Software and Success Go Hand in Hand in Business: Here's What You Need to Invest In!

In today’s digital and technological age, if you want your business to survive you absolutely have to be up to date with modern ways of doing things. Manual methods are tedious and time consuming, and you could be paying a human worker for hours of labour when a computer could do it in seconds. So even for small businesses, it’s worth researching what’s out there and choosing programs that are right for you. Here are some of the business softwares out there that could make your life so much easier as an entrepreneur.





Cloud Online Backup Software
Losing data could be a massive setback in your business, so you’ll already know that everything should be backed up and properly stored. The problem is, backing up to USBs, drives and other kinds of hardware still poses a problem. If a fire, flood or burglary claims your computers they will more than likely claim your backup copies too. One way to get around this is by backing up to the cloud. Here your data is encrypted for safety and stored securely online, that way if anything happens to your computer's your information is safe. It also means if you have employees that need to work remotely it’s easy for them to access the files they need without the tedious process of sending things over.

Security Software
Keeping your business safe is one of your biggest priorities as an entrepreneur. Fraud or theft could mean your hard work is taken from you and so keeping the bad guys out is important. If you need to verify identification or documents, there’s software which can allow you to know the true identity of your customers. That way you’re not lending money, hiring equipment or unintentionally breaking the law. Business internet security software can ensure you’re not being hijacked or targeted online, along with using common sense such as using complex passwords. As well as protecting your business physically you of course need to protect it online too which is why this is so important.


Finance Software
Keeping good records and accounts is a crucial part of any business. You’re likely to need an accountant to do things like your VAT and tax return, but for the day to day runnings of your company accounting software allows you to keep track and can make their life easier when it comes to wrapping everything up at the end of the tax year. This will make things quicker and will therefore be cheaper for you since you’ll be paying for less hours. It also means you’re less likely to end up with errors, this is important as if you underestimate the tax you need to pay you could end up with a fine or penalty or even a prison sentence if it’s deemed it was done intentionally. So of course, it pays to be extra cautious here.

A Live Chat Feature
Live chat is becoming more popular in business and for good reason. Instead of having to pick up the phone, customers can ask questions and have things resolved chatting online which many people are far more comfortable with. It’s quick and easy and can secure you more customers, since there will be cases where people are unsure of things but wouldn't necessarily call up to ask and just click off instead. Having fast access to a real person via instant messaging who can answer their questions could mean they shop with you instead.

A Blogging Platform
The benefits of blogging for business have been very well established. Not only does it help to drive more traffic to your site (as more pages get indexed by search engines) but it also boosts your page rank and helps to establish authority. Blogging helps to spread the word about your business through social media too, since blog posts are very share friendly. Wordpress integrates easily into websites, and it’s just a matter of adding regular, engaging content. If you’re not much of a writer, you can hire freelancers from many places online who are experienced in writing this kind of content. Otherwise this could be a job for one of your team members. Write content that’s linked to what you sell, and you show customers that you know your stuff. For example, if you sell clothing items you could write about fashion trends, styling tips, celebrity looks and more.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
