In today’s business world, many Small & Medium Enterprises are equipping their team with the very best in order to fuel growth, easily overcome challenges or changes in the industry, maximize transparency and go head-to-head with their much larger competitors. Sometimes, a small business can have the best, most dedicated, hardworking team but the worst software systems. This team won’t be able to perform to their full potential. They’ll most likely feel frustrated at the roadblocks they face due to their office technology, where errors and miscommunication tend to arise. Your team should be working with the best IT business solutions to maximize efficiency and to build a solid foundation for success and growth. Here’s how to do it
Automate & integrate your business processes with a fully integrated Management Software Solution (ERP) for Small & Medium Enterprises
An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution allows employees to view, manage and track core business processes and resources using ONE database. All data is stored safely in one place, no matter an employee’s physical location or department. Users are able to track all processes and view data all in real-time. This system should be the foundation of your company’s IT infrastructure. One single data warehouse will improve efficiency by increasing the accuracy of your data, reducing manual data entry, increasing organizational transparency, etc.

Improve partner relationships and communication with integrated EDI translation software
EDI communication is becoming extremely popular amongst SMEs in recent years. Not only are large retailers demanding their suppliers use EDI in order to do business together but companies (of all sizes) are slowly but surely realizing the many benefits of using an EDI communication service with their Trading Partners. Our team has simplified EDI with a translation software tool called EDI2XML. Basically what this translation service does is it can easily and automatically convert any incoming EDI file format into an XML/CSV/TXT format and vice versa for outgoing documents. This solution can be integrated into any software application.

Track inventory with a mobile Warehouse Management System
A WMS can easily and efficiently:
- Provide real-time inventory status
- Remote scan all bar-coded items
- Track merchandise and shipments
- Manage multiple warehouses
- And much more
This system is used by manufacturing companies to better manage their warehouses by integrating all this data into their ERP management software solution.
Stay connected while on-the-go with Mobile Business Applications
Mobile business applications allow business people to access their management system on any mobile device (smartphone, tablet) to gain on productivity. These apps are great for management teams, sales reps who work on the road, or any team that works on a customer’s site.
Sell directly online with an integrated eCommerce Store
More and more we are noticing business closing due to low sales and high rent. Brick and mortar stores are slowly being replaced by eCommerce Stores that have a fraction of their costs (no rent, no utility bills, etc). On top of this, eStores allow consumers to shop at any hour of the day from the comfort of their own home. Online selling has truly changed the way consumers browse and shop for products and services.
Protect your data with a Business Continuity Solution
This solution often gets overlooked since many business people believe their backup tapes and drives are good enough to protect their sensitive company data from disasters. Unfortunately this isn’t the case as tapes and drives have a high chance of getting damaged or lost at any given moment. Other crises can also occur such as other hardware failures, security breaches, software errors, natural disasters or even human errors. These possibilities can occur at any time. It’s best to be well prepared with today’s latest hybrid backup and restore technology – a Business Continuity Solution.

It’s time to equip your team with the best solutions needed to fuel growth and maximize efficiency.
