17 Dec

Uncategorized

2020 was a year that no one would have predicted, or for that matter, ever imagined. While we all hope 2021 is a better year, there will be lasting impacts on businesses, from how companies manage their supply chains to how they will operate in a world with less face-to-face interaction in areas such as sales.

We do believe 2020 was a pivotal year in moving companies forward in embracing cloud-based solutions to help them manage integral parts of their business. As we look to the new year, Accelalpha’s experts have made predictions on business and technology trends that will define 2021. We would love to hear your thoughts on these and learn about any trends that you have identified.
