How is this top 5 composed?
1. Your business processes
Start by defining which business processes should be facilitated by the software. Is it for example finance, sales, human resources or customer service? The list of processes will give you a good understanding of what type of business software you need.
2. Number of invoices and offers
Take a good look at the number of invoices and quotations that can be created and sent within the program. With a number of providers this is limited and you have to pay more if you want to send more.
3. Your budget
The costs heavily depends on the type of business software you need. An accounting program costs about 10-20 euros a month, but more complex systems like CRM and ERP systems will be much more expensive. Create a wish list with must-haves, should-haves and could-haves using the MoSCow method. In this way you prevent paying for features you won’t use in the future.
4. Integration with other software
Do you already use other software for, for example, payments on your website or do you keep track of your customer contacts in a business software package? If so, see if a link is possible. That makes it much more convenient.
