The trend of digital transformation is seizing the markets in Brazil and the world for some years now. It’s true that many companies still hesitate in adapting to this new scenario. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic, the market as a whole was forced to digitize processes, in order not to stop operations, considering that countless companies have chosen to work remotely.

This digitization, which has been “forced” by the circumstances, will bring several benefits in the short and long term, ranging from improved performance, productivity and employee health, to increased process visibility and governance in the area.

In this post, we are talking about the best technologies to invest in during the quarantine.

Digital transformation driven by coronavirus

According to a report titled “World-class procurement: redefining performance in the digital era”, the digital transformation can provide savings up to 45% for the procurement area of businesses.

This information proves the importance of digitizing the supply chain – an action that many companies are being forced to take due to the pandemic.

It’s worth reminding that there’s no point in having the best technologies without the right professionals to handle them. Therefore, it’s very important to invest in and train employees for this new business model.

The SaaS technology is a facilitator for companies

Large-sized companies see the SaaS (Software as a Service) model as a facilitator in the adoption of new technologies.

A SaaS platform eliminates the need to install any programs on your equipment. The applications are all available in the cloud and can be accessed via the Internet – which is the case, for instance, of all Mercado Eletrônico’s solutions.

This enables employees to access applications remotely, regardless of the time zone and location.

Artificial intelligence to support business

The benefits brought to companies by the use of artificial intelligence are indisputable. According to this year’s forecast by Gartner, 30% of organizations will use artificial intelligence in at least one stage of their procurement processes.

This trend should generate a huge amount of data, for more assertive and customer-oriented strategies. The use of AI on a daily basis renders teams more productive and even reduces business errors considerably.

Predictive analysis with Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things is a tool that helps businesses to analyze data generated through artificial intelligence, providing market forecasts. From such predictive analysis, the company has a good overview of the business, and knows accurately the next steps to be followed.

Any company that takes advantage of this innovation will be able to foresee possible future issues, as a support to save money and time. Additionally, it will be able to customize the service according to the needs of each customer.
