'The most fundamental truth about business is that business is about customers, creating them and keeping them.
Without customers there is NO business. To enable your business to thrive and grow you need to be able to allocate as much time as possible towards creating new and keeping existing customers, this can be more complex than it sounds. Our services will help free up the time you need to focus on the most important part of your business - its' customers.
'In New Zealand, roughly 25% of small to medium sized enterprises (fewer than 20 employees) FAIL within 3 years.
failure - noun
the neglect or omission of expected or required action
This failure rate doesn't have much to do with lack of creativity or a bad business idea but rather is due to a lack of day to day business knowledge, a hesitancy to ask for help, and a lack of knowledge about who to ask for guidance...
Why Choose Business Fundamentals?
We've been working with SME's for some time now and understand all the ups and downs of owning/operating your own business. We've seen the huge increases in productivity that new technology, especially computing and the web, can bring to a company but we've also seen the costs.
Those costs come in a variety of guises, but generally can be put under the umbrella of expertise.
- No expertise in understanding the pros and cons of implementing particular software
- No expertise in the configuration/installation of software
- No expertise in evaluating software to see if it is fit for purpose
Bottom line? We've been there and have the expertise to help you avoid the pitfalls and problems that computerisation can present.
