Finding the right software for your company can be overwhelming. Most businesses think they need proprietary software built just for their business. They will go through the process of finding a software developer to build something that is specific to their needs.
Having proprietary software may not be your answer. You are subject to that one company being able to make updates to your software and support you. What if that company went out of business or the person who developed your software is no longer available? What happens to your company operations then?
In some cases proprietary software does make sense. However thoroughly plan and investigate what you truly need in a process. Do your research and find out if there is already a software that was developed that meets your needs. There are so many businesses out there that provide the same thing. So chances are there is already a software out there that can do what you need to accomplish.
Relying on proprietary software can be costly in so many ways. The cost to develop the software initially is a huge expense. The costs to support and update the software is an ongoing expense. And the costs of relying on just one person or one company that can assist you is not a viable option. You want to find software that can be supported by anyone.
If you have proprietary software now is the time to review it and see if there is something out there that is more open source or that can be supported by anyone. Or if you need think you need proprietary software now is the time to sit down with an I.T. expert and find solutions to what you are looking for. Find more cost effective ways to operate, scale, and be successful!
