Welcome to the Green Giant blog where we'll be sharing our insights and advice to help your business grow. 
 
An SME is only ever as successful as its own processes. After all, in many cases, your processes are all that separates you from your competitors. If you run a business, your USP isn’t necessarily what you do so much as how you do it. It’s your processes that provide the bare bones on which the customer or client experience is built.

Do you ever feel like you can’t see the wood for the trees? Does the fate of your business ever feel like it’s been left to the whims of chance? Do you ever feel like, no matter how hard you try to maintain control of your business’ operations, marketing strategy and cash flow, you’re sitting atop a bucking bronco waiting for the inevitable moment when it throws you loose? 
 
The role of IT in business has evolved in a very significant manner over the past 30 years, not least over the last decade. Virtually all companies now utilise and heavily rely on IT in a very big way. 
 
Unfortunately, many of them continue to follow the outdated protocol of running their IT infrastructure as a separate entity. In today’s climate, it simply HAS to be embedded within the company’s DNA.

Here at Green Giant Consulting, we go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are more than names and numbers on spreadsheets. We want to get to know our clients, overdeliver, and collaborate while maintaining high levels of communication.

As your business continues to develop, it can be a challenge to keep track of your original small business goals. When you first emerge onto the market, you will likely be working with a comparatively small customer base. At this point, it’s a lot easier to ensure that you are providing a quality service with an excellent level of customer support and interaction. However, that changes as your business expands. 
As an entrepreneur, you always want to keep up to date with what your consumers and other businesses want. In the current world of modern business, people expect the Amazon experience. More and more businesses and consumers are expecting the ability to submit orders electronically and track them online. It’s become increasingly commonplace to send delivery confirmations, invoices, and all other transactions online as opposed to relying on traditional postal options. The process is called electronic data interchange (EDI), and employing EDI could give you a competitive advantage over your rivals. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using EDI for your business. 
 
In order to succeed, businesses must create something, monetise it and maintain its value. In doing so, they can protect their products and services, identify their value and continue to bring in profits. However, the way in which companies create, monetise and retain value changes over time. 
New technology has revolutionised the workplace and given businesses more scope to compete in a global market. With the ability to send documents around the world in seconds, liaise face-to-face with colleagues abroad and work from any location, cloud-based computing has increased flexibility in the workplace and enabled companies to operate on a larger scale. 
Having a business continuity plan in place is vital for operational success. Should your company be affected by any unforeseen issues, a business continuity plan will enable you to continue functioning without a loss of investment or income. 
A project will never be completely risk-free. Indeed, risk will always be an element of a project process, an unavoidable component that you have to be prepared for. You always need to think about what could go wrong with your project. Unfortunately, there are too many businesses that are not putting the right level of focus on risk management. Instead, teams ignore this completely and hope for the best without preparing for the worst. So, how do you know if you are effectively managing your project risks?
