Is it time to review your business information systems?

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Your business information systems should be working to make your business more effective and efficient. But what if you think they are not working and what are the options?

You can of course continue doing what you’re doing – because that’s the way it’s always been done… Or you could carry out a system review to identify the reasons why.

There can be many reasons why your systems may not be as effective and efficient as they could be. You could be using older software which has not kept pace with technological advances. Or as your business has evolved and grown you have added new systems which are disconnected through your business processes. To fully identify the reasons though, you’ll need to carry out a system review.

Reviewing and finding the right solutions for your business requires experience, knowledge and time that most businesses don't have internally.  Most businesses are often already fully occupied with their core business needs and lack the experience & resources needed to successfully improve their systems.

Your business information systems will involve more than just IT, they will consist of the technology (hardware and software), your processes and your people. A technical business consultant can review your systems, identify problems and make practical recommendations, including the recommendation of alternative systems, if appropriate. However, it’s not always the systems that are at fault, many problems can originate from improper implementation, incorrect processes or poor training.

A good business information system can:

  • advance insight into business operations
  • increase productivity
  • reduce people's frustration - contributing to happier and more productive people
  • improve customer service
  • save time & money

Before undertaking a review, it’s important to be clear about what outcomes you want to achieve, so you can review these against your current system.
