6 Stress-Inducing Thoughts You Have When Switching Membership Software

By: Eric McDonald
May 24, 2017

I’m one of those people who’s a planner and I have a backup for everything. In my house, I have old routers and cable modems so I can get back online in moments. I keep the last generation of my smartphone so I have an immediate backup in the event of an accidental drop, and when I travel, I pack twice what I need. I never want to be in a situation where there isn’t a backup for something I could have reasonably predicted. And I guess that fits my background, too. I used to work in radio, where our studios had a backup battery and generator for power, two systems that ran the audio, three links to the transmitter, two transmitters, two antennas, and two transmitter sites. That’s just how my brain works, and if you’re in the IT department at your organization—there’s a good chance you and your coworkers think in a similar way.

5 Ways the Membership Software Search Is Exactly Like Dating

By: Chandra Chakravarthi
April 28, 2017

Love it or hate it, dating—more specifically online dating—is always a weird experience because it’s the only solid way to meet someone these days. This is something I had to dive right into when I moved to a new city because I didn’t know a single person. And guess what, it wasn’t just dating with the hopes of meeting a significant other, I also went on friend dates. Yes, friend dates are normal thing people do. To my surprise, I discovered some apps that help you do just that. I decided to give it a try because I use dating apps, so how awkward can it be to make platonic friendships through the same way.

Implementation is the final hurdle before you can breathe that sigh of relief and put a system change behind you. But rest and relaxation (ok, maybe it’s not that euphoric, but at least the chance to not constantly think about changing systems) will only get further away if you fall into some common implementation pitfalls.
