October, 31 2022

Software is the intangible part of IT and computing. This name is also given to the set of data, procedures and guidelines that allow different tasks to be performed in a computer system.

Management software are computer systems, integrated by multiple tools, that perform administrative tasks and simplify all the operational, productive and bureaucratic processes of an organization.

In a global and digitized world like ours, the importance of software in companies is indisputable, regardless of the sector of our business.

And in the case of franchises, these types of tools facilitate daily tasks such as order processing, sales, stock replenishment, accounting, schedule creation, the establishment of delivery routes or the administration of payment gateways.

4 Reasons why your company's software matters

The possibility of optimizing human and economic resources, as well as their linkage to other applications, make management software indispensable in those projects that are starting out in the market or that want to digitalize some of their areas. 

The reasons to have this type of software in your company are:


1. Maximize productivity

Thanks to your management software you will be able to perform multiple administration and accounting tasks in a simple and intuitive way, saving time and effort.

This type of program also eliminates duplicate work and redundant information. This allows employees to spend more time on analysis and benchmarking, which ultimately translates into higher production, better results, a much more competitive company and a more motivated workforce. This way you can focus on what matters: your company's leadership.


2. Streamlined administrative processes

Communication between different areas of the company can be a real headache, especially when it comes to sharing data or basic documents to work together.

Normally, the administrative processes of companies follow different protocols. Enterprise software allows such protocols to be automatic and flexible. 

In this way, the different areas can perform their functions independently, but with a series of common elements and tools that facilitate the feedback of information.


3. Data analytics

The importance of software for the enterprise is closely linked to data collection and analysis. 

In fact, management software is characterized precisely by the fact that it offers extensive, detailed, and complete information, making it easy to consult and establish general comparisons.

Analyzing these metrics helps to make decisions about our business based on real and objective data. 


4. Process automation

Business management software allows you to manage projects, tasks, resources, workflow, content or processes automatically. 

Process automation is synonymous with efficiency, because we can do the same tasks as before in less time and with fewer resources. 

In addition to reducing time and costs in the execution of tasks, automated processes minimize the risk of human error and allow more concrete results to be tracked.


What about franchises? 3 additional reasons

Franchising is a business model with specific characteristics.

In these situations, management software is particularly effective and offers a number of advantages, among them:


1. Franchisee Training

Continuous training is a key pillar to ensure the smooth running of franchises. 

The fact that all franchises share the same management software facilitates the training of collaborators and entrepreneurs, who can learn its functionalities together and interactively.  

In fact, training helps franchisees become familiar with the franchise philosophy and business model, and allows them to successfully participate in its day-to-day activities.


2. Cohesion and standardization of processes

Franchise software is the easiest way to standardize processes.

Cohesive processes are of higher quality, since errors detected in them can be effectively resolved. 

Likewise, the standardization of processes thanks to a management software is key to: 

  • To promote the development of the company.
  • Avoid duplication.
  • Reducing work stress among workers.
  • Improve processes.


3. Centralization of information

Centralizing information unifies communication channels and favors the relationship between the different departments of a company. 

In all cases, but especially in franchises, this facilitates a more organized business, greater integration of departments, the possibility of analyzing the business in real time or the option of consulting and comparing data more quickly.
