Freelance Technology Solutions for Small Businesses

A growing number of small businesses rely on technology to increase efficiency, manage expenses, grow profitability and improve performance.
According to SMB Group’s 2015 SMB Routes to Market Study (PDF), 29 percent of all small businesses view technology as helping them to improve outcomes significantly. Keeping up with the fast pace of technological change can be difficult for the business owner already burdened with the many tasks required to keep his or her company afloat day in and day out.
To help, Small Business Trends compiled this list of nine technology categories that small businesses need to incorporate as principle applications in 2017.
They cross a broad range of functions, including mobile, marketing automation, business intelligence and social media. Some represent newer technologies while others are more established. Together, they encompass nearly everything a small business would need to gain a competitive edge in 2017 and beyond.

1. Massive Growth Makes Mobile a ‘Must-have’ Technology

Perhaps no technology has gained greater adoption or grown more quickly than mobile.In 2016, more than six billion people worldwide used at least one mobile device, a number that is expected to increase to nearly seven billion by 2020.Also significant, SimilarWeb’s State of Mobile Web US 2015 report found that approximately 56 percent of consumer traffic to the leading U.S. websites came from mobile devices.That makes mobile a “must have” technology in 2017, and businesses should incorporate its use in at least four ways: Website design, apps, payment and use of all-in-one devices.

Mobile-friendly Websites

With more and more people accessing the web via mobile, small businesses can no longer avoid making a mobile-friendly version of their website available to consumers, for two reasons:

In his Small Business Trends article “Mobile App Strategies Boost Revenues for Small Business Owners,” Scott Shane, professor of entrepreneurial studies at Case Western Reserve University, wrote, “In an increasingly mobile world, having a well-developed and well-tested mobile app turns out to be a highly effective marketing strategy that gets results.”In the past, mobile app development required someone with specialized skills. Nowadays, platforms such as Microsoft PowerApps allow non-technical users to create apps easily, so there is no excuse to do without this important technology.

Payment Methods

The use of mobile payments is on the rise, thanks to apps such as Microsoft Wallet, so it makes sense to incorporate their use as an option. Also, companies like Microsoft partner Merchant Account Solutionshave made mobile credit card readers readily available to small business users.

All In One Devices

Another aspect of mobile technology moving forward has to do with what constitutes a mobile device versus its desktop counterpart. That line is blurring thanks to devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, a 3-in-1 desktop, laptop and mobile tablet. It also comes with pen and touch screen capability, a new innovation.

2. Marketing Automation Increases Efficiency

Marketing automation software has made it easier for small businesses to conduct marketing activities with greater efficiency, removing the need to hire dedicated marketing professionals.Among its advantages are the ability to score leads, segment messages and set up processes that trigger specific responses based on actions taken by the customer.Also, automation software links seamlessly with CRM platforms, bringing marketing and sales together, providing each with a 360-degree view of the customer or prospect.CRM platforms such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 do much of the heavy lifting that previously would have been handled using manual processes.

technical Screening and Recruitment

OMG!!! Recruitment

OMG! - we're consistently dismayed, floored and angered at the resources leveraged by many of the top technical recruitment firms used to find qualified technical talent.  As a professional consultants we all would hope, and expect ,  when contacted by a recruiter; that he/she has some basic skills and information nailed down before picking up the phone to call us; for example:


  • A basic understanding of the business their clients are in
  • A basic understanding of the requirements they have been tasked to recruit for
  • The ability to converse clearly  and concisely at a business conversational level
  • A basic understanding of the applicants skills before contacting them


Serious applicants DO NOT respond - to organizations recruitment efforts  -- if the people recruiting are not qualified to speak to them; this translates to lost time and opportunities for for the client, the recruitment firm and the consultant who has just 'by the way' accepted  an assignment elsewhere.


PEOPLE CALLING OTHER PEOPLE REPRESENT THE PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE CALLING ON BEHALF OF  -- THEY ARE BOTH THAT ORGANIZATIONS FIRST IMPRESSION AND CALLING CARD -- 


We will collect and size-up your requirement and determine based on the envisioned project needs and resource expectation the characteristics and profile of your consultant. Once the profile has been created, shared with the client and consensus met  -- we proceed to simply find and secure the resource
