Implementing organizational change can sometimes feel like fighting an uphill battle, especially when it comes to the widespread change associated with digital transformation. You need to ensure everyone is on the same page, which means the expectations, responsibilities and value are made clear to each person. Communication and change management strategies can make change much less daunting for organizations. In this blog post we’ll be looking at some of the reasons why change is so hard for us and giving you the tools and strategies you need to respond to these challenges.

If you weren't doing your present job, what job would you like to be doing?
Good question – because being in my 16th year with PrintFleet, I can say I haven’t given that question much thought. I feel as though I have the personality that puts people at ease, because I have complete strangers stop me in public and start conversations with me. I would probably be great in a medical facility where people would typically feel nervous and unsure. I would like to be the person to give them that hug and let them know it’s going to be ok, and be able to answer all of their questions and concerns. I think I would find that very rewarding, and I think everyone should find their job rewarding.

In our last post we looked at digital transformation – what it is, the benefits to businesses and what it means in the context of managed print services. We didn’t answer one very important question, though. How do you get started? Digital transformation is a huge undertaking and requires extensive planning on the part of businesses. Before you start anything, you should conduct an audit of your current business practices to see where you stand. This is called measuring your digital readiness. In this blog post, we’ll be breaking down this key concept so you can see how prepared your company is.
For many organizations, changing established processes can be difficult. We know the old saying: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This polarized thinking is problematic, though, because businesses are complex and processes don’t have to be ‘broken’ to be improved. Digital transformation is one of the most effective ways to update processes and drive efficiency to stay ahead in today’s competitive markets. In this blog post we’ll be focusing on the basics of digital transformation and exploring how companies can leverage technology to transform their business.

There’s a famous line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” that goes, “Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.” What does this mean and what does it have to do with data? If you just replace ‘water’ with ‘data,’ this statement rings true for many businesses today. Many organizations collect large quantities of data, from sales to social media data, but unless they have the tools to analyze the information, they can’t benefit from it despite being surrounded by it. And that’s the point Coleridge is trying to make. Data, data everywhere, but no insights to be had.

Describe what you do in 25 words or less.
I manage PrintFleet’s partnerships with our OEM Clients. I make sure that we continuously deliver value to our biggest accounts.
Data analytics has broad applications in information technology and beyond. With simple, easy-to-use tools that collect and visualize everything from social media data to sales data, the barrier to entry for analytics has never been lower. Businesses and organizations that are not using these tools for a more data-driven approach to their operations are at a competitive disadvantage.
There’s no denying that data is an incredibly valuable resource for your business, but unless you have the data analytics tools necessary to collect, process and visualize that data, the value can get lost in translation. We recently looked at how you can use alerts and reports to provide more proactive device management for your customers. In this post we’ll be exploring how the dynamic views in PrintFleet Optimizer (PFO) can give you a high-level sense of how your print fleet is doing and also drill down to assess individual customer environments.
