Why You Need to Invest in a Business Management System in FY18

Why You Need to Invest in a Business Management System in FY18

What Not to do When Choosing an ERP | Horizon Business Systems

The start of a new financial year is a great time for you to reflect on the past year, and look over what went well and what could have gone better. Every business owner should take the time to map out what they are going to do in the next 12 months to further grow their business. This, of course, is a much easier process if you have a well-designed business management system (BMS). With the right tools, you should be able to benchmark your performance, access critical information, and ultimately make better business decisions.

Are you wasting valuable time trying to track down data about your business? A good BMS will allow you to take key data and turn this into actionable insights – giving you the freedom to focus on your business. You should be able to see at a glance, sales, stock, accounts receivable, work in progress and other key performance indicators. You can also prepare customised dashboards for staff in various departments to keep them accountable and on track.

Tailored for Your Business

Every business is different, so you need a BMS which can be customised to suit your unique requirements. You should have the ability to view all the relative information that is important to your business in real time. This includes the ability to gather reports and information at ease to help your teams forecast accurately and lead to better informed decisions in the future.


Your BMS needs to be flexible. As your business grows and develops, you should have the ablility to customise your system to suit. This could include adding new reporting tools to track new product lines or developing new dashboards to get greater visability in new market areas.


Vital business data is often locked away in different divisions and the information may not flow through to the people who need it. A good BMS helps you leverage your database resources, giving access to those who require it to perform in their role. It will also help you standardise your business processes ensuring business rules are adhered to.

Actionable Insight

Don’t spend your time trying to track down information when your focus should be on your business! You need a single vision of truth, with the ability to oversee every aspect of your operation, including CRM, Payroll, Sales, Stock and more. This will give you a more accurate and detailed holistic view of your business so you can make decisions on what is working and what is not. More accurate reporting and insights lead to better quality decisions.

Grow The Bottom Line
