I recently started the second phase of my life. I had been in the staffing industry for half of it; all at the same company.
Temporary, temp to hire, direct hire. Taking the order, filling the order, interviewing, testing, training, on boarding and payroll. Moving a temp from one assignment to another; tracking what requirements are necessary for all clients, making sure all temps were current, who needed to update something….

No one ever buys anything with the intent of using a small percentage of the product. Generally, when one makes a major purchase there is a good amount of research involved and desired features are scrutinized for efficiency and effectiveness. There may be yes/no checklists involved, various conversations with the vendor and many product demonstrations. People do this because they are planning on using the features that they will be paying for. Why is it then that most companies only use 40% of the features their software contains?
