 Digital Adoption Model 

In line with the topic of modernisation and the adoption of new technologies, AlphaBiz provided a model which showcases the three main factors that businesses want to improve when they begin implementing technologies: Control, performance, and insight.

Platform Technologies  

One of the many challenges that businesses in METS face when wanting to begin a digital transformation is having to consider the legacy systems already in place. A solution that does not require a major overhaul of current technologies or systems within the operations are platform technologies.  

As a provider of this specific solution, TOKN discussed how different systems can be integrated into a platform technology which can be accessed both online and offline on different devices such as phones, tablets, or desktops.
