However, many don’t know where to start. Mount Arbor's Digital Discovery audit is an invaluable tool that enables companies to unlock the true potential of digital transformation in their business by providing them with a comprehensive evaluation of their existing systems, processes, and technologies. By closely examining each one individually, businesses can gain new insights on how to leverage digital solutions to their advantage – leading to streamlined operations and improved outcomes for customers and the organisation alike.

What's included in a digital audit?

Our digital audit inspects the current value of your online and offline assets, and the technologies supporting your business growth. We look at the customer experience, the employee experience, your market, and the overall business. Through this examination, we can determine if your business is using digital to its fullest potential and what actions can be taken in order to transition you to more efficient and better performing digital systems and processes. Additionally, our audit will include an assessment of offline processes with the aim of uncovering automation opportunities or any other methods that could improve workflow efficiency and growth.

When considering your digital presence, it is important to think about every time a customer interacts with your team or your brand through digital channels. This is not exclusive to your digital marketing channels such as social media or digital advertising channels. You've also got to consider sales, customer success and operations as potential customer touch-points in your digital journey, and build accordingly.

Can you explain the process that Mount Arbor follows for conducting a digital audit?

We use a combination of industry best practices, market intelligence and a thorough exploration of your current processes and technologies to ensure that our recommendations are tailored for your specific business needs. We also take into account the commercial objectives, competitive landscape and resources available at your organisation before making any suggestions on how to move forward with digital transformation. Finally, we will review the data collected and provide a comprehensive report that outlines recommendations and potential areas of improvement.

The entire process takes about 8 weeks to complete.

How to Prepare for the Digital Discovery Audit

Preparing for a Digital Discovery audit allows companies to maximise the potential of their digital transformation journey. The best way to get ready for any audit is to map out the processes in your organisation that use technology, and be aware of where automation already exists. Also look at anywhere you are repeating processes or tasks on a regular basis, even if technology isn't involved. For example, your salespeople might regularly have to input information to your CRM using a manual process, adding hours to their weekly workload that could be replaced by automation technology.

Gather any relevant data such as how long it takes staff members to complete processes, and analyse the current systems used in your workflow. Knowing the methods you employ currently and what tools have been used in your workflow will help Mount Arbor better identify opportunities to improve digital efficiency and provide advice on areas of improvement. Being able to accurately convey these details during the consultation process will assist Mount Arbor in maximising your company's return on investment.
