Internets and online systems are an obvious answer but not always the easiest to transition to, and often require additional staff just to manage this

Ready-made systems

  1. Usually inflexible and are not an exact fit
  2. Tail wagging the dog: You have to change to fit the system
  3. Not always user friendly, often cumbersome
  4. Staff have to be trained to use
  5. New staff cannot be work ready on day one
  6. Implementation is usually 5 times the cost of the system

In-House Systems

  1. Requires an architect and a tech team
  2. Costly to setup and maintain
  3. Every organisation has to reinvent the wheel for themselves
  4. Slow turnaround times, difficult to make changes
  5. Significant key-man risk
