Solving the Problem with Software
Software systems are considered an important aspect of many businesses however there are many successful businesses with minimal reliance on software. When businesses are invited to consider introducing a software system into their operations or even extending an existing software system, the idea can quite often be met with hesitation and apprehension.
This reaction is quite often due to the difficulty in measuring the benefit of the investment and feeling comfort with existing processes that have helped shape a successful business.
Why invest in purchasing or creating software when a business' team members can achieve the same outcome?
When considering whether to introduce new software into your business, it is important to resist focusing on trying to replicate existing processes. This approach can often result in an implementation with minimal success. It might be seen as an attempt to make team members a redundant part of the business or the implementation may not cover all use cases effectively. In the latter case, use of the software will be reduced because critical tasks cannot be completed efficiently.
In order to avoid these common pitfalls, it is important to step back and identify existing problems in the business. These problems may vary in complexity but solving them will have a positive effect on the business.
Examples of problems might be:
Identifying problems can sometimes be difficult but once achieved, it becomes easier to quantify the benefit of developing a software solution. It might be a monetary benefit but it might also be a more emotional benefit like increased morale.
