In comparison with their mid- to large-sized counterparts, small business have often been ignored by technology vendors when it comes to new product releases. However, with the widespread use of the Internet, even large technology vendors are beginning to realize the untapped potential in offering small businesses their technology products and services. This is enabling small businesses to capitalize on technologies typically only available to large business, and unleash an era of unprecedented growth. Investing in hosted technology services such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management), virtual phone services, sales force automation, and hosted software offerings ranging from word processing, spreadsheets, e-mail, and accounting can provide an affordable way for small business to focus on their specific products or service offerings.
Think and act big. After all, now is the time that the tools for big-business growth are finally within reach of small-business owners. Harprit Singh Inventor, Innoport® Unified Communications Services CEO, Intellicomm Philadelphia
