No matter what business you’re in, chances are it is becoming increasingly complex and the world is changing faster by the day. Technology is omnipresent from your logistic center or manufacturing line to boardroom.
Everybody talks about the digital transformation. A lot of businesses have their data since decades in databases and processes are running on proven business backends. The big question is how can that become more digital?
The place where the digital transformation really changes the game is replacing existing paper processes. Here businesses have a lot of potential to accelerate the process and avoid errors due during manual input or manual coping of data.
A simple example for this are airline tickets. In today’s world most traveler carry the ticket on their phone and watch. This does not only save trees and is better for the environment as printing and shipping is eliminated. This gives the traveler a better experience as it allows more than just access to the right plane.
With the digital version of the ticket the traveler can get reminders for check-in, boarding and even gate change. Further he has all tickets for a whole journey in one place. The ticket is aware of the current time and shows on the travel day directly on the login screen for easy access. So, no more long searches at the airport.
