There is a difference between free, discounted, and expensive software. As a business owner you want to try and cut corners to save money. So essentially you may go with software that is free. You may not have the funds you need to get the software you need so you end up going with a more discounted software. Or you may spend so much money on a proprietary software that ultimately in the end you purchased something that isn’t working for your business.
Before you implement software in your business environment take the time to look at all of your options. Free software may not have all of the functions you need to run your day-to-day operations. Discounted software isn’t fully scalable as you grow. And expensive software eats at your profits, but you don’t want to let it go because you have already invested so much money into it anyway.
At the end of the day whether it is free, discounted, or expensive you may end up spending more money trying to get the software to work with your business environment. You may spend more money on support, downtime, and remediation. Don’t cut corners on your business. Do the research and find the software that will work with your business environment, be able to scale as you grow, be compliant with security issues, and find software that has the proper support.
