JEDCO to offer a software tools seminar to help grow your business

On a day-to-day basis, you probably encounter a vast array of software tools that claim to help grow your business, to make your job easier, and to help your company reach the next level of success. But which ones actually work? It can be difficult to weed out the best tools from the ones that don’t really do much. That’s why the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) will host a seminar to teach you about technology tools that get the job done.

As part of the Grow with JEDCO series, the economic development commission partnered with Simmons & White to host Software Tools Available to Help Your Business Grow: Finding the Right Tools and Leveraging your Existing Ones.” This educational seminar will provide small and medium-size businesses with information about software tools that can help a business excel and maintain a competitive advantage. Jay Jayakrishnan, a partner with Simmons & White, will present on behalf of Susco Solutions to cover the following topics:

  • The limitations of tracking data in Excel
  • Identifying software tools that can help businesses grow
  • How to avoid picking the wrong tools
  • Finding software tools that match your company’s processes
  • How to integrate your use of existing tools with potential new ones
  • Building your own solutions and customizing existing ones
  • Crucial information a business needs to help them improve on their internal software strategy
