What do I need to consider when choosing business management software other than price?2018-08-06T14:32:18+00:00

As a retailer, you thoroughly understand that you get what you pay for. The same principle holds true when it comes to purchasing a software system for your retail business. While the least expensive system may seem to be a good choice financially, oftentimes, hidden costs such as additional features, technical support, supplemental services, installation, and overall inefficiency can significantly increase your total cost of ownership. A fully integrated system, including all accounting functions, will save time and money for years to come. TylerNet’s personalized on-site training will ensure that you utilize our system to its fullest. While price should not be ignored in your selection process, it should not be the most important factor either.
