Be A Tech Early Adopter
Not everyone is keen to be a tech early adopter for various reasons including fear of risk or failure. Rather than be a first mover, some will choose to wait for others to take the first leap and be a follower instead.
There is a thin line between the probability for failure and success thus the decision to be a tech early adopter may prove to be a worthwhile decision for many.
Similarly for all other technology adoptions, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) may be viewed as an early tech adoption – especially with new developments and technologies such as ERP on the cloud and new functions &features such as Field Service.
