Digital transformation as a key factor in the internationalization of businesses

Digital transformation and internationalization are two facts that cannot be denied at this point. There are many solutions, such as Viafirma Documents, which take advantage of this situation to provide many benefits to companies. What are these benefits? What improvements can this bring to companies?

A few years ago, globalization is a concept that has settled down, and feels like this process has stopped and all borders have been diluted towards a more global world. Digital transformation has been the last step given by globalization, which perhaps goes unnoticed, but it has a great impact, since it allows companies to interact across the globe as they would with local companies.

This digital transformation  refers to changes that take place in the business process to take advantage of the benefits of digital environments. This procedure requires a broad approach to analyze each of the elements that are involved in the production process.

Within this digital transformation, digital transaction management (DTM) plays an important role. DTM is a category within the services of the cloud designed to digitally manage document-based transactions.

This eliminates the inherent frictions in transactions where there are people and documents involved. DTM seeks to implement easier, simpler, faster and more secure processes when managing documents.

Digital transformation: Mobility for the entrepreneur

In addition to the commercial or logistical barriers that may exist, one of the main reasons for businesses to take longer to go global is precisely because of the large amount of time involved in entering a new market.

It is an activity that can have many benefits, but at the same time it consumes a large amount of time and resources from the people with the busiest agendas of any organization, managers and people with the capacity of decision-making.

The European Union, the main forerunner of the digitization of companies

Through the establishment of a common standard and eliminating one of the last barriers to the construction of such digital single market, the proliferation of interactions between companies from different countries within the European framework is being achieved.

Also, through the destiny of funds to specific programs of collaboration between companies from different parts of Europe, a better knowledge and a general improvement of competitiveness for the whole community is achieved.
