confirm this: “Under the influence of Covid, many SMEs have started a webshop. However, it turns out that many of these webshops are not linked to the underlying processes such as warehouse and invoice management, and often the need for a higher-performance ERP system pops up.
Fortunately, 8 in 10 companies do have the intention of working on the digital transformation. However, it appears that scaling it up is the bottleneck. In addition, many companies are reluctant to invest in plans that require large capital expenditures.
Taking a chance is not always a good idea. After all, many business applications offer a great deal of flexibility and allow changes to be made for the sake of growth. Eddy Dobbelaere, CEO Anrova Solutions: “SAP Business One is an affordable, user-friendly and scalable ERP solution for running different types of businesses. As a company grows, SAP Business One can be expanded to meet the challenges of the business or industry.”
