Whether you currently store your business data in spreadsheets, Word documents, or
even on paper, using a database will bring immense benefits to your organisation.
Data will be available instantly to multiple users.
Data can be sorted and presented to suit your needs.
Information such as customer data can be updated instantly.
Data will be more secure. Once your database is backed up even the loss of your computer
systems will not stop your company functioning. Part of our installation procedure
is to ensure adequate backups are instigated from day one.
Consolidate all of your business data in one secure place.
So much for the technical reasons for using a database.
What about the business benefits?
Fast retrieval of information about your customers, your stock and your competitors
gives you a competitive advantage.
Up to the minute sales and order details are vital when making decisions. Educated
guesses sometimes work, but get some data behind the guesses and they will be more
likely to work.
Small businesses can react to change quicker than larger competitors. You can only
do this if you have accurate data that is easily accessible.
Instant access to what your customers have ordered, which payments are due, stock
levels, your expenses, tax records etc etc.
Any small business that does not utilise database technology is at a disadvantage.
It’s very likely that your competitors are using this technology, so should you.
