8 ways to save time (and money) in your business


Like everyone, business owners are always looking for ways to save time.  Every minute spent on admin or fixing mistakes is a minute that could be spent on business-building work.

When time really is money, it is worth finding ways to reduce those tedious and repetitive tasks - and technology is the answer.

  1. Better billing - Billing can be a huge time-waster.  Using a digital accounting system to extract data from supplier emails and auto-populate invoices can save hours each week.
  2. Streamline expense claims - Use a digital solution to automate the expense claims process, and your team saves time submitting receipts, approving expenses and dealing with mistakes. 
  3. Reduce human error - Manual data entry is fraught with errors.  Eliminate the issues by automating key admin tasks, and spend more time on data analysis, not data entry.
  4. Automate approvals - Streamline bank reconciliation with an automated tool, so you don't waste time manually approving individual transactions.
  5. Quicker invoicing - Invoices and late payments take up a huge amount of time.  With an automated invoicing platform, that time is reduced significantly - and manual follow-ups for late payment are eliminated.
  6. Payroll perfection - Use your accounting software to upload staff details and calculate tax contributions.  You will not only save significant chunks of time, but you will avoid mistakes.
  7. Quick, accurate taxes - Digitising the tax process can make a real difference.  Instead of Excel spreadsheets, receipts and physical documents, everything is accessible through your software. 
  8. Better access to business data - With smart software, you get accurate business data wherever you are.  No more going back to the office to check a number, getting back to clients with final details, or reworking quotes because the numbers were wrong. 

Want to save time in your business?  We can get you set up with the software to make it simple.

    - Nelly Evans,Powdercoat Select
  • "Nelly (my wife) told me she had signed up for some business training and I told her it was a waste of time and money. I wasn't interested in doing it at all because both our businesses are firing on all cylinders, but to show her support, I went along to the first workshop and I was impressed. Nelly and I have been doing a lot of talking, but we realised that we never had the right mindset to take action. - Read more
