How Cloud Based Business Solutions Keep SMEs Efficient And Competitive

Posted by Michelle Rochford November 2, 2016 at 7:02 AM

 

Gone are the days when employees were office-bound from nine to five. Today, more and more businesses of all sizes have realised that employee mobility can increase revenue, boost employee productivity and even reduce costs. For instance, why have a huge office space if most of your staff is made of sales reps or tradies whose job is mostly in the field?

Smart phones, tablets, laptops – even in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) systems, apps and the cloud are just a few tools that help small businesses stay competitive in their industry and keep their workforce mobile. Employees can collaborate, share documents and even attend meetings from a distance. With less time spent returning to the office and more time to focus on truly important tasks, everybody wins – employer and employees alike.

Still, there are some things that even mobile workforces need an office for. One of these tasks is printing – indispensable for real estate agents, sales reps and even tradies who need to print quotes, plans, invoices and essential business paperwork. Luckily, the latest technology makes printing faster, more user-friendly and simpler.

How SMEs Can Simplify Document Processes and Boost Admin Productivity

Posted by Andrew Lynch October 18, 2016 at 7:02 AM

You may think that when employing semi-permanent, part time or casual staff, it will be more cost effective than running an office packed with full-time employees. This is partly true: it requires less paperwork and reduces HR overheads, and perhaps you can save some money with a smaller office space.

But employing semi-permanent or casual staff has its own set of operational and productivity challenges. Medical or dental practices, real estate agencies or child care facilities that see constant churn in their administrative staff have to constantly re-train new employees on their processes, and this can be a problem if processes are highly complex.

5 Practical Ways Small Businesses Can Save Money

Posted by Glenn Gibson July 14, 2016 at 7:00 AM

 

A new survey has revealed that Australia’s small business sector is pessimistic about the future, with less than a quarter showing any confidence in the prospects of Australia’s economy. According to the 2016 MYOB Business Monitor Report, 42 percent of small business owners believed the economy will dip over the next 12 months, and only 24 percent said they were optimistic about it despite pre-election promises of greater support for the sector. "The latest MYOB Business Monitor clearly shows many SME operators are still concerned about the underlying strength of the Australian economy," said MYOB CEO Tim Reed. "Despite a range of election initiatives promised to help businesses get ahead, business owners still don't feel confident that the economy has turned the corner. It reinforces the need for policies that will stimulate the economy and lead to growth." With the world still reeling from the Brexit result and global financial markets in a state of flux, small business owners may need to start looking internally to find important cost savings. If you’re a small business owner, here’s five ways you can save money ahead of any financial squeeze:
