Any software investment is quite an undertaking for a company and can easily be a resource consuming process. However, with good planning and a clear evaluation process, finding the right software for your company’s needs can be smooth sailing.
Many company’s see non business critical software as an unnecessary investment when the truth is that the better choice made in support function software, the more time and resources can be focused on business essential work. If you’re not an accounting agency (in Finnish: tilitoimisto) and even if you use an external agency, it’s a smart move to invest in a robust, comprehensive financial administration software (in Finnish: taloushallinto ohjelma). Choosing the right software will help your company manage its people, processes and operations. For smaller companies, it will also free up people’s time to work on billable projects and for bigger companies it will minimize clutter and confusion. For this reason, it’s important not to go for generic products, but rather a solution that answers your company’s specific needs.
