Technology and business go hand in hand. These days, you can pretty much run a business from your computer. Well, you can if you have all the right software installed.
Keeping that in mind read on for a look at the best software for your small business needs.
Your small business is bound to need some software to help with all the accounting. There’s no way you can do it all by hand. Some people try and work around this and use a spreadsheet app to do their accounting. But, it’s way harder, you’re better off just buying accountancy software. There’s plenty of it out there, the most popular of which are probably FreshBooks and Unanet. What’s great about accountancy software is that it makes things simple. Managing your books has never been easier. They all come with very clear layouts that make it easy to look at your accounts. Plus, most accountancy software is available on the cloud too. So, you can do your accounting on the go. This makes it easier for you to be more productive and get things done on time. Your business computer needs to have some accountancy software installed; it’s a must have.
The majority of businesses are going to do a lot of casual office work. I’m talking about typing up documents or creating spreadsheets. For this, they’ll need office software. And, what better place to look that Microsoft Office. With Microsoft Office you get Word, Excel, Powerpoint, you name it. All the office software you need, packed into one downloadable package. This is basic business software, but it’s also essential business software. Of course, it can take people a while to learn how to use some of this software, particularly Excel. I don’t know why, but a lot of people struggle with it. So, if you want to get the most out of your office software, consider an Excel training course. Naturally, if you’re an Excel whizz but can’t use Powerpoint to save your life, get trained up in that department instead! Just make sure you can use all the office software that you download.
A lot of businesses will work to a schedule. They may even have specific dates that they need to get things done by. If you’re a business owner, no doubt you’ll have lots of things to do throughout a working week. So, it makes sense that you have some scheduling software to keep everything organised. You can use cloud-based software like FieldAware to schedule any appointments or meetings. Software like this is so good for a small business. It can help you stay on top of things and ensure you don't forget anything. It’s so much easier to work when you have a schedule laid out in front of you. You know exactly when things have to be done or if you have to meet with a client/customer. Also, because it's on the cloud, you can check your schedule wherever you go, so long as you have a device with internet access.
