Before choosing a new AMS vendor, ask yourself THIS question…

Before you sign up with a new AMS vendor, ask yourself this question: “Can I spend the next 7-10 years working with this company?”

Because if the answer is “no” or “I’m not sure” you might want to think again.

Buying an AMS is like entering a marriage. This isn’t a one-off purchase where you buy the product and never talk to the vendor again. Your vendor will be providing you with support and updates for as long as you use the software. To be as successful as possible, that relationship has to stay strong for years and years.

So ask yourself: “Can I spend the next 7-10 years working with this company?”
