There’s an old acronym in sales: ABC, or “always be closing.” We have a new acronym for you: ABR. It stands for “always be recruiting” and is the new, best way to find top talent for your company. Experts say that it costs up to 50% of an employee’s annual salary to recruit and fill a vacancy. It probably costs more if you factor in the time of screening potential new hires, training time, and more. Costs can also rise if you are recruiting for senior-level positions versus entry-level ones. The old method of finding employees doesn’t work well anymore. You can’t rely on help wanted ads, resumes, reference letters, and a slew of interviews to find your next superstar. Sure, you may use all of these techniques and more, but you need to do more to reach into your networks to find the right people to fill talent vacancies. Companies need the best and brightest employees to innovate in their industries. People are the engine that runs your business. To find the right people, constant recruiting and enacting techniques to keep in front of people who may be interested in working for your company are great ways to always […]

You probably know the signs that tell you when it’s time to get new tires for your car. The tread appears worn. The car starts pulling to the right or to the left. It’s easier to skid on the roads in snow, ice, or rain storms. Sure enough, you check the records, and it’s been four years since you last upgraded your car’s tires. Time for new ones.

Signs It’s Time for a Chance: When to Upgrade Your ERP System Best-in-class organizations, or those that perform significantly above industry average, are more likely to upgrade their software than the average organization. If you’re striving for best in class performance, it’s time to “check the tires” of your ERP system and see if you spot any signals that it’s time for an upgrade. Lower productivity: Perhaps the ERP system helped boost productivity when you first installed it. Now, however, it is just getting in the way of […]

Are you still struggling to close out your monthly books, not days but weeks later? Worried about compliance? Wondering whether you are leaking money because you aren’t tracking expenses properly? These are common questions among business owners in all industries. Their companies struggle with financial management, perhaps getting the basics right, but not using enough of the tools at their disposal to track services, manage expenses, or keep up with their invoices. Let’s take a look at the seven most frequently encountered problems and how the right software, such as Sage Intacct, can help you solve them. Taking too long to close the books. According to an infographic from Sage Intacct, just five years ago, 70% of all companies were able to close out their monthly books in just six days. Today, that number has dropped to just 50%. The solution: Use a cloud-based system for financial management. Cloud-based systems that integrate with operations, CRM, and other systems constantly update as new data is received, enabling you to work rapidly with real-time information. Information is also shared across the cloud so you’re never working on stand-alone or siloed information. Siloed information: Speaking of siloed information, that’s also a problem in […]
