Upgraded tools and technology ensure businesses have the higher accuracy and speed needed to fulfill more orders and surpass expectations. Businesses with dependable computers, wireless devices, printers, tablets, software, and RFID solutions help refresh the order fulfillment process and prevent disruptions. Despite this, studies indicate 36.8% of employees say their company’s technology is outdated. Outdated technology can hinder productivity as studies estimate workers spend an average of 520 hours a year on repetitive tasks that could easily be automated with updated devices. Outdated technology costs businesses around $13,000 per employee annually, which equates to a $1.8 trillion annual loss. Additionally, outdated technology leads to other issues like:
- Equipment failure
- Increased operational costs
- Risk of downtime
- Higher maintenance contract costs
- Inability to meet rising consumer demands
Businesses suffering from just one of these issues could risk overall supply chain productivity and inflated expenses. More reliable equipment that replaces legacy technology can be harder to find, but businesses need it to meet consumer demands and avoid failure and high costs.
