Small to mid-size business owners often wear a lot of hats in their company, but when it comes to sound financial management they know the importance of hiring experienced staff and using a proven software.
During startup, the go-to programs, like QuickBooks, Excel, and even Outlook, provided more than adequate means to perform daily tasks. Unfortunately, though, each program functions in isolation from the other with multiple windows and tabs open. This can increase the risk of data entry errors.
What’s more, business decisions relied on historic versus real-time data; the latter represents the hallmark of today’s ERP systems with its ability to integrate, populate and monitor operations for more intuitive decision-making.
But what are the priorities in 2015 among IT professionals, and what are the issues challenging businesses? According to a Forbes-posted infographic, 58% of owners are using cloud services for managing customer-vendor “relationships.” In fact, customer relationships rank “#4” on the list.
That’s why it makes sense to consider ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics ERP/CRM software, particularly when purchased through a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, like Technology Management Concepts. Not only are sales teams better able to close deals, but they are in good stead to nurture those all-important customer relationships—now and in the future.
Dynamics software allows real-time monitoring of the complete product cycle, from material procurement and shipping to warehousing and distribution to the customer’s door.
Today, it’s not just about installing several software solutions in the hopes of customizing to fit a business’s needs. What’s needed is a single, database management system to control costs, open more selling opportunities while ultimately improving the bottom line.
