Custom Software: One of the Biggest Needs After an Acquisition or Merger

Custom Software: One of the Biggest Needs After an Acquisition or Merger
One of the major challenges that comes along when any business acquires or merges with another company is, ironically, change. After all - mergers and acquisitions are designed to bring about an intense period of change by their very nature, but it is this same concept that often causes an incredible amount of stress and energy at this most fragile of times.

Merging two distinct companies means merging two distinct cultures, trying to preserve the best of each and combine them into something more powerful and focused than either one of them could be on its own. When you're dealing with the many individual personalities involved, this can often be seen as a more difficult hurdle to overcome than bringing about change to systems and procedures along the way.

Off-the-shelf software is usually implemented as something of a "stop-gap" solution to the multiple, duplicate systems that are suddenly present in the immediate aftermath of a merger or acquisition. But this is rarely the right solution for the right time.

Off-the-Shelf Software is Limiting Your Company’s Productivity

Off-the-Shelf Software is Limiting Your Company’s Productivity
Whenever company leaders look for new opportunities to increase employee productivity, they typically turn to software as a way to accomplish precisely that. "Our old systems aren't keeping up with our modern day demands," they tell themselves. "Obviously, a new piece of technology is the silver bullet we've been looking for. Sadly, this isn't necessarily the case. In certain situations, software can inject a significant boost of productivity into a business - both at the larger, organizational level and on an employee by employee basis. But what a lot of people fail to realize is it isn't ANY software that will get the job done. Only the right software can positively impact productivity in the way that you need. The wrong software, on the other hand, tends to have the exact opposite effect at the worst possible moment.

Should You Use Off-the-Shelf Software to Manage Customer Relationships?

Should You Use Off-the-Shelf Software to Manage Customer Relationships?

You may think that the ultimate success of your company will live and die based on the quality of the products and services you offer... but from a certain perspective, you'd actually be wrong. Because as important as these things are, they also change all the time. They're in a constant state of flux. You're always releasing something bigger, faster, better - making upgrades and improvements along the way. The true foundation of your organization - the thing that gives you your edge and that guarantees you'll still be around in a decade - rests on a different kind of quality. The quality of the essential relationships that you're forming with your customers every single day. So why, then, would you choose to manage something so important with a piece of off-the-shelf software?

Shortcuts Don't Save You Money in Business

Shortcuts Don't Save You Money in Business
Many businesses are tempted to take shortcuts in order to save money. They believe that if they can pay less for certain products or services, they can boost their profits by reducing overall expenses. However, this doesn't always work. In fact, in many cases, the business settles for less than what it really needs. For example, the business may complete only part of a project instead of finishing the whole thing. Businesses may also invest in a lower quality product or service that ends up costing them money in the end. Although taking a shortcut may seem like a good idea, it is rarely beneficial to your business in the long run.
