You have a tried and tested process – but legislation changes, or office policy changes, or you just want to see if things could be done better. To do this you need a new step in your system. How quickly can you get it implemented, indeed, can you get it implemented without having to resort to an external system.
I often see companies that have had such a change and as a result they have multiple systems – some that do part A, C and D but, part B – the system could not do, so they do it in Excel – that wonderful catch all.
Except…. to get part B to work, data has to come out of the main system (cue endless checks and cross checks) then it has to go back in for parts C and D (more checks).
After a few years the system is no longer a system. It is a nightmarish collection of applications and Excel spreadsheets and usually there is one person (only one) who knows how it all works.
The right kind of custom solution could make the nightmares stop. Find a system developer to help.

There is certainly a great deal to find out about this
topic. I really like all the points you’ve made.
Thank you Will!
Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot
about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you simply can do with some percent to drive the
message home a little bit, however instead of that, this
is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
Many thanks for such an amazing blog. Where else could anyone have
that kind of info written in such an ideal way?
I have a presentation that I am currently focusing
on, and I happen to be on the lookout for such
information.Many thanks for blogging and i like your articles.
