How Small Businesses Use and Lose Time [INFOGRAPHIC]

For small businesses, time is money. Even for expert multitaskers, there never seems to be enough time in the day for small business owners to accomplish everything on their to do lists. In fact, saving time in the back office is the top pain point we hear from small businesses, which is why we focus each new release of QuickBooks on shaving off valuable minutes and even hours in the workday (see what’s new in QuickBooks 2012 here). In this infographic, we look at how small businesses use their time and how they save it, by boosting productivity. Click the infographic for a larger view.

I would say, ultimately it all ends up with time management. If an SMB is not effective in time management there is no scope of growth. All time hot topics - Time management tips, time consumers in office, etc. explains how important it is to manage time. I am sure Quickbook is a necessary tool for any SMB for accounting and expense management and Quickbooks integrated with Replicon - http://www.replicon.com/quickbooks-integration-web-timesheet helps you with effective time management too.
