As Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, it is only appropriate for me to bless your eyes with a themed blog post about your business data and assets.

Now light some candles, turn off your office lights and press play on your Michael Bublé album…

As your company grows and relationships blossom you need to take more care of your assets; whether they are digital assets, contract and supplier data or training and equipment documents, they need to be handled with care before business errors are flagged and it ultimately breaks your heart!

The software industry is offering so many solutions for so many common problems around data management; because in this new technology age we need to know and get data quicker and in a way that is going to save us money.

So what are the favourite flavours (functions) in the heart shaped chocolate boxes (information management systems) this year?

  • Hold me closer (Limitless Data Storage)

Red roses, blue violets, campaign assets, branding images, contract information and supplier documents. It doesn’t matter what kind of asset or business data, it is now easier to hold and secure information electronically right at your fingertips rather than through complex paper workflows and aged office files.

  • Floating on Cloud Nine (Cloud-Computing)

Keep your assets floating on cloud nine and reduce your costs. Cloud-computing enables off-premises access and reduces the cramming of hard drives. Your team will be in a state of blissful happiness with easy access to unlimited amounts of information and assets.

  • Love at first sight (Visibility)

Seeing the important information should be easy. An efficient and central data management system allows complete search functionality across entire data and assets; helping you gain a clear visibility on the most up to date information and documents.

  • ‘How do you like your eggs in the morning?’ (Reporting)

You need a management system that can be customised to the way you like it. Reporting functions that are customised to your requirements of analysis can improve the way you handle business. Become more agile and gain complete control over all the information associated with your business needs to in turn reduce overall risk.

  • ‘I found my treasure in you’ (Savings)

Bronze, Silver, Gold – No, it’s endless amounts of savings which can be delivered through a better and more powerful information management system.

A simple hello could lead into a million special things.

You need stay on top your intellectual property. Introducing a management system will create workflows to streamline your business processes.
