Business owners and operators like you are constantly facing challenges or business pain points and seeking ways to optimise operations. Whether it’s to decrease costs, boost efficiency or reduce dependency on skilled workers with limitless career options that are near impossible to find, retain and afford.
Instead of letting these inefficiencies lead to time and resource waste and poor decision-making, why not develop your own systems to automate your processes?
Custom software development can streamline your processes, provide real-time insights, improve customer experiences, resolve integration issues, and modernise outdated technology.
In this article, we’ll explore these common business pain points in detail and show you how custom software development can solve them, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
1. Inefficient processes leading to time and resource waste.
With costs at all-time highs, businesses today need to operate at a high level of efficiency and productivity. One major pain point for many operators is the inefficiency of their processes, leading to the waste of valuable time and resources.
It could be manual, time-consuming tasks, a lack of streamlining, or simply outdated systems, but the result is the same – decreased productivity, increased expenses, and frustrated employees.
The good news is that there is a solution to these inefficiencies.
By automating manual tasks, optimising workflows, and streamlining processes, businesses can improve their overall efficiency and reduce the amount of time and resources they waste.
Whether it’s developing custom workflow automation software, or customising and integrating with existing systems, business leaders can find the right solution to their business pain points, increase revenue and free up valuable time and resources for more important initiatives like scaling your business!
2. Limited insights and poor decision-making due to inadequate reporting and analytics tools
Poor decision-making and limited insights can be a major roadblock for business, leading to missed opportunities and costly mistakes.
In our fast-paced operational environment, having access to real-time data and the ability to make informed decisions is crucial. However, many leaders are still relying on manual processes, spreadsheets, and outdated analytics tools that simply can’t keep up.
This is where custom reporting and analytics software can make a life-changing difference. With our solutions, businesses can collect, process, and analyse data from multiple sources in real-time, providing them with actionable insights and decision-making tools.
Your bespoke application can be customised to fit the specific needs of your business, giving you a competitive edge in a crowded market. With access to real-time data and the ability to make informed decisions, businesses can streamline their processes, improve efficiency, and maximise their potential.
3. Inconsistent customer experiences across multiple channels
The third major pain point businesses face is inconsistent customer experiences across multiple channels.
With customers accessing your business through various touch points such as websites, social media, and brick-and-mortar locations, it can be challenging to maintain a consistent brand image and provide the same level of customer experience across all channels.
This lack of consistency can lead to frustrated customers and reduced loyalty. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software tailored to the exact needs of your clientele is an effective solution to this problem.
A custom Omnichannel CRM solution can help you centralise customer information, manage customer interactions, and automate key processes to ensure a consistent experience across all channels. It will also give you the flexibility to create a single view of your customer, track their interactions, and provide relevant and timely responses to their inquiries.
This data is invaluable for understanding your customers and your business, which in turn empowers faster decision making and the ability to focus on what really drives your revenue, and where you’re wasting your time.
4. Integration issues between different systems and software
Integration issues between different systems and software can be a significant hindrance for businesses. When your systems do not integrate together effectively, valuable data can be lost, and critical processes can become bogged down.
This leads to inefficiencies, frustration, and ultimately, a negative impact on the bottom line. Custom integration software provides a solution to these problems by creating a seamless communication and data sharing process between different systems.
With custom integration software, businesses can connect disparate systems and software, allowing for a smooth and efficient flow of information, which leads to increased productivity, improved data accuracy, and streamlined processes.
If you want to learn more about how we bring everything together, read our article on APIs. For the short and sweet: most software applications have Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs for short. These allow different systems to share data.
Some common examples of popular API integrations include:
- Linking 3rd party stock management systems to common e-commerce platforms like Shopify, Magento or WooCommerce;
- Integrating accounting tools like Xero or Quickbooks with payment platforms like Stripe or Wise;
- Using APIs from Google Maps to provide location data in a mobile application.
5. Slow and outdated technology causing lag and frustration for employees
Business leaders and their teams need to be able to access information and complete tasks quickly and efficiently. Outdated tech often results in long wait times, crashes, and lost productivity, which ultimately affects your company’s bottom line.
How many times have you been stuck due to systems lagging or crashing, information suddenly missing or integrations that don’t… integrate?
We can solve this for you by creating your OWN system tailored specifically to your company’s needs and processes, allowing your team to work faster, more efficiently and with much less frustration.
Investing in your own custom software to modernise is an investment in your company’s success. With faster, more efficient systems in place, employees can focus on high-value tasks, resulting in increased productivity, better customer experiences, and higher profits. You can also save money by reducing the need for mindless manual tasks like data entry and manual reconciliation.
Also, with a jointly-established product roadmap developed with Trienpont, your unique software tools will stay up to date with developments in your business or industry. We can always add, remove or adjust features and functionality based on feedback from your clients, team members, and you.
