Enterprise Business Software For Today’s Innovators

As I sat and watched the State of the Union address by President Obama, I began to realize that amidst all the fear and anxiety that has been created out of the economic status of the America and the world – we really are in a great place. We are ripe for change because clearly the old way of doing things does not work for today’s world. As President Obama stated, we are not living in the same world anymore where you graduate college or even high school, get a job and likely keep that job until you retire.

MangoApps Offers Users Budget Conscious Software

A recent article on VentureBeat highlighted an emerging challenge that companies in the Enterprise collaboration software space commonly encounter as new innovations are brought to market: how do we get customers to use actually use them?

If enterprise business software vendors are truly concerned with how their solutions will improve productivity, they need to take a long look at the pricing models for their solutions. Are they adding value release after release AND keeping the costs to customers low or are they just padding their bottom line? As the price of the solution falls, do these get passed on to the customer? We believe it is indeed possible to introduce a steady stream of innovations without raising price points. The true benefits of enterprise social software will only be realized if everyone can participate.
