There comes a time when your organization needs to adopt new tools, technologies to smooth the way for your business growth. So you start sorting through different products’ offerings and you end up purchasing a new system which you expect to be a fix-all.
We often get to hear from our dealers about clients/companies who adopted a new software solution to find out that it is not exactly something they have been looking for. So they either have to live with their choice or try to forget the fiasco and start searching for the funds and other options.
Choosing the right business software is indeed a trying time for a company. Will it turn out one big frustration or, after all, salvation? Let’s go over the most important points to consider when picking business software.
A couple of more tips: take your time to go over the Q&A on the vendor’s website and also check for specials – most vendors have sales at least twice a year (at HandiFox, it is July and December).
Real user reviews, case studies, and grids – they are all available on multiple business software review platforms like capterra.com, softwareadvice.com, g2crowd.com and others. As a third-party they do make sure those posts are generated by real users and are 100% trustworthy. Why not get in touch with one of the reviewers and hear their firsthand opinion? Some of our clients have already taken advantage of this opportunity.
Don’t hesitate to request a free trial and fully utilize every single area of the software. This is the best you can do to make sure you are comfortable with the software and its vendor. At HandiFox we offer a free 30-day trial.
The transition period and crunch times shouldn’t overlap –don’t make it harder for you. Plan the strategy and timeline for the transition really well.
This choice might take long in making but it is more likely to pan out this way. Choose wisely!
