The software pain problem

Software Pains

In spite of the time and money spent, most new cloud or on-premise software purchases suffer from these pains:

Wayferry advantages

  • Unbiased. We specialize exclusively in software selection. Others recommend software that they sell.
  • Data-Driven. Our objective evaluations are based on your needs. Others offer subjective opinions.
  • User buy-in. We nurture user buy-in from day one. Others leave this to implementation when it is too late.
  • Audited RFPs. We ensure vendors are realistic with the claims for their software. Others skip this step.

Why is purchasing enterprise software so difficult?

Why is purchasing software so difficult?

  • Immature software selection process. Overconfidence. Underestimating work. Inadequate requirements.
  • IT lacks real world business experience. Vendors over promise, under deliver. Functional fit not verified.
  • Project scope not actively managed. User buy-in not created & nurtured. Expectations not actively managed.
