Researching & Selecting Business Software
posted on January 26, 2010
Web 2.0 – Marketing 2.0 – Sales 2.0 – Social Media craze – our first black President – women succeeding in business leadership roles that used to be “glass ceilings” – and so on. We clearly live in a progressive generation. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell journalist who write predictable, annual reviews on how to buy software.
I read last week another article by a journalist claiming to understand the best way to find accounting software. Actually, the content was regurgitation of software buying tips we’ve all seen many times over the years. Here are the article’s main points:
Understand Your Accounting Needs
Talk to your accountant and staff
Know your budget limitations
Reach out to other businesses and software consultants
Create your wish list
Make your business accounting software decision
Look, not searching, but re-searching business software is a major task. Reference my blog – http://blog.solutionexplorers.com/?p=67 .
This article mentioned numerous times “the next step you need to take is…” Question: Do YOU internally have the time or knowledge resources to take on yet another time-consuming task? Some businesses do, possibly a nonprofit with volunteer assistance, but most folks I talk with are struggling to find work-life balance. Are you really willing to invite numerous sales calls, marketing packets, and demos into your already busy work life?
