So what is Systems Analysis and how can it help you run your business?
The advantage of a single, optimised software system is that it combines your sales, production, distribution and accounting functions in one place. This means data can be centrally stored and integrated with other information such as stock and orders. It may also save data being entered multiple times and barcoding can also be used. The result is greater efficiency, less stress, happier customers and more time to work on the business.
How does it work?
What we do is look at your existing systems and work out what we can do to help you – sometimes it’s a lot easier to have someone outside the business looking at things objectively than trying to analyse everything yourself.
We start off by finding out the basics of how your business works i.e. do you manufacture, resell, engineer or offer services? We then look at what the sales process is and how orders come in and go from there.
Here are some of the questions we might ask you:
- What problems do you regularly encounter?
- Do you know areas that can be improved but are not sure how?
- What processes do you do manually?
- Are you under pressure from suppliers or customers to automate sales and invoicing?
- Does paperwork get ‘lost’?
- How do you track orders, their completion, invoicing and processes within the sale?
We have nearly 40 years’ experience helping businesses just like yours. We understand the problems businesses face and how we can solve them. Often this involves modifying our accounting or CRM software (see HERE). Or we can write bespoke software systems from scratch if required (see HERE). Solving your problem may also involve working with other software companies or Web developers which we are happy to do.
