I had to update this post a little bit, see below for the details, but the killer feature had to go
I’ve just got a call for help from a partner, about their customer who has decided to move from basic inventory management to full-scale warehouse management system. The question was how to post the opening balances for existing inventory quantities in flat locations to warehouse-managed ones.
I thought this might deserve a quick blog post, you can never know when someone else would want to do the same thing.
This post has no category. It may be irrelevant to you; it won’t provide any value to you or your business.
But to me, personally, it’s the most relevant so far.
A few days back, while prototyping a new solution for a customer, one of the key users said: “But in our old software it didn’t work like that.” I was about to try to explain why the change, but then the user’s boss said:
- We aren’t implementing a new solution so that everything can stay the way it was.
How often does it happen to you that your customers say to you a similar thing: “But in our old system…”? What do you say to them? How do you approach change when your consultant proposes a new way of doing things, or a new approach to a common problem?
