Solutions to digitize your company
First of all, before undertaking this type of revolution, within the organization, it must be taken into account that the first thing that must change is the mentality of the entire organization, that is, managers and employees. Digital Transformation is one of the fundamental pieces to promote the culture of innovation and the basis for organizations to prosper. However, if people do not buy into these changes, these types of projects will be doomed to failure.
For all these reasons, before starting digitization, it would be convenient for a specialized company to carry out a consultancy of the organization, to detect the processes and/or areas for improvement. In the event that this cannot be carried out, due to lack of budget or time, it is essential to carry out a realistic self-analysis on the company’s points of improvement.
From this review, we can group digitization solutions into 10 areas:
Website and internet presence
This is an essential first solution to be able to have a presence in the digital world and make your products or services known. It is important that your website reflects the identity of your brand and highlights those aspects that make you different.
In addition, to have an attractive design, it is necessary that people can find you easily, for this, good SEO positioning is key, as well as that the web be a responsive web (it can be viewed on all types of devices), have good performance when loading and have plugins.

If you have a physical store and want to make the leap to selling all over the world, in addition to publicizing your brand through your website, it must offer the possibility of buying and selling your products and/or services through payment. with digital media. This is the creation of an e-commerce.
As pointed out by EAE Business School, in its article “tipsforcreating a successful e-commerce“, several factors must be taken into account:
- Added value: You have to identify the differential value of your business, just as you do with a physical business. It seeks to stand out, be unique and inimitable.
- Customer Centric: Make life easier for the user. They are the priority, so navigation and purchase have to be simple.
- Collaborate: surround yourself with software and platform partners that you trust and that can provide you with the best service and the greatest complicity in the long term.
- Check-point: You have to set goals in phases and gradually adapt e-commerce, promoting those aspects that work and discarding those that don’t.
- Keep Calm: An e-commerce is not going to be Amazon. You have to be clear that everything takes a process and this is not usually short.
- Adaptability: You have to understand that your business, if until now it was physical, will now be multi-channel. Now you have more factors that influence your business and also more opportunities.
- Multi-devices: Purchases by app or smartphones are the basis of online purchases. Your channel must be adapted to this technology.

Social Media Management
Many companies think that the management of social networks is something simple, but for this management to be effective and bear fruit, there must be a prior analysis behind it, a definition of the strategy that we want to follow, planning of the publications, knowledge of our buyer person, as well as the monitoring of the results and the adaptation of the strategy based on said results.
The first step is to establish the social networks where we want to influence, taking into account your own business. In other words, there are social networks that are more important depending on the sector where you are. For example, a fashion e-commerce has a higher priority in the use of Instagram than in Linkedin. Despite this, today social networks are transversal and it is convenient not to neglect any flank at the same time that we have to know our capacity to cover all of them.
Therefore, it is important to know where our audience is. For this reason, despite there being some indications that make you suppose that one network will be more important to you, others should not be ruled out. Many times trial and error is the best way to discover what works and it will also help you learn.
However, if you are looking for a partner to accompany you in the discovery of social networks, in INNOVAmee you can find an ally. In the following document we explain how we can help you.
A CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) is a tool that allows you to manage customers, both old and new, as well as the leads you are dealing with.
Many companies consider implementing this tool once they have reached a certain volume or because they are no longer capable of adequately managing their clients. However, it is a very useful tool for standardizing processes within new companies as it allows forecasts to be generated and thus a roadmap to be created.
Among the main functions that we can highlight from a CRM:
- Client management: through the software, you will be able to consult the client’s information, purchases and possible projects.
- Lead Management: you will be able to carry out commercial management so that they become clients by following up on opportunities.

Business Intelligence and Analytics
Business Intelligence systems are those that seek to optimize decision-making based on the evaluation of the company’s internal data. Once we have the grouped data, we will be able to analyze the information and make decision-making faster, more effective and with better results.

The analytical business part is responsible for predicting future behavior taking into account past trends and metrics.
At INNOVAmee we have the necessary tools for decision-making to be based on data, clearly and precisely. If you need to know what tools you could use, we leave you the following document for more information.
