Use The Economic Slowdown As An Opportunity For Profitability
Given that most of us have had to make tough decisions lately, we should now look towards how we can make those decisions work for us. Software solutions often project a Return On Investment (ROI) based largely around staff reductions. If you have made those staff cuts already or are making that tough decision soon, you should look towards how this can benefit you long-term.
There is no doubt that the right barcoding solution will help you turnover more stock and output more orders with less staff. So biting the bullet now while you're lean will give you a strong competitive advantage when the good times roll around in 2009. While your competitors are adding staff and incurring more and more overheads you can remain lean, enjoying the benefits of the decisive actions you took while the going was tough.
