4 ways to simplify and grow your business
As a business owner, you’re probably thinking about the most effective way to grow your business and build a profitable company. But it can be hard to focus on growth when you spend all your time working on the smaller details. And if your business is not functioning as effectively and economically as it could be, it can be even harder.
These tips can help you simplify the way you operate, leaving you the time to grow your business.
- Put all your data in one place
When you use one software application that integrates all your systems, you get instant company-wide insights into all areas of your business. So you don’t have to search through multiple entries, across a number of spreadsheets and databases, to find what you’re looking for. Instead, you have all the facts at your disposal instantly, so you can make smarter decisions. And you can make them quicker.

Manual entry of data across a number of systems can be very time consuming. And it takes staff away from performing other critical functions, or working towards helping you achieve greater ambitions. If you automate the key functions of your business, everyone will have more time to focus on development projects that help you grow your business.

And it can cost between £1 and £100 to rectify each mistake, depending on the time at which the error is noticed. Cut down on the potential for mistakes by streamlining your operations, reducing the number of physical entries that need to be made.
Studies also show that up to a third of data breaches are the result of human error. So not only will your systems run better when manual input is reduced, you’ll also benefit from improved security.

And the average company could be losing 12% of its revenue due to wasted marketing spend, resources, and staff time – all due to inaccurate data.
