Why Business Systems Help

December 2nd, 2010

Great Businesses Have Two Things In Common – Systems and Information.   You might have great people in your business, but if you don’t have robust systems or relevant information then you may face an uphill battle.

Systems ensure you are doing the right things and information allows you to monitor how you are tracking. Let’s look at the benefit of having robust systems and quality information.

Benefit of Having Systems and Relevant Information In Your Business

  • Things are not left to chance
  • The business becomes dependent on the system not the person
  • There is less risk to your business
  • Stress is often removed
  • There is complete clarity around roles
  • Results are easier to track
  • Your business becomes more productive and efficient
  • Better efficiencies lead to better profitability
  • You add value to your business if you are looking at selling

Putting the systems in place and obtaining information requires planning and thought. Some questions to ask yourself might be:

  • What are you trying to achieve
  • What challenges do I presently have
  • Where does confusion exist with the business at present
  • How will I audit activity (systems need to be implemented and actioned)
  • What information do I want – what are the key drivers
  • How will I use that information
  • How will I collect it

Client Results By Taking A Systemised Approach To Their Business:

  • Sales $ up
  • GP$ Up
  • Expenses down
  • Profitability Up
  • Cashflow Improved
  • More control of their business
