Dutch companies are embracing new technologies to increase productivity and manage their employees better but are struggling with a lack of reliable information about the technology that may be of interest to them, according to a study from TomTom Telematics.

Almost three-quarters (73%) of the companies recognize the importance of technology for recruiting, retaining and motivating their employees. Companies mention increasing productivity (19%), increasing sales (18%), improving customer service (13%) and lowering operating costs (12%) as their main motivations to implement new technology.

At the same time, almost half (46%) report having trouble finding reliable advice to help them introduce new technology. Lack of relevant information from providers is the most important reason for this, according to 22 percent of respondents. Respondents also cited a lack of knowledge within the organisation (24%), finding a provider that fits the organization (15%) and additional costs (40%).
