Information Technology Solutions to Lead Small Business to Success

Many small businesses depend totally on their computer systems. A small online store, for example, depends solely on the computer system to operate perfectly. A small fault in their system can lead to huge losses in terms of money and data, and it can affect their day-to-day operation. Have you ever encountered an error message such as “the site is facing technological problems,” when you visit some online store or some small business website to purchase their products or services? If it happens too frequently, you could become so frustrated that you would look for some other similar business which has a good, operational website.

Many small businesses assume wrongly that, to set up an online business and get it up and running, they only need to publish their website, develop it, and then expect customers and prospects to visit their website on a regular basis that will lead to sales. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen, and usually small businesses have to close down ultimately because their website doesn’t generate enough sales. These small businesses don’t just need a website, rather they need a whole IT solution that includes a web solution and other solutions related to information technology to make their business operations run smoothly.

A small, online business especially is so dependent on the computer system and information technology that even the slightest fault in the system can lead to huge losses, losses they can’t afford to risk. If a prospect visits the site for the first time, and it shows the error of the site facing technological problems, they are likely never again to return to the site.

There Just Is Not Enough Time

What is the enemy that we all face every day? Time. There just isn’t enough of it. I think that people want easier ways of doing things. A four-step process, rather than a 22 step process, to produce a sales catalog. An annual report that takes hours, rather than weeks, to complete. A financial process that doesn’t result in hours of review and manual data entry to correct a software feature that failed.

What if you and I could work together as advocates of operational efficiency? What if we could translate the best practices of our industry into the delivery of operationally efficient processes and procedures? Could we drive down the price of technology? I think so. First, we are talking about something that it is believable that software can do. You can call it smart, intelligent software or whatever, but there is no doubt that software is increasingly able to improve the way we do things and the time it takes to get them done.

If you think about it, historically the “killer” apps have been products that improve operations. The spreadsheet was successful not because it introduced a new business metric, rather because it made it substantially easier to do what previously took a lot of time. The same thing with word processing. The issue was to improve accuracy and spend less time on production issues. What ultimately drove Intuit’s success was not financial advice for the masses, but the ability to enter data and print checks easily.

Holding software up as being responsible for increasing sales or raising funds fails the believability test. I was a Marketing Executive, and it was always about the people and the mission. It was never about the software.

Better yet, best practices and operational efficiency once delivered is sustainable. Reducing a process from 22 to 4 steps once done is done forever. The value of focusing on reducing IT complexity is that we free people to pursue their individual brand of excellence. What if I could deliver for you an additional hour every day so you can focus on what only you can do to make your organization great? Would this be of interest to you?
