Efficient ways to handle accounts and automation were the focus for the latest Women in Business Regional Network dinner for the McLaren Vale chapter.
The function was held at a new venue, SOURC’D Wine and Coffee Bar at Aldinga Beach.
The guest speaker, Port Lincoln member Samantha Docking of BOSS (Business Office Support Systems), was a wealth of information providing details of what employer records needed to be kept and what paperwork (in the cloud, of course) was needed for financial transactions.
Sam and her business work with many clients to help create efficiencies by having the right “digital stack” with assistance provided in choosing the apps and ensuring the apps can be integrated with one another.
She advised those at the dinner to investigate any new apps thoroughly by firstly identifying what the business needed and then trialling new apps to ensure they did the tasks they were required for.
She said building in simple efficiencies and automation created opportunities for not only more time to focus on core business, or to relax, but also the chance to explore growth opportunities.
The next McLaren Vale chapter event will be a lunch on Wednesday, March 31 at Magpie Springs Winery and Gallery at Hope Forest. The presentation will focus on how to get finance for your business.
