Business capacity can easily be increased if work progress is tracked through a good software application.
Why? It is sometimes a struggle to follow complicated processes, remember multitude of tasks that need to be completed, and on top of that, many deadlines to keep track of. As a result, we continually fix problems through a broken process. A streamlined software application is an effective tool to help people to address these challenges.
Business capacity is a broad topic. In this article we are going to focus on how it is impacted by a business software application.
Throughout all businesses, two issues consistently arise. One being unclear or too complicated processes for the employees to follow. The other issue is the lack of a monitoring system over the work progress. Some of the work requires several parties’ collaboration to finish, resulting in incomplete or even forgotten task items. Even when fully completed, many projects are not delivered in the way they were originally intended to be. Companies attempt to resolve such problems by adding extra management resources to monitor. Unfortunately, the problem still is not fully resolved and the management cost increases.
Many years ago, K-Mart filed for bankruptcy. Due to the lack of an effective system with the right business process, their workers found major difficulties in navigating through complicated inventory management and purchasing process. They did not have a clear picture of their inventory status as they purchased their supplies in short time and had limited periods to compare or negotiate prices. While losing customers, their profit margins shrunk as well.
When examining successful businesses such as Amazon, Toyota, GE etc., it is apparent that they utilize a multitude of advanced software applications to build a streamlined business process and maximize their capacity. Such methods ease the process of expansion as they possess a clear and simple process for their employees. When the whole system is monitored, the service quality improves, productivity increases, and the duration of the work tasks is decreased.
This applies to services companies as well. As a service company, manpower cost is one of the largest areas. These costs will increase exponentially without such a system in place to monitor tasks and track whether progress and resources have been appropriately planned. From resources to manpower to time allocated, various critical factors must be taken into consideration.
There are a myriad of ways to approach using a software application to manage a business. One of the most common methods is through custom web application. It is the friendliest way to manage a business with multiple parties involved throughout the process. Furthermore, mobile applications are important for businesses if services are performed on the field.
When an organization has a simple process to follow and it is supported by accessible software applications, they can expand more efficiently. This creates a strategic advantage over its competitors.
