With so much on the line, it is crucial that organizations spend a significant amount of time determining how much they should spend on the correct software for their organizational needs. There are many things to consider before making a decision, including: such as scalability, budget, whether you’re buying more software than you need, how the new workforce management software solution will be implemented, etc. Dan Buckhout, a seasoned business management professional and strategic leader at 70kft, spoke on the mistakes organizations make when purchasing Workforce Management software. “The decision about which solution is the best for your workforce is a matter of value, not cost.
