What is modern cloud business management software?

The wave of rapid digitalisation in recent years has brought significant changes to our everyday lives, with technology advancements enabling a fully connected world commanded by cloud-based, mobile functionality. This evolution has not only changed the way people interact but has changed expectations around how we do business.

While SMB leaders have long relied on legacy applications and disparate solutions to manage their business needs, they are now facing a pivotal moment where embracing digital transformation is quickly becoming essential to survival.

The new generation of cloud-based, comprehensive business management software is designed specifically to make digitalisation more accessible than ever for SMBs, helping them capitalise on new technology to adapt faster, work smarter, and perform better. Connecting data across financials, sales, service, supply chain, and operations provides a holistic view and deeper insight into what is happening within and around the business while enabling more informed action.

How does modern business management software differ from entry level accounting, customer, or resource management tools?

Traditional technologies like bookkeeping and accounting tools, customer relationship management (CRM), and ERP solutions, and human capital management (HCM) applications are each effective in helping SMB leaders manage various aspects of their business. However, these disparate systems leave data siloed and inaccessible without providing a holistic “big picture” of everything happening across the business.

A modern, all-in-one business management solution brings together the functionality of all these applications in a single source to connect your data, people, and processes for maximum business impact with less effort. Modern business management software enables you to:

• Automatically pull your systems and processes together so your people do not have to

• Gain a complete picture from across your business, with reports when and where you need them, to support more informed decisions

• Create efficiency across your business processes and be ready for growth so change does not get in the way of your day-to-day operations
