When trying to get a business going, the most important thing to get right is a database management and CRM (customer relationship management) tool. The majority of teething problems occur in startups due to the wrong systems being in place. For established corporations, it is arguably even more important that the right systems be in place. If there are too many bottle necks, the house of cards will fall.
