As a business owner, it can be very difficult to step away even for a short time for a little rest and relaxation. You are keeping track of a lot after all, and training someone to do the same while you're away just seems like one of those daunting tasks that it's impossible to make time for. So why is it so difficult? You have to relax and spend time with your family and friends. It turns out that there is a solution to this problem, and it will simultaneously make your business money.
The first step is to identify your important business metrics. You've probably already done this to some extent, and you only need to track 5 to 10 solid KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) to start noticing a difference. Indicators such as Daily Net Income, Number of New Customers Per Day, Open Work Orders, and Unpaid Invoices are just a few examples. Keeping track of metrics like these is no different than keeping track of your personal bank account. In other words, if you're not paying attention, you can lose money regardless of how much revenue you have coming in.
The second step is to Automate the collection of all this data. Yes, it seems like a no brainer to keep track of something like "how much money your company has made for the day", but if it takes you or someone on your team an hour to generate that number, you're never going to keep up with it. You'll begin to feel like there is a better way you could be spending that hour (which there is), and the metric will be ignored. As soon as you stop tracking it, your business will lose money.
Luckily, we live in the 21st century, and we have amazing tools like Tracker-CORE that can easily automate the collection of whatever customized metric you are trying to keep track of. Now, instead of spending an hour to generate one metric, you can simply pull out your phone and glance at a dashboard like the one above to see all of your key performance indicators in one place. Only now, they are updated automatically and in real time.
Now you can take a worry free vacation. At a glance, from wherever you may be, you can tell just how well your business is running. Better yet, hand this dashboard over to someone on your team, and it's like giving them a blueprint on how to run your company in your absence.
