A lot of business admin is repetitive, which means wasted hours entering and processing data with a likelihood of entry errors. Bespoke tools such as desktop programs or spreadsheets can be programmed to automate these processes and reduce errors. Other software, such as Postcode lookups, can be integrated to improve your service to customers. Spreadsheets with cross-referencing can simplify accounts data, analyse client record databases and aid event planning, for example.
The same principles apply to technical analysis as well as admin tasks. The example shown is a stand-alone Windows program that calculates fixing specifications for roof tiles based on building dimensions and geographic location. The provisions of the British Standard BS5534 are built-in and two third-party programs (AFD Postcode Plus and BREVe3) are integrated. The program saves considerable time for the technical teams that use it, as well as providing a more detailed and appropriate specification.
