Business Management Software Guide

What is Business Management Software?

Business management software is any digital solution that helps an organization manage most of its day-to-day business operations from a single dashboard. Typically, products in this category combine multiple applications into one integrated suite, allowing businesses to automate several important administrative tasks, such as, accounting, contact management, inventory management, time tracking, and customer relationship management.

The right business management software helps save time and money while improving the efficiency of your business operations. It allows you to create and store documents, monitor employees, view a customer's’ buying history and purchase patterns, all on a single application. With real-time visibility into the business database, you can make informed decisions in a timely manner.

Often, products in this category focus on several other areas of business management including task management, time management, lead management, expense tracking, payments and invoicing, attendance tracking, resource planning, training and onboarding.


What Business Management Software Should I Choose?

The first thing to decide is whether you need an all-in-one or a specialized solution. All-in-one solutions offer a little bit of everything. For instance, you may want a solution that provides the basic features of accounting, inventory management, customer relationship management and human resources management. Alternatively, you can look for business management software focused on one critical area of your business. For instance, if scheduling is an important area of your day-to-day operations, you’ll need advanced scheduling features, such as calendar management, time clock management, the ability to set goals, assign the right tasks to the right employees and send automatic reminders.

Another important thing to consider is the integration capability of the software. While most software products in this category handle the majority of your everyday operations, you may still need a standalone application to supplement your business operation software. For instance, if you run a retail business, you’re probably using a point of sale (POS) system already. So it is worth checking if your business management software integrates with your existing application(s).

Solutions focused on a specific industry are also available. Some products even come with a range of prebuilt solutions for a number of industries. For instance, one integrated solution may support back office operations, sales and marketing operations as well as ecommerce management, which makes it suitable for call centers, marketing firms and retail stores.

It is also important to choose a solution depending on the size of your business and growth potential. For instance, if you are expecting rapid growth, consider choosing a solution that can handle more users than you already have.
