Investing in Information Technology
When considering investing in information technology to help support your business, the choices can be overwhelming. A search on Google for Trucking Company Software yields over 5 million results. These trucking software solutions range from complex enterprise Transportation Management Systems to a wide variety of specialty solutions for business analysis, logging, finance, brokerage, dispatch, load tracking and whole host of others. So how do you know where to invest? What should our priorities be? What’s going to give you the best return for your investment?

Every system, every application, has, by definition, an assumed business process embedded within it. It assumes that event A will be followed by event B, C, D and so forth. Rarely if ever will that assumed process be exactly like the way you have operated in the past. Unfortunately, people are creatures of habit and are resistant to change. Without adequate training they will fall back into the old way of doing things which can negate the usefulness of your investment.
Advocates for a particular solution may say that “you can change the basic assumptions of the application to meet your specific operational processes.” Be skeptical. The IT landscape is filled with failed projects, delays and cost overruns resulting from attempts to change basic application assumptions.
