The Value of Online Software Demos

Software DemoPerhaps you are aware, but perhaps not. We offer free software demos. And now that you know, you should also know why.

At some point in any company, software to help the business run faster, better and more efficiently will have to be evaluated. Small companies who run on spreadsheets don’t get to be big companies by staying on spreadsheets, meaning everybody needs software! With that in mind, it is important to understand how software demos are typically handled and why we are different.

The most common way to evaluate software is by installing an evaluation version of the software and attempting to use it in real life in your own business environment. The problem with this method is that it doesn’t produce the best results for you, or the software company, for that matter.

This method creates problems when evaluating companies like yourself have to install the software and then run into issues off the bat between the new software and existing systems. These problems require the evaluator to halt the process to contact tech support before they’ve even seen how the software works.

Not only will the company feel annoyed at the delay, but it becomes a productivity delay, creating downtime in an already drawn-out process of trying to buy software.

The typical length of time required to make a purchasing decision about software from the evaluation process to the final decision is eight to 20 or more weeks, depending on the type of software needed and the number of people involved. Companies now often have everyone from the CEO to the IT tech to the secretary involved in the buying process – making the number of people involved in a software buying decision anywhere from 3 to more than 25 on any given sale.

If the process is this difficult to start with, why make it harder by giving you a program to work through on your own from start to finish?

We feel the best way to visualize how our software could fit with your company’s goals and needs, is by going through a live online software demo at a time convenient for you. Our free software demos take anywhere from 30 minutes to more than an hour. It all depends on what you need for your business and how many questions you’d like to discuss.
