The Term Store Management Tool is a beneficial feature that can help you manage Terms Sets that are used in the Managed Metadata Service in SharePoint 2013. In this article, we’ll walk you through several commonly used actions including setting the administrator and adding a new Term Set group.

First, go to Site Settings. Under Site Administration, select Term Store Management:
This will take you to the Term Store Management Tool main page as pictured below:

Next, right-click the new group you created and select New Term Set to add a new Term Set, or select Import Term Set to import a Term Setlist. You will need to convert your file to a .csv file before importing.

Thanks, that was helpful.
Also, I like much of the Bamboo products but they are quite expensive for a small business setup with only two people using it.
You may want to consider implementing a small licensing process.
