What is your number one IT tip for businesses? I fundamentally believe that IT can help streamline business processes. If they look hard enough, businesses can find a use for custom software or off the shelf software to increase efficiencies. Examples include: a business that distributes widgets which they take orders for out in the field. An application like a ordering system is ideal and is able to replace the normal paper based order system which is prone to messy hand writing loosing of order forms etc.
