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.
