Software


Software for small businesses isn’t just about their accounting package, though of course that does tend to be our focus! There are so many other types of software that businesses can benefit from, that we will only ever scratch the surface in our Information Centre.

What we will do though is share posts and articles to pass on recommendations or suggestions that we think may be useful.

The best software for your business will differ to that which may be great for us, or for your competition down the road. If we can highlight something as ‘worth a look’ though, we hope that’ll be helpful. Please just remember that as a business owner you need to decide which new package to look at, and be disciplined enough not to lose hours in ‘playing’ with it! It’s always a temptation…

As ever, if we can help, advise or be a sounding board for you as you move forward, please get in touch!

Changing Accounting Systems?

We’ve been speaking to several clients recently about switching from one accounting system to another. There are lots of benefits from using something like Xero or Quickbooks, but there are also important points to consider before changing accounting systems. Get the process right, and the change could feel seamless, but the alternative may not be pretty!

Streamlining the Appointment Process

If you’re booking appointments with customers or clients, the back and forth of finding a suitable time can seem to take longer than the appointment itself! A new solution, called ‘Calendly’ may help you solve that problem.

Using Direct Debits to get to the money faster!

Using Direct Debits to collect payments from your customers and clients is becoming more and more popular, and it’s easy to see why!

Can I just say we are so pleased that we have moved to Baranov Associates. As we discussed when you visited, we had to find a way to take the stress out of all of the financials and you’re doing that for us! We can see how to use Xero more efficiently and so with us being as on top of it as we can be and with you and Liz we feel a lot more confident about our business being in good shape.
