I’m a little bit obsessed with tech and software over here. I love a good gadget, and anything that improves efficiency is a good thing in my books! That’s why business software is so important, especially for new startups. If it slows you down or distracts you it could cost you money. And we all know that startups need to make the most of every last penny. That’s why the smartest new businesses use software to keep things running smoothly.
Read on for some of the most useful types of software as you launch your small biz.
As I said before, every small business and startup needs to make the most of their cash flow. Budgets are always tight, and you’ll want to account for every penny. More importantly, you don’t want to spend every night pouring over the accounts, and tweaking spreadsheets. It distracts you from the core aspect of your business. With that in mind, invest in a powerful accounting software. It will manage your incomings and outgoings. It will keep track of your finances, and help you prepare it all for tax at the end of the year.
When it comes to business, the most tiresome tasks are administrative. Keeping the calendars up to date, sending and receiving invoices, etc. All these jobs dominate our to-do list, and drive down productivity. There are plenty of office admin software solutions you can integrate into your company Take advantage of them.
I love the way that social media has changed the way we market to our customers. It gives us chance to build a real connection and relationship. But, it’s a nightmare to maintain a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Snapchat! Looking after every channel is a full time job. But, in the absence of hiring a social media manager, look at social media management software. Something like Hootsuite lets you manage all your channels, schedule posts, and monitor analytics across the board.
Have I missed any essential pieces of software?
