Shopping for a new software vendor can feel a lot like shopping for a new car. At first it’s exciting. You get to explore different options, weigh the pros and cons of each decision, and set up meetings to test drive different options. You think to yourself, “This isn’t so bad. I just do some homework, sit through some demos, and pick the one I like the best, right?”
The Complicated Nature of Purchasing Team Communication Software
If only shopping for enterprise-level communication software were so simple. In reality, choosing a new software provider is more like this: talk to all your stakeholders and nail down the specifics of what your team needs. Then, two weeks into the process, you get a call from Gary over in R&D who doesn’t understand why nobody asked him for his opinion. Will Gary ever use this software? No. Does Gary need to be involved? Apparently yes.
After you begrudgingly loop in Gary so he doesn’t feel left out, you get cc’d on an email that says the budget for your new software has been cut by 15%. OK, you can live with that. Except then Rob (probably a friend of Gary’s) gets wind of the endeavor and now he wants new communication software for his team too. And he also wants to sit in on every demo call even though he’s about to go on vacation for two weeks. Thanks a lot Gary.
Shopping for company software is a lot like shopping for a car. If the car was going to be driven by 20 different people who want a Rolls Royce on a Honda Civic budget.
