No matter the business you have it is always important to keep track of all your orders, customers, shipments, revenue, etc. Having a place to store important information like those listed above can be the difference in a business that becomes successful and business that closes within the first few months.
Depending on how big your company is or how much data you need to store, you can use data systems like ERP or data warehouses to store and categorize your data for easy retrieval. If you are a smaller business, you might find that basic excel sheets can do the trick, and creating flat files can be your answers!
Whichever you choose just to make sure you are gathering the most important information for your specific business, that is very important.
