When your business needs a software solution before it can move forward, you’ll find yourself inundated with options. There will be companies out there clamoring for your business even if they’re not 100% the right fit for you. Your job isn’t to find the cheapest solution—it’s to find the best solution. And in order to do that, you’ll need to know what to look for. Here are top considerations and tips for choosing the right software solution provider from the outset:
- Hidden fees. There are few things worse in the business world than signing a long-term contract and finding out about all sorts of hidden expenses you never knew were there. Not only does it harm your long-term prospects for growth, but it’s a sign that you can’t even trust your software solution provider. Make sure you thoroughly review the contracts before signing them. It can be a bit tedious, but your bottom line will thank you.
- Pay by milestone. At the very least, you should think about agreeing to milestones and KIP before committing to a long-term contract. This prevents you from spending too much on a software solution that offers way more scalability than you’ll ever need. And when new milestones are reached, you can always re-evaluate the software’s performance and see if you want to make any changes.
