The time and effort you will put into the system is more significant than the cost of the system itself.
Consider the following when purchasing the system:

  1. The time it will take to initially learn and set up the system
  2. The time you will spend reading and understanding all the documentation
  3. The time and effort it will take to implement and get the system running
  4. The ongoing monitoring and management to ensure compliance with the system
  5. The maintenance and upkeep required for the system

Keep in mind that, on average, implementing a system can cost five to ten times more than the cost of the software or system itself.
