Welcome to Our New Monthly Blog Feature!
ADSjr. is happy to bring our clients, friends, and associates a blog dedicated to all your tech-related questions. Our business thrives on information, and now we want to share that information with you, so you can improve your operations and grow your business!
Every month, we’ll bring you the latest tech news, including featured products, programs, and software. Better yet, we’ll help you connect it all to your business goals.
For our first blog, we want to cover some of the top questions we’re asked by clients and colleagues:
- Why does my business need systems and software?
Strong systems improve your operations. When you’re able to maximize your efficiency and eliminate redundant steps, you and your team will have more time to spend where it matters. Finding, using, and understanding the right program can also save on costs, and improve your operations.
- Which systems and software are best?
The best systems are those designed specifically for your business or industry. Every business has a completely unique set of needs, and most programs are targeted so they can cater directly to those needs. A lawyer will need different functions from a program than an electrician will.
In some cases – particularly when you have precise needs, or there aren’t appropriate programs and software available online – the best solution is custom-designed software built around your processes. If you aren’t sure what you need or whether a system is right for you, please ask us! We’d love to show you what works, why, and how to get the best pricing and training.
- How can a custom system help my business?
Custom software is designed around your specific business needs. Many businesses think custom software is too expensive, but in most cases, the expense is well worth the time saved on labour, training, program fees, and other costs that come with cookie-cutter programs. Custom systems also cut out the noise of features and functions that don’t apply to you; the only pages you’ll see are the pages you need.
Custom software isn’t for everyone. In some cases, there are enough programs available on the market to choose the best fit for you. Need to find the right program? Let us know!
- Why do I need software training for my employees?
Your systems are only as effective as the people using them. Software programs – and in particular, off-the-shelf software – often has a variety of features and functions that can be maximized for the best results. In-house training is the most efficient way to ensure you and your team are all on the same page and using the right functions, and that everything is operating smoothly on your system. We offer training for all kinds of programs, and our custom software development always includes training. Training can be one-on-one, or group sessions, depending on the level of proficiency each staff member requires to operate the program.
- Which systems do you use and prefer?
We are able to work with nearly any software. Our IT experts are familiar with a wide range of programs, but we’re always expanding our knowledge base. We know what works and what doesn’t, and we’re always happy to help clients find a program that is the right fit for their needs.
If there’s a particular program you’d like help with, please feel free to contact us, and we’ll make sure your software is working harder for you.
