– Happy Holidays from Commercient!

December is finally here and the countdown to Christmas has begun! It’s the season of goodwill and giving, and that means it’s also the season of holiday parties, finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones, and all of your favorite holiday sweets and treats. In addition to this, it’s also one of the busiest times of year for business managers.

While the Christmas season is a special time of year to spend with friends and family it also represents a huge business opportunity for companies everywhere. As a business manager, you want to capitalize on the benefits of the season, but when was the last time you updated your holiday business management guide?

Before you allow visions of sugar plums to start dancing in your head, why don’t you give these four tips for managing your business during the holidays a try?

  • Automate Everything
    Anything and everything that can be automated during the holiday season should be automated. If you’re in retail or manufacturing, chances are you’re going to be working at breakneck speed during the build-up to Christmas with less staff than usual. Minimize manual processes, save time, and ensure a consistent experience for your customers over the holidays.
  • Be Flexible
    No matter how much time you’ve spent planning and preparing for the holidays, something unforseen is going to happen. So plan for that too! Remember to keep your cool and have some fundamental steps in place to help you handle the unexpected. Ensure your team is equipped to deal with the most likely problems you could face and have a pre-drawn plan of action prepared in the event one pops up.
  • Keep Track Of Sales And Expenses
    Things are going to be moving quickly and that can make it more difficult than usual to stay on-top of everyday business tasks. Again, this is where automation and technology can lend a helping hand. It’s important that business managers to have the proper tools in place to help keep track of unexpected, last minute expenses.

Get In The Christmas Spirit
This should be the easiest tip to implement on this list. It’s also the most important. Business manager or not, everybody has the power to bring a little Christmas cheer to work during the season. Your attitude will spread to your co-workers and customers and no matter how busy you are this year, it can still be just as enjoyable as ever.

We’re kicking off the month of December with a revealing post about how Santa really keeps the North Pole running so smoothly! Okay, maybe we don’t know exactly how the big man runs his show but in the spirit of the holiday season we can use him as an example regarding how integrating your ERP and CRM system will benefit your business.

Secrets From Santa’s Workshop

Have you ever wondered how Santa Claus stays so organized during the mad rush of the holiday season? How does he manage his workers and activity so efficiently during this busy time? It’s no surprise to us – he operates out of a fully integrated ERP and CRM software system.

By integrating his ERP and CRM software together and leveraging this power, Santa is able to ensure the workshop is running smoothly, efficiently, and all of his workers are happy – because we all know happy and engaged elves equal happy children on Christmas day.

Here are five secrets to integrating ERP and CRM software that help ole’ St. Nick overcome global delivery issues, mission-critical deadlines, seasonal spikes, and a sugar-crazed, distributed workforce:

  • Because Santa’s ERP and CRM systems are fully-integrated, he receives real-time notifications from every department that keep him out of the red. With the exception of that snazzy suit of course.
  • Integrated ERP and CRM helps the workshop floor hum and make sure a world of custom requests get to all the right children.
  • Finance keeps the team happy, the supply chain flowing, and bells jingling since the integration of Santa’s favorite ERP and CRM.
  • Real-time access to all the data they need whenever they need it on the device of their choice keeps the elve’s jolly all year round.
  • And last but certainly not least, with a fully-integrated software system, updating the naughty and list is a piece of cake.
