HR Software and Other Tech Tips to Save Money

Implementing a great HR software system is just one of the ways that companies – and small businesses in particular – can use technology to save time and money. Visit http://pcrecruiter.net/site to learn more.

Business of all sizes are always looking for new and different ways to save money, but small businesses have a more vested interest in doing so, because they typically have less money to spend. Fortunately, according to an article by Mashable, there are some technology-related steps small businesses can take to save time and money.

“By its very nature, technology is intended to make complicated things simple and expensive things affordable,” the article notes. “Think about sending a bill to a customer; back in the day, it took paper, correction fluid, a stamp and a trip to the mailbox to accomplish this task. These days, it can be as quick and cheap as sending an e-mail.”

Here are five things small business can do to save money and time by using technology:

1. Go paperless – Using paper and old-style filing systems for invoicing, accounting, human resources and other business processes just makes things more complicated than necessary. And the more paper you use, the more time someone has to spend sorting through that paper to find information. By going paperless, you can keep better track of your records and more easily save and organize your data. Using a paper-free system can help you be more green, save time, and save money on office supplies.

2. Go distributed – There are various technologies available to help you work from remote locations, such as instant messaging, VOIP calls, video chats, project management software, and cloud document storage. These can save money, allow employees to work from home, and easily put you in touch with co-workers during urgent situations when you’re away from the office.

3. Go open source – Free and open-source software is less expensive to buy and maintain. At the same time, the programs are similar to the expensive industry standards, but your clients will never know the difference and you’ll end up saving a ton of money.

4. Go beta – Beta software is often still in the development stage, but usually works well and can have fewer problems than major software programs. Another plus – many companies let you try beta software for free.

5. Go social – Creating a page for your company on free social media resources, such as Facebook and Twitter, is a great way to promote your business to an up-and-coming audience at no cost. Aside from reaching potential tech-savvy employees and consumers of your product, you may also be able to connect with more industry experts than in a traditional setting.
