I remember the first time I caught Tyler wearing his Dad's shoes- what a sweet moment. Little did I know that time would fly by and pretty soon that sweet child would be wearing shoes even larger than his Dad's size 12's!
No- one size does not fit all and while that precious childhood memory is a great reminder of that fact, the improper fit for any business solution does not yield the same cheerful results. In fact, choosing a business solution that does not fit your business specifically, can have damaging results. Let's see what happens in the credit card processing industry, if the wrong solution is selected:
TOO BIG: There are lots of robust processing solutions that can run many parts of your business and if you need them- they are amazing tools! If you don't, you can risk complicating a fairly simple process. Your team can endure needless frustration and worst of all, your clients could end up having a poor experience and that would not lead to more business!
TOO SMALL: On the other hand, if your business could benefit from the multiple tools associated with a robust processing solution, not having it can wreak havoc on your bottom line. Employee management, inventory control & credit card processing- for example- could really streamline your business and deliver the kind of service that keeps your clients coming back for more.
TOO EXPENSIVE: Since the bottom line of every business decision is important, the expense of your processing solution needs to be considered. Do all of the features and benefits warrant a bigger expenditure? Will your business be any better off once the investment is made? Spend too much and it takes too long to recoup the investment!
TOO CHEAP: On the other hand, taking a fiscal shortcut can also have negative repercussions on your bottom line! Be careful not to 'step over dollars to save a dime'. Would investing more money into your processing solution make the payment process so much easier that your team and your customers enjoy the process better? Sometimes the lowest price is not the best solution!
