Today, business leaders can now access accounting software, calendar software, task management software, client relationship management software and so on to help make their business processes more efficient.
While this vast software choice is of course a blessing, it can become an administrative burden having 4 or 5 different software systems for staff and managers to login to everyday to run the business. Staff have to learn different systems, remember different logins, constantly login and out of different systems and do complex and time-consuming data imports between systems.
That’s why many businesses are dispensing with individual function specific software tools and are favouring an all in one, cloud based, business management software tool. Larger business have had these centralized business management software tools for sometime and they are known as ERP systems.
