The New Year Rush

Alas, 2018 has finally come to an end and we all want to start the New Year strong, but there is a stampede coming our way.  It feels similar to my travels to Nepal, a beautiful country; home to the Himalayas, tigers, Buddhism, and the Indian elephant.  While my family and I were in Nepal, we took a safari tour of the jungles in the Bardia National Park.  Within the park, we camped out on a river and each morning and evening we went out on a drive in search for some of Nepal’s most exotic animals.  We were lucky enough to see a herd of 22 Indian elephants on the second day of our safari.   Now, most people may think elephants are harmless creatures and will not attack a human because our size ratio shows no threat to the elephant, but they are actually very territorial.  So, our driver tried to maintain a safe distance, especially from the bull (male elephant).  But unfortunately, we pushed our luck and got a little too close to the elephants and the bull did in fact charge at our vehicle.  It is quite a terrifying sight to see  a  full sized bull that weighs around 10,000 pounds charging 30 mph directly at you!

As the New Year wraps up, it is similar to getting too close to a full sized bull Indian elephant; it charges at you, and it comes  very fast  and with a lot of work.  No matter the size of the business, there are always issues and processes that must occur in a very short time frame.  The end of the year means it is time to wrap up the books in accounting, start looking at the numbers of sales  results of the year, and time to start thinking about improvements for 2019.  This is all 10,000 pounds of pure work charging at you at 30 miles per hour and you are left standing there with nowhere to turn.

Luckily, TRI Solutions has the tools you need to succeed this New Year and each year moving forward.  TRI Solutions will provide your company technology resources and a strong Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that will benefit your business, overhaul your processes and will make every New Year a breeze for your company.  Acumatica is a cloud-based ERP system that can assist you with business finance, operations, and accounting.  This tool can save valuable employee time and can create custom dashboards to show real time data about your company.  Using an ERP system like Acumatica, you can have calculated results of the year on your custom-made dashboards, and you will be able to easily see the accounting books from a manager/CEO standpoint, and you will be able to easily pinpoint errors within your operations, finances, and accounting.  Acumatica will speed up the New Year process while making it easier at the same time, with TRI Solutions’ support every step of the way.

If your company needs additional help, TRI Solutions also offers technology resources that can help develop your business.  They can offer your business contracted, contract to hire, or direct hire personnel who can bring a different perspective to the business.  The personnel will assist in growing your business so you can take on larger work loads and improve your operations.

Like I said, it is the end of the year; you are standing within range of a wild 10,000 pound Indian Elephant charging at you at 30 mph.  Running can only get you so far until you get trampled.  Allow TRI Solutions to be the vehicle next to you that can drive 60 mph so you will always stay two steps ahead of the New Year beast.
