Its like a person who has never used a vacuum cleaner in his/her entire life, but he invents one...they put the chord, where it always gets wrapped around the handle, and the on/off button way down at the bottom of the vacuum. If you've never used something, how in the world could you invent it to be efficient and user friendly????? He doesn't have a clue as to what the end users need.

This is the problem, arrogance, and not talking to the employees who use these systems.

They are not saving money....and in the end, it's taking their employees much longer to do the same procedure, and much longer. Doesn't make sense.

Corporations have lost the mindset, to discuss these software challenges with the end users.

Don't forget that most of these types of choices are not based on evidence.

this is actually based on usage...and years of experience...say 23 years....

as I said, I'm geared and ready for new programs, but unless people realize, that need to consult with the end users, how in the world can it be made "more" efficient, than the last.

I tell you true, our managers have been so frustrated, b/c every single program they've been rolling out, has been worse than the last....

It is a real shame...when people once again realize, that the TEAM involves everyone, they might make some very effective and user friendly programs....

We had an in-house computer program, in which once a month, (and this was 20 years ago) we would all meet, and bring to the table all the annoying glitches...and problems, and they would work on them and get it up and running.

Today, not nearly the same, and then you have to content with a language barrier when you tray and talk to the IT people overseas....It's not working and a huge waste of money and time.

Huge!!!

Sometimes, you've got to spend money to make money.....
