Pimp my software … said no-one, ever
While accessorising your favourite outfit with great shoes or some fancy jewellery may actually improve the overall look, doing the same to your business software is actually more akin to putting lipstick on a pig.
Many systems start as single piece of software and, as a company grows or acquires other businesses, the original system becomes something it was never intended to be.
Things are added, customised and manipulated. Other pieces of software are integrated and soon enough there’s a very interesting creature that’s unique if nothing else. It does some things very well, some things partially and a few other things haphazardly.
Often there are only one or two people in the business that know its idiosyncrasies and a few more that know bits and pieces about it.
On the upside, it probably paid for itself years ago. But is it really of any value?
More than likely it inhibits efficient workflows, duplicates processes and delivers inaccurate or incomplete reports.
If you are running a “pimped up” system you are using multiple systems to manage accounting, enterprise resource planning (ERP), payroll, marketing, customer management (CRM) and ecommerce, I implore you to consider a robust cloud-based business platform such as NetSuite.
