Choosing, and using, the right software, can have a huge impact on every aspect of what your business does, how it operates and ultimately how much money it makes.
As an unbiased, neutral software consultancy, Pearl Lemon Consultants can help you determine what your business’ software is doing for you now, how well it’s performing, where improvements can be made and just which softwares can be utilized to make them.
But that’s not all, we can also help evaluate how well your personnel are utilizing the software you’ve given them to work with, and whether making changes, either in the software itself, or the way you train your employees to use it.
And this is all the tip of the iceberg. As your software consultancy provider, we can do a lot more too. Contact us today, and we’ll be happy to tell you more.
You’ll find a lot of software consultants out there offering you their services. But far too many of them come along with a serious flaw: they have an agenda. That agenda is to sell you on specific software, either because they work for a software company or they have some form of affiliate relationship with one.
This is really something called consultative selling, which is fine in a way, but it’s not going to provide you with the unbiased, totally neutral perspective that an ecommerce consultancy like Pearl Lemon Consultants will.
If we think a certain software will benefit your business, we don’t care if it’s free or costs thousands. It’s our job to find the right software solutions for you, end of story. Only with this kind of impartiality can you be sure you are really getting the right information about the software solutions and implementations that will truly benefit your business.
Before you employ someone to do a job for you, any job, you should think about a lot of things. For example, you must determine whether their costs are within your budget and whether they understand your objectives and needs.
More importantly, you must determine whether hiring them would truly be beneficial to your company and offer a good return on your investment. Here are some advantages of hiring a software consultancy like Pearl Lemon Consultants.
After speaking with a software consultant about your company’s objectives and goals, they can devise a plan to get you there as quickly as possible. However, doing a lot of planning is just as crucial.
While you may be more concerned with the here and now, we will always keep your long-term needs and the big picture in mind.
We can also help you prioritize your business needs versus your wants, depending on critical aspects such as the customer base you want to attract to your website, timelines you may be working with and the manpower you have, and might need, to get everything you hope to achieve done.
Technology is constantly evolving, and that is especially true when it comes to software. If the software you currently use is too old, too limited and if yours isn’t keeping up with what your competitors are doing, you are already at a competitive disadvantage. Which means you are probably losing out on potential revenue. A good software consultant can help you save money while also assisting you in making more.
However, not all older software needs to be replaced just because there is something new that claims to be better. If something you have in place is still the best choice, and that’s truer more often than you might think, we’ll tell you, and won’t suggest change for the sake of it (like some of those consultative salespeople will.)
As an experienced software consultancy firm, we also understand that, while technology and software is vital to the running and survival of your business, the people who use it are equally so. Even the best software is usually only the best if those using it really understand how to do so.
Don’t worry if you or your employees aren’t particularly tech-savvy. For this reason, our software consultant’s services frequently include training, either on existing softwares that your people have been under utilizing or, if we encourage you to make changes, on whatever new initiatives you bring in.
You’re probably already wearing a lot of hats as a business owner. And if IT isn’t your thing, it’s easy to spend too much time on it, diverting your attention away from more pressing matters that you do excel at.
Your Pearl Lemon Consultants software consultant will give you the opportunity to increase your operational focus. They’ll take care of the software ‘stuff’ on an as needed basis, leaving you free to work on the business boosting stuff you should be focused on.
A good consultant should be someone you can call on when you need them. Pearl Lemon Consultants usually act as our client’s ongoing software consultancy, stepping in and offering our expertise and advice on a regular basis. As we mentioned, the world of software moves fast, but we can make sure your business stays up to speed.
The process of making a large software change, such as switching platforms or adding functionality to an existing one, can be tedious and time-consuming. It is also often well over the head of the not so tech-savvy.
Working with a software consultancy like Pearl Lemon Software consultants gives you access not only to experts who can help you find the right software, but who will ensure that any software changes that need to be made are implemented quickly, efficiently and properly.
They also relieve you of responsibilities such as project management and collaboration with other vendors and third parties, and will even ensure that everyone who is going to be making use of the software is properly trained and ready to do so.
