Like bespoke software, bespoke databases can work wonders for your business. Just imagine how much simpler life would be if you could do everything with a few clicks of your mouse, swipes on your screen or taps on your keyboard.
Why use a bespoke database?
Using a bespoke database can help you better enforce processes, reduce manual errors, control administration rights, get an exact fit for your needs, and give you room for growth, among other things. They not only benefit your business but your customers as well.
How can bespoke databases help you?
Because bespoke databases can crunch huge numbers, they allow you to tackle the most challenging problems and make better decisions based on accurate information. They also reduce the amount of work many of your employees have to do. You no longer have to perform routine tasks or worry about forgetting to do something, because you can automate these processes. You don’t need to manually fill in forms and other documents. And because your database acts as a central storage that can be accessed from anywhere at any time, anyone who needs information can access it quickly and easily and without having to travel anywhere.
You can even put built-in controls on your database to track who did what and when. This allows you not just greater control of your data but also safeguards it from misuse or abuse. Unauthorised users can’t change data in your database if they don’t have the right to. Human errors can be reduced too, leaving your data safe and accurate. This is especially true if you have backup procedures, preventing you from losing anything you may need. And since you can define the level of security on your database, you can make sure your data is intact all the time, giving you peace of mind.
Because databases are by nature organised, you won’t have a hard time finding what you need. Managing staff will be a breeze too because all your information can be accessed from your database. Interactive dashboards can easily help you identify who’s meeting targets and who’s not.
Finally, bespoke databases are easy to scale up or down. They can grow along with your business. For instance, adding more products or services to your existing catalogue would be very easy unlike if you’re using off-the-shelf solutions like Excel, which isn’t built for expansion.
All these will, of course, translate to fewer costs and much greater profits. To find out more about the budgeting and cost of database creation, visit our database prices page.
How can bespoke databases benefit your customers?
At the end of the day, a business can only succeed if it has loyal customers. So how can using a bespoke database help you keep your customers satisfied?
Customers want the best for their money. You can give them something your competitors cannot—access to their information when they want it.
You can also use your database to better understand your customers. Tracking their purchasing histories can help you proactively offer them goods or services they are likely to be interested in. Customers like facts and figures. Use the information in your database to your advantage, especially feedback from your customers. Use the bad feedback to improve and the good feedback to sell more.
Don’t let repetitive and minute tasks get your business down. Though bespoke solutions can cost more, they can also let your business gain more.
