Erp Software Solutions- Additional Applications Employed by Social Media Outlets for the Benefit of Their Subscribers/Users and in Order to Maximize the Latter’s Presence and Visibility on the World Wide Web: Why the Statistics/Data Management User Tools Provided by Youtube, Facebook, MySpace and Other Networking Social Sites or Blogs are the Most Valuable Means for Vendors in Determining the Market Success of Erp Software Solutions and Measuring Customer Satisfaction, Preference and Demographics on a Global Scale.
Erp Software Solutions_Part IV
Since releasing regular upgrades and updates to the customer's or business clientele is a vital process in maintaining market presence for a vendor of erp software solutions and any other software company- especially today, considering the current saturation of the market with too many sellers – the methodology of releasing imperfect upgrades or updates in frequent fashion has become the driving basis for gaining a stronger competitive edge on the global market.
Unfortunately, this procedure is ultimately detrimental to the customer base and the business clientele of the company, since it corrupts the vendor/customer relationship, which the vendor depends on- and which in the ERP industry is based on mutual trust and advantageous reciprocity where the gains for the vendor of erp software solutions equal the gains for the buyer. To make a comparison, Facebook, as of August 9, 2011, is currently undergoing more problems than ever before in its history, and more than any other social media outlet, threatened as it is by hacker groups determined to completely shut down their site.
However, in this regard, Facebook must also be viewed here as the proverbial “cause of its own demise”, due to its enduring competition with MySpace, an ongoing battle that has lasted for over two years, dividing the subscribers of facebook and myspace, and which has seen the frequent release of imperfect upgrades, add-ons, new erp applications, and user options before they were even ready for delivery to the public. The result was a high volume of bugs and viruses which affected users globally and diminished user activity on both Facebook and MySpace (MySpace, of course was just as much to blame as Facebook since it adopted the same Modus Operandi to keep up with its main competitor and this, inevitably, seriously angered its subscribers as well). The fact that this fragmenting of the solid vendor/customer/client relationship is becoming recognized by companies selling erp software solutions because they also underwent the same strategy in the first half of the last decade, is important because it shows how any company or organization can learn from the mistakes of businesses operating in multiple diverse industries.
At this point of our analysis, the most important question now, for any vendor of erp software solutions interested in comparing and examining all the advantages of the social media outlets for enhancing the visibility of their erp software solutions and services, is the following: How reliable is Facebook for users, despite its ongoing widespread popularity, when compared to other social media sites like Youtube, Twitter or MySpace (which have excellent security and privacy features) if the privacy of their subscribers’ accounts is constantly compromised as a consequence of this practice based on releasing imperfect updates/upgrades so that Facebook the company can benefit with respect to its other competitors in the market? The answer is simple: The system must be restructured to a more appropriate industrial model, which takes into consideration the needs of buyers and customers. What this means is that in the end it is customer loyalty and allegiance, which give a vendor the best competitive edge to keep ahead in the global arena. Because, just maybe, it is not these subtle – and somewhat “subversive“- strategies employed by the industry that ensure these vendors’ market survivability and business growth.
