Print Software Execution is the Differentiator

I wish you could just buy the right print software product and it would make you successful. You can’t. Success with software takes your execution. Software doesn’t implement itself, vendors can’t implement it without your active involvement.

Every company that is planning a software purchase, of any kind, should read this article. Jennifer's observations in this article, in my view, are the most relevant equation in the success of software installs. Thanks Jennifer!

Toughest lesson for any company: Stop blaming the software and look at yourselves and the organisation itself to find the causes of ERP project disappointment.

One other lesson: ERP, process automation, customer self-service, these are all hard things to do and take resources, dedication and persistence to achieve success.
