Old School vs. New School Storage Unit SoftwarePublished on May 13, 2015
Some methods are tried, true, and fit that old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” others have become obsolete for a reason. When it comes to managing your storage units, clients, and your business, there are a lot of things you should take into consideration about how you manage the back end of your business. To be certain, entire business empires have been built with little more than pens, paper, and due diligence; but the advantages afforded today’s businessperson are abundant, and sometimes overwhelming.
Most people will be familiar with your more common business applications, even if it’s just from managing personal finances. QuickBooks is almost required for business both small and large, and there are more tax software programs than one can reasonably shake a stick at. Then there’s PayPal which acts as bank, bookkeeper, and go-between for independent contractors, their clients, and even small businesses. And when you’re using PayPal, there come a slew of specialized bookkeeping programs. All these things used to be done with pen and paper, now they’re digitized if not handled entirely online.
That’s not to say that there’s absolutely no place for pen and paper and files full of folders, I myself am partial to legal pads and the Pilot G-2 (extra fine), but in the 21st century do you really want to be keeping track of your storage units and clients with a pad of paper or even Excel?
