Like all businesses today, you will rely in some way upon computer based systems. If these systems go wrong, or if they fail to realise your investment in them, the impact to your business can be devastating.
Unlike buying most things it is not possible to determine whether a system satisfies your requirement until it has been set up and runs properly, whereas with most other things it either works or it does not. It is therefore important to protect yourself adequately against any risk that your computer system fails to deliver against your expectations at the end of the implementation period. Contracts with your IT supplier need to cover the whole period – from placing an order, through the supply, configuration and successful implementation and operation of the system. Failure to set up an adequate contract with your supplier can result in your business incurring considerable cost to make your new system work for you.
