75 percent of U.S. employees do not think they have access to the right technology that can improve their productivity. DesignRush rounded up the top types of software than can improve employee efficiency and ultimately grow businesses faster.

“By taking the time to understand their current shortcomings and partnering with the best software developers, brands will be able to maximize their efforts across all departments and grow their business at a faster rate.” - DesignRush CEO and Founder Gabriel Shaoolian

Studies show that 75 percent of U.S. employees don’t think that they have access to the correct technology that can improve their own productivity – and when employees aren’t running at peak efficiency, brands could be losing money or stunting overall growth.

However, when brands invest in certain types of software – both for employees and for the company – that can improve efficiency and expand their business at a more rapid rate., a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, discovered the top 5 types of software that can help businesses work better, collaborate effectively, and ultimately increase revenue.

The top 5 business-centric software programs of 2019 are:

1. Productivity & Collaboration Software

Productivity and collaboration software is geared toward employees, and helps them work together more effectively. This software can span a variety of tasks, including product management, cloud communication, document management, digital file storage and sharing, and more.

Examples of productivity software include Microsoft 365, G Suite and Slack.

2. Accounting Software

Brands of all sizes need proper accounting software. This will help them track employee salaries, department budgets, general income and overhead costs, and empower them to better track how the company as a whole is performing.

Common types of accounting software include Xero, QuickBooks, NetSuite, Sage Business Cloud Accounting and SAP ERP.

3. Customer Relationship Management Systems

Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM) are a complex database that enables brands to streamline communications with clients or business partners. Businesses can use CRMs to store customer information, manage client accounts, take notes on partnerships, and more. CRMs tend to help with improving consumer retention rates and increasing sales.

Some well-known CRMs are Salesforce, Zendesk, Zoho, and more.

4. eCommerce Software

Each and every eCommerce business utilizes some form of eCommerce software. This is because dedicated eCommerce software helps online retailers track inventory, place restocking orders, manage sales, track shipping requests, and more.

eCommerce-specific software could be a standalone program or integrated with a web platform, such as Magento, Shopify, Drupal or another provider.

5. Website Design & Development Software

Modern businesses should, first and foremost, invest in proper website design and development, which is the most important form of software they will need. Websites act as both a tool for consumers to interact with brands and as a marketing device, promoting the business, its core values, its products and its services.

Software developers who are creating a digital platform – such as a website or mobile app – will help brands understand which hosting platform will support their business and personalize the interface to maximize brand success.

Brands can partner with a top software development firm to determine the types of software that will benefit them as well as customize their programs to suit their specific needs.

“Over half of all businesses outsource software development tasks,” says DesignRush CEO and Founder Gabriel Shaoolian. “By taking the time to understand their current shortcomings and partnering with the best software developers, brands will be able to maximize their efforts across all departments and grow their business at a faster rate.”
