Yes – there is always a better way to do things – but is it worth my time? Most businesses have established procedures that get the job done – and many smaller to medium size companies are often too busy to stop and look for a quicker, more efficient and more reliable way of doing the job. Change can after all be very time consuming – and only larger companies are likely to have dedicated staff to review company procedures and decide if you need a Software Solution.
Office Objects has over 10 years experience in helping companies examine how they can do things differently – and better. Often that does not mean a total overhaul of existing systems be they manual or computerised but an upgrading of your existing way of doing things. Quite often companies rely on spreadsheets to store, calculate and retain reference details and this can work adequately but can lead to duplication and time unnecessarily dedicated to error checking.
A Software solutions be it web based or desktop based can be used to work with your existing data but ensure the weak points in your procedures are identified and upgraded or replaced – when there is a clear benefit.
A warehouse can be run by only using spreadsheets – but it is time consuming. Similarly a stock system can updated via a spreadsheet but will require multiple checks to keep it accurate and why re-enter information in Word when you already have the information elsewhere when you are producing Invoices. If you have a manufacturing process that require multiple operators and requires multiple parts – it can probably be controlled manually or via spreadsheets – but more than likely there is a better smarter way to do it.
