|Software Bloat is not pretty so why do we have it?|
The other guilty party is the business people who commission these bloated software projects. Talk to any developer and you will hear stories of reports written for only one user of a system. You will also hear stories of features added to systems to deal with one client or situation. Additionally, features will be added to satisfy the political needs of an organization while not making software any easier to use. Needless to say, these situations tend to drive software developers and customers batty because these additional features represent nothing but wasted time and money from the developer. It also represents frustration for the customer as they attempt to use the software which has grown more complicated.This is why when we founded E3 systems we have made a point of trying to make the software as easy to use as possible. Life is too short to spend time in training manuals and struggling to figure out how something works. Many businesses do not have time to train their people so it is important that software is intuitive and easy to operate. Most people just want to write out a packing slip or print an invoice. You shouldn’t need a degree in computer science to make that happen.
Our Sully 2.0 system makes it easy to do Bills of Lading, Packing Slips, Invoices and purchase orders. Drop us a line and we will be happy to show you.
Until then I suppose you are going to have to suffer with bloated software.Until next time.
