What's new on bCentral?

A business plan is often a document that gets looked at once and never again. But if you review it regularly, it can help you stay on the right track and identify new opportunities. We saw how continual planning helped a production company grow.

Running a business can be hard work. You need to be an expert at everything, but time's not always on your side. We've heard this time and again from all types of companies, and that's why this month we're looking at time management and how to get the business support you need.

That's also why we've just launched Microsoft Small Business+. This gives you web-based software and business training, plus support information to help you solve common issues with Microsoft products. We've also got people waiting to answer questions online, in real-time. Why not try it now?
