When it comes to small business success, it’s not about charisma, drive or even know-how. An entrepreneur’s ability to run a profitable enterprise depends on what goes on behind the scenes. To really grow a company worth writing home about, you need to create an integrated business system that supports your evolution.
Small business owners face problems with repetitive tasks that require lots of paid hours — often at high supervisory rates of pay — to approve simple items like expense accounts or collect signatures or approvals for new documents, contracts and completed parts of special projects that different groups are doing.
Human error, time constraints, missing information and reliance on slow, outdated processes like sending important documents via snail mail can impede workflow and cost you time, money and client loyalty.
Getting your business to operate in the most efficient way requires effective workflow systems and tools. Workflow management helps your staff assign, communicate and complete specific tasks within your business.
