Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), also known as ‘Social Impact’, isn’t just throwing a few quid to a charity each Christmas or sponsoring the Sales Manager’s half marathon, it’s much more than that and if implemented correctly, can have a truly positive effect on your business from improving staff motivation and productivity, through to reducing costs, improving public perception, reducing risk and increasing sales. Perhaps that’s why 64% of CEOs increased investment in Corporate Social Responsibility in 2016.
Our updated eBook explains how implementing a CSR strategy could make a positive difference to your business and the key considerations you need in place to ensure it works effectively.

Although the concept of digital transformation (aka digitisation, digitalisation or DX for short) has been around since as early as 2010, it’s really taken off in the last year, with Google searches for the term reaching a peak in November. It’s more than just a buzzword though; looking beyond the hype you can see the trend of businesses of all sizes “investing in new technology and business models with a specific focus on customer experience”. With this focus on providing the best possible customer experience (who, let’s be honest, vote with their feet) it’s obvious that businesses of all sizes must embrace DX in order to remain competitive. The good news is that, as a communications reseller, you’re in a great position to capitalise on the opportunities that businesses going through their DX journey bring because, quite simply, without connectivity DX is dead.Read More »
We’re not talking about being ready with your wellies and your sledge here. Rather, Is your business ready for any potential issues the forecasted bad weather could bring? Do you have an effective disaster recovery plan in place in case your comms go down or your staff can’t get into work? Are your customers ready?

But the smaller business can often be overwhelmed or put off investing in data analysis – after all, the thought of having to fund massive data warehouses with enough hardware and bandwidth to cater for zetabytes of data and the teams of analysts needed to interpret all of the information produced is enough to give any SME owner palpitations. Sometimes it’s less about the resources needed to make use of Big Data and more about where to begin – with data available in large quantities, how do you know that you’re working with the right data and how do you turn the insight generated into actions that will have a positive impact on the business? The good news is that it’s possible to start small with Big Data, working in an incremental way to slowly build up how you use customer data and insight to develop your customer centric sales and marketing activity that will have a positive effect on your business.Read More »
