Business Software Solutions

Business software solutions come in many shapes and sizes. If you make the right choices as you start, then you won't have to worry about them later. Instead, you can spend all your time focusing on making connections and growing your business.

As you are looking, keep things simple. Although you're probably hoping for a magic program, it just doesn't exist. Find solutions that will work on your computer and will allow you to keep up with everything simply and easily.

These are a few of my favorites that will help you run your business efficiently:

  • Use Microsoft Office, Outlook, Publisher, Word, and Excel. They are reliable and will work with your clients' systems.

  • Use a time, billing, and accounting package that provides business software solutions to small business. Quickbooks is a good, simple choice.

  • Get a good contact management package like ACT.

  • For basic research use the tools at support.microsoft.com.

These options are inexpensive and will generally work as well as a very expensive customized system. To learn more about these programs and others, read the full article (link above).
