Happy New Financial Year

In the blink of an eye the new financial year is apon us.

The global economy is still in a state of flux and many local Australian business operators are already experiencing tough times, due in no small part to both the current state of national politics and the looming federal election, which inevitably leads to a slow down across many sectors.

At times like these business needs to work as smart as possible, and my number one tactic - and new financial year resolution - is simply get with the program.

What does that mean you ask?

There are so many time saving programs (software tools, apps and plugins etc.) now available that the day to day operations of a business do not have to be such hard work.

Likewise the Internet and in particular e-commerce has reduced the hassle of some menial and time consuming tasks from once taking hours to just minutes.

For example, some vendors like Officeworks deliver orders placed before 11:30am in capital cities on the same day...so why would you battle traffic, check-out queues and your office stairs when in a fraction of the time you can arrange for goods to be delivered right into your reception area!

When it comes to your existing systems and software, make it a priority to be sure your suppliers are doing their part to upkeep the technology with the latest capabilities.

In our case we've been sure to keep our website development technology capabilities at the forefront of the mobile Internet revolution.

It's also a good time to review the terms and options vendors offer. For example, one software vendor we deal with offers a full purchase option for around $3,000.00. Alternatively, an annual subscription to their cloud based service is around $50.00 per month.

The moral of this article is be pro-active and look for ways to save time and money, which can be re-purposed for other initiatives that have a positive impact on your bottom line.
