At least 30 business representatives in Ghana benefited from this year’s mini conference organized by Sage, to educate business owners and representatives on how to take advantage of technology to increase business outputs.
Dubbed: “Future-Proof Your Business”, the event which took place at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, covered the use of business management software solutions like Sage Evolution as strategic tools to propel business growth.
Addressing the event, Sage Regional Director for West Africa, Magnus Mmonwu, indicated that Sage would continue to provide robust software solutions to fuel the growth of businesses in Africa.
Mr Mmonwu noted that: “the world of business is evolving and it is necessary for software solutions providers like Sage, to also evolve,” adding that, the company was investing in R&D to meet the ever changing business demands.
According to Magnus, “Sage sells solutions not just software. Our golden aim is to help you grow in this ever dynamic world of business without breaking your bank account,” he said and added that Sage solutions are preferable in the market because of their excellent features.
The features, according to the Sage Regional Director for West Africa, included price, flexibility, speed, excellent tax compliance functionalities and user-friendly interface.
Papa Arthurst, Director of Chuck Solutions, speaking on the topic “It’s Time To Get Help”, expressed worry about the failure of some Ghanaian companies to adapt technology as a competitive tool.
Mr Arthurst, who was the Keynote Speaker said: “Relying on the old ways of doing business, is a losing battle.”
He explained that in an evolving business space, it was only appropriate for business owners to identify new tools and new opportunities, and use them to their advantage.
Mr Arthurst could not fathom why businesses stay unconcern even in a fast moving business world, and get kicked out in competition.
“We need to have it in mind that we are in a dynamic world and we cannot survive unless we stay dynamic.”
He advised that for businesses to get the best out of technological changes, it was prudent to consider: “Whether or not the change can fit in the company culture, policies and systems.”
“You must also check if the change can help you achieve your goals. This is very important. This is a wakeup call to all businesses. Technology has come to stay; all we need is to take advantage of it.”
