Ops Tip of the Week
When acquiring new software, many businesses attempt to retool it to make it look or work like their current systems. There may be some uniqueness about your business that requires modification, but the key is to select software that has a high percentage of fit to your business. Also be open to changing business practices to fit the new software. The key is to minimize risk, reduce costs and reduce the time needed to implement the new application. To find out more, plan now to attend the upcoming two-day interactive workshop, Evaluating, Selecting and Implementing Direct Commerce Systems, June 17-18 in Richmond, Va., co-presented by Catalog Success and F. Curtis Barry & Co. For registration and other information, go to www.fcbco.com/seminar .
