Our Latest News Bites, Podcasts and Members

Early yesterday (Tuesday June 23 Aussie time) something was released that I get excited about, Apple developer updates. If you are part of our email base who is reading this on an android iApologise (It’s ok, that is the last of the jokes.)

The first virtual World Wide Developers Conference gave us a taste of what’s to come as part of iPhone, iPad and more with tech giant Apple. The iOS 14 comes with a stack of new features including a redesigned home page with more data and sizes. The App library is a new way to view all of your apps easier and there is full picture in picture support. This means you can stream from Netflix or Amazon Prime while you type messages. Very cool during a virtual group watching of Laugh Out Loud Australia.

Siri can send an audio messages now too and there are features to assist with voice translation when travelling. The Message app gets an overhaul and this will make group messages even more immersive. Carkey (not the colour) is a new feature used to unlock your car and start it with your iPhone! App clips is new and will have a huge impact on business and in particular retail and hospitality. Oh and when your iPhone rings, it will appear as a notification, rather than interrupt your whole screen!!

Why am I sharing this with you? Well I get excited about this… But more so, if you are in business and are looking for a tech edge, embracing new technology and new features will put your business at the forefront when it is launched. No one remembers Melbourne Cup place getters…

I’ll return to my geek corner for now.

Our Latest News Bites, Podcasts and COVID-19 changing business

We know COVID-19 has changed businesses. Whether it’s working from home, looking at your digital options for running businesses or having a fine tooth comb over your operations. This pandemic has brought on the biggest change to how we are looking at our business, some for the first time in their existence. One thing we noticed though is that the humble letterbox drop had ceased with our major supermarkets. The panic buy and the availability of stock paying a role in the mailbox receiving less of a direct form of pretty pictures and serving suggestions.

One of the big retailers however in recent days has dropped the print version of its catalogue and is now embarking on a digital only version. The digital era perhaps brought on more quicker than first thought. Big W will put more of its budget and resources to digital content. Citing, according to The Australian; that consumer behaviour has changed as a result of the recent health crisis. The retailer will move its investments to where it sees its consumers trends shifting.

So big business is shifting. Are you noticing the difference and are you going to shift too? Do you have the capability to put more into your digital assets. (I know a team that could assist)
