How can the self-diagnostic tool help me manage my business?

Before you start buying or subscribing to "Software as a Service" (SaaS) software, it is imperative to clearly identify your needs and compare what is sold on the market. As the offer is abundant, it is easy to get lost. Some software may have limited functionalities and may not offer integrations with other software. With the self-diagnosis tool you will be able to make the right choice for your needs. 

What are the things to consider for a company that wants to start automating?

First, have a plan of what you want to accomplish in a more automated and structured way in the short and medium term. Then, choose your SaaS software based on its ability to integrate with other software you covet for the present and future. Then, surround yourself with specialists in cloud software, automation and interoperability in various fields (business management, IT resources, accounting, project management, etc.). And finally, take an interest in the process and be part of it; detachment is the worst enemy of automation.

Interoperability is the ability of a product or system, whose interfaces are fully known, to work with other existing or future products or systems without access or implementation restrictions.

It is important to distinguish between "interoperability" and "compatibility". To be simple, we can say that compatibility is a vertical notion that makes a tool work in a given environment while respecting all the characteristics, and interoperability is a transversal notion that allows various tools to be able to communicate - when we know why, and how, they can work together.

In other words, we can only talk about the interoperability of a product or a system if we know all its interfaces in full.

The advantages of SaaS are multiple. We can talk about cost savings, because they do not require any upfront costs. We can also talk about accessibility. Furthermore, all data is always there, without duplication from one software to another. The most important advantage is probably the growth with use. Indeed, it is possible to add users or to access more advanced functionalities as and when one feels the need.

SaaS does have its drawbacks, however, especially at the start-up stage. Some services are exceptions, but you usually have to configure your software yourself, and that requires some basic knowledge. Gaps can also occur when the Internet or on-demand service provider's service is down. It then becomes impossible to access your work tools. Finally, as the integration of these software into the business processes can be a long term objective for the company, it is imperative to master the application programming interface (API) and to develop bridges between the software so that they communicate.

The good news is that most of the drawbacks can be circumvented by using a certified SaaS consultant or specialists who know about interoperability.

An SME can acquire an automated invoicing system or a cloud-based accounting system at a low cost and still respect a certain internal rigor, because such software no longer requires the purchase of an expensive license. All you have to do is pay a subscription fee to start using it, in the logic of software as a service (SaaS). As long as the company pays its monthly or annual fee, it can enjoy the service.

Yes, it is! As long as you use 1 or more applications, connections are possible. An email box, a cloud accounting software and even a Facebook page are examples of applications that can be opened to automation. This applies to start-ups as well as to growing businesses.
