As Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, once said: "The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency."

In almost every facet of our daily lives, automation has started to shine. The rebirth of the electric car, the evolution of the Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence finding mainstream traction in the form of personal assistants on our smartphones have all become increasingly commonplace in the last 12 months. But are we any more efficient than before?

Technology and automation allow even the most niche of businesses to flourish in the physical and digital marketplace.

Sculpting software around the needs of your business

With both efficiency and automation touted as the reward and answer to business concerns respectively, 2017 will reveal the crucial third part of the equation: Adaptability.

Business processes, markets and products are more diverse than ever. We can now buy almost anything online, instantly, and have it delivered to our door.

It makes sense to recognise the importance of support software that adapts to your business, and not the other way round. With technology and automation allowing even the most niche of businesses to flourish in the physical and digital marketplace, framework and management software needs to offer a scalable and customisable solution.

Automation will be key to accelerating growth within your business. Automation will be key to accelerating growth within your business.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and a Warehouse Management System (WMS) are two crucial elements of this overall solution, but are vitally overlooked as the global marketplace becomes both automated and strives for efficiency. Including the optional Mobile Warehouse Management module to accompany our base accounting software, ERP/WMS is a key tool for solving the issues around inventory management, dispatch and transfer.
