Would you rather listen instead? Click here for a the 9-minute audio recordingWhen was the last time you did a review of all of your business tools to determine if they are still the right fit for your company? Have you ever been on auto-renew, and when that $400 receipt came through, you cringed because you weren't even using that product, and you just paid for it for another year? It's time to do a systems tool audit. I recommend having a business tool audit yearly to determine if it's still the right product at the right price. At Rader Co., it's an annual task with all support staff involved. We have a task in ClickUp with the complete list and its subscription cost so that people know the expense incurred. I'm transparent about fees because team members need to know that it costs one masterclass to pay for the Podia platform every year. I can't add everyone to our Google platform with an email address because it's $12 per month. If they don't use it, it's a waste of $60 a year, which adds up. I regularly did this before and added questions based on the Run Like Clockwork course.
