Cowboys. They’re everywhere. At least that’s how it seems sometimes. Especially when you’re running your business and seem to come up against lower priced, less experienced, inferior quality tradesmen.
Problem is, the same is true for almost every other industry and the cloud technology sector is no exception.
It can be a huge decision to get ‘up in the cloud’ or change job management software. While it can take some time and money to do so, it can also be a massive investment in the future growth and sustainability of your trade or contracting business.
When it comes to getting cloud based software and systems set up in your business there are good advisers… and then there are, well, some others.
We have heard heaps of horror stories when it comes to technology and tradies so make sure to do your homework first. We always suggest to get at least 2 proposals.
To help you make the right decisions we have developed these ten questions you should ask any new technology provider or cloud integrator partners before proceeding.
