Recently, I worked on a software customization project in preparation for implementing new software. I realized rather quickly that the input methods that were being used were a bit confusing. The data entry process had too many paths. People who enter the data can become frustrated if they have too many decisions to make.
I have learned that work flow set up can be as much an art as it is a science. Programming computer software is very scientific. Art comes into play when you try to make a complicated piece of software simple to use for all users. As Mairzy Doats' writer, Marion Altieri, often says, "run fast, turn left..."
I want to do the best-possible job of advising you, my readers, about the tools and methods that will help grow your equine business--so I've been scouting around to find great computer programs that will make your office time less and your barn time, more. I think I'm on to something, which I'll tell you about as soon as I have all the information in front of me.
Keeping accounting records should not be a chore. Leave your pitchfork at the barn. You need something that is easy to use and keeps you in the race.
