How is Software a constraint in business?
For some software you need licences to run it, which can limit the number of people who can use the software at one time. It might also not be possible to buy just one more licence; the packages offered by the software company may be for 1-5 users and then 6-10, so if you need to go from 5 users to 6 you then have to pay for 10. So that can also be a financial limitation if the company can't afford it.

It might be contributing to time limitations if the software is running slowly, or if it takes certain time to do things.

You've also got the problems of employees not knowing how to use the software. Can you go to Excel and produce a formula that colours all cells with a number "6" in pink? Probably not, but Excel can do it. This is a knowledge constraint. Similarly, the software might not be able to do something that the business needs - you can't really write an essay in Excel, so the business would need 2 pieces of software.
