With a typical IWMS, implementations can take months, if not years. And all of this before you can determine if the product is really worth the investment.
Are you “certified”?
How well can you use your IWMS? If you need to attend software school to be able to use your software effectively, it is likely too complex. How many of its pricey features are you really using? Even with a degree from IWMS-U, most end up only using a small subset of features.
IWMS licensing and implementation costs run high. Even subscription based systems are typically accompanied by large upfront costs and long term commitments. So by the time you are in a position to assess the return on your investment, it’s already too late.
