Every business has their own unique set of processes and procedures. Some of these apply to sales, while other processes apply to production. The one thing all business processes have in common is repetition. Business processes must be repetitive and standardized to ensure consistency. Consistency ensures that the customer receives a consistent level of quality, communication, and an all around positive experience. Consistency also ensures that the business can monitor certain goals and progress indicators are met allowing the business to grow.
For centuries, the way running a business has been the same—create a set of processes to follow and delegate them to the according staff, then manage the staff accordingly. This is still the case with a significant amount of businesses worldwide today. But computers have completely changed the game. Some of the most laborious and time consuming tasks have now been replaced by software. Around the globe, computers churn away doing the work that would take millions of man hours. This translates to extreme amounts of productivity and the cost of doing business has dropped tremendously.
This integration of software has brought about a huge problem. While many businesses have adopted software such as accounting software, and inventory software, there are still many businesses that aren’t aware of the potential. And while mass produced software can be very helpful, sometimes it just cannot reproduce what is needed for the business. Take, for example, the process of invoicing. Quickbooks can automate the process of invoicing very well, and many businesses use it for that purpose. But, for another example, in the car industry—VIN numbers are manually entered into the computer, whereas plenty of scanning technology solutions exist. Many industries could still benefit from software.
When mass produced software is not readily available for businesses, the business typically just hires people to get the job done. This is a very inefficient and costly solution. The more optimal solution is to hire a skilled programmer to create custom software. The problem with this is that many business owners aren’t aware that this is an option, or don’t know where to find a programmer. Well look no further!
