When it comes to considering a new data collection or data management tool, the options are endless and the potential for negative outcomes is great.
Whether you’re looking to move from pen and paper data collection and manual data entry of the data that’s collected, or to find a solution more suited to your current business needs, it’s a lot to consider.
Unfortunately, because many mobile data solution systems are “one-size-fits-all,” designed for specific use cases, making a change often requires sacrificing a goal or two and settling for something that “works,” but, perhaps not as satisfactorily as you hoped when you started the process.
It Doesn’t Have to Go Like This
In fact – by starting with the right solution in the first place, you can eliminate the need to sacrifice the end result you’re looking for altogether.
But, how do you know? Where do you start?
This part? It doesn’t have to be a complex challenge. By working with a team that’s agile and focused on relationships – and getting to know your specific business needs – from the start, you can ensure a better implementation and end result.
The Zerion Difference
Our team has been building relationships and learning about specific customer use cases and needs from the start, over a decade ago. Throughout this process, we’ve learned something critical: while certain things are absolutely critical – technology, integration potential, and specific capabilities – what matters most is flexibility.
By getting to know our customers from day 1, we are able to use the technology framework of our solutions to create customized end solutions (all in a full-service model that eliminates traditional service packages) that provide limitless potential and scalability, allowing customers to grow with us and rely on us for the long term.
All this stems from the belief in the power of relationships partnered with a never-ending quest to improve solutions and adopt the latest technology.
How Can You Tell?
So… relationships are critical. But, how do you know whether a technology partner is able to go the distance.
This is also simple: look for proof from the very start.
From the time a customer begins a free trial, forward, we get a conversation started. Our team works to learn about needs, to create demo forms based on actual existing forms (when possible), and to present similar use cases. Putting the time in upfront provides assurance that the Zerion suite of mobile data solutions can satisfy the specific needs of each and every customer.
If a provider works only with standard demos, and waits to provide proof of concept, you may end up in the situation we discussed at the start of this article: less than satisfied with the end result and – possibly – looking for a new solution sooner than you’d hope for.
Today’s the day to try something different. Start a conversation using the chat box on our site, or, by emailing sales (at) zerionsoftware.com. Someone from our team would be happy to get a conversation started and to provide evidence of what your final solution could look like – even if you aren’t quite sure what that means yet.
We look forward to learning more about your specific data collection and reporting needs. Here’s to a better way!
