Digital technology is no longer a luxury — it's a necessity. Today, the IT department, whether it's internal or outsourced, plays a crucial role at every organization. All businesses, regardless of their industry, must rely on technology in order to be successful.
One example is the pest control industry. According to an article in the online publication Food Processing, pest control agencies that work in food and beverage facilities are increasing adoption of digital technology to better manager their client affairs and provide stronger customer service.
The pest control industry isn't traditionally associated with innovative enterprise technologies such as cloud computing, but times are changing. Ron Harrison, director of technical services at Orkin Commercial Services in Atlanta, spoke with the news source about this trend.
"Better monitoring through electronics was being talked about five or six years ago, but the sensors and other hardware were too cumbersome and expensive," he said. "More affordable electronics and the ability to store data in the cloud is driving down costs and leading to greater acceptance of technology."
While non-traditional organizations may be more apt to adopt technology, they likely don't have the resources to manage their systems in-house. This requires partnerships with MSPs and VARs who can provide the products and services all companies need to leverage modern technology in the workplace.
These organizations must understand, however, that customers who are just now adopting business technology solutions will require additional support and training to ensure their systems are properly implemented and used. This is where a company like VAR Staffing can help. We help VARs and MSPs by identifying and recruiting the talent needed to set companies up as they enter the technological age.
