Why re-invent the wheel? 

As a business executive, balancing your company’s immediate needs with its long-term growth is both paramount and challenging. Challenging questions arise, such as whether you should invest aggressively in long-term strategic initiatives, digital platforms and niche suppliers or take the less expensive, tactical and more conservative In-House "Build" approach to fix a narrow pain. The “build versus buy” dilemma continues in every enterprise and this white paper addresses the 10 factors that a business executive must evaluate by placing their end user needs in the forefront, before making this important decision.

Building custom software for your field workforce can unlock a host of benefits, but companies should only pursue that strategy if a) better software can provide a competitive advantage relative to your competitors, and b) you are building a large business that can spread the cost of a proprietary system over a large number of clients.
