At Sage, we meet with small business owners regularly to get a complete picture of how their businesses run. We’ve had countless discussions about the tools these business owners use and why they chose them. These are businesses of all types, sizes and ages; but do you know what is common among them?
To some degree, they all use a mix of tools that are either the wrong fit or not connected with each other…or both. One conversation that comes to mind was with a consultant who was using desktop accounting software that she described as “too much” for her needs.

She struggled with sharing pertinent information with her business partner who was in another city. The result was frustration and wasted time as she tried to make it all work, and she’s not alone.

You and your business could probably benefit from having more of your attention put on finding opportunities and servicing customers, right? Well, if you’re like most small business owners, you will appreciate the time-savings and efficiency that consolidating some of your tools into one or two leaner, better-fitting apps will bring you.
