Monday, April 16, 2018

As a blogger, I basically run my own business which takes lots of discipline and knowledge of the proper tools.  Today I wanted to make a list of 5 important tools that every business needs and how they can benefit you. 

Some tools are easy to start using but others you may need to learn more about and embrace any available training.  And remember it's important to keep your employees and clients in the loop when you're trying out something new. 

1. Business Intelligence Software
In order to collect and analyze data you need a reliable software program for your embedded bi.  Look for something with interactive reporting and real-time analytics.  The better your software, the easier it is to get this crucial information together that will surely benefit your business.

2. Accounting Software
Using the right software for money can really make running a business more enjoyable because it takes away from the stress of trying to figure out finances on your own.  Accounting software can help track payments you make, income you get, and regular expenses.   Plus, at tax time it's always much easier to gather your information together since it's been organized and tracked all throughout the year. 

3. Meeting Software
Pick a platform or software to host meetings and webinars so that you can effectively communicate with clients, customers, and other employees.  You want something reliable and affordable but also something that everyone seems to agree on with usability.  

4. Scheduling & Calendar
It's crucial to use some sort of scheduling software or program that keeps your calendar organized and up to date.  You want something that can easily create meetings and appointments and invite others so they can use it as well.   Life can get really busy both at work and in your personal life and a reliable calendar can benefit you in both aspects of life.  When you're dependable to clients, you'll have a reputation that will spread to other potential business partners and customers.

5. Email
One of the keys to communication these days is email so it's only right to choose an email platform or program that is easy to use and meets all the needs of your specific business.  If you try one and it's not working out, consider switching to one that better suits your needs.  

So as you can see, there are many benefits to using the best software that suits your businesses needs.
