Top 5 things to look for in innovative technology

Are you in Technolody debt

Choosing a new ERP can be a challenging and confusing time. It may be difficult to know what to look for, who to involve, and when it’s the right time to move to a new technology. There is no right time to change to a new IT product, however having a few things to look for can make the process easier and less daunting.

  • Productivity: What can a new product do to make you and your team more productive?
  • Functionality: What features does the product have that perform the daily accounting and business management functions of your company?
  • Technology: Does the product leverage technology for mobility, usability, and customization?
  • Value: How does the product maximize features and functions versus the cost of the product?
  • Risk: How does the product minimize risk and is there a risk to changing to a new product?

Assessing these items can be a great way to start your search for innovative technology. If your company is looking to make a change to your IT, please reach out to Polaris Business Solutions at info@polaris-business.com.

Like with most things, there are good and bad with technology debt, but regardless of that, it does have an impact on your business.
