Change is hard. It’s an age-old saying. Why? Because people fear the unknown, and with change comes the risk of failure—but with it also comes the possibility of reward. Switching software systems, especially property management software, is an opportunity often met with hesitation and resistance. But in order for your business to stay competitive and successful, it’s often 100% critical to move to a different solution to survive. You’re running out of time to catch up with those who have already embraced change.
So how do you let go of your worries and make a switch?
There are simple strategies to help you navigate change successfully. Vince Coley, Director of Implementation Services at AppFolio, recently gave a webinar on the five key ingredients to a successful implementation of new software. He also discusses common mistakes he has seen firsthand during the implementation process and gives tips on how you can avoid them.
It may sound cheesy, but don’t be afraid to reach for your dreams. If your business goal is to grow your business by 50 units in 6 months without adding headcount, and your current (maybe manual?) processes won’t get you there, then don’t be afraid to move to a solution that will.
