While talking to your client about their project, you were only paying half attention because you were trying to track his most recent order in your head – and realizing there was huge problem that would surely impede his operations: your vendor was holding up the order due to an unpaid bill.
What Went Wrong
You thought you had the remote area market covered by getting the goods and services out there, but you made a mistake – you failed to implement new business management software, which sent you astray managing your accounting.
Doing it all with discrete programs and siloed information, however, is a fool’s mission, because your competition is fierce, the money is big, and delays are costly – you simply can’t leave anything to chance.
Business Management Solutions
So what do you need to do instead? Think in terms of your core business, and think about how much easier it would be if you could track everything from payroll and inventory management and handle all phases of contracts and customer orders – all in one system. With a business management system, you can.
Why Better Business Management is Essential
Alberta accounts for almost 70% of Canada’s crude oil and 80% of its natural gas; the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) estimates that by 2025 the area could have a daily output of 3.7 million barrels of oil – representing almost 5% of global production from this region. In addition, Alberta supports a pipeline network of over 403,000 kilometers of crude natural gas as well as other pipelines, which points to an ever-growing need for energy-management service providers.
When you look at it that way, you can’t really afford NOT to get a business management system. At Asyma Solutions, we can help. Contact us today to learn more.
