development covers a wide range of business applications. Small
businesses need to keep track of information for clients, appointments
and referrals; such applications are business management solutions.
Business management solutions include contact management systems (CMS)
and customer relationship management (CRM). These types of software can
increase productivity and reduce long term cost for small businesses.
Small businesses can integrate into a pre-build contact management and
customer relation management systems like Salesforce (www.salesforce.com) or have a custom built one from a professional software development team at Fouts Ventures (www.foutsventures.com).
Salesforce charges businesses per user per contract. Contracts are

relationship management or content management system you choose or have
created, keep it simple. The more complex the less users want to use it,
the more it cost and the more it utilizes your precious time. Life is
short, keep it simple.
