Business management software that accelerates your business
Business management software is used to help businesses manage, improve and automate their processes. It enables streamlined processes and collaboration across departments – allowing for complete clarity across the board – be that sales, inventory, supply chain, or accounting. With each process being managed from the same application, analysing and reporting becomes thorough and accessible.
What is the difference between ERP and business management software?
One of the most notable differences is that an ERP vendor traditionally provides an entire HR module to a business. This encompasses features like purchasing, invoicing, and payroll. Business management software, however, has a level of customisation, which is something that ERP systems don’t always offer. If you don’t benefit from all of the features provided within an ERP software, it can be very costly. Alongside this, business management software is more scalable than ERP software.
It traditionally works on a monthly subscription, allowing businesses to change the number of users, or the functionality needed, as much as they want. When responding to an increase in sales, business management software allows a business to increase the number of users, and then reduce them later on, if there is then a decrease.

You can find free business management software tools on the market, though it’s usually best to find one with a monthly subscription. A lot of free applications will prevent you from using key features as a way to get you to upgrade, resulting in your business lacking the tools it needs to further its success.
Choosing to invest in a piece of software is a big decision for any business – especially one that’s going to run your entire operation.
