Vaporware, Frankenstein, Whac-A-Mole – Three reasons why you should always do your due diligence before investing in commercial real estate asset management software.
You’ve heard about vaporware – software that is pitched as a completed platform, but is still missing critical components or is in a nascent beta stage?
Well, have you heard about Frankenstein Software? Have you played Vaporware Whac-A-Mole?
A few months ago, our own Daryl Pitts posted about Frankenstein software on LinkedIn, and his post got some traction among commercial real estate asset managers. So, we figured it would be prudent to dive a little deeper into this topic.
Frankenstein software is what happens when firms take existing pieces of software or functionality, stitch them together, and pitch it as a brand-new product. Think of it as a form of vaporware – it exists, but it exists as a collection of ill-matched components.
When the components don’t play well with each other, then you’re playing Whac-A-Mole. Problems are popping up like mechanical gophers, and you and your IT team are wasting time and money trying to smack them down.
There is a way to avoid both vaporware and Frankenstein software – and that’s by selecting a proven commercial real estate asset management software solution. (Doing so means you won’t be wasting time playing Whac-A-Mole.)
