How to use digital technology to reduce costs

Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 16-Nov-2021 16:53:26

In the third chapter of our Ultimate Guide to Boosting Business Value Through Online Activity ebook, we discuss how to take advantage of digital technology to reduce costs.

Modern technology is allowing businesses to scale, and increase their profit margins as a result.

One example we discuss in the ebook is a construction-based client who is using technology to extract real-time data about their current projects.

Technologies like GPS tracking and cloud-based ERP software provide much closer oversight of projects, helping business owners save time and money and, ultimately, drive business value.

How to engage with customers and suppliers online

Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 03-Nov-2021 08:00:00

In this week's blog I'm sharing Chapter 1 of our new ebook: Ultimate guide to boosting business value through online activity.

In Chapter 1 I tell the story of a business that has over the past 10 years 'supercharged' its network of clients and contacts using online and digital technologies.

That business is us: JPAbusiness.

Over the past decade we've transitioned from receiving at least 80% of our work via word-of-mouth and personal referrals, to now receiving 70% of our work through online channels.

We still receive plenty of inquiry and work via personal referrals and that's important for building and maintaining our network but our online engagement has allowed us to supercharge that network.

How often should you have your business valued? [video]

Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 06-Oct-2021 02:00:00

Valuations are extremely useful management tools for business owners looking to maximise their current business performance and long-term value.

b) detracting from that value.

My advice is that, if your business is greater than five years old, you should have it valued on a reasonably regular basis, say every 2–3 years depending on your growth track and the external environment the business is experiencing.
