When you start new business or just new project think of how you’ll operate it. It is better to decide about all organizational moments at the very beginning. Of course you can introduce some gadgets and software in the middle of the project, but I advise to do everything before. Exactly that way I did when started my new project connected with shipping products to customers. Earlier we used Transport Company’s service, but decided that we can make this cheaper by ourselves.
First I have bought tracking program, which shows where delivery car is at the moment. It is very convenient to watch over delivery car and be aware of the route. Then I introduced invoicing software, which helps me create invoice very fast and send it immediately to the customer. Invoicing software also lets me create database with all my customers inside. Additional to customers’ database I created my products and services database. I haven’t thought before that invoicing software could be so useful and helpful. I am fully satisfied with this purchase. It will improve the quality of my invoicing and work in general. When I was founding my company I didn’t have such smart business programs like invoicing software, tracking program and other. We spent two times more time on invoicing than nowadays I spend. But I think it is good that progress is moving fast and creates modern solutions for everyday tasks.
Besides invoicing software I use bookkeeping software and accounting program. Smart programs cooperate with each other and bring me perfect results. On the one hand, I envy people who start their business now because they have all necessary programs and equipment for easy start. On the other hand, all I went through when stated my company is my priceless experience. Not always the easiest way is the better one. I advise everyone to choose their own way and start successful business.
