If you have run a business or are growing a business, you will soon realize that money is seldom a bottleneck. The real unexpected bottleneck will be time – yet the only true way to grow a business is to automate, hire employees or outsource for all activities which does not make you money directly. Then you can focus solely on what gets you paid, and this in turn will get you the highest return on investment.
If you are working at a shipping company, accounting firm or a legal company in Singapore, chances are, you would need to deliver lots of documents on a daily basis between different office locations in Singapore or to your clients / banks. This is the reason why many of such companies usually get dispatch riders or simply outsource their courier needs to a courier company like www.pcamasters.com in Singapore. One of the biggest issues with businesses which find it hard to grow is that they’re not focusing on what gets them paid – sales. They’re focused on performing everything themselves, not automating using software, and not outsourcing activities such as deliveries. This is the problem when the Asian mindset of ‘save at all costs’ permeates a company. For a company to grow big and get to the Fortune 500 level, the executives in the company needs to only be focused on making money, and outsource everything else so that they have the highest return on time invested. Asking your employees to courier items would be a great waste of their time and your company’s money because the employees could otherwise have used that same time to make more money for the company (e.g. sales or fulfillment of orders!)!
It’s extremely important to realize that time is the most important resource. By outsourcing items such as deliveries, which can take up quite a bit of time considering how congested Singapore’s roads are during peak hours and in the town areas, you will be better equipped to reach your new business heights.
