This might include picking whichever vendor seems the friendliest, using whatever your competitors are using, or choosing based on preferences of friends. This willy-nilly decision-making style is fast and easy, but it doesn’t ensure that the software functionality matches the needs of your business. It’s basically gambling – it might work out, or it might be a total waste of money that results in your business going back to the same outdated spreadsheets everyone used with the old system.
