Our company has been under the same ownership for 25 years. While other vendors have come and gone, we have thrived because we embrace the technology employed by Fortune 1000 companies and others such as Disney, Intuit, Sage, and WebMD. While that decision was more costly, it has guaranteed our customers against obsolescence for the long term.
As our competitors chose the path of less expensive “rapid” development tools, that decision ultimately led to the “rapid” obsolescence of their products. Agencies everywhere are still left on platforms unable to keep up with important changes in technology, and could be forced into an unwanted conversion to another system.
A system must be built on technology employed by the largest of corporations. Those companies will always be aligned with the latest technology and you should be right there with them.
