What to consider when choosing a new software platform


Business Objectives

It is crucial to have a clear understanding of your business goals and objectives, as well as how the new platform will support them. This will help you identify which features and functionalities are essential for your platform.



The platform you select should be able to scale with your business as it grows. Consider factors such as the platform's performance, data storage, and bandwidth capabilities to ensure it can accommodate your business's growth over time



The new platform should be able to integrate with your existing systems, tools, and applications. Consider the platform's compatibility with other software and its ability to support the necessary integrations.


User Experience

The platform should be easy to use and intuitive for both internal and external users. Consider factors such as the platform's user interface, accessibility, and mobile responsiveness.



The platform should have robust security features to protect your business and customer data from cyber threats. Consider the platform's security protocols, compliance certifications, and data privacy policies to ensure your business is protected.
