Make Smart Software Choices (and not cheap choices)

I was just reading a blog post over at Internet Redux. Titled Basecamp not for you? Check out Wrike, the author extols the virtues of a project management software because of its price, $3.99 per user per month. For $12/month,this author can get his 3 employees all using the same project management tool.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of trusting the very guts of my business to an operator who wants to charge $3.99 a month scares me. I’ve worked hard at running the numbers on WORK[etc]. With our program of constant development, redundant hosting infrastructure and A1 support, we would be bankrupted pretty quickly.
