Custom made software can make a huge difference to a small business, but sometimes an ‘off the shelf’ option will do the job just as well at a fraction of the price. Sometimes they don’t need either. Knowing which way to go can be difficult.
Making the decision to invest money in technology can be a difficult one as people worry they’re wasting their money or they might not be getting the best solution to their problem.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about the reasons to spend money on technology and the reasons not to, as well as getting some useful information on ‘off the shelf’ software that many small businesses don’t know about.
During the session, you’ll take part in thought exercises about successful IT projects, failed projects and the biggest wastes of money on technology among others. They’ll be plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout and after.
You’ll leave with the confidence to make good decisions on whether to invest in new technology or not and if an ‘off the shelf’ or custom built option would be more appropriate for your business.
