Managing a small business can be a daunting task. Entrepreneurs have great ideas and plans, but they sometimes lack the proper management skills for day-to-day activities. Learning a few essential operational techniques can greatly enhance a small business’s operations and turn it into a highly successful company. Among the most important pieces of small business management are the business information systems (BIS), hiring employees, and continuing business education.
Business Information System
A business information system (BIS) is the software a small business uses to track its company financial information. BIS includes accounting, payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable and purchasing. This software allows company management to extrapolate information from different parts of the business. Managers analyze this information for profitability or effectiveness.
