Seth Godin’s words are always worth repeating, but perhaps never more so than his recent blog post about shortcuts.
How does this relate to the world of Purchase Order Software and e-procurement?
Far too many software vendors push the message “easy, easy, easy” during the sales process.
And as a result, far too many nice people become frustrated and disappointed when they get around to actually implementing their new Purchasing systems, only to find out that there’s actually a little work involved (sorry folks, this isn’t a word processor that you can just install and start using).
Seth’s closing remarks are worth repeating here: “It will take you less time and less effort to do it the (right) way than it will to buy and try and discard all the shortcuts“. Well said, Seth.
But the good news is, as you work to get your free Purchase Order Software up and running, there’s lots to look forward to.
Measure twice. Cut once.
TIP: If you’re ready to start implementing the free version of SpendMap, please see “Time to Implement” in the Getting Started Documentation that came with your free software.
