Do not brush out the role of technology. Technology will surely play a big role in the success of your business. From accounting to human resources (time logs, etc), you’ll need technological tools to handle the job for you the easier way. This is one of my earliest mistakes. I did not take care of accounting. I also did not look at the importance of having the employees log in/out of your office premisses.
In the first few years, I use Simply Accounting Pro to record my transactions. We also have a software for the marketing department to manage the client contacts. Our ID’s also work as our log in/out tool via a purchased computerized equipment. And, coolness, our door has numerical key in lock for safety and security.
The earlier you integrate technology to your process, the better. Don’t save up by not buying these software or hardware tools. It’s worth the investment in the long run.
