Business Administrator Software Steps Up for SMEs

2010-04-15

April 15, 2010, Press Dispensary. Whatever the state of the economy, businesses must keep on top of their administrative tasks. SMEs, in particular, cry out for software that can make them truly efficient and well-informed, without breaking the bank. To help them handle everything from customer relationship management to finance and stock control, Chalestra’s 'Business Administrator' software, a popular and proven business management system, is being released in a faster and more powerful new version.

First launched a decade ago, Business Administrator has gone from strength to strength within the SME sector. Most unusually, it is an all-in-one suite offering a customer relationship management system, financial administration package, stock control package, stock order package and much more, all fully integrated and sold at a single, low annual fee. And Chalestra has been busy during the downturn, commissioning its developers to rebuild Business Administrator's engines, making it even more attractive to users.

Business Administrator’s interface has long been praised by users for its colourful and functional nature and has now been taken to the next level with a new range of meticulously designed controls. Faster and more powerful than before, the upgraded Business Administrator works in a more natural, intuitive way, with a more organic look.

Meanwhile, Business Administrator has become more reliable in its latest edition and is increasingly crash-resistant. A failure in one part of the system doesn’t cause Business Administrator to stop working: the system simply provides a quick message to say that something went wrong and carries on operating without bothering the user with fault reports. The error is then reported automatically to the developers when the package goes online. Because Business Administrator is versionless, the developers can correct the error and re-release immediately.

Business Administrator can be a key tool in developing business strategies. It can analyse changing data and is excellent at measuring and monitoring trends. In the latest release, data integrity management has been improved too: Business Administrator now employs a growing armoury of systems to double check data and can ask questions midway through a process to ensure that data is evaluated and checked continuously. In fact, the Q&A system has thousands of questions and it poses them in a way that harvests invaluable input from users without making them feel threatened about their admin skills.

Chris Power, director of Chalestra, says: “Business Administrator is a logical software product. In most cases, SMEs find themselves using several pieces of software that don’t work together – for example, a CRM package where they enter their customers' details, a separate accounts package where they must rekey the same details and a sales package where, you’ve guessed it, they record it all a third time. Some pieces of enterprise software can handle all the admin functions simultaneously - but at a price that SMEs can’t afford. We’re filling a gap in the market by offering a comprehensive all-in-one package at a low cost.”

He adds: “Business Administrator provides considerable return on investment for users. And if any part of the user experience was in doubt before, the upgrade has ensured that it isn’t in doubt now!”

Business Administrator costs just £200 GBP a year per user licence and can be obtained from http://www.business-administrator.com.
