Packages are too inflexible and don't provide competitive differentiation, but custom-built solutions are too slow [to develop] and costly. System integrators are starting to offer next-generation pre-built solutions. - Gartner Research

Usability

Have you ever visited a website or been in an elevator where you thought, "hmm, I wonder why they did it that way; that doesn't make any sense"? The usability of a website, software application, or even everyday product is not something most people seem to be concerned with...that is until they find it difficult or confusing to use. 

On an eCommerce site, poor usability leads to frustrated, dissatisfied users and lost revenue; whereas having an eCommerce website that is appealing and easy to use is likely to increase revenue.  On your corporate Intranet, easy to use business applications provide your employees with the tools they need to be efficient and productive.

The choice is clear, usability is an important factor when selecting your software systems. 

With easy to use technology tools, such as xSynthesis Business Applications, your customers, web visitors and employees have access to affordable, highly usable applications.
