Modern corporate theory mandates the adoption of new technology in order to streamline organizational workflow, and take advantage of the digital data deluge. IT and data management software holds the potential to increase efficiency, and transition to a paperless environment. However, the benefits of technology come hand in hand with the need for continuous updates. This brings about two types of burdens; the upfront costs of technology, as well as hidden admin costs.
Platinion GmbH, a subsidiary of The Boston Consultancy Group will be presenting their expertise on cost cutting measures at this year’s 8th ETOT.
