The working life of a small business owner is often frantic. Every minute of their time is precious, so the last thing they want to is be wasting their time on things that could be done more quickly or avoided altogether by using integrated software. Here are some of the benefits of integrated software:
Lower costs: Integrated software is almost always a cheaper option than purchasing two or more separate pieces of software. For example, the cost of buying individual software packages with all the functionality of Online Office would cost over £1000!
No re-keying: Because integrated software uses the same database throughout, it avoids the irritation of having to enter the exact same information over and over. The accounting module will simply draw information from your address book and so on.
No incompatibility: There is nothing more annoying than receiving an important file from a colleague that you are unable to view for some unknown reason. If you are all using the same web-based integrated software then your file format woes will be less severe.
Less updates: Because you are using less software, the amount of necessary updates will also be fewer. If you choose a web-based integrated solution like Online Office then wasting time updating will be a thing of the past forever.
User-friendly: As integrated software will use the same interface throughout, you only have to become familiar with using one piece of software. This is not only easier for you but it will also be easier to teach staff.
