Don’t Blame, Modernize

Don’t Blame, Modernize


Nowadays, a company’s success, or at least its capacity for expansion, is often marked by an ability to steer its technology toward individual growth demands. The maturation of the business depends on a reactive awareness of and response to the available technologies. As if prosperity weren’t enough motivation for tracking changes in automation, one of the singular appeals of modern software is, of course, its function in unburdening us of inessential processes. Excel and other manual resources, once staples of account services, can be made obsolete by those fashioned for anticipating routine operational demands and checking our role in them. By doing so, we can marshal energies and capital to other things.

Those who refuse the sort of technologies that our competitors have already eagerly adopted, whether because we dread the learning curve necessary in learning to ply them or because we think technophobia is endearing, become similar to outdated vehicles. And our passengers—in this analogy, employees—take unhappy note of the manual windows, confinement to radio music, and feel cagey. Understandably, such throwbacks upset those accustomed to, or who are at least aware of wanting, automatic windows, Bose Surround Sound, Apple CarPlay, and GPS —and the multitudes of other refineries that have made car travel more and more enjoyable over the years.

That is, if we choose to embrace the evolution in software.

When prompted with what they feel to be consistent headaches within their businesses many of the companies and CEOs to whom we offer consulting services tend to cite poor communication between the sales and finance teams. For companies that have remained defiant of certain technologies the two teams are still purposed with the cumbersome feat of processing sales orders and product requests through antiquated metrics. So we know neither to lay blame on the sales team nor back office—problems such as these are symptomatic of a business that has outgrown its manual accounting and operations software.

Invariably, we recommend updates in integrated software such as Sage Intacct Integration and Salesforce, both of which squash the all-too avoidable mix-ups between one element of the business and another. By marrying programs used at the front of the house with those vital to the operational side of things, companies can bypass oversights that occur when these areas are needlessly partitioned. Sage Intacct Integration and Salesforce software, equipped with procure-to-pay, order-to-cash, and nuanced reporting procedures, unite all facets of the business by one personalized dashboard.

By contacting One Vision Solutions we can help start the process of overhauling outdated software so that you can invest resources in areas that promote more productive forms of growth for your business.
