You ran out of product once again because of your flawed reporting system. You let out a heavy sigh as you have to now pick up the phone and tell the client what happened. You aren’t surprised when the client gives you a tight deadline and hints that they no longer want to work with you. You just lost your biggest client all because of your reporting system.

When it comes to using reports to manage your business, you need an internal business application that is on point, fast, and reliable. If your software isn’t up to the challenge, then it is time to move on. Luckily, custom software can help solve the issue before it becomes a bigger nuisance than it already is. Custom software can once again save you time, money, and give you that competitive edge in your industry. Here’s how.

 

Product Monitoring

 

Keeping an eye on product can get overwhelming. If a report is inaccurate, it can throw a whole wrench into your business system. Orders get delayed, clients get angry, and your business suffers. Create a reporting system that simplifies keeping track of inventory. Custom software can allow for real-time reporting so you will always be on top of supply and demand. Never fall behind again because of your reporting system.

 

Cognizant of Time

 

Proper management of your time plays a large role when growing your business. A custom made reporting system is a great way to help keep your timeline in check. Detailed reporting and analysis on critical data will maintain better operations and free you up so you can focus on more important tasks. Using the correct business application to capture data will save you time better spent in other aspects of the company.  

 

Competitive Edge

 

Want to be the best of the best in your industry? Then you’ll need great reports to help you get there. Custom software will give you a better insight on where to make improvements in your company.

Say you want to see how your latest campaign is doing. With custom software, you can tailor your reporting system to run a report specifically for that data. Now you can take that report and compare it against the market. Custom built reporting systems make it easier to see how you can make the campaign even stronger.  

 

Options

 

Off the shelf software is built for your industry, but not exactly for your company’s specific needs. When you build your own software, especially here in the USA, you’ll get to pick and choose what you want to include and exclude in your reporting system. Creating filters to show the dimension and metrics you care about will again save you time, money, and help your business to succeed.

 

Employee Improvement

 

Employees want to do their best and with custom software you’ll have the knowledge to help them to succeed. Perhaps you notice that a certain department seems to be having issues. With a custom built internal business application you can zero in on the issue. Now, you know what to look out for and employees do too.

 

Data Driven Businesses Do Better

 

A data-driven business is when every person within the organization uses data to make better business decisions. As your business grows, so does the complexity of monitoring all aspects of the company. Having an accurate and reliable reporting system is the only way to keep everyone on track working together to obtain the same goal. A custom made reporting system will allow each department to closely monitor their aspect of the business.

 

Budget

 

Now you may be asking yourself, “This all sounds great! But won’t it cost me a fortune to build an internal business application like this?”

Actually, custom software can save you from unnecessary spending. For example, take running a report to see how much product you currently have sitting in your warehouse.  Inaccurate or vague reports show that you are low on product. Based on the report you buy some more. Later, after the order goes through, you find out that you had enough. This little glitch from your report has now interfered with your budget.

The reporting that custom software provides will prevent scenarios like that from happening. That in itself is worth spending the money to build your software versus using an off the shelf product.

Ayoka will create internal reporting applications that will indicate where you can make improvements to help grow your business.

When Your Current Software Can’t Keep Up

Oh no! Your software has crashed again, causing you to scramble to pick up the pieces. Your business is too important to deal with constant software problems.

But how do you resolve the issue?

You could upgrade to the next version of software you are using. You could also try resolving the issue over the phone with technical support that may or may not be here in the U.S. You could even try fixing it yourself.

The problem is, your software is slowing you down and none of these solutions seem to be resolving it. If you have ever experienced the following issues, then you may want to think about upgrading to custom software.

IT issues are eating up time
Feeling stuck in the mud because systems are down again? Or perhaps you keep missing deadlines because of your company’s current system. If you so, it sounds like it is time to consider a software overhaul.

Your current software is too slow on the administrative side of business. With custom software, you can create exactly what you need to speed things up in that area of the company. When you decide to use custom software, you will work directly with a software developer here in the U.S. Should a technical issue arise, the IT personnel are close by and will resolve the matter in little to no time.

IT issues are hurting your credibility
Being behind by a day or two because of IT issues can make or break your company’s credibility. Suppose your software is causing you to miss deadlines. Or maybe your software is providing work that doesn’t meet a client’s standards. You could lose their business as well as future business. Others may see you as careless or even as a risk to partner with.

In 2014 Apple was forced to pull the iOS 8 update. Phones were freezing up and users were having all sorts of problems. Something as simple as a glitch in Apple’s system embarrassed the company. Don’t let this happen to you and your company. Always be the best in your industry with software that suits you.

Misconfigurations are impacting performance
Using poorly supported software can affect an entire company.  If your administrative assistants aren’t able to submit an order for a product, it slows down your manufacturing team and could cause you to miss your next shipment.

Get the job done with software that mirrors your needs. Should an issue arise, you now have control of your own intellectual property. With custom software, you will experience fewer delays and remain productive.

Impacting revenue
Every minute lost to software issues is a loss of productivity, which results in a loss of revenue. It is estimated that 59% of Fortune 500 companies lose an average of 1.6 hours per week because of unplanned downtime. This results in millions of dollars of lost revenue.

There is a solution. A U.S. based software company understands what it is like to be a business owner here in the States. Having tailored instruments allows you to complete projects with little to no delay. Custom software development makes it so that you will never experience a high loss of revenue.

Software won’t support a growing company
A growing company means growing services or products. It is counterproductive to force a dated system to keep up with your business. When you find yourself struggling to grow your business, that is a clear sign you need to update your software.

You could just upgrade to the next version of software you are currently using. But the thing is, those upgrades won’t necessarily help grow your business. A fresh start with custom-tailored software gives you the opportunity to add something new, like mobile software. With custom software, you will be able to reach more people and grow your customer base.

So what next?

Start fresh
Custom software benefits several aspects of a successful business. Operations won’t come to a screeching halt because of IT issues. Working with a company based here in the U.S. will make resolving IT issues fast and efficient. Also, it is key to have software that will help grow your business.

Don’t waste valuable time dealing with dated software that is beginning to weigh on you. Rather, try starting fresh and choose to work closely with Ayoka System’s developers. Together you will create the perfect software to suit your company’s every need.
