Business Sense: The Perfect Way to Use Software in a Countertop Shop

By Katherine Gifford of Moraware

Okay, I’m sorry for the clickbait title. That was rude of me because the answer is – there isn’t one perfect way to use software in any business. For over 20 years, we’ve worked alongside fabricators running businesses of all shapes and sizes. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that each one is unique. And, that the most successful of those shops understand that refining their processes to make them work for that uniqueness is the key. Let me explain…

Shop A does mostly commercial work and has a larger team. Shop B is a small team that does mostly custom work. Their processes should not be the same, right? With that in mind, the solutions they are looking for in software are also not the same.

It seems dreamy to have one software solution that can manage everything, but we’re here to suggest that creating a customized software stack is typically the most effective way to streamline your shop’s processes and ensure future growth. In this article, I’ll attempt to give you a good understanding of software, software stacking, and what to look for as you invest in technology.
