CEO Survey Reveals 4 Ways Technology Can Boost Productivity for Your Small Business
The economy is on a downward trajectory — and yet many small and midsize businesses are continuing to invest in technology. Why? Because technology can serve as a powerful driver of productivity and growth, even when times are tough.
In the Q4 2018 Vistage CEO Confidence Index survey, which polled 1,257 CEOs from small and midsize businesses, leaders identified productivity as a top decision-making priority (No. 3) for 2019. More than half (52 percent) of CEOs surveyed said they are willing to invest between 1-4 percent of their revenue on technology. Only 12 percent said they would not invest in business applications at all this year.
Not all technology investments reap the same productivity returns. Our research suggests that CEOs should leverage technology in these four areas to gain a productivity boost.
