Inspired by the kickoff and the book “What would Google do?” I have some ideas on what we could do if we would really try to reinvent ourselves. So here is the second of a series of columns.
Part 2: Technical Support Website Win-Win Opportunity
- The company that accepts the challenge to build an excellent technical support website in Uniface turns that cost centre into a profit centre by selling it to other companies. The website becomes part of their core business: making and selling software.
- The companies that buy this excellent support website do no longer have to spend energy in designing, building and maintaining it. This makes it possible for them to concentrate on their core business: making and selling software.
- As it would be built in Uniface it could be a perfect demo for what you can do with Uniface. It should be Web 2.0 and RIA etc, etc.
- While I don’t see the actual website as a good open source project, it might be interesting to gather the requirements for it as an open project. This means that potential customers get a say in what is going to be built, and the potential supplier knows what he has to build in order to sell it.
