It’s the small, less obvious things that can often have the biggest impact on successfully operating a business. As my friend Andrew experienced, a simple change in organization and bookkeeping software can have a dramatic, positive effect, often more so than other changes in regards to business practices.
Andrew is in the shipping business. His business incorporates a medium-sized warehouse from which he ships all sorts of goods to people all across Europe with some customers even in the US and in China.
There is obviously a lot of stock to manage and to organize, let alone the effort required to effective manage the amounts of paperwork and documents that come with this type of business.
Andrew had a consultant give him the advise to switch over to export management software and it didn’t take a month that his profits increased by over 18% which is entirely unheard of considering no other changes had been made.
It is clear that certain types of businesses can profit tremendously from industry specific applications, prime example would be shipping software or export software for all those who deal with shipments, import and export of merchandise. It can be a small company that sells via ebay or a large corporate that is actively involved with trades with Asia, there are almost always benefits when this type of software is used.
I can only advise all owners of small businesses to carefully consider their software choices. Rarely is standard software sufficient to operate at maximum efficiency. I recommend that you look at international export information to learn all about export software and how it can help your business.
