New Years Resolutions for 2014

Written on the 24 January 2014 by Macmillans Waller Fry - Accountants in Maitland

Around this time, every year people draw up a list of resolutions that they wish to achieve in the New Year.

The New Year offers a chance to reflect on the past year and focus on performing better in the year ahead- not just personally, but also in business.

Here are some New Year’s resolutions to get started on in 2014:

Put it all in the Cloud

More businesses will be shifting their IT infrastructures to the Cloud in 2014 as the online storage becomes cheaper, more reliable, and the connection to the Cloud becomes faster.

Cloud storage allows businesses to be nimble, efficient and cost-effective. It provides the flexibility of anywhere access and can be more secure  than any security device a company can offer.

Adapt to mobile

2014 will see a significant increase in customers accessing websites from their mobile.

Businesses need to adapt their website to the more compact screen size of contemporary devices.

This will help users access the company easily and more frequently, and ensure the business keeps up to date with current trends.

Review the marketing plan

The New Year is a good time to review the businesses marketing plan and identify new ways to reach the  target market.

2014 is a good time to increase the focus on social media and consider adding more interactive tools to the businesses website, such as videos  or blogs.

Legislative framework

Businesses can expect legislative change and compliance regulations in 2014. For example, the new Privacy Act in March 2014 represents the biggest change to privacy laws in the last 25 years.

It is a good idea to begin preparing for these changes sooner, rather than later, to ensure the business is continually compliant with the law.
