How Technology Impacts Agency Value
Speaker: Steve Anderson

Technology is no longer just a backroom activity that keeps computers running. Tech should be a profit center. What software agencies use, what tools, integrations, processes, and data agencies harness are all critical in driving growth and profit. With the right tech, your agency will continue to thrive.

Your business has a tech stack. Does it currently include the right solutions for your agency? Are you using all the features you should be? Do you have processes to get the most out of that investment? To provide a fantastic customer experience? To become more profitable?

We will dive into what tech agencies really use, who uses what, and how satisfied they are with it
