What is the Best Systems Improvement You Made in 2012?

In Discussion by Edward Nawotka

By Edward Nawotka, Editor-in-chief

In today’s feature story Andy Richardson of Influential Software argues that you need to invest more attention, time and money in your digital and information systems if you hope to guarantee long-term success for your publishing business.

He notes, “In fact, the commitment to workable systems is a prudent means of securing initial financial investment in the first place.”

While Richardson is specifically talking of start-ups, the advice is equally relevant to established publishing companies.

These digital days, back-office systems are the backbone of any company.

So tell us, looking back on 2012, what’s the best systems improvement you made this year? How did it change or augment your existing systems? And would you recommend it to others?

Let us know what you think in the comments.
