Overview

How to Computerize Your Small Business—even if you don’t know a thing about computers Computers have changed the world of business. They’ve helped increase productivity, improve recordkeeping, reduce paperwork, track sales, and control inventory. They’ve helped people work more efficiently and profitably than ever before. Computerizing your business can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make, but it’s also one of the trickiest. The options are many and the choices can be bewildering. How to Computerize Your Small Business takes the mystery and anxiety out of computerization. It tells you in plain English everything you need to know to get &quote;up and running&quote; quickly. You’ll learn:
  • Whether or not you should computerize your business—what tasks a computer can and cannot do for you
  • How computers, software, and peripheral devices work together—a clear, nontechnical introduction to the basics
  • How to select the hardware and software that are right for you—what key things to look for among the latest computers, communications devices, and word processing, spreadsheet, and database applications
  • How and where to shop for a computer—the different types of vendors
  • How to maximize your investment—the best ways to use your computer, complete with real-life success stories
  • And much more, including sample system configurations for various retail and service businesses, and detailed checklists to help you buy and set up your computer system
