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.

So, if you are a small business owner looking for the cheapest solution on the market, please be weary. Going cheap and the risks of doing so would easily out weigh the cost saving.

More importantly, we believe we have a far superior product offering – look at the whole offering and not just the charge on your credit card.

This is what one of our very real customers had to say about support:

…add to this a friendly and responsive support team and you have a solution you can trust.

Still Using Spreadsheets? Here’s Why It’s Time to Graduate to a CRM

One of the most mind-blowing conversations I’ve ever had was with a potential client whose support team used spreadsheets to track everything.
