Business Management Software is the Key to Staying One Step Ahead of the Game
As a digitally-connected nation, it’s so important to keep up-to-date with technology advancements and be at the forefront of the industry, constantly tapping into new ideas and innovations.
MINDBODY, a business management software solution and app that connects consumers to these businesses, was created to help entrepreneurs and business owners in the wellness sector manage all aspects of their work efficiently; including offering fully automated systems designed to streamline admin, staffing, reporting and boost client recruitment and retention.
Technology frees up time and energy for business owners, allowing them to focus on what really matters, engaging with their customers.
Recent research¹ revealed that 72% of SMEs are confident that the UK is a great place to start a small business, but they face a plethora of challenges in a rapidly changing political, regulatory and economic landscape. Interestingly, in the same report over a quarter (26%) of SMEs highlighted late payments as the most critical factor for financial success.
The answer lies in technology and innovative software, such as MINDBODY, to do the job for you; incorporating this into an overall business strategy is certainly something entrepreneurs should be doing.
To combine technology into a business effectively and use it to not only influence consumers habits, but manage payments, calendars and recruitment efficiently, business owners should be actively seeking the best software on the market, and here’s why.
Choose software that can handle high volume business
Invest in software that can fully cater to your business’s needs. For example, MINDBODY has some of the world’s largest, global brands on board; these brands can publish their services in the app, Google and Bing searches, plus other online partners. Choosing software which is not only feature-rich, but also gives you access to a huge consumer marketplace is a massive bonus.

Getting in front of current and potential new customers is what helps to drive a company forward. Ultimately, anything you can do to simplify your business interactions will be a huge help in the future. The free MINDBODY app lists all the companies using MINDBODY software. Consumers who have downloaded the app can search for services based in their location, then easily click on a business, search their available appointments, and then book and pay for the services directly through the app.
Make life easier for customers
Whether you are targeting a B2B or B2C audience, ensuring operations run smoothly is vital. The overall user experience is what sets you apart from your competitors, so incorporating innovative technology into your offering is how you set yourself apart and offer consumers the slick experience they expect nowadays.
Set your business apart
In an ever-changing landscape it’s paramount that you stand out. What makes you different? What can your product do? These are questions that you should recognise and continually seek to develop, while constantly relaying the answers to your team and those investing in your business.
Futureproof your success
Your success is down to a number of factors, but by choosing to invest in the right software, which will stand the test of time, and continue to advance in line with consumer behaviour, you are choosing to adopt the same attitude.
