Now is the time to make sure your company is positioned to take advantage of the turnaround from this challenging economic period. Every organization can find areas where improvements are possible and needed.
Examining and streamlining processes, raising efficiency, and putting in checks and balances, at a time when business is a little slower, is a prudent decision.
And, you can be certain that the tools and systems you have in place provide more functionality and can offer more information than you are already using now.
I wrote this in Microsoft Word before posting it, but I don’t know all of Word’s other features. I’m constantly using only a small percentage of its capabilities, because I’ve yet to see the value of taking time to learn more.
This is true not only for Word, but any software program, including our industry-specific ProfitMaker program for instance (which ASI Computer Systems provides for distributors and suppliers to use for entering orders, tracking inventory and producing business reports).
So if you’re a ProfitMaker user, here are recent improvements you might not have used yet that can really help you out:
More resources than ever
ESP Online Search
New Activity Manager
ASI Services directly integrated
Direct Supplier Website Integration
If you’re not a ProfitMaker user, visit www.asicomp.com to learn more about how it can streamline your operations and provide you with more time for selling.
Look around your office and think about what programs and resources you already have that can contribute more to your operations, and ultimately, your profitability.
