Email | Print

growth blog_collinsAchieving business growth can be an exciting time but it can also be dreadfully terrifying, especially if you don’t have critical goals in place or strategy that can handle the growth. If you’re ready, but hesitant to take those next steps, we hope this blog can help get your (distributor) feet headed in the right direction. Read on to learn three strategic ways to grow your business:

  1. Look Forward, Not Back: Although it’s important to know where you were last year to effectively plan for business growth, it’s easy to get stuck in the past. This is especially the case if your software can’t provide real-time data that helps you make effective growth decisions. According to a 2012 survey by Information Week Enterprise Applications, only 24% of businesses are focused on providing innovative products and services. How can you achieve this if you’re always looking back?
  2. Evaluate the Way You Work: You probably realize that your software could be holding you back in more ways than one, but another critical area to analyze is your workforce. How are they working now, and what would make them more productive in the future? Perhaps you don’t need to account for a massive increase in headcount due to company growth. For example, Microsoft Dynamics GP delivers the flexible, secure deployment options that keep everyone productive – at the office, at home, or on the road.
  3. Growth without Growing Pains: Achieving business growth doesn’t have to be painful. Although you might already be experiencing pains like manual data checks, disconnected systems, or inaccurate and delayed reporting, growth can be seamless if you can remove bottlenecks, connect your ERP software with distribution systems, and automate processes in between.
