Advice on Purchasing New Software


April 22, 2010

I want new software. What planning should I do?

First, analyze and define your needs clearly. Next, ask software vendors to demonstrate how their software product addresses those specific needs.

Once you make a software decision, make a plan depicting how the software will be used within the organization. Define new processes for each department for software use. Your software vendor can help you with this plan.

Next, get hands-on training for all of your users. The best product investment can have a diminished investment return if users are not trained on how to effectively use it.

Last, roll it out and enjoy increased opportunities, revenue and profits.
