3 Ways to Simplify Your Business Technology

By November 19, 2014Sage ERP X3

Simplicity really is the key to making your business work

The irony about simplifying your business is that it is anything but simple to do.

Need some help?

Here are three ways that effective technology can help you make your business run simpler.

1. Make changes easy to see

Effective graphics have always been a method to make complex information easier to understand. Truly, a picture is worth a thousand spreadsheets.

When you switch your business tech to programs that have a clear, easy-to-understand look and feel, you and your team will have the easily readable information that enables you to make effective decisions quickly. Look for programs with dashboards and other visualizations, which allow you to immediately tend to your customers’ needs.

2. Make sure everyone understands 

Have you ever noticed that computer programs have a lot of unfamiliar terminology? Make your business easier to run and understand with software that’s written in plain, easy-to-understand language. This will allow you to expand your business processes with ease, and you’ll get higher achievements for your stellar performers who have less computer knowledge. Plus, with simpler, more understandable terms, you or anyone in your company can accurately and quickly analyze data to make faster decisions.

3. Only allow targeted information

Do you sometimes feel like you spend all your time looking at too many reports and spreadsheets so that you can make the right decision? It may seem like all this data is necessary for you to find a workable solution for the many challenges your business faces, but honestly: less information is better for you to make clear decisions, and having less to look over helps you stay more productive. (Don’t believe me? Just ask President Obama.)

To simplify your business, look for computer programs that have:

  • Clear, easy-to-follow paths to the information you want
  • Dashboards with graphics that make sense
  • Terminology that everyone can understand

Don’t worry, with the right software, you’ll also be able to get more complex data when you need it. The most flexible programs are the ones that offer high-level executives an overview of business processes and the option to reveal more detailed information with a simple drill-down. This way, you can easily monitor your business no matter what decision you’re making.
